Residential Electric Water Heater – Cascade – 60 Imp. Gal. ECOPEAK®

Equipped with technology

This water heater offers all of the outstanding technical features of the Standard models plus many more. With a 60 imperial gallon capacity and three elements, it consumes less energy than traditional two-element models when demand is high. It provides the same pleasant temperature as our Standard models, but since cold water enters through the bottom of the tank, it delivers 10% more hot water. It can be connected to 208 V or 240 V power supply.

Tried and tested technology

A two-year pilot project was conducted with 75 households to evaluate the three-element water heater’s performance. The study showed that customers do not see any difference in quality between the twoelement model and the new environmentally responsible water heater. In fact, the three-element model is more reliable, since there is less stress on its electric components.

Unlike traditional two-element water heaters, whose power demand is concentrated during peak periods, three-element heaters draw less power and spread energy consumption throughout the day.
