I live in FL. My water heater is in the garage. It's HOT in my garage most of the year. HD is clearing out the 50 gal Rheem EcoSense heat pump water heater for $974 (normally $1498). I live in a 1400 sq ft home with two baths. It's just me in the house, most of the time.
My existing 30 gal electric heater works just fine but I'm enamored by the notion of having some help cooling the garage. Not to mention, the lowered electric bill (entire house is electric).
Any reason I shouldn't do this?
