Hybrid heat pump water heater, or other recommendations for WH?

14 years ago

I am investigating options for a new water heater. We currently have a traditional gas water heater but figured I'd check out other options before replacing with a similar one. I like saving energy and water whenever possible. Saving $ also good of course.

Anyone have knowledge of the GE Hybrid heat pump water heater to be released this November? http://www.geconsumerproducts.com/pressroom/press_releases/appliances/energy_efficient_products/doetanklesshybrid.htm Or any similar models from other mfrs? We do not need to replace our WH immediately.

I am not sure a tankless would be much $/energy/water savings for us.

Family of 4, moderate water users, use a water softener & RO for drinking, warm climate, water heater in garage.

The biggest problem we have is wasting 7-10 gal water while waiting for it to heat up in bathrooms and 4-5 gal in kitchen. I collect some in a bucket for the plants, but still not happy with this amt of wasted water. I looked into the recirc pumps a bit but they seemed complicated and $.

Any help or advice greatly appreciated. Thank you.
