efficiency gas water heater from the Whirlpool® Brand is the most
efficient and advanced conventional vent product on the market. The
patented air intake system turbo charges the combustion process to
produce the highest efficiency possible for a standard atmospheric
product. This efficiency translates up to 25% savings on your water
How Does It Work?
The Whirlpool® Brand high efficiency gas water heater generates
the highest efficiency possible in a standard atmospheric model.
The high efficiency performance is produced by the patented air
intake system. Much like a turbo charger, air is pushed into the
combustion chamber creating a pressurized environment. As a result
of the pressurization, tighter baffling is incorporated into the
flue design to slow down the hot exhaust gas as it travels through
the flue. More heat is transferred to the water, and less energy is
wasted, compared to standard gas water heaters. The end result is
an extremely efficient .70 Energy Factor.
Features and Benefits
High Efficiency - .70 EF: Saves the homeowner
money compared to conventional gas products at .58 EF, or
ten-year-old installed product in the field as low as .53 EF. At
.70 EF, the Whirlpool® high efficiency gas water heater can
generate significant savings in the annual cost of operation up to
25% of the water heating cost.
Easy Installation: The Whirlpool® high
efficiency gas water heater installs with the same gas, water and
venting connections as a standard atmospheric model, making it
perfect for replacement applications. It is the best option for
customers looking for energy efficiency/ savings without the
installation challenges of other high efficiency models.
Qualified: At .70 EF, the high efficiency gas water heater
exceeds the second ENERGY STAR® phase requirement of .67 EF. Many
state and local agencies have significant rebates for high
efficiency ENERGY STAR® products.
Advanced Technology: Consumers are looking for
the latest/greatest in technology, and this is the most advanced
and efficient conventional vent water heater. With eye level
controls, LCD user interface that provides easy temperature
adjustment and diagnostics, and tighter temperature control, the
advanced controls truly make this the most advanced atmospheric
vent product on the market.
Electronic Ignition: No standing pilot avoids
nuisance issues associated with standard vent product, and is more
Powered Anode Rod: High-tech powered anode is
non-sacrificial, so they it does not deplete over time and they
provide exceptional performance in all water conditions.
Plugs into a standard 110/120 volt outlet (10-foot power cord
High Efficiency yet Easy to Install with Savings up to 25%.
Vs. Standard Gas
