It sounds like this is the one to get (GE) as Sears indeed has it on sale.
I am close to pulling the trigger on this and balance out my electric consumption. Only loss I would have is selling or tossing my whirlpool traditional electric water heater (400 bucks). Maybe I'll wait until after my annual bill comes in April.

The lowes near me had an open box of the GE heat pump water heater. They had it marked $1250 and since iw was from February, I was able to talk them down to $930. I also got the 10 year extended warranty for $80. This will be going into the house we are about to move in to. It was too good a deal to pass up, especially because that house is all electric.

If my basement wasn't so cold, I would really consider Heatpump HW..
Anyways, if you are in the US military (or a Vet), you can get 10% off
at Lowes and Home Depot. Just bring proof.
I'm not sure about the top-end limit per-purchase.

Do you have to have a credit account with them to get the 10% veterans discount? Reason I ask is my brother wants to buy a new log splitter. Solarvic

Xringer we are close enough to have compatible cellars. We use an HP water heater in ours. It still works great. We use the Nyle (Northroads) Geyser retrofit. Our basement get to 50F. I'm not sure how the others would work but it made a large impact on our power consumption. We do not use the aux element scheme either....
