Water heater major AO Smith has launched HeatBot that comes with a smart timer (Auto-On and Auto-Off), energy meter, and a wireless remote. The new water heater is also equipped with blue diamond glass lining to offer two times the higher corrosion resistance and an advanced PUF technology for BEE 5 Star rated energy efficiency. It is available in 15 and 25 litres with a mechanical and digital control panel.
“We are excited about this launch and we believe this will create a paradigm shift in the way consumers use a water heater. As a pioneer in innovation and a market leader in water heaters, we would like to lead the way in the consumer experience. HeatBot™ is designed keeping consumers in mind, giving them a user experience like never before. It combines the best in class technology with premium aesthetics. With this launch, the bar is certainly raised in the water heater category,” Parag Kulkarni, managing director, AO Smith India says.
The domestic water heater market is estimated at approximately Rs 1800 crores and growing at about 9%, says Kulkarni, adding that the company grew by 34% in the last financial year. “We are sure that consumers will show the same patronage to HeatBot as they now have a strong reason to upgrade and experience the best of technology and design. We are committed to raising the bar further in both water heaters and water purifiers category” he adds.
