A. O. Smith’s commercial heat pump water heater for light commercial applications is ideal for use in establishments such as restaurants, schools, retail buildings or any facility that would traditionally use a standard commercial electric water heater. The heater has a 4.2 Coefficient of Performance and can save up to $3,500 in annual energy costs as compared to a standard electric commercial water heater, the company points out. This results in an average payback on investment in two years or less, A. O. Smith adds. The CHP-120 is Energy Star qualified, making it eligible for many local utility rebates, A. O. Smith notes.
