Heatworks, the company that is fundamentally redefining and reshaping the way we heat and use water, is honored to announce that its MODEL 3 Smart Water Heater has been selected as one of TIME Magazine's 2018 Best Inventions. This exclusive and esteemed annual list recognizes 50 groundbreaking inventions that are making the world “better, smarter and even a little more fun”. The MODEL 3 Smart Water Heater was recognized in the Sustainability & Social Good category, which honors Inventions that make the world a better place by solving social and environmental problems, such as boosting energy efficiency, saving water, reducing food waste and helping underprivileged communities.
Heatworks’ proprietary Ohmic Array Technology is at the foundation of the award-winning MODEL 3 Smart Water Heater, which provides purer, endless hot water, precise temperature control and zero required maintenance. The accompanying, groundbreaking mobile app also enables the user to monitor the amount of water used each day, change the temperature of their shower or limit the length of showers taken by members of the household.
“MODEL 3 was born out of a desire to holistically redesign the way water has been heated for the first time in more than a century,” said Heatworks Founder and CEO, Jerry Callahan. “What resulted was a product and technology that has the capacity to impact people’s lives in ways far beyond water heating, giving them access to efficient, clean and precise water anywhere. To be recognized by the historic TIME Magazine for this accomplishment is an achievement in its own, and I couldn’t be prouder of our Heatworks team.”
Powered by Heatworks’ patented Ohmic Array Technology, the MODEL 3 does not use traditional metal heating elements that can rust and scale over time. Instead, Heatworks uses water as the heating element. Through graphite electrodes and advanced electronic controls, the naturally occurring minerals in water are excited, directly and efficiently heating the water. And, since water is used as the heating element, the hot water is purer than water from any other water heaters available in the industry today.
The unique water heating process coupled with the MODEL 3’s smart capabilities, creates a consistent and precise experience for any user. Since the MODEL 3 is 99% energy efficient, users will get more hot water and reduce the overall cost of heating their family’s water by about 40%. For the average American family, that’s $240 back each year. It also comes with an industry-leading 6-year full unit exchange warranty.
