Aquanta- “Nest”-Like Smart Water Heater Controller Launches

Aquanta Smart water heater regulator

Controlling and maintaining your home’s water heater just got infinitely easier, more convenient – and smarter – with the launch of the Aquanta Water Heater Controller, a first-of-its-kind system that enables remote and convenient control of a water heater via a smart phone or web-enabled device.  As the Nest thermostat does for HVAC systems, Aquanta gives users a much more efficient, versatile way to use (or turn off and NOT use) their water heater, the 2nd largest consumer of home energy, while also saving money on their household energy bills.

Aquanta is small

Aquanta turns your dumb water heater into a smart, energy-efficient one – heating water only when you need it and saving you money when you don’t.  All from the convenience of your smart phone or tablet,” said Matt Carlson, CEO of the McLean, VA-based Aquanta Inc.  “Until now, water heaters, despite their ubiquity and role as hub of the home’s plumbing network, have largely been stuck in the basement and excluded from the ‘smart home’ trend.  Aquanta is about to change all of that.”

Aquanta gives users a much more efficient, versatile way to use (or turn off and NOT use) their water heater, the 2nd largest consumer of home energy, while also saving money on their household energy bills.

Aquanta product attributes include:

  • Convenient control from a smart phone – monitor and change settings from anywhere
  • Smart technology that learns homeowners’ hot water usage behavior and heats water accordingly
  • Manual scheduling for turning the water heater on or off to match a changing schedule
  • Dashboard showing hot water usage and when availability is low
  • Maintenance alerts, including water heater leak detection

Aquanta -How it Works

Here’s how it works: The Aquanta controller easily installs onto your home’s existing water heater.  Its enabling technology is its proprietary “Enthalpy Sensor”, which can accurately measure both energy going into a water heater as well the energy being used.  Aquanta’s software uses this sensor data to “learn” and control the water heating according to a homeowner’s usage patterns.

 

Aquanta is designed for either easy professional installation or for self-installation by DIYers with basic plumbing skills.  The device is compatible with nearly all electric water heaters and gas models that have electronic ignition controls (see Aquanta website for more details).

Where to Buy

Aquanta Inc. has spent the past two years developing Aquanta and is making the product available for pre-purchase for $149 on its website, www.aquanta.io.  The first 1,000 pre-purchase customers will receive a free leak detection sensor ($25 value), and Aquanta is projected to ship beginning in late July 2016.
