A. O. Smith has launched its Commercial Heat Pump Water Heater (CHP-120) for light commercial applications such as restaurants, schools, retail buildings or any facility which would traditionally use a standard commercial electric water heater. Built with contractors and facility managers in mind, the integrated design and front mounted components allow for easy installation and maintenance.
The CHP-120 has 50 percent more storage capacity than any other commercial integrated heat pump water heater on the market. Thanks to an industry-leading 4.2 Coefficient of Performance (COP), the high-efficiency heat pump can save up to $3,500 in annual energy costs as compared to a standard electric commercial water heater. The CHP-120 is also ENERGY STAR qualified, making it eligible for many local utility rebates.
Multiple CHP-120 units can be manifold together to serve larger applications for redundancy to provide reliable hot water delivery even if units are isolated for maintenance. The source of strength and durability in the new model are the high output compressor, large coils and dual fans, allowing it to serve as an enhanced dehumidifier. Designed for maximum flexibility, these units fit in compact footprints.
