Condensing High Efficiency Water Heaters

For many years now, A.O. Smith has understood the enormous added value of condensing gas water heaters. For this reason, A.O. Smith began the development of energy-efficient condensing hot water heaters at an early stage. The first gas-fired high-efficiency water heater, the BFC Cyclone, was launched back in 1998. The introduction of Innovo and Instano has allowed A.O. Smith to offer an even more complete condensing range in a way that provides the ideal solution to every situation.

While the existing condensing BFC Cyclone, Twister, SGE and SGS are suitable for mid-range to large-scale use, the new Innovo and Instano are perfect for small to medium-sized applications. In addition, these energy-saving products all come with an A-label.


The Innovo range consists of 9 condensing sealed gas water heaters with a capacity ranging from 11.3 to 35.0 kW and a volume of 160 to 380 litres. A load profile between XL and XXL can be attained depending on the appliance, while the ErP efficiency can be increased from 90 to 94%. The entire range has a maximum temperature setting of 85°C, and with a NOx output of under 29 mg/kWh, it complies perfectly with the strictest European guidelines.


The Instano range consists of three instantaneous water heaters with a capacity of 27.0 kW to 60.9 kW. This appliance can meet a load profile of XL to XXL and has an ErP efficiency of 88% to 92%. The compact dimensions and low weight make it the perfect hot water solution for application in larger households.

In anticipation of stricter ErP guidelines, A.O. Smith has a complete range of condensing high-efficiency water heaters in order to serve the market in the best possible way.
