City Cabins home builder chooses to go big when adding hot water

High performance home builder Martha Rose thinks she may found the right solution for hot water supply for her newest City Cabins in Seattle’s Licton Spings neighborhood.  Deciding to go with A.O Smith’s Voltex Hybrid Electric water heater utilizes heat pump technology to provide a more efficient way to heat water with electricity.

How it works:

  • Heat from the surrounding air is pulled into the heat pump’s 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 to heat to the water

The 80 gallon Voltex is a real game changer for power hot-water consumers. Back to back showers, dish-washing and washing clothes can tax a normal hot water tank, home owners will be amazed at the hot-water output of the 80 gallon Voltex.
