Re: Sanyo mini split AC (inverter/variable speed)
Rich, I use the Nyle Geyser HPWH. We too experience ~50F in the basement in the winter where it is installed. It works well down there and we spend ~$16 per month on hot water in the winter. Like you said, the dehumidification is very welcome here too.
The Geyser is a retrofit unit that connects to the existing electric WH tank. It can utilize one element in the water tank if needed however we do not. The outlet air can be ducted which is great for our application. They were at $950 last fall, direct from the factory in ME. Qualified for the tax credit too.
