A New Water Heater Cuts Energy Use by Nearly Half

A New Water Heater Cuts Energy Use by Nearly Half

According to the description of the heater by ISI Technology it will be 99 % efficient. The heater uses the firm’s patented “direct resistance technology” which takes advantage of the water’s natural resistance to directly heat the water molecules, instead of heating the water with conventional resistance heating elements. The graphite electrodes used in the MODEL 1 heater never get hotter than the surrounding water, which saves energy and allows for exceptional control over the water temperature. The water heater measures water temperature 60 times per second and therefore offers over 500 temperature choices.
