A.O. Smith Next Hybrid Water Heater

The NEXT Hybrid gas water heater features a patented heat transfer process that utilizes a secondary heat exchanger to capture the heated flue gas from the tankless unit and route it back through a buffer tank to extract additional heat. The combined effort of the two technologies creates a superior, more energy-efficient hybrid gas water heater.

  • Performs like a tankless model and can also handle high hot water demand periods
  • 90% thermal efficiency
  • Eliminates sudden interruptions in hot water delivery (“cold water sandwiches”)
  • Interactive controls with multiple lifestyle modes
  • Designed for the way you use hot water
