Hybrid Hot Water Heaters

For those of us without gas, has anyone had experience with these Hybrid Hot Water Heaters that combine a electric coil with a heat pump?

Looking at the GE unit:

yes, get one. what do you want to know?

use much less energy and a side benefit is free cooling and dehumidification, which for your location in NC is a great benefit!

ps- make pic smaller so your thread isn't as annoying

How does this compare to a gas water heater in terms of energy cost?

I would be interested in the future but I'd have to run a 240V line to my utility room to power this thing and if the savings are super substantial, it's not really worth it.
