Heating / Heat Pump Water Heater device


Please add type “Heat Pump Water Heater” (HPWH) to the Heating category of device types.

These devices have a heat pump compressor motor, a fan motor and conventional resistance elements. As well, there is an idle mode for the simple computer system that monitors temperature and makes decisions about what modes to deploy.

The existing devices Heat Pump and Water Heater are both simpler devices that do not encapsulate all the modes/loads of a HPWH.


I agree, some are too broad. I have a heat pump with auxiliary heat strips. They are both part of the heat pump system but I’d like to be able to group the auxiliary under heat-heat pump- auxiliary instead of calling the heat strips “other”
