Mystery Motor is actually a heat pump water heater fan...how to specify?

device-detection

#1

There’s a 233 watt mystery motor that I’m 99% sure is the fan for our water heater heat pump. It’s the only part of the water heater that’s been identified thus far. So - do I classify it as a water heater? A fan? Or leave the device classification untouched (motor) until the whole water heater is identified?

Thanks

I’d just call it “water heater” and wait for any other components to be identified. If it’s a heat pump water heater, you may be waiting a long time since they’re so energy efficient and not as common as conventional water heaters - so I wonder if Sense has a viable model developed yet.

Merge function in app should let you combine ‘fan’ with other Water Heater draws. Should cycle frequently if shower/bath daily. i’ve got one too; has yet to be ID’d. Maybe post a screen shot?
