Heat pumps are water heaters which absorb free ambient air to heat up water. They save 80% of heating energy or around $900 a year.
Working range: 7 to 45°C.
After 10 years, other brands drop below 60% efficiency. High integrity AOS heat pumps does not fall below the 90% efficiency range.
Your AOS heater remains a top performer, even after many years of service.
A. O. Smith is America’s top water heater and the largest water heater manufacturer worldwide. They commit US$83 million to deep research on water technology, maintaining their edge with a steady stream of innovative patents.
With over 150 years of water heater innovation, A. O. Smith is the leading producer of water heaters.
A. O. Smith does not outsource manufacturing. They own each of their 21 factories worldwide. The factories are 95% automated for optimal quality control.
Other heat pumps have compressors that run as loud as 80dB. The noise level increases over time.
AOS heaters are built with silent compressors that never exceed 50 decibels. This is a noise level comparable to the sound of rustling leaves.
In the tropics where there is no winter, heat pumps work at high efficiency 24 hours, 7 days a week. A local test lab has certified AOS heat pumps 4 times more efficient than an electric heater.
Electric and gas heaters consume 3000 watts of power or equivalent.
In comparison, heat pump water heaters use only 460 watts.
Using several individual heaters is a layout of the past.
New developments usually use a single water heater. You will save much more on the initial total cost this way.
Install a weatherproof heat pump outdoors and free up precious internal living space.
Use the integrated heat pump as a central heater. By moving the heater out of the bathroom, you can raise ceilings for a more spacious bathroom concept.
Each water heater draws around 3000 watts. Having a few heaters running in the house draws a higher power load. With a single central heater, you can power up the entire house with only 460 watts.
Your bathroom is your personal space. The last thing you need there are messy ceiling and plumbing works.
Central units are installed in a public space – at the roof or aircon ledge. Installers only need to access these areas.
Solar heaters have high-power backup heating elements. There are often activated when conditions are unfavourable. These conditions include rainy days, cloudy days and evenings. When heating elements activate, solar heaters are low efficiency.
Heat pumps are a more efficient system because they have a much larger working range. They work on high efficiency, as long as the temperature does not drop below 7ºC.
Yes, you can leave the switch on all the time. Heat pumps are automatic systems and will cut off when the temperature is right.
There will not be any wastage of electricity.
Electric heaters create heat using 3000-watt heating elements.
Heat pumps do not create heat. They transfer heat from the ambient air with the use of a small compressor that runs on only 210 watts.
Heat pumps are renewable energy heaters. Their tanks are larger than a usual because they generate heat slower.
A large tank serves as a reservoir for stored energy.
