A traditional water heater (one with a storage tank) has an average lifespan of about 10 years – so if your water heater is entering or into its second decade, you will probably need to replace it sooner than later.
The question is should you replace it another storage-type water heater model, or something smarter?
Tankless propane water heaters are all the rage these days, and they are a great option that can save you 30 percent or more on your water heating bills. But there could be an even more interesting (and effective) way to go if you also have an older boiler that’s in need of an upgrade: an Energy Kinetics System 2000.
As you may know, a boiler’s job is to heat water that gets pushed through pipes and into your household radiators and baseboards (some boilers take things a step further by heating the water to even higher temperatures, converting it to steam). Either way, this process generates a lot of heat to keep your home comfortable in the cool to frigid fall, winter, and spring months.
What the Energy Kinetics engineers and designers asked – smartly – was, “if the boiler is making all that heat anyway, why not use it to warm the household water, too? “
And that’s just what the System 2000 does.
By combining home heating and water heating duties into one powerful, super-efficient, whisper-quiet package, the System 2000 essentially heats your water for free whenever your boiler is working. When you consider that your water bill can account for nearly 20 percent of your monthly energy bill, that’s a pretty big deal.
But the energy savings doesn’t stop there: the unique design approach of the System 2000 reduces chimney, jacket, idle, and draft regulator loss to gain even more efficiency. With such a powerful heating element, it will also heat your water faster than a conventional boiler will – and it runs quieter than just about any system we install.
Our manufacturer-certified technicians install and service these great units every year, so they’ll know exactly what to do to get the most out of a System 2000 system in your home. They’ll install the unit quickly and correctly, with no repeat visits.
