Introducing the Voltex Hybrid Electric Heat Pump Water Heater
The Voltex system by AO Smith uses heat pump technology to provide a more efficient way to heat water with electricity. Voltex pulls heat from the surrounding air where it is installed (in your garage for example) and deposits the heat into the tank. This produces a very efficient way of heating water and, as a bonus, the by product is cooler, dehumidified surrounding air. If your hot water heater is in your garage, the Voltex Heat Pump Hot Water System uses the hot air from your garage to heat the water and removes the humidity to produce a cooler, more comfortable garage temperature.
Maximize Energy Savings with Variable Operating Modes
The Voltex Electric Heat Pump Hot Water Heater offers 4 different operating modes that allow you to choose the most efficiency based on climate, demand and installation.
EFFICIENCY MODE: Extracts warmth from the surrounding air, concentrating the heat and transferring in to the water.
HYBRID MODE: Uses the heat pump for efficiency, but will also use the element for quick recovery following increased hot water usage.
CONVENTIONAL: Operates as a conventional electric water heater, utilizing the elements only for conditions when limited ambient heat is available.
VACATION: One touch operation maintains a minimal tank temperature during vacation or extended absence to reduce operating costs and provide freeze protection.
