They are rated at 6,000 btus per hour and can be used to heat electric water heaters with the electric element turned down.
These units extract heat from the room air and also dehumidify the room air. They should be in a room that is at least 1,000 cubic feet (A 12′ X 12′ X 8′ room). A regular basement is the usual place to install these.
These units can be retrofitted to work with any style of heat storage tank, not just electric tanks, by some simple wiring changes and components. These are a great back up system for solar or wood heating systems.
