Heatworks launches MODEL 1X to relieve property manager pain from new Department of Energy standards

MODEL 1X enables property managers to avoid replacement tank build out costs and tenant complaints about hot water volume

CHARLESTON, South Carolina – November 17, 2015 – Heatworks, the creator of a revolutionary water heating technology, announced today the launch of the MODEL 1X, the perfect solution for property managers looking to solve the space problem created by new Department of Energy regulations for water heaters. The MODEL 1X is the perfect complement to any tank-type water heating system in the world.  

“New DOE regulations require water heaters that are approximately 30 percent larger in diameter, so replacement tanks won’t always fit in their old location,” said Heatworks CEO Jerry Callahan. “Building owners can avoid the renovation costs required to accommodate new, larger tanks by installing the MODEL 1X with a smaller, less expensive tank that fits. Installing the MODEL 1X in series with any upstream tank will provide over 50% more hot water. This configuration will eliminate tenant complaints that would otherwise result from a smaller tank or the disruptions of a build out.” 

The MODEL 1X and the tank heater cooperate to share the same electrical circuit with no added load.  When the MODEL 1X senses demand for hot water, it shuts off the heating elements in the tank. The warm water from the tank then flows through the MODEL 1X where it is instantly heated to the perfect temperature with high efficiency Heatworks technology. The result is at least 50% more hot water with no additional wiring. 

Heatworks uses a patented technology that converts electrical energy into heat using graphite electrodes and the natural impurities found in water. With no heating elements, the MODEL 1X is able to boost water temperature without the rusting and scaling issues that lead to failure in all other water heating systems on the market. Because the MODEL 1X technology is so advanced, Heatworks is able to offer an industry-first 12 year full unit exchange guarantee that eliminates property managers’ concerns about reliability and replacement costs.
