ASHLAND CITY, Tenn. — A. O. Smith announced the launch of its newly upgraded A. O. Smith Mobile App, featuring demand response and time-of-use capabilities. Once connected to the A. O. Smith iCOMM Remote Monitoring platform, the app allows service professionals and homeowners to remotely monitor and control their water heater.

“Energy and environmental regulations, at the state and local levels, are influencing the adoption of energy-efficient appliances and building resources,” said Arthur Smith, specialty residential product manager at A. O. Smith. “The updated app and new features provide additional value for industry professionals and customers to choose an eco-friendly heat pump water heater over a standard tank-type unit.”

“We’re also seeing more builders installing smart appliances to differentiate their properties and meet customer expectations for new homes,” said Ralph Perez, A. O. Smith senior sustaining business manager. “The app allows builders to offer smart home convenience with the utility bill savings of a heat pump water heater.”
