Energy Kinetics' System 2000 Boiler combines heat and hot water into one and delivers maximum comfort and efficiency. It eliminates the flaws associated with traditional boiler systems and provides many benefits to homeowners. By comparing homes with all factors constant except for the heating system, Energy Kinetics found that the System 2000 had an average annual savings of 40 percent. Continue reading below to learn some of the many features and benefits of this system.
Features and Benefits
Energy Kinetics' Energy Manager
This is the "brain" of the system that works to maximize heating efficiency, cut fuel bills, and integrate seamlessly with the boiler. By quickly finding surplus energy in the system and redirecting it into your home or hot water storage tank, the Energy Manager ensures no wasted energy or money. It also comes with a 5-year warranty and lifetime protection plan to give you peace of mind.
Efficient water flow
The average family uses 64 gallons of hot water every day for showers, laundry, kitchen use, etc. While this is too much to produce for a typical boiler, System 2000 can make as much as eight times more hot water than an electric water heater and three to four times more than a typical gas water heater.
The System 2000 boiler design combines heat and hot water into one unit and delivers more hot water with less energy. The hot water tank uses a high-performance plate heat exchanger to heat the tank from the top down. As a result, remaining heat in the boiler can be transferred to the tank. This allows the tanks to finish hot and fully charged while the boiler finishes "cool" with no wasted energy.
The water flow in this system outperforms indirect tanks and tankless coil boilers. Plus, there are no studs to break or gaskets to leak, and the non-stick coated plate heat exchangers have a corrosion-proof barrier against hard water and scaling. What does this all mean for you? You'll have endless hot showers, a system with less issues, and more money in your pocket.
Other boilers typically operate around 62 decibels, which can be compared to a conversation in a restaurant. At 47 decibels, the System 2000 is comparable to light rainfall. To understand the difference even better, know that one decibel higher is 30 percent louder when it comes to boilers.
By deconstructing every component of the traditional cast iron boiler, the engineers at Energy Kinetics were able to develop a superior design and utilize high-quality materials to create a much higher efficiency unit. When compared to other combi boilers, System 2000 is more robust, produces more hot water for longer periods of time, and has a longer lifespan. According to their website, some of the improvements in this boiler include:
The energy converter is a proven 30 year spiral design for the highest efficiency. There are no sections or pins to foul, clean, or leak.
A swing down door for easy access.
Air elimination for quiet operation.
High Performance ceramic chamber provides near perfect combustion for clean burning operation.
10 foot wide open flue passage boosts efficiency and ease of service.
Hefty 2 inch thick insulation wrap for high efficiency and quiet operation.
Advanced plate heat exchanger.
High efficiency ECM circulator.
A scale stopper for reliable operation (up to 25 grains of hardness) without cleaning for hard water.
Value and longevity
Between the high-quality pressure vessel, lifetime limited warranty, and 10-year labor warranty for residential pressure vessels, your system is sure to last. The warranty is backed by a 40+ year track record of proven, industry-leading pressure vessel longevity. In addition, the pressure vessel warranty can be transferred from the original homeowner to a new one -- so you don't have to worry about losing it if you happen to move.
Easier installation and maintenance
Energy Kinetics' pressure vessel doesn't have cast iron sections and gaskets that can leak and fail. There's also no condensate trap, drain, or corrosive condensate that comes with many condensing boilers. All of this makes for an easier installation and lessens the chance of service-related calls down the road.
In addition to all the benefits listed above, System 2000 saves up to 40 percent (or more) of energy compared to other boilers. That means you can enjoy greater comfort without wasting money on energy bills. It also has five-zone control, which is upgradable to 15 zones and easily piped to multiple zones.
The system runs on natural gas, propane, oil heat, or bioheat, making it flexible for any home. Plus, all Propane and Natural Gas systems include a gas protection alarm that detects unsafe combustible gas or carbon monoxide levels. Moreover, Energy Kinetics systems have been proudly made in the U.S. for over 40 years.
Residential and Commercial Models Available
System 2000 is designed for chimney-vented homes and homeowners who want up to a 40 percent decrease in their monthly energy bills. It provides whisper-quiet operation and nearly endless hot water, making it ideal for any family or home. The system is available in two sizes.
According to their website, the EK1 Frontier is suitable for homes in cold climates with up to 150,000 BTU/hour. The stackable model is ideal where there is limited space, and has a 40-gallon tank for nearly endless hot water.
The EK2 Frontier (up to 250,000 BTU/hour) is intended for large residential homes and even light commercial settings.
The EK3 Frontier (up to 399,000 BTU/hour) is designed for commercial spaces and can be used in a multiple boiler configuration for larger applications.
