Questions & Answers

Can this be installed in an enclosed 16 Sq ft utility room in the garage?

Asked by: aaa
You are not giving enough information ! This or any heat pump water heater simply needs a drain AND enough heat (measured by temperature and or humidity. (Moist air, by the way, contains a HUGE amount of heat ! ) If you are generally above 67 degrees, you are good. Go below that and expect longer hot water recovery times. The question I would ask you is what are temperatures are in your utility room Jan - Dec ? You can estimate or you can buy a reliable digital temperature meter and find out.

How much condensate does this unit produce in a given day/week?

I'm planning to get this unit to install in my basement. However, I don't have a drain anywhere next to my hot water heater. I really don't want to tear up my basement floor to add a drain yet. I'm planning to use a 5 gallon bucket first, then add a drain or condensate pump later. Roughly how much water does it produce?
Asked by: John
It produces roughly 4 waters per day.

Does this unit need to be vented like a gas water heater?

Asked by: GLLLA
No, EXCEPT that if you open the windows in your house Spring and Fall, it will actually operate more efficiently. Temperature will rise in the house, therefore it will operate more effeciently ! DON'T DO IT IN WINTER ! Remember there IS NO FLAME !

Performance Platinum 50 Gal. 10-Year Hybrid High Efficiency Electric Tank Water Heater is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 90.

I don't give praise lightly but this is an awesome water heater and I love it. Its a smart machine and it has several easy-to-set modes to get it to perform however you like. Has vacation mode, heat pump only mode, electric element only mode, energy saver mode, and high recovery mode (runs both heat pump and elements at the same time). I also love the excellent status information it gives you about what is running or not, bottom tank temperature and top of tank temperature, lets you know exactly what is going on. Only problem was the difficult installation. I installed mine in a utility closet, so I had to install ducting for intake and exhaust air. Water inlets and outlets were in different position than old standard electric water heater so had to reconfigure my plumbing, too. Was quite a bit of work, but well worth it. Best situation for installing this water heater would be in an attached garage, so no venting or ducting required then. I love this water heater, performs well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Faulty Wiring I immediately got error code A007 indicating a problem with compressor. Customer service at Rheem was obviously guys with no technical skill reading from a menu of things to try. They air shipped a new control module and I got it the next day. Discovered that the brown wire was in the yellow terminal and visa-versa, so obviously a mistake during assembly. I switched the wires and it worked. Because of this problem, I am giving it a low rating. However, if it continues to run without problems, I would recommend this unit. It is not very loud, has a nice, easy to use touch screen and the error code feature saved a lot of hassles. I have a smart meter and my electrical use is noticeably lower. Too soon to tell, but I think it will live up to its claimed savings. If you have error code A007 immediately upon start-up, you might want to make sure the color coded wires in the control module are in the correct terminal. Hope this saves someone the aggravation I went through.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Well This was a replacement for an older standard water heater. This was delivered to my local HD for customer P/U. My Son in law and I easily lifted this into our small truck. We secured it in the truck standing up as you are not to lay this type of water heater down. It came well packaged. No damage when we opened the box. We installed this ourselves. If you are a DIYer I would recommend you download and read the installation manual in advance so that you can see what pipes and fittings may be needed for your situation. This saved us from having to make a second trip as we purchased everything we needed in advance. You will need a drainage pipe from the condensation line to an outside location. You will also need to install a drain pan underneath the heater as there is an overflow sensor that is included. If you're familiar with standard water heater installations you shouldn't have much trouble with this.

Here is how best to install the Rheem heat pump water heater: First, load it into your truck. Then, drive directly to the dump and push it out the truck bed. Be prepared for the additional recycling fee. Then return to Home Depot and order a Westinghouse traditional heater. This will save you the hassle of the complex installation of a total piece of Rheem junk. My expensive Rheem heat pump water heater lasted fourteen months before the mother board and/or sensors blew-out. When contacting the company for assistance, there were no technicians within sixty miles who could work on the thing. The closest technician had no interest in servicing our area. I could buy and replace the mother board for nearly four hundred dollars, with no assurance that would solve the issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with it!!! I needed to get off of propane since I was paying 3.50 to 4.50 per gallon for propane and I had a propane water heater. The price is rather high however I wanted an energy star water heater and this fit the bill. I was able to install it myself doing the plumbing and electrical. I didn't bother with the wifi add on, since its really not needed. The screen on the water heater is excellent and easy to use. You can set the mode, which I just keep on heat pump mode and I keep my temp. around 130 degrees. Its easy enough to use the screen to switch modes or temps, so no need for wifi add on. Also the sound? I have mine in the basement and its quiet!!!! Like I mentioned I had a propane heater that used an exhaust fan that was so loud, but this water heater I don't hear it at all! Now I am not sure how long Rheem will make these hybrids since GE just announced in August 2016 that they will stop making their hybrids because of low demand and profitability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great !!!l Love it I have owned this water heater for about 2 months and the energy savings are about 75% less compared to my old 50 gallon conventional water heater .I purchased the extended warranty for additional piece of mind, and hope it continues to work like this long into the future , it was really easy to install and anyone wanting real energy savings should research heat pump units. I keep it working in heat pump only mode and have more than enough hot water on demand, an additional benefit it keeps my garage about 10 degrees cooler. My dog loves it also. Wish I had more time to give good advise about quality however right now it seems well built and I felt Rheem does produce a good product as I have owned a/c systems built from them in the past ,the only negative is it keeps the water about 5-8 degrees cooler than I have it set for. Do yourself a favor and do some research on heat pump units before buying any conventional unit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Replaced gas with this unit I replaced my gas unit with this in anticipation of installing solar panels. Rebates and tax credit made it practical for me. Even without solar....this heater looks to be very efficient - if you believe the annual cost stickers. A few things you should know if you're going to replace a gas heater as I did. (1) You'll have to wire in a 30 amp circuit (2) The water inlet and outlet plumbing is not at the top. The hot water outlet is about 24 inches from the top and the cold water inlet is near the bottom. (4) You also need to plumb in a condensate drain line. I was able to do the plumbing and electrical myself but if you paid someone else it could get very expensive. (4) This heater is pretty loud when the heat pump operates. I would NOT be happy if this unit were in my living space instead of in my garage. I gave the installation a 3 because of the above. If you have the wiring and plumbing matches up....it would be a 5.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice water heater This water heater was a bit more to install than the old water heater. It required two condensate drains as well as the over pressure blow off line. I was able to tie all these in and vent it outside the house onto the patio. I put a clear hose on the secondary condensation line so that if the primary backs up I will have a visual indication so I can fix it. The condensation eventually caused a build up of mildew on the concrete so I had to extend the drain line along the house into the grass. The heater keeps my garage and laundry room cool during the summer. I was unable to notice a drop in electricity consumption when it was replaced but I can run this heater with a portable generator which will come in handy during the storm season. It has been installed for a few months and seems to be a very good piece of equipment.
