Rated 5 out of 5 by from Water heats to specified temp. I have only had it installed for 2 weeks. It is efficient so far but a little more noisy then I thought. Also very heavy so difficult to get into house so get lots of friends to help. I can't comment on change in energy use yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hybrid Water Heater Is The Way To Go! Days of research paid off! Money well spent! For six people it gets the job done and then some. Love the features. It is loud but sits in our garage so we dont notice it. Would recommend this or a smaller model if needed. AO Smith should be proud!

The Voltex® Hybrid Electric Heat Pump reduces water heating cost by up to 66% through an innovative design that pulls environmental heat while dehumidifying and cooling the ambient air at the same time.

The PHPT-80 uses heat pump technology to deliver tremendous savings. The 80-gallon tank enables you to maximize your savings by generating heat through the heat pump technology instead of the heating elements. It also offers premium features like a user-friendly LCD display, vacation mode, and a powered anode that protects your tank for 10 years. In addition to the heat pump technology, this model also has two heating elements that help the water heater recover quickly during periods of high demand.

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 copper condenser coil around the tank and transfers the heat to the water
