Marey 10L is a tankless water heater that operates by natural gas. Unless you are living in a one-bathroom studio apartment or looking for a water heater for your RV, do not need to read any further. But if you are looking for a cost-efficient tankless water heater for your apartment with a small demand for water, go ahead and learn all the juicy facts about this model!
Energy Savings & Performance
To start talking about energy usage, first of all, we would like to mention that Marey 10L does not require electricity to operate. Yes, it uses natural gas or propane as a power source but still, most of the gas-powered tankless water heaters need electric power for ignition. In this model, 2D cell batteries are used to ignite the unit instead of electric power. Therefore, Marey 10L will certainly cut off your bills for electricity.
After saving you money for the electricity, Marey 10L also will save you extra money on energy as it is about 87% energy efficient. This may not be the highest rate on the market but can still be considered quite efficient. The unit owes its energy efficiency mostly to its summer/winter modes. This is a feature related to the combustion system. During winter, since the temperature of the inlet water is lower, it needs to be heated more. So, when you activate the winter mode, the unit provides you with a bigger flame to compensate for the extra heat needed. However, during summertime for the inlet water temperature is higher the system regulates the flame accordingly. So, this self-regulation system through a summer/winter switch will definitely save you money.
Marey also prides itself on its safety features one of which is anti-freeze protection. When the temperature goes down the freezing point, the water discharge valve is activated so that all the water inside the internal pipes is removed and is kept from freezing. Another very important feature of the unit is the auto cut-off protection. Auto cut-off protection directly cuts the gas off in case the flame goes out for any reason. By means of this protection measure, both energy is saved and a catastrophe is avoided.
Finally, we would like to mention the hot water supplying performance of the unit. Marey 10L provides 3.1 gallons of hot water per minute. It is ideal for a small apartment since this flow rate is enough to run two to three fixtures at a time, depending on the temperature of the inlet water. One good thing about the flow rate is that you will not have to worry about the low pressure, especially if you are living in a two story house and you need hot water upstairs because Marey 10L requires only 8PSI to fire.
Design & Installation
Marey 10L is as compact as a tankless water heater gets. It is only 28 x 16 x 9 inches and 24 pounds. You can install it anywhere you wish inside your home because it will fit almost anywhere. Furthermore, you will not have to try and hide this unit since its design is also quite impressive. It looks very smart with its digital display and also is very user-friendly, again thanks to this digital display.
You can easily install this unit by yourself if you are an experienced homeowner. All you have to do is to follow the instructions on the manual and the unit gets enough fresh air. Since it is quite easy to install, it won’t take you a lot of time.
