Rated 4 out of 5 by from fairly noisy in heat pump mode Understood from the installer that Hybrid mode would lower room temp about 5 deg. Seems it is actually more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Functions as advertised but noiser than expected The product works well. Efficiency is good. Controls are clear and easy to use. I am satisfied except for the noise produced by the fan when the heat pump is running. The water heater is located in the basement and the fan can be heard through the flooring and insulation in a 1st floor bedroom 25 feet away. It is loud enough that ear plugs at night are needed to mask the sound. A better designed fan or baffle is a much needed improvement. The compressor is reasonably quite.

The Voltex® Hybrid Electric Heat Pump reduces water heating cost by up to 66% through an innovative design that pulls environmental heat while dehumidifying and cooling the ambient air at the same time.

The SHPT-50 uses heat pump technology to deliver tremendous savings, by generating heat through the heat pump technology instead of the heating elements. It offers premium features including a user-friendly display, vacation mode to save money while you are away, and a heavy duty anode that protects your tank for 10 years. In addition to the heat pump technology, this model also has two heating elements that help the water heater recover quickly during periods of high demand.

How it Works

The Voltex Hybrid Electric water heater utilizes heat pump technology to provide a more efficient way to heat water with electricity.
• Heat from the surrounding air is pulled into the heat pump through a fan at the top
• The heat is absorbed by the refrigerant in the heat pump's evaporator coil
• The temperature of the refrigerant is increased as it is pumped by a compressor
• Hot refrigerant is passed through the copper condenser coil around the tank and transfers the heat to the water
