Energy insight monitors how much power the water heater is adding to the airflow to heat it up.


The formula for added power calculation:



Where:



Heater valve leakage monitors ΔT then output of the heater's sequence is 0% (no need for active heating). The increase of the ΔT by more than 2 oC indicates the leak of the heater valve and triggers alarm AL-187 Leakage heater valve.

Alarm AL-187 Leakage heater valve is triggered if the heater is adding more than +2 oC to the passing air then heating is not required (indicating valve leakage)
