Benefits of the Electroheat Hot Water System

The Electroheat HWS is a cost-effective heating solution that meets all your heating needs. It utilizes an ambient air source as its heating methodology to heat water through an element inside the storage tank. Using minimal energy, it generates a great amount of heat energy to meet your hot water needs.

It utilizes an evaporator coil, refrigerant, and a condenser coil. Heat exchange occurs between the coil and circulating cold water from a water tank. Hot air is blown over the evaporator coil, transferring heat energy to the refrigerant, as the cooled air will be rejected. The heat energy is transferred from the refrigerant to the condenser coil. This way, heat is pumped from one place to another.

This heating system offers many benefits for households. Let us look at the different purposes that the Electroheat HWS can serve.

1. Environmentally Friendly

One of the cons of everyday water heating methods is that they utilize a high amount of fossil fuels, leading to high carbon emissions. This has contributed to the significant erosion of the ozone layer.

The Electroheat Hot Water System is different from conventional heat generating systems. It does not produce heat from solar energy; instead, it generates heat from the traditional heating approach while resulting in minimal carbon emissions. This makes it highly safe for the environment while households' hot water heating needs are met.


2. Cost-Effective Heating

The typical hot water system requires a high amount of electricity and heating loads to heat water in storage tanks. This eventually leads to high energy bills. SolarMate has designed the Electroheat Hot Water System to help households avoid this challenge.

The heating load used by the Electroheat HWS involves only operating the compressor with low power amperage. In terms of power consumption, the SolarMate HWS saves up to 58% over natural gas, 83% over propane gas, and more than 500% over electric heaters.


3. Energy-Efficient Heating

Gas and electric heaters utilize high energy to pass heat to tank water heaters. This results in high utility bills. Also, typically, not enough heat is generated, as most of the heat is lost to the environment. This working mechanism is not part of SolarMate’s Electroheat Hot Water System.

The Electroheat HWS uses a small portion of the energy used by gas and electric heaters to generate the same amount of heat energy. This makes it a resourceful water heating tool, as it does not need to rely on an alternative source of energy such as the sun.


4. Hot Water on Demand

This storage water heater ensures that hot water is available for various applications. No matter what time of the day it is needed, hot water will always be found in the water heater storage as backup electrical heaters are available.

5. Savings

The Electroheat HWS utilizes available heat energy from the ambient air to heat water heater. It uses a small amount of electrical energy to move heat from one place to another. This saves households a substantial amount of money.


6. Easy to Maintaineasy to maintain logo

This hot water system is easy to repair and maintain because it has fewer working parts. There are not many components to make a fuss over. Fewer parts mean fewer components that run the risk of breaking. This makes the Electroheat HWS less susceptible to damage and easier to repair and maintain.

Additionally, SolarMate’s HWS lasts longer and has minimal carbon emissions.

Final Takeaway

Whether you are looking for a residential water heater, industrial water heater, or commercial water heater, SolarMate’s Electroheat HWS will meet your water heating needs. With it, you can avoid high utility costs and have hot water available at all times. Get a free quote from us here!
