Charles Smith started a company in 1874 in Wisconsin intending to create a company dedicated to doing things with integrity and honesty and providing his customers with a better way of doing things. As time went on, C. Smith had three sons join on with the company. Well the third of those sons, Arthur Oliver Smith started innovating the product line right away. He started out supplying metal parts for baby carriages and bicycles, but grew into a business that included creating parts for Cadillac, Oldsmobile, and even Ford. Eventually he made his way into the water heater tank industry and the company has been an architect in water heater operations ever since. The company has expanded to be international, opening up opportunities in Canada, Europe, and China. But even though the A.O. Smith Company has come along pretty considerably and undergone more than a few revolutions in its product line, the company has followed every move with integrity, honesty, and innovation as their credo.
Roswell, NM is known for its UFOS. But did you know A.O. Smith has innovated its product and water testing there? In the mid 1980s A.O. Smith started doing extensive reliability testing in Roswell because of the high calcium and magnesium carbonate content in the water. This type of water presented A.O. Smith with the fiercest challenges. But because of their desire to produce the best of the best, going to this testing length was seen by them as absolutely necessary.
The Role of the Water Heater
We all know what a water heater is supposed to do. This is obvious even by just the label. But homeowners around America sometimes settle for how their water heater is operating at the present moment instead of realizing how much better it should be performing were it up to industry standards.
Did you know water heaters need to be drained and cleaned out about once a year? Without this there is build-up that sits in the bottom of your water heater tank that reduces the lifespan. Or did you know that there are options for getting your water heater needs taken care of without requiring a brand new installation? Do you know what a hybrid water heater is, or a water heater recirculation pump?
