i saw there was a hydrosonic water heater but they stopped making it for boilers but now only make it for other things. i saw somewhere they had to stop because it competed with natural gas and ground source heating. there are ion boilers that they make and sell in europe but not in the usa. also are there any magnetic induction boilers made and sold in the usa? there could be a overunity boiler made and sold it the usa but not easy to find to to to many online ads in searches. here is the link to the ion boiler.

Over unity is only possible when the energy comes from somewhere else. Most heat pump systems could be described as being "over unity" - they move heat from outside the house to inside. The devices described on that website don't look like they would be over unity, although they might perhaps be more efficient than a standard heater element.

Also, I'm sceptical about the claim that a heating device was taken off the market "because it competed with gas". The market is pretty good at picking up innovations that improve on old technology, devices that don't tend to become popular often don't live up to their hype.

ANYTHING described as OVER UNITY is 100% BULL FUKING SHIT !!! No exceptions, in every case there is. A heat pump, air conditioner is NOT over unity, its called a HEAT PUMP and it operates on the CARNOT cycle. Look it up on wikipedia and read about it.
