Voltex® Hybrid Electric Heat Pump 50-Gallon Water Heater

Voltex® Hybrid Electric Heat Pump 50-Gallon Water Heater

Model SHPT-50

ENERGY STAR
Voltex Hybrid Electric Heat Pump Water Heater SHPT-50 is rated 4.8462 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Functions as advertised but noiser than expected The product works well. Efficiency is good. Controls are clear and easy to use. I am satisfied except for the noise produced by the fan when the heat pump is running. The water heater is located in the basement and the fan can be heard through the flooring and insulation in a 1st floor bedroom 25 feet away. It is loud enough that ear plugs at night are needed to mask the sound. A better designed fan or baffle is a much needed improvement. The compressor is reasonably quite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great waterheater I am really excited about the hybrid aspect of this unit and that it cools my garage at the same time. I am not so happy that the old A O Smith water heater did not last five years. I hope this one is made better and will last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Water Heater! I have only had the heater for a month, however, it has been great. The electric use is down and I get more than sufficient hot water on Efficiency Mode, at least right now during the summer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from New SHPT 50 Water Heater / Heat Pump Purchased this product due to plumbing store recommendation and rebate. One BIG issue is the cold (in) and hot (out) connectors are on the lower side and bottom of the tank....looks fugly after install and you need more room to install due to piping run. Minor issues is that you need a unique screw head for the electrical fitting (some time of hex) and the noise of the heat pump fan. Fan noise can be heard...and I'm partially deaf. My hope is that the lower energy costs will outweigh the cons of the installation.

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 SHPT-50 uses heat pump technology to deliver tremendous savings, by generating heat through the heat pump technology instead of the heating elements. It offers premium 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. 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
