Storage-Tank Water Heaters Clovis NM

Conventional storage-tank water heaters keep water hot continually, which is certainly not the most efficient method in Clovis. In fact, about 20 percent of the operating costs associated with these systems can be attributed to standby loss, where the tank is just sitting there waiting to be used.

Hot Water Conservation

Provided By:

Conventional storage-tank water heaters keep water hot continually, which is certainly not the most efficient method. In fact, about 20 percent of the operating costs associated with these systems can be attributed to standby loss, where the tank is just sitting there waiting to be used. It is also estimated that the average family of four wastes between 12,000 and 14,000 gallons of water annually while waiting just those few seconds for the water from the faucet to heat up. For the last 30 years in this country (longer in Europe and Asia), tankless water heaters have been a viable option for energy efficiency and water conservation, but their convenience and performance was under question. Typical tankless hot-water heaters have traditionally been unable to keep up with a surge in water flow.

If only one faucet in the home was turned on, the units worked fine. If another faucet was turned on at the same time, however, the result was a blast of cold water while the heater adjusted - which could take up to several minutes or might not happen at all. In this country, saving a few energy dollars wasn't worth sacrificing performance and convenience. Now, not only has that energy- and resource-wasting attitude begun to change, but so has tankless hot-water heating technology. Envirotech Systems Worldwide Inc. of Scottsdale, Ariz., has unveiled a line of ESI 2000 tankless hot-water heaters, and they promise unlimited hot water on demand, to any faucet in the home, no matter how many are turned on at any time. "Most households in the United States have two or more bathrooms, as well as washing machines, dishwashers and kitchen sinks," says Drew Hruska, co-founder and president of Envirotech. "We are accustomed to hot water on demand and are reluctant to put up with less - even to conserve energy." The ESI 2000 water heaters are equipped with technologically advanced sensors that "read" the water's flow six to eight times per second and adjust the power flow temperature as necessary.

This results in continual, immediate availability of a precisely set water temperature, no matter how many faucets are turned on. Because tankless systems heat water only on demand (as the water flows through the pipe in the unit), it uses only the energy necessary to supply the desired amount of hot water.

The company says that using these water heaters can save users as much as 60 percent in water heating costs over conventional storage-tank heaters. They also promise that hot water will always be ready and available for the next person who wants to use the faucet. Typical hot-water tanks have a life expectancy of eight to 10 years, and then they end up in the local landfill. Envirotech says the ESI 2000s have lifespans of 20 to 30 years, and at the size of a typical briefcase, it not only makes for quick and convenient installation, but more environmentally friendly disposal. Since no water is stored in the unit, there is no danger of rupture, but the company backs that claim with a lifetime warranty. Other uses for these units include radiant floor heating and ground-source heat pumps (also known as GHPs or geothermal heat pumps). At $600 to $800 per unit, they are more expensive than typical hot-water tanks, but if they perform in any way like the manufacturer claims, they should pay for themselves very quickly. Units are available for immediate shipment through local authorized dealers and directly from the company.
