Water heater advice
Posted by Anthony on January 30, 2003 at 23:02:40:
We're getting ready to build a new home and as an incentive to install geothermal H/C, our utility company offers a free high efficiency 75 gallon Marathon electric water heater. We plan to have a desuperheater installed with our geothermal system to recover some of the heat from the heat pump and provide supplemental heat to the water heater. Our plumber had originally included in his bid two 40 gallon LP water heaters. Should we ask the plumber to forget about the two 40 gallon water heaters and go with the "free" 75 gallon water heater? I would like advice on the efficiency, reliability, etc. concerning these options. Thank you!
