Eternal GU100 Challenges Tank Water Heaters at AHR 2012

Grand Hall, the manufacturer of the Eternal hybrid water heater, launched the new GU100 at the AHR Expo (the International Air Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Exposition) in January.

The GU100 offers endless hot water and is Energy Star listed at 0.94EF. According to Eternal sources, the unit is ideal for retrofitting because it is the first high efficiency hybrid that fits into existing homes' infrastructure. It can support up to two simultaneous applications such as running two showers or a shower and a dishwasher at the same time. The Eternal GU100 can easily replace a traditional 50-gallon standard tank freeing up valuable space in a home and is compatible with traditional and retrofit recirculation systems to deliver instant hot water.

Since the GU100 operates on 1/2-in. gas connections, installation is quick and simple, saving the contractor time and the homeowner money, Eternal sources state. Its lightweight compact design and convenient top-mounted water connections make it easy for a single plumber to install the unit.

Other features include:

  • On-demand hot water with 96% thermal efficiency.
  • 15-year residential no-leak warranty.
  • 100% stainless steel heat exchanger with built-in reserve tank that eliminates the cold water sandwich.
