Direct vent water heater is your best option with gas - may be best to stay with electric - today's electrics are more efficient.

SOURCE: water wizard 10P pilot light keeps going out

If the thermocoupler is defective the gas to everything is shut off. The coupler is the bulb that sits ib the pilot flame If it doesn't heat up it will sense no pilot and shut the gas off. They don't cost much and are easy to change. Good Luck, Ned

SOURCE: My Superflue water heater is flashing Eco failure.

Hi,
The ECO is short for emergency cut off.
The ECO is either tripped or it went bad. You may be able to reset it or you will have to contact a rep the sells your heater to get a new part. Some are resetable and some are not... not sure which you may have. The reset ones will have a little red button to push in the center.
The next rpoblem is to figure why the ECO went or tripprd in the first place. There is probably a reason or a cause. When you refire it make surte you donot have flame roll out and proper venting. Also make sure the the thermostat works and is not letting it get too hot.

I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

SOURCE: no power at all to my superflue water heater

Hi, first check and try and reset the breaker feeding the water heater. That should be a two pole breaker. The next thing to check is the red safety button on the top thermostat control. It is under the top access panel of the heater, along with a good amount of insulation. Push the red button to reset the safety switch. If these do not remedy your situation, then you will need someone on site to check the water heater in more detail.

Bosch 125fx heater barely heats water


1) Recommend replacing tankless with ordinary tank-type gas water heater.

http://hometips.me/Mar/Which-is-best-gas-water-heater.pdf

2) Tankless cannot be exposed to more than 11 grains hardness in water or unit will fail within 2-5 years. Water softener is required.
http://hometips.me/Tls/Battelle_Water-softening-research.pdf

3) Descaling tankless water heater each year will not restore functionality, or restore efficiency of tankless, nor restore full efficiency to tank-type gas water heater.

4) Bradford White side-by-side testing research comparing their tankless with their tank-type shows that tankless will save $1-8 per month on energy bill vrs ordianry tank-type ....but conclude that tankless 'fall far short of payback' due to maintenance, repair, installation and replacement costs.
Study compared full cost, and not just monthly energy bill, since All costs are energy.

Water heater with electonic igniter will not work in power outage


What type of heater is this? I need to know the model name and make and then we can go threw the process of how to do it. Most gas heaters do not have power to them and I only know of a few tankless heaters that do.

How to Replace Water Heater


Before you rush out to buy a new one, you'll want to find out which type of water heater is most efficient. Your decision will be heavily predicated upon whether your home is set up to run an electric or a gas water heater. One general piece of advice is valid regardless: Don't assume you need to buy the same size water heater as you currently own. It is possible that you can install a smaller water heater if, in recent years, you have replaced other household appliances, such as dishwashers and washing machines. Newer products often include power and water saving features, and thus, you might be able to buy a smaller water heater that will cost less money and use less energy. Whether your requirements dictate gas or electric, learning which models are most economical is fairly straightforward. Federal regulations require that water heaters display Energy Guide labels. These labels include the Energy Factor (EF) that measures the overall efficiency of a model; the higher the number, the more efficient it is. The labels also will have a First Hour Rating (FHR) that indicates how many gallons of water that model will produce during a peak usage hour. Additionally, you can get energy savings information and rankings on some of the most popular brands of water heaters through consumer organizations and reports. A word about on-demand water heaters: On-demand water heaters, also called tankless water heaters, or spontaneous water heaters, can be fueled by either gas or electricity. This design is much more efficient than standard models. An on-demand water heater is smaller and does not keep a reservoir of heated water on hand for anticipated use. Instead, as soon as you turn on the faucet, the fuel source fires up and the hot water is delivered. This type of water heater requires some refitting during installation in order to provide powered venting and possibly a larger gas line, so it is best to hire a professional to do the job. On-demand water heaters are especially practical for small apartments or single-person households. Larger households will require multiple units. Once you have installed your new, energy efficient water heater there are even more ways to increase its efficiency. Remember to purchase insulation blankets, lower your thermostat, add an overnight shutoff timer, install heat traps, insulate your pipes, and be diligent about regular maintenance. If you take these steps, you can rest assured that you will have the most efficient type of water heater available.
