Heatworks Technologies is comprised of talented and innovative individuals that were brought together by one man’s frustration with getting hot water to his outdoor shower.
Jerry Callahan and team have come together not only to create the Heatworks MODEL 1, but also bring sustainability to the forefront of water heating. The MODEL 1 saves you and your family money without sacrificing comfort, reducing up to 40% of energy costs and 10% of water usage.
