I purchased this from Amazon 2 weeks ago because they had the best price and no stores stock this as a grab and go. We intend to use this in heat pump mode only that is the reason we chose the 80 gallon model, the government electric version ( GeoSpring ) is only 50 gallons so you can easily find the need to run the expensive inductive heat elements. This water heater is branded "American Water Heater" but is imported from China by A.O. Smith. I did know it was an A.O. smith product but I was unaware that it was made in China. After a quick disappointment I reminded myself that all of my American made water heaters have prematurely failed (6 or 7 years, like a clock), so maybe its time to try something different. Things to keep in mind would include the cold air that it produces; I am in Ca. so it's a good thing but might not be for everyone also the height is over 80 inches so it might not fit in some applications. I would not use this in a residential closet; A garage or large utility room would work much better. The noise is not that bad but I did notice that the filter is too restrictive and has plastic molding flaws that keep the air from moving freely. The noise is greatly reduced when the filter is off so I might call in for a new filter or make a better one on my own. It looks like it draws about 1100 watts when running and after a 15 gallon draw it runs for about 1:20 minutes to get back to temp, but with 80+ gallons this should work fine in economy mode for most applications. Also you must keep in mind that the installation of this heater will cost more than the standard do to the weight, extra drain lines and maybe a electical run if you are changing from a gas heater. So far I am pleased with it and stats are approximate but I will update when I have more time with it.

We live 60 miles north of New York City, we heat entirely with wood. Problem was that I needed to burn our oil furnace for domestic hot water, until I installed my American Heat Pump Tank. This thing is beautiful. We are a family of 3, (including a 10 year old daughter). We rarely run out of hot water, and when we do, it's because my daughter is lounging in a tub too long. We are 100% off burning oil now (except for winter traveling which is rare), as we've never had this tank on anything but the high efficiency, Heat Pump setting. In the summer, this tank cools, circulates air, and dehumidifies the basement too, an added bonus.
This is how we use our tank. We have a wood burning stove in the basement we keep burning all winter long, at night when we go down to the basement to load the wood stove for the evening, we turn up the Heat Pump Tank to its max, 150* to take advantage of our smart electric meter (day and night rates). In the morning when we wake up we have 80 gallons of 150* water awaiting us. When we go downstairs to load the basement wood stove in the morning, we turn the tank down to 125* to prevent it from kicking on during the day, more expensive electrical rate times. If we REALLY have a cold snap, and the water coming into the house is that much colder, I'll leave the daytime temp of the tank at 135* to compensate. If I know my daughter is planning on an hour long tub, I'll take my shower a bit early to let the tank re-heat in time. In the summer we generally set the tank to 120* and forget about it.

We have the same American water heater labeled under the Whirlpool brand. I bought it from Lowes in April 2013, and it just now paid for itself. Not only are we saving money to heat the water, but the way it dehumidifies and cools in the summer months is also saving us. In addition, I vent the exhaust up to the family room during the summer. By tracking the daily Kwh usage, I found it beneficial to run it in "Heat Pump only" mode in the winter . The extra cost to heat the space is more than offset by the savings. Our house is electric only, so having natural gas available may be more beneficial in your situation.
It's tall and weighs 410lbs, so make sure to do your homework prior to the install. I paid Lowes to deliver and set it in place.
It appears the GE HP water heater is a more popular seller, and I assume it's because of the cost difference. But if you're looking for a solid reliable unit, I don't think you would be disappointed with this one.

Has been woring great. Excellent cost savings for family of 4. Only drawback is the cold air it blows out into basement in the winter - think about ducting to the outside.
