ENERGY SAVINGS FULLY PROGRAMMABLE LCD DIGITAL CONTROL
Here's your opportunity to offer your customers enhanced hot water delivery plus greatly increased energy efficiency! The Performance Package offers full 7-day, 4 period/day (wake, leave, return, sleep) programmable control of the water heater giving homeowners the ability to adjust the set point temperature of the water stored in the tank based on their usage patterns. Water is maintained at the optimum temperature when it will most likely be needed. There's also a setback feature, that with one push of a button, lowers the set point temperature to save energy while the homeowner is out of town or when hot water is not required for an extended amount of time. The control also allows water to be stored at its highest set point temperature during peak demand hours. This greatly reduces the homeowner's wait time for hot water at the fixtures in the morning. The control, with its LCD user interface, is similar to a home heating and cooling thermostat and features a hot water capacity indicator, a read out of set point water temperature, diagnostic display codes for installation and troubleshooting, and a battery back-up (up to 30 days). The control can save the homeowner up to 36% on energy usage depending on the geographic region, hot water usage and number of people in the household. This easily installed control can be attached directly to the water heater with the mounting bracket provided or it can be mounted remotely. Simply put, the control allows your customers to program the water heater to operate only during those times hot water is required thereby saving energy and money.
ENHANCED HOT WATER DELIVERY INTEGRATED MIXING DEVICE**
The second major component of the Performance Package is the uniquely engineered integrated mixing device (IMD). The IMD allows water in the tank to be stored at a higher temperature while still providing a comfortable outlet temperature. By blending cold water into the hot water outlet, usable hot water can be increased by as much as 50% or more. Multiple time-saving features are incorporated into the IMD. The first is a 1/4" NPT cold water port that can be used in place of a saddle valve when connecting an ice maker. There is also an alternate 1/2" NPT hot water outlet that can be used for a dishwasher, washing machine or other high temperature application. The IMD features a 1/2" NPT recirculation port as well. This eliminates any confusion regarding where to make the connection when installing a recirculation line. Simple to operate, the IMD is factory set at approximately 120'F and features a clearly marked, push-to-turn hand wheel that helps prevent accidental temperature change. Engineered for convenience, the IMD reduces mixing valve installation time from the normal one hour to as little as 15 minutes. An adhesive Thermo-Strip is also included to approximate the mixed hot water outlet temperature. The Thermo-Strip also helps reduce the time required to set the outlet temperature by eliminating the need to run water at a faucet in order to check the temperature.
**The Integrated Mixing Device is ASSE and UPC (IAPMO) certified and complies with applicable CSA/NSF standards.
