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

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.
