All Electric Solutions

In all electric homes there are several solutions.  For typical requirements the Supercharger can be used to extend an existing tank water heater to provide endless hot water.  The Supercharger remains in standby until the hot water in the tank begins to deplete and mix with cold incoming water reducing the temperature.  As the tank attempts to recover, the Supercharger activates, adding just enough power to maintain hot water for 1-2 continuous draws, endlessly.  Alternatively, a whole house tankless can be installed in the place of the tank, providing endless hot water in a fraction of the space.  In new construction, the Whole House unit can be centrally located to save energy AND water by reducing the wait for hot water.  For homes with larger or specialty hot water needs like large roman tub fillers or multi-head showers, solutions like the Tank Extender or Multi-Unit approach are appropriate.  The units can be plumbed together in parallel, or distributed throughout the home to reduce the wait for hot water.

In many areas, city delivered natural gas is still the lowest cost fuel, although volatility in gas prices has made electric power more desirable in many areas, especially where bottled gas is delivered, electricity can be 2-3 times less per BTU.  For typical requirements the Supercharger can be used to extend an existing tank water heater to provide endless hot water.  The Supercharger remains in standby until the hot water in the tank begins to deplete and mix with cold incoming water reducing the temperature.  As the tank attempts to recover, the Supercharger activates, adding just enough power to maintain hot water for up to 2 continuous draws, endlessly.  For whole house gas tankless, a Supercharger can be added to eliminate the cold-water sandwich and provide hot water for low flow draws.  In new construction, multiple Supercharger units can be strategically located to save energy AND water by reducing the wait for hot water.  For homes with larger or specialty hot water needs like large roman tub fillers or multi-head showers, solutions like the Tank Extender or Multi-Unit approach are appropriate.  The units can be plumbed adjacent in parallel or distributed throughout the home to reduce the wait for hot water.

Hybrid solutions with Solar, Heat Pump and Geothermal are the most energy efficient.  By removing the resistance elements from the tank and using tankless electric models to heat only the incremental water used, maximum energy can be captured from the environment and the absolute minimum electricity will be used.  In new construction, multiple Supercharger units can be strategically located to save energy AND water by reducing the wait for hot water.  The small increase in energy for this initial pre-heat will be more than offset by the savings in water and increased convenience.
