SHC Mini-Tank Water Heaters excel at supplying hot water at a sink for hand washing or for kitchen applications. An SHC saves water and electricity by putting hot water right where it is needed rather than having a long pipe run from a central hot water tank. The small tank and good insulation reduces the stand-by losses compared with larger tank water heaters and the wait for hot water at the tap is reduced to a minimum. An SHC can also be installed in-line with a central tank to allow immediate hot water draws without waiting for a long pipe run to purge itself of cold water. It may also be used to buffer temperatures in a DHW recirculation loop. Lightweight and compact, an SHC mounts right under or near a sink with its included bracket. Once it is filled with water, it is easy to simply plug it into a 120-Volt outlet as no special wiring is required. A T&P valve is supplied and should be installed.
