The Voltex Hybrid Electric Heat Pump Water Heater is one of the most cost effective water heaters on the market. Its extremely efficient operation can save you up to 60% on your water heating costs versus a standard electric heater – at national average electricity rates, that amounts to a savings of almost $400 every year.
The Voltex offers additional features including a user-friendly display, vacation mode to save money while you are away, and a heavy duty anode that protects your tank for 10 years. If you have questions about shipping, find our policy here.
The unit may be ducted with the use of a ducting kit (sold separately).
Is a Hybrid or Heat Pump Water Heater (HPWH) a good fit for my home?
Each home is a little different, so please carefully consider each of the following questions about your installation location. If you’re unsure or need more info, please give us a call!
Sound: Is your water heater located where sound could be a nuisance? HPWHs generate sounds at about the level of a modern dishwasher (around 49 decibels) – it’s not loud, but as you likely are not used to your water heater making any noise, this is something to consider.
Cool air: Is your water heater located in living space? While in operation, HPWHs release cool, dry air into the surrounding space. Ducting can be used to exhaust the air to the outside (if adjacent to an exterior wall).
Space: Do you have 700 cubic feet of space around the water heater? HPWHs require this amount of air-flow to operate most efficiently. Units can be installed in smaller areas if ducting or other air-flow strategies are used.
Size/height: Do you have adequate height clearance? HPWHs are slightly larger than similar capacity standard water heaters. They also require an additional 6” top clearance to access the air filter.
Condensate. Do you have a location to route the condensate? HPWHs produce condensate that must be routed to a floor drain, other plumbing drain, or to a condensate pump.
