NEXT Hybrid® is the new milestone in water heating — built for the way people ACTUALLY live and use hot water. The product combines the best features of tankless and conventional technologies to create a new category of water heating.
Through an inspired blend of innovation, efficiency and years of industry expertise, A. O. Smith has created a family of state-of-the-art products that provide a long-lasting supply of hot water during those times when everyone in your home needs it most. Vertex™ power vent and power direct vent gas water heaters take high-demand homes to the pinnacle of hot water availability.
Exclusive and patented pressurized combustion chamber with an advanced air intake blower delivers superior efficiency. Much like a turbo charger, the blower distributes an optimum air-to-gas mixture pushing exhaust gases through the highly restricted flue baffle. The end result is the most efficient atmospheric gas product on the market with a .70 Energy Factor (EF).
If you need maximum energy savings and reliability, choose our top of the line Conservationist®. Its DynaClean™ II system is your safeguard against lime and sediment buildup. And its Blue Diamond® glass coating delivers more than twice the corrosion resistance of industry standard glass lining.
The ProMax® family offers a wide range of water heating solutions—from models that help you qualify for gas utility rebates to high recovery models ideal for large families with high demand for hot water.
Our ProMax® specialty vent gas water heaters can be installed almost anywhere in your home because they can vent up to 40 feet. Our direct vent models feature two-pipe combustion systems that draw clean air from outside the home, eliminating any worries about indoor ventilation.
