Due to the internal heat load, these cabinets require cooling even when outside temperatures are 60°F (15°C) and below. The units have the necessary controls and components for operation within these temperatures.
The system increases protection by adapting to changes in tank conditions. It also uses patented adaptive technology that adjusts to water types, providing the precise amount of current needed to deliver continuous protection for the water heater tank.
In this issue of The NEWS, we examine how HVAC contractors can enter the smart home market along with strategies for success. We also discuss the recent Midterm elections and what they mean for the HVAC industry.
