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.
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.
- PRESSURIZED COMBUSTION SYSTEM: Exclusive and patented pressurized combustion chamber with an advanced air intake blower delivers superior efficiency. Much like a turbocharger, the blower distributes an optimum air-to-gas mixture pushing exhaust gases through the highly restricted flue baffle. The end result is the most efficient atmospheric gas product on the market with a .70 Energy Factor (EF).
- INSTALLATION FRIENDLY: Allows for easy replacement of standard atmospheric vent heaters. Easily connects to existing B-vent.
- FAN-ASSISTED, CATEGORY 1 APPLIANCE
- 24V ELECTRONIC CONTROLS: Tighter differential for more consistent hot water delivery.
- ELECTRONIC IGNITION: The durable hot surface ignitor eliminates pilot relight issues (no standing pilot).
- LCD USER INTERFACE: Easy-to-read, eye level display. Simple temperature settings and adjustments. Service diagnostics are in plain text.
- POWERED ANODE ROD: Powered anodes are non-sacrificial, so they do not deplete over time. Additionally, they provide exceptional performance in all water conditions.
