These water heaters offer four operating modes:

  • Hybrid Mode: The default, recommended setting combines high energy efficiency with reduced recovery time.
  • Efficiency Mode: Provides the highest efficiency and lowest cost operation by using only the heat pump for water heating. Recovery time and efficiency will vary with ambient temperature and relative humidity of area/room where water heater is placed.
  • Electric Mode: Functions as a conventional electric unit, relying on only the heating elements for water heating.
  • Vacation Mode: Maintains a 60°F tank temperature. This mode is recommended when the water heater is not in use for a long period of time, to minimize energy consumption and prevent the water heater from freezing during cold conditions.
