Endless Hot Water

The comprehensive line of A. O. Smith tankless water heaters are an excellent whole-home water heating solution that supply endless hot water.

The comprehensive line of A. O. Smith tankless water heaters provide hot water on-demand.

• A hot water tap is opened
• The opened tap allows water to flow through the water heater. An internal water flow sensor detects this flow
• Upon flow detection, the flow sensor sends the activation signal to the computer board
• The computer automatically ignites the burner
• As water flows through the heat exchanger, it absorbs heat from the burner
• By the time the water exits the heater, it has reached the designated set temperature
• When the hot water tap is closed, the water heater automatically turns off

Rebate and incentive programs provide cash-back to consumers for the purchase of appliances that meet certain energy efficiency standards. Often, these standards are tied to the ENERGY STAR® certification program.

Cash for Appliances is designed to encourage the purchase of energy efficient appliances. Consumers who purchase ENERGY STAR® certified or CEE qualified appliances can receive cash rebates. Most states are offering rebates in the $50 to $250 range.
