Improving efficiency in hot water heaters can save a
tremendous amount of energy, and resulting energy costs. Efficiency in
hot water heaters can be improved by controlling the firing patterns of
the hot water heater, by eliminating limescale buildup within the
system, and by better insulating the hot water heater.
ECMI helps our clients improve water heating
efficiency two ways.
By implementing Savastat HW on compatible hot water
heaters to gain better operating efficiencies.
By Implementing Hydropath Technology to eliminate limescale
form the system, which keeps the water heaters operating at peak
heat exchange efficiency.
By implementing the Stack Draft Regulator System to
eliminate stack draft
Hot water heater operating efficiency is a much
different topic than it's heat-exchange efficiency.
Hot water heaters are typically rated on their heat exchange capability,
which has little to do with how it reacts to various factors of hot
water demand on the system. Savastat HW implements a method to
program expected demand periods into the controller, as well as a method
to intelligently bring the system up to full temperature when a demand
is detected during the off-demand periods. This enables the hot
water heater to always maintain a minimum safe operating temperature
while also allowing for maximum energy savings when possible during
- Is compatible with most gas and electric water heaters
- Eliminates short cycling
- Will extend the equipment's lifecycle
- Is easily installed with little down-time
- Will provide a
guaranteed 15% energy savings or 24 month or less ROI
- Will remove limescale from inside the water heater and piping
- Continues to keep limescale from forming within the system.
- Keeps the hot water heater operating at peek efficiency.
- Eliminates costs for chemicals and scheduled cleaning of the
Brings appliance efficiency back near
to the manufacturer's specifications
Eliminates heat losses due to negative
drafting sucking the heat right out of the system
Provides a better flame pattern across
the heat exchanger and eliminates "rope flame"
Cleaner burns means less soot and lower
O2 readings in the stack
More efficient burns also means less
fuel going up the stack
Keeps more heat in the system thus
reducing burn cycles and burn frequency
Works with most any appliance with a
flame and a stack!
VERY Significant savings when
multiple appliances feed into a common stack!
