Voltage, or volts, is a measurement of the difference between two electric fields (in heating terms, the difference between the Earth's electrical field and the electricity running through your wires).
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.
Water heaters typically use more energy than most other household appliances. On average, they use more energy than a household's refrigerator, dishwasher, clothes washer and dryer combined. The great news is that the Voltex has been
designed to dramatically decrease the cost of operation. In fact, the Voltex can translate into quite significant savings for the homeowner over the course of its lifespan. Just how significant? With its 2.3 EF rating (compared to an average
.93 -.95 EF rating of a standard electric model), this innovative water heater can cut annual operating costs by more than half.
The Voltex Hybrid Electric Heat Pump Water Heater can be effectively used in all areas of the U.S. Based on the location, either or both of the heating components - heat pump and traditional heating elements - will operate for optimal

Working well in the winter!

Comments about 80 Gallon Voltex Residential Hybrid Electric Heat Pump Water Heater:
I just purchased the 80 gallon Voltex. Easy to install except for additional drain lines you wouldn't have with a regular electric water heater. It is February of 2014, in Wisconsin, and I am only using the "efficiency" mode. The water heater is located in my basement in an enclosed storage room, about 400 sf. My basement is a walkout that has about 1500 sf finished. The water heater blows cold air for about 90 minutes while reheating the water after three morning showers and drops the temp in the storage room about 10 degrees. I can live with that as the rest of the basement finished area is mostly unaffected. I have not received an electric bill yet so I can't speak on the electric usage cost, but if it is what is claimed by the manufacturer, I'll be happy.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

So far, so good.
from South central PA
I installed this water heater to replace my on demand system. We have not run out of hot water yet and my wife washes clothes a lot. The unit is very heavy(410 lbs) so I had professional movers get it to the basement. It installed easily, works fine, and seems to be the solution I am looking for the high electric bill and cold water sandwich in the shower also. The unit blows a lot of cold air in heat pump mode so for the winter it will be set to standard element operation, but the sticker claim of $200 per year will be yet to be seen until the spring when I go back to hybrid mode. A.O. smith was the best choice I could think of because of the glass lined tank. I have a 50 gal one that is over 25 years old and still works, I hoping for the same results with this one.

Hybrid water heater review
from Jupiter, FL
I just changed from a 50 gallon propane water heater, to the 80 gallon Voltex hybrid/electric heat pump water heater. I run 6 shower heads in my luxury, dual shower bathroom. The propane heater was cranked all the way up to 160 degrees to help prevent running out of hot water. The Voltex is 80 gallons, a substantial increase in size, so for the same shower performance, the water can be less hot. I'm totally satisfied with the performance of the hot water from the Voltex.I was spending about $200 per month in $4/gal propane, which is absurd. The Voltex, in heat pump mode, consumes about 4.8 to 6 KWH per day. Or, in real world terms about a dollar a day around here. Much better. Even if this thing needs repairs after a few years, it's still worth it for me. As my payback time is 1 year. I have it in my garage, where the heat pump's cold air output helps keep it cooler. It's not air conditioning, but it does cool and dry the air when it's heating the water. I am seeing 83 degree garage temps, where as I saw 95 to 100 before.
from Chevy Chase, MD
We installed the Voltex water heater a few weeks ago and have been very satisfied with its performance so far. We like that it allows for easy, precise selection of water temperature via the control panel, which is very simple and easy to understand. It's difficult for me to peg the electricity savings specifically at this point because our entire house is undergoing a lot of changes that affect our electricity usage, but I'm trusting the science on this one. Anecdotally, I have it on the full efficiency setting which means that it only uses the heat pump so I know easily when it is or is not using electricity to heat the water, and I can say that it must be well insulated because it does not kick on very often. One note of advice -- we had to also get a pressure control valve added to our water intake, and it ran a couple hundred dollars installed, so you may want to figure that into your costs if necessary. I'd consult the manual before you buy if you're worried about that. It does make the room in which it is situated cooler and drier due to the dehumidifying effect, but that shouldn't be a problem for most people who likely have basement installations (where dehumidification is a nice bonus...) When the heat pump operates, it is a little bit noisy too, but only to the point where it might make a conversation difficult if you were standing right next to it. Don't really hear it outside of the room it is in.

Very efficient, but need the right space
from Callaway, MD
Had this unit almost two months now, and for my family of four, this water heater is saving me $50 or more a month in electricity. With the tax credits, I figure it will pay for itself in less than two years without even factoring in the fact that I needed a new water heater anyway. However, things to keep in mind: 1) It needs lots of reasonably warm air to be most efficient. When the heat pump is running, it is moving A LOT of air. My water heater was in a closet in my finished basement and I decided to change the doors to louvered doors and add a couple vents for air movement. Even so, it's still better when I just leave the doors open. 2) The exhaust air is quite cold. This will be great come summer, but in winter it makes whatever space it's in very cold unless it's by a heat source. I run a pellet stove in my basement because it's my entertainment room as well, and the cold front from the water heater fights the warm front from the pellet stove. However, it only runs when it needs to, which translates for us to about 3-4 hours in the evening and a couple hours in the morning. 3) A little noisy. Sounds like a window air conditioner, but that should be expected. 4) Pay attention to the dimensions of your space and the pathway to get the water heater there. This thing is VERY heavy and it's hard to truly appreciate how tall it is until you stand next to it. (It is actually slightly taller than a standard doorway, so it has to be tilted to get through.) [...] 5) It needs an expansion tank on the water line if your house doesn't have one. My house didn't and since I hadn't had any problems, I didn't think about it until the T/P valve started leaking a little every day. That stopped when I put a 4.4 gal expansion tank in my system. All that being said, anyone buying this is doing so for one thing: savings on electricity, and it does that very well. The display is simple and easy to use, the hot water is plentiful (I haven't run out, even with 3 showers, laundry, and a dishwasher going), and as I started with, the electricity savings is substantial, especially if you're in a high cost electricy area like me (MD). My electricity usage last month was the lowest I have ever had in this house in 11 years; a whole 30% lower than my previous record.
