The water heater of the future…and the future is now!

Home ownership today is all about sustainable maintence. Installing a product that will save you money and is envionrmnetally friendly is an obvious choice for most consumers. The Eternal hybrid tankless water heater offers you both of those advantages for your water heater needs. Combining higher efficiency with lower energy use makes the Eternal hybrid water heater a product that Baker Elman loves to see customers interested in. Using different technology than a traditional water heater allows the Eternal hybrid tankless water heater to function efficiently and avoid the “cold water sandwich” that other tankless water heaters can cause.

In Eternal’s Counter Flow design, cold water enters from the bottom up as a way of self cleaning the sedimentation, while heat is pushed through 44 radiating transfer pipes.

The Eternal Condensing Hybrid’s innovative 3 cycle process pushes heat in 3 directions through the water and maximizes energy transfer. In simplest terms, our patent slows the exhaust of heat by reusing the energy multiple times, rather than reducing water pressure.

The end result is a small heat exchanger that is capable of replacing multiple tanks, while supplying endless hot water with consistent water pressure and doing it efficiently time after time.

From October 1st 2012 until December 31st, 2012 Eternal is offering a $100.00 cash rebate on their GU100 model. Eternal Hybrid Water Heaters have a $100.00 cash rebate for GU100 purchased from Oct 1-Dec 31 2012

With the Eternal water heater there is no more cold shower for the last one up in the morning. Call Baker Elman today to set up an appointment to evaluate your home for an Eternal water heater. We’d love to help you save money and energy in your home!

Boston Plumbing Company’s David Elman offers expert insights on frozen pipes: Interview with 7 News

NEWTON, Mass. — The cold temperatures on Monday could mean problems in your home, and one of the biggest – frozen pipes.

The subfreezing temperatures have put one bathroom out of commission in Newton.

“The pipe to the bathtub is frozen, and the drain, so it’s not working,” said the homeowner. “No bathtub. No shower.”

David Elman of Baker-Elman Plumbing says he’s been responding to multiple frozen pipe calls all day long.

“No heat. No water – just typical cold weather related issues,” said Elman. “All because of frozen pipes.”

Elman says this particular pipe froze because it was in an uninsulated part of the house over the garage. He says to help prevent frozen pipes, you can insulate the pipe or the area around it, run a faucet connected to the pipe, and for houses with hot water heat, don’t turn the thermostat down at night.

“Keep it at one temperature through the cold weather because the water will circulate more often and won’t freeze,” said Elman.

But Elman says frozen pipes can’t always be prevented.

“Pray for warm weather would be the only way. In some houses there’s no way to prevent it,” said Elman.

Elman says there is one other thing homeowners can do. If the frozen pipe is inside a cabinet, he suggests that you open the cabinet doors to expose that pipe to warmer air.
