Amazing new system starts water off hot - and stays that way

Imagine a hot water tank that's about the size of an average football, saves household budgets by hundreds of dollars and starts off at the desired heat for either a bath or a shower - with none of the waste associated for warming the water. That time is today, with the introduction of the Heatworks Model 1.

Jerry Callahan also claims in his Kickstarter video if the Model 1 is used during new construction in lieu of the installation of hot water piping, home owners could see immediate and long-term savings.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The designers of this amazing new heater say they've solved both the bulk and break issues of both 60-gallon water tanks and tank-less heaters. The Heatworks Model 1 is a mere 12 inches long and six inches in diameter.

The bulky, large hot water tanks that take up space in garages are outdated and take up far too much space. While tank-less water heaters save on space, they require the user to flow cold water until the water gets hot, which wastes several gallons of water - which is becoming an issue in water-strapped communities.

Heatworks project manager Jerry Callahan began his search for a hot water solution when he looked for a tank-less water heater for an outdoor shower he was building.

"(Jerry) was discouraged from buying any of the existing products because of their high failure rate and complexity in selecting the correct model. (He) took on the challenge and invented the patented technology that is the core of ISI," the ISI Web site states. Callahan is also the CEO of ISI Technology, which already offers another tank-less option for users who don't want to wait for the one to about to be "crowd-funded."

Two resistance elements from a standard tankless water heater, one with evidence of erosion due to high-heat mineral build-up.


Callahan also claims in his Kickstarter video if the Model 1 is used during new construction in lieu of the installation of hot water piping, home owners could see immediate and long-term savings.

The foot-long Model 1 claims a savings of 40 percent on energy costs and 10 percent on wasted water compared to an electric tank-style heater, according to Gizmodo.

The Model 1 boasts two distinct improvements, Using graphite electrodes and printed circuit boards, and gets rid of the need for a flow switch. In removing the erodible resistance heating elements, Heatworks claims to achieve truly instant hot water.

Also on the Heatworks Kickstarter page is a Department of Energy report that claims an average family can save $100 each year by switching to a tank-less system. Reducing water usage by 20-40 gallons as-advertised, that is more cash in the collective family pocket.
