    Hi,

    I did a lot of search and couldn't find an answer to my question. How cold can the HPWC still be functional ? I live in Canada and during the winter it can get as cold as -30C and I plan to install an HPWC outside wired at 80A.

    Thanks !

    The contactor is the only specific thing I saw inside the HPWC's that had a temp rating if I remember correctly. I will have to pop one open and re-read it. I believe it was only a max temp thing though. I have used a Public HPWC in -15*F, worked no problem, though, thats quite a bit warmer then -30*C :)
