Save Money on Hot Water

Water heaters account for 14% to 25% of the total energy consumed in a typical home today. On average, water heaters use more energy than a household’s refrigerator, dishwasher, clothes washer and dryer combined. The great news is that Voltex has been designed to dramatically decrease the cost of operation. In fact, Voltex can translate into quite significant savings for the homeowner over the course of its lifespan. Just how significant? With up to a 2.75 Energy Factor (EF) rating (compared to an average .87−.92 EF rating of a standard electric model), these innovative heat pump water heaters can cut annual operating costs by more than half.

Savings are Greater Where Electricity Rates Are Higher

The greatest savings and quickest payback occur in regions where the average temperatures are colder, like Maine. Operating five months out of the year in heat pump mode where electricity rates are two to three times higher will yield more savings than operating 10 months in the heat pump mode where electricity rates are lower.
