“Heat pump water heaters are by far the most efficient way to heat water, resulting in significantly lower energy bills, fewer carbon emissions, upfront and long-term savings, and plenty of hot water," said Bob Heideman, senior vice president and chief technology officer at A. O. Smith.
ASHLAND CITY, Tenn. (PRWEB) May 12, 2021
A. O. Smith, the world’s largest manufacturer of commercial and residential water heaters, has been recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) with the 2021 ENERGY STAR® Sustained Excellence Award. A family-founded business with 146 years of American manufacturing expertise, A. O. Smith offers more than 1,000 ENERGY STAR certified products across its brand portfolio. This year marks the third consecutive year that A. O. Smith has been named an ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year for delivering significant energy and utility savings through its high efficiency water heaters.
To celebrate ENERGY STAR’s highest honor this National Home Improvement Month, A. O. Smith is offering homeowners the chance to go green and save green with its Sustainable Home Giveaway, open now through May 30th. Worth over $4,000, A. O. Smith is giving away a full suite of water heating and filtration solutions, including an A. O. Smith ENERGY STAR certified 50-gallon Heat Pump Water Heater, an A. O Smith Whole House Filtration System and an A. O. Smith Reverse Osmosis (RO) Drinking Water Filter, including professional installation.
According to the EPA, one of the simplest ways to save both water and energy is to install water-efficient products. Water heaters are the second highest source of energy usage in the home; more than a refrigerator, dishwasher, laundry washer and dryer combined. A. O. Smith’s 50-Gallon Heat Pump Water Heater is three times as efficient as standard electric water heaters, reducing energy bills by up to 73%. This saves homeowners $306 per year on average, and more than $3,000 over 10 years.
“Sustainability and energy efficiency are at the heart of everything we do at A. O. Smith,” said Bob Heideman, senior vice president and chief technology officer at A. O. Smith. “Heat pump water heaters are by far the most efficient way to heat water, resulting in significantly lower energy bills, fewer carbon emissions, upfront and long-term savings, and plenty of hot water.”
In addition to saving energy, homeowners can drastically reduce their carbon footprint by filtering their tap water. The U.S. reportedly consumes 1,500 plastic water bottles every second, and 60 million of those bottles are thrown away, daily. Each long-lasting filter in A. O. Smith’s Reverse Osmosis System replaces over 3,700 plastic bottles every six months, adding up to 74,000 plastic bottles over 10 years. Stacked end to end, that would reach almost twice as tall as Mount Everest and 34 times taller than the Empire State Building. Additionally, A. O. Smith’s Whole House Filter filter 600,000 gallons for clean water from every tap throughout the home.
A. O. Smith’s 50-Gallon Heat Pump Water Heater, Whole House Filter and Reverse Osmosis System are available for purchase at Lowe’s in stores nationwide and online at Lowes.com.
