Harvest Pod

Judge’s Remarks:

“The Harvest Pod enables great potential for energy savings and load flexibility.”


Harvest Thermal is redesigning home heating, cooling and hot water for the planet. Its market-leading smart thermal battery and patented Harvest Pod save an average of 30% on monthly heating bills, cut emissions by 90% compared to gas equipment, and optimize customer comfort. The Harvest Pod uses machine-learning software, sensors, and controls, to learn household energy needs, monitor the weather, and communicate with the grid.

A single, air-to-water heat pump charges the hot water battery at midday when there’s an abundance of low-cost, clean electricity and distributes stored heat and hot water into the home whenever needed. By combining thermal storage with an ultra-efficient heat pump and components, Harvest saves more energy than any other residential all-electric space heating and hot water system on the market.

In addition to leveraging time-of-use rates today, the cloud-connected Harvest Pod future-proofs homes with devices that give more control over homeowners’ energy bills of tomorrow. The smart Pod enables demand-response capabilities and software to flexibly respond to grid pricing and emission data.

Premium air filtration and a natural refrigerant make Harvest a top choice for health and the environment. Plus homeowners enjoy the superior comfort of quiet heat and stable temperatures. In more moderate climates, Harvest Thermal offers Night Cooling. It features a built-in outside air economizer that brings cool, filtered air from outside when it’s warmer inside or when indoor air quality is poor. Need air-conditioning? Harvest integrates with a separate heat pump that also provides supplemental heat in the coldest climates.

In 2023, Harvest Thermal was named to Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies list; awarded NREL Industry Growth Forum’s People’s Choice Award; and won a Silver Edison Award for Sustainable Design in the category of Consumer Solutions.
