Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Energy Efficient! Serves a large family well I bought this water heater through a special order (happy to see it's available as a regular online order now!) a few months ago. It's been up and running for 3 months now and using the Econet app I can see that I've used 370 kWh in that time to heat water. If I add in the electricity used to heat the house during that time (~4 COP) ground source heat pump, then I double that to 740 kWh, still only costing me just over $25/month (Ontario off-peak all in cost including tax) to run. My old natural gas water heater was running at about $40/month including the monthly gas charge, so I do save a few dollars per month with the unit vs gas. If you're on electric resistance water heating, you'll save a fortune if you have efficient space heating. If you are on electric resistance heating, it'll cost you more money during the heating season than just electric resistance water heating, if you run the heat pump, but you can put it in electric resistance only mode during that time. I am expecting the summer savings to be even greater when this unit will also double as a partial dehumidifier and AC in the basement. We have a few teenagers in the house and a number of kids and have rarely run low on hot water (there were times our gas heater couldn't keep up either). I run it on heat pump only mode, however when we do need a boost, I turn it to the Energy Saver Mode that also uses the electric elements and then we have plenty of hot water for all - I've actually only used this setting twice in 3 months. The app makes it easy to change settings. A draw back of the app would be that on the unit itself you can see what temperature the water in the unit is at, but in the app that is not possible. Installation was straight forward, although you will need a drain nearby to drain the condensation from the heat pump. The unit needs a 30 A breaker to power the electric elements, but the heat pump draws only about 400 W per hour. Overall I am very satisfied with this unit and would recommend it to anyone looking to replace an electric resistance water heater or looking to electrify and move away from natural gas.

I should have been clearer .. I am in BC Canada. The answer below to Norah says this item relates to Rheem Model PROPH80 T2 RH350 DCB. The rebate list also shows PROPH80 T2 RH350 D and PROPH80 T2 RH350 D15. What is the difference?

Would this unit supply enough hot water for domestic and infloor heat.

Asked by: Bella
Hello Bella, Thank you for reaching out. This heater Is designed for use for domestic hot water only and as a result of the heat pump system you are able to use the unit to cool off areas of the house. I wouldn't however suggest using this heater for in-floor heat as well as domestic hot water without the use of an air handler or other Hydronic system as most in-floor heat systems are known as "closed loop" which isn't allowable for this particular unit. I would suggest looking into our line of Combi-boilers as these units are designed specifically for this purpose.
