This makes it an ideal choice for homeowners who want to replace their older, inefficient water heater without the hassle. This ENERGY STAR® qualified water heater also comes with another irresistible benefit significant savings on utility bills.
High Efficiency, Big Savings
Thanks to its low operating costs, the Effex can translate into significant savings for the homeowner over the course of its lifespan. In fact, with its .70 EF (compared to an average .53 EF of a ten-year-old gas product), the Effex can generate savings of up to 25% of annual operating cost.
How Does The Effex Work?
The high efficiency performance of the Effex model is possible thanks to its patented air intake system. Air is pushed into the combustion chamber, creating a pressurized environment. Due to this “turbo charge” effect, tighter baffling is incorporated in the flue design to slow down the hot gas as it travels through the water heater. This results in more heat transferred to the water and less energy wasted.
Advanced electronic control features consist of electronic ignition, thermister sensing and microprocessor intelligence, resulting in tighter differentials, improved temperature control and more consistent hot water delivery.
Weary of hassles involved in a high efficiency water heater installation? With the Effex, there’s not much to worry about. For starters, it uses standard water and gas connections. It easily connects to existing B-vent on replacements, and it can be common vented. No wonder it is known as effortless.
