Tecogen Expands Its Line of World's Most Efficient Water Heaters with the Addition of the Water Sourced Ilios Heat Pump

WALTHAM, Mass. -- Tecogen Announces the unveiling of a new water-source version of the Ilios High Efficiency Water Heater, model HEWH-500-WS, at the 2014 AHR Expo to be held at the Javits Center in New York City, January 21-23. This new version will offer both hot water and chilled water simultaneously therefore increasing savings even more. It can also use low-grade waste heat as well as geothermal/groundwater as a "free" energy source. 

Designed to be easily fit through standard doorways, onto elevators, etc. it is also rated for outdoor installation in the event that there is limited mechanical space. An acoustic enclosure ensures quiet operation. Extremely long service intervals (annual preventative maintenance) coupled with availability of the Tecogen factory service program, makes this an attractive option to building owners concerned about rising energy costs.

"We have a lot of exciting things happening with the Ilios product line this year including the addition of the water sourced Ilios," said Stephen Lafaille Product Manager for the Ilios product line.  "It is a very versatile product in that it can act as water-source heat pump hot water heater, water or air-cooled chiller, as well any combination of these using both water and air sources in the same unit via a split system."

This system qualifies for the 10% ITC under the mechanical CHP category.  It also qualifies for both gas and electric utility incentives in many markets.
