Write a review of Polaris
American Water Heaters (AWH) which owns the Polaris brand, is a manufacturer of gas, electric and oil-fired water heaters for the residential, wholesale and commercial sectors. These "combi" water heaters can be used for both hot water, and space heating applications, such as generating hot water for radiators or for radiant under-floor heating. AWHC is owned by A.O. Smith. A.O. Smith saw 2012 net sales of approximately $1.7 billion.
American Water Heaters was acquired by GSW in April 2002. GSW sells electric, gas, propane and oil-fired products to customers in the wholesale, retail and energy services channels across Canada under the GSW and John Wood brand names. A.O. Smith, one of the world's leading manufacturers and marketers of residential and commercial water heating equipment, bought GSW in April 2006. A.O. Smith puts an emphasis on research and development of new products, having spent $42.7 million in 2011 alone on research efforts.
Polaris manufactures a line of high-efficiency water heaters that offer up to 96 percent efficiency ratings. The manufacturer says this residential system shines in applications where multiple tasks requiring hot water are performed at once. The residential system also can be used as part of a radiant floor hydronic heating system, in which hot water circulates beneath the floor in tubes that radiate that warmth throughout the house. It also is recommended by the manufacturer for forced air hydronic heat applications, in which the water heater works in combination with an air handler to warm air through the ducts. The Polaris uses a stainless steel construction for durability.
