The Versa-Hydro Combined Hydronic Appliance from HTP represents the latest innovations in hydronic heating technology. The Versa-Hydro is the first device available in the U.S. to integrate a high-efficiency water heater with a heating element, providing both domestic hot water and space heating with one compact, efficient device. The modulating condensing gas appliance operates at 93% combustion efficiency and 96% thermal efficiency, contributing not only to the environment’s well-being, but to the consumer’s as well. The all-in-one design of the Versa-Hydro results in considerable space and cost savings, setting a new standard for environmental responsibility, energy conservation, and consumer convenience.
High system efficiency even during low load conditions: The modulating burner operates at a 5 to 1 turndown ratio, while the space heating module operates at a 10 to 1 turndown ratio
Low energy costs: Resulting from ultra high 96% Thermal Efficiency and 93% Combustion Efficiency ratings
Improved component life and reliability: Modulation, along with thermal mass, eliminates the short cycling effect, which conserves energy and improves component reliability
Enhanced comfort and efficiency: Weather responsive outdoor reset controls match the supply temperature to the heating need, preventing overheating
Appropriate for both residential and commercial applications: Available in three gallon sizes (ranging from 55-119 gallons) and 2 BTU inputs (ranging from 130 -199 BTU’s)
Low standby losses: The tank loses only ½ degree Fahrenheit per hour when the burner is off
Virtually maintenance free operation: The robust material and sophisticated design of the heat exchanger minimize lime and scale buildup, eliminating the blockage risk that occurs with low-mass boilers
Incredible system flexibility: Built-in auxiliary taps provide connections to air handlers or supplemental storage tanks
Space savings: The Versa-Hydro fits the equivalent of a 135,000 BTU boiler, an indirect water heater, and a buffer tank into one small footprint
Simpler, less costly installation: The unique design eliminates the need for a primary-secondary loop, near boiler piping, boiler/indirect electrical connections, and isolation valves
Optimum serviceability: Removable front covers provide service technicians easy access to components
Quality construction: An extremely durable cupronickel and stainless steel heat exchanger boasts excellent heat transfer properties and resists corrosion
Convenient control interface : A numeric control panel and LED lights display operational statuses, while an integrated USB connection allows boiler history to be displayed on a computer
Eligible for tax credits and utility company rebates: Based on high efficiency ratings
