The Voltex Hybrid Electric Heat Pump Water Heater is an integrated system that utilizes heat pump technology to provide a more efficient way to heat water with electricity. The Voltex pulls heat from the surrounding air and deposits the heat into the tank. The end result is very efficient production of hot water, with cooler and dehumidified air as a welcome by-product. Over twice as efficient as a standard electric water heater and easy to install, the Voltex more than lives up to its impressive reputation. With flexible operation modes, this is a water heater designed to work in many different applications.
•INCREASED STORAGE ENHANCES EFFICIENCY: The high capacity tank enables the heat pump to operate more frequently instead of the elements. This provides higher energy efficiency and lower operating costs, saving money for the home-owner. Additional storage facilitates heat pump performance even in cooler climates.
•ENERGY EFFICIENCY: 2.3 Energy Factor conserves energy and meets Energy Star ® requirements
•CHOICE OF OPERATING MODES: Select from Efficiency, Hybrid, or conventional Electric modes to match heating requirements to environmental conditions. Hybrid mode automatically adjusts between compressor and element, depending upon heat requirements. Vacation mode protects system components from freeze damage.
•BACKUP ELECTRIC ELEMENTS: Long-lasting incoloy heating elements, 240V/2000W lower and 240V/4500W upper, helps heat water when in conventional Electric or Hybrid modes.
•ELECTRONIC USER INTERFACE: User friendly electronic control module designed for easy interaction. Large LCD temperature display shows temperature in °F or °C, operating conditions, and service messages in easy to read format. Backlit mode buttons, safety lock to deter unwanted access and three-line display communicates current status and error messages when applicable.
•POWERED ANODE: A powered anode is installed to protect the tank from corrosion and eliminate the service requirements of a conventional anode rod.
•DEHUMIDIFICATION: Ideal for basements, the compressor transfers heat to your water while dehumidifying the ambient air. Washable heat pump filter is easily removed for routine cleaning.
