Model and type review

There are different types of electric water heaters from the US Craftmaster developed with more or less advanced features, including the Energy Smart, standard, and heat pump types.

Energy Smart electric water heater

US Craftmaster electric water heaters from the Energy Smart series are designed to offer a user-friendly setup for customers. The procedure to set temperature is quite easy, whereas special locks are installed to make them safe from kids’ interaction. These are designed to save energy through their responsive approach.

Standard, Energy Smart, and Vacation modes are the patterns of the operating modes that can be selected according to the requirements.

Energy Smart mode saves more than 30 percent energy, whereas Vacation mode is perfect to set when residents are not at home.

An easy-to-use LCD screen allows easy temperature change, problem diagnostic, and monitoring of the current water temperature, while the Smart-Grid ready feature allows useful utility management.

Besides the stainless-steel elements that are durable and highly effective, electric heaters are commonly prone to burn if enough water is not present in the tank. Energy Smart water heater offers dry-fire protection which prevents the tank from burning even in low water. People commonly choose this type of electric heater over others to protect any unanticipated incident from occurring in a case of low water.

Energy Smart water heaters also come with a self-cleaning system that utilizes the specially designed dip tube to clean the tank efficiently and to rid of dregs present in the water, offering long-lasting performance. They use the non-CFC insulation foam, which helps maintain the water temperature and play down the standby temperature loss.

US Craftmaster electric water heaters from this series are available in the capacity range from 40 to 80 gallons, covering homes up to 4 baths, all backed-up with a warranty from 9 to 12 years.
