Smith water heaters use C3 Technology™.The key differentiating elements of the C3 Technology design beyond the competition are:
Only the Corderite Flame Arrestor is fireproof, will not retain or conduct heat, and will not warp!
The C3 Technology Flame Arrestor
Only C3 Technology water heaters feature a scientifically designed lint, dust and oil screen, which can be easily inspected and cleaned.
To prevent particles of lint, dust and oil from clogging the flame arrestor, C3 Technology water heaters are the only ones equipped with a removable LDO screen mounted in the combustion air inlet port at the bottom of the water heater. If LDO particles have accumulated, the screen can be easily removed and cleaned, using a soft cloth or warm soapy water.
The C3 Technology Air Intake Screen
C3 Technology<> gas water heaters feature a single, self-contained pilot burner assembly, which includes the thermocouple and the temperature sensor. If service or replacement is required, there’s only one part to deal with, with no guesswork as to which component is causing the problem. C3 Technology is the most contractor friendly FVIR design on the market. And, of course, a design that saves us time ultimately saves you money.
C3 Technology Gas Water Heaters are the only units that are Self-Resetting mean better performance for you!
There are a number of conditions that can deprive a gas water heater of adequate make up air for combustion. These include improper installation, air exhaust situations from attic or other exhaust fans in operation, and LDO accumulation. These can prevent adequate make up air from reaching the burner in an “FVIR” gas water heater.
When such conditions occur, the C3 Technology temperature sensor is self-resetting. In other words if the sensor detects poor combustion conditions, it shuts down the water heater. Then, once the water heater has cooled down, the sensor automatically re-sets itself. This allows the water heater to be easily restarted, after the cause of poor combustion is corrected.
So if you are looking for the best most reliable and energy saving water heater available… A.O. Smith water heaters are the smart choice!
