Rated 5 out of 5 by from Energy Savings Noticed Immediately Since purchasing this product back in Sept 2014, our energy usage (supplied by our power company) has dramatically decreased. We went from a household with above average power usage to below average usage within weeks! If you have an old water heater and are considering buying a new unit, I would highly recommend the investment. We typically use the "hybrid" setting and have had no issues with lack of hot water. The vacation setting is also a nice convenience since you can set it to turn back on before you return home. We are a family of 4 (2 story family home with 3 baths).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use digital settings. Great technology using the rooms warm air to heat the water. Be sure your plumber installs an expansion tank, otherwise you'll be replacing your home's pressure reducer. That's was my plumber's mistake, not AO Smith's. This water heater is great, and I already saw a reduction in my monthly energy costs. Great investment.

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