A. O. Smith’s Voltex hybrid electric water heater integrates heat pump technology to produce a product twice as efficient as a standard electric water heater. Voltex pulls heat from the surrounding air and deposits it into an 80-gallon storage tank, allowing the heater to operate in the most efficient mode. With an Energy Factor of 2.3, Voltex is Energy Star-qualified and eligible for tax credit.
