Head to Head
Tank vs. Tankless
How a 100-gallon commercial water heater tank was outperformed by a tankless unit that uses less than 0.5 gallons.
Intellihot’s alternative to the popular 100 Gallon Commercial Gas Water Heater is a direct-fired gas water heater that has been built to deliver unbeatable high capacity, reliability and high-efficiency water heating.
Dynamic Storage - New technology in our commercial water heaters
The secret to outperforming a 100 gallon commercial gas water heater is in our dynamic storage technology.
In a head-to-head comparison of a restaurant application, the Neuron iN199 outperformed a 199,000 BTU/hr. tank heater with 100 gallons of stored water. While the tank heater maintained ±6F of setpoint temperature only 2% of the time, the iN199 maintained ±6F set point temperature 99% of the time, even with rapid load changes.
This is possible because of our patented Dynamic Storage™ Technology. Our system uses an ultra powerful internal circulator effectively moving 300 Gallons of water every hour. This together with our high-speed controller that checks temperatures 20 times every second results in Dynamic Storage capacity that can meet dump load demands. See the graph below for real world results.
