A. O. Smith Announces Industry-First X3® Scale Prevention Technology for Tankless Water Heaters

A. O. Smith, an expert in water heating and treatment, announces the addition of X3® Scale Prevention Technology to its full line of residential condensing gas tankless water heaters. Designed with both consumers and contractors in mind, X3 Technology prevents scale buildup in a tankless unit, eliminating the need for routine descaling maintenance, tripling the expected lifetime of a unit, and enabling it to run at like-new performance and efficiency.

“We continuously hear from technicians and homeowners that scale buildup is the No. 1 issue with tankless water heaters. This buildup can shorten a unit’s lifespan, increase unnecessary repairs and maintenance costs, and decrease efficiency,” said Robert Aldrich, Residential Segment Development Leader at A. O. Smith. “After years of in-depth research and testing, we’re proud to be the first water technology company in the industry to offer its tankless water heaters with scale prevention technology.”

X3 Technology means you never have to descale a tankless water heater again—alleviating maintenance time for contractors and reducing ownership costs for homeowners. Units featuring X3 Technology work especially well in homes with hard water where damaging scale and mineral deposits are more common. The units use up to 199,000 Btuh of natural gas to deliver a continuous supply of hot water to residential applications.

Available on A. O. Smith’s suite of condensing gas tankless products (240, 340, and 540 indoor and outdoor, natural gas, and propane models), units with X3 Technology offer customers an array of sizes to fit a variety of application needs. These products are also backed by the industry’s only limited warranty with no exclusions for scale-related failures.

Contractors interested in learning more can visit A. O. Smith University, university.hotwater.com. The online training portal currently offers tankless courses to ensure that professionals are educated on the installation and maintenance of A. O. Smith tankless units.

To celebrate the launch of this industry-first technology, A. O. Smith presents the “3X the Summer Heat with X3 Technology” promotion. Running May 1 through Aug. 31, 2022, Contractor Rewards members who purchase A. O. Smith tankless units featuring X3 Scale Prevention Technology will receive three times the Contractor Rewards points and will be entered into a sweepstakes to win a beach vacation of their choice in Miami or Cancun or a Bahamas cruise.
