Question about American Standard AMERICAN STD 100 Prop Water Heater COM D-100-270-ASLP

1 Answer

We are a small school that has about 14 students taking a shower after PE. We have had a 100 gallon 270,000 BTU water heater. Do you have a price quote for that heater American Standard Commercial Model 100 270 AS as well as the model that is the 100-250 AS. What does this mean in the way of showering if you can tell me. I was told by american standard that the 270 is 255 gal per hour versus 242 gal per hour for the 250. Kathleen Lowman, Hamilton Public Schools, Hamilton, KS 66853 Do you have a phone number for possible ordering?

Is the Whirlpool Electric Water Heater Model # EE3J50RD045V energy star rated


You want to know if this heater has Energy Star label.
I don't know.
Call Whirlpool 1-877-817-6750

Energy Star is a label that means nothing to you.
Manufacturers use energy-star label to promote a product as a money-saver.
They can put an Energy Star label on a giant 10,000 square foot house, and you know that cannot be the truth that a large house saves energy vrs a smaller house.

Energy factor, (energy factor/ not energy star) on the other hand, is a comparison measure how efficient the water heater uses energy to heat a gallon of water, when water heater is absolutely new.
EE3J50RD045V has energy factor of .59, which is completely typical and ordinary for electric water heaters.

The EE3j 50 gallon is an ordinary electric water heater, with ordinary average .59 energy factor rating, so electricity to operate this water heater is same as any other typical 50 gallon electric water heater: it will cost $35-45 a month depending on incoming water temperature, hot water use, thermostatic setting, electricity pricing, and whether you operate heater at peak pricing, etc.
http://waterheatertimer.org/9-ways-to-save-with-water-heater.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-much-does-it-cost-to-run-water-heater.html

The most important measure of water heater cost does not have anything to do with Energy-star or energy-factor.
The most important measure is total cost of owning and operating the water heater.
So if you spend $100 more to purchase electric water heater with slightly higher energy factor, then it will not pay you back. The difference will be $2 to $4 per year.
All costs are energy.
The total cost of operating water heater includes purchase price, installation cost, cost of repairs, cost of parts, whether you can fix it yourself, expected life of water heater, and replacement cost.
Every water heater has expected lifespan, and will not have resale value except current price of scrap.

Electric water heaters cost more to operate per month than same-size gas water heater.
Gas water heater might cost less over the life of water heater, but gas water heaters are increasingly expensive to repair, and increasingly more complicated, and cost more up-front to buy.

Electric water heaters cost less to buy, are easy to install yourself, are fully repairable by homeowner using generic off-the-shelf parts, and can be made to last many years by keeping tank clean and replacing anode rod every 2 years.
You can make ordinary 6-year electric water heater from box store last almost indefinitely.
Avoid electric water water heater that has electronic controls.

My family is moving in...how do i increase hot water availability?


large water heater, turn p the themo stat to a higher setting ( watch for burns with young childern and older folks)

or the best install a tempering valve. this valve mixs hot water with cold water before it goes into the building.

Again if you have young ones or old people they can burn faster than any other group.the best is a larger heater for the DIY person.

Thanks Tom

How do you set tempature to make the water stay hotter longer? I have a Rheem 82v66 2 (65 gal) and cant fill my bath tub with out running out of hot water.


65 gallon water heater should fill more than 1 bathtub since typical bath only uses 12-14 gallons hot water. First hour delivery on your tank should be greater than 60 gallons.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Hot-water-use-chart.html

Since you have such a small amount of hot water, it sounds like bottom element is burned out, or one of the thermostats is bad. There are two thermostats, and two 4500 Watt elements on 65 gallon tank.
If upper element was burned out, or water heater was not getting 240V electricity, then you would have NO hot water. So we know upper element is good and circuit is good.

Ordinary tank-type electric water heater is fully repairable by homeowner and parts are available at hardware or home center.
I suggest taking 30 minutes and doing troubleshoot before replacing any parts.
Buy cheap multimeter from home center.
When testing voltage, rotate multimeter dial to 240-250-277 VAC
When testing elements or continuity, rotate dial to Ohms.

Cold water pressure poor in shower. Just had Rheem installed.


You might have clog in water lines.
If shower is only place where low pressure exists, then clog is probably at shower valve.
Disassemble valve and see if clog will flush out.
From there, you have to keep moving back along cold water line looking for pipe filled with sediment or elbow that has obstruction.

If pressure problem is bad at every cold tap, but doesn't affect Hot water, then clog is inside Cold line somewhere after water heater connects to cold line.
Buy a pressure gauge that connects to water hose.
Buy adapter that also fits pipe thread.
For example Brady BTG 100.
Test outdoor spigot for baseline pressure.
Open cold tap inside house and see how much pressure drops.
Close cold line and open hot tap and see how much pressure drops.

Next, move pressure gauge along cold water line.
Take apart pipes and inspect for obstruction at elbow or pipes filled with sediment.
Look for any place galvanized pipe connects to copper pipe, since this will be likely place for obstruction because of bi-metal corrosion.

Seems as though there is a whole in the tank causing wter to spew out, The whole is yhe top of the tank and appears to be very small, can this be patched or soldered?


If water heater has a hole, then water heater is rusted out and must be replaced.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-at-bottom-of-water-heater.html

Immediate problem is ruptured tank.
Water heaters are under pressure, and rusted water heaters rupture and water runs until water is shut off.
This causes major damage inside home.

Protect yourself first, and then let's talk more.
1) Turn off water at shut off located on cold water line above tank.
2) Turn off power to water heater:
Gas heater, rotate valve to 'pilot' so pilot is lit but burner does not turn ON.
Electric heater, turn off circuit breaker.
3) Open tub spout on hot side and let run a bit to relieve pressure.
4) Now your property is safe.

You can limp along with failed heater if leak is slow.
Turn heater ON when you need hot water.
Typical Gas heater makes 41 gallons hot water per hour.
Typical Electric heater makes 21 gallons hot water.
Shower uses 5-9 gallons hot water, bath uses 12-14 gallons hot water.

If you are going to install heater yourself:
Look at label on side of old tank to identify size and particulars.
I buy ordinary heaters from Lowes and Home Depot and always look at scratch-n-dent models.
Buy same size heater if it worked fine before.
Buy new flexible water connectors.
Set water heater in drip pan.
Offer 10% less than price shown.

#1 rule) tankless heaters are a rich-man's toy, because tankless will never pay you back, and will become major money pit with 1 repair.
2) How to install gas heater:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-gas-water-heater.html
3) How to install electric heater:
Read link above because many of same steps apply to electric.
The difference with electric, is turn off power, disconnect wires, and reconnect wires exactly like before. Set electric heater directly on insulated surface like dense blue styrafoam. Cut styrafoam in a circle so it fits inside dip pan.

Is the water heater in a basement or an area thats cold? A water heater jacket may help.

If not ,try setting the heat up a little higher on it until you have more then a 5 min hot shower.
