We live in Canada at 54 degrees north and are in Winter 5 months of the year, see temps as low as -30C.
Our gas hot water heater is 16 years old and while we aren’t having any issues with it yet I wanted to be proactive and change it on my schedule, not as an emergency in the middle of the night.
We have a Solar Panel system that’s generates about 8000 kWH/year, our current consumption is about 5000 kWH/year.
I would like to migrate away from gas and put in an electric heat pump water heater and a heat pump/electric furnace. Does anyone have any experience using these in colder climates and know what their power consumption is.
We are looking at the Rheem Prestige 50 gal. Have not done much research into home heating yet.
