How it Works

The Voltex Hybrid Electric water heater utilizes heat pump technology to provide a more efficient way to heat water with electricity.
• Heat from the surrounding air is pulled into the heat pump through a fan at the top
• The heat is absorbed by the refrigerant in the heat pump's evaporator coil
• The temperature of the refrigerant is increased as it is pumped by a compressor
• Hot refrigerant is passed through the condenser coil around the tank and transfers the heat to the water
