I know we’ve got different bottles here but the let’s talk about the short locs yeah here’s our short models here notice your 30 gallons short the pre naked unit had a 20 and a half inch diameter our standard naika has a 22 right or our blanketed version is only 20 so we’re actually smaller that’s us because the original form factor own diameter which is great if you have some space concerns gained a little bit of height right a little bit of height there and again that is a brand new unit hasn’t been offered previously and then you’re 40 and 50 gallon there’s is a standard naked unit and they pretty much get about two inches larger across the board ok so again the 40-50 won’t be available with the blankets just the the 30 short that’s right ok what about our low voice low boys this is always a big question.
What about the lowboy units our 30s and 40s we see here you still have both options you can either go with the non blanketed standard naked or the blanketed naked version the big deal with with low boys is that 50 gallon low right now that the 50 gallon low is not offered and then we look at our side connects again 30 40 pretty much same story you can either take the blanket aversion or the non blanketed version and again that really comes down to whether or not you have some space requirements that really dictates which one of those you need but you have those two options what about the mobile home electric water heaters.
I know that we make mobile home electric water heaters did they do any were there any changes a little bit not real dramatic if we can look at the graphic here and see here’s our before April sixteenth our 30 gallon low and tall and then our forties shorts we went from a 22 inch diameter on the 30 low to a 22 inch diameter on the 30 low prenat post naika but again that’s a blanketed version we see that little ass trick there Tesla said that’s a blanketed heater now our 30 tall went from an 18-2 a 19 I’ll in our reference and that’ll lows and our 40 short again those short models because of the form factor of those they’re going to get a little bit larger that raised about two inches yes I mean they’re really really wasn’t a lot of change in the mobile homes so so let’s kind of talk about you know.
If we’re replacing our water heater yeah and I’ve got electric water heater let’s talk about some options that kind of walk us through it because that that’s what really we need to know yeah I really do yeah pretty much like we was thought about a regardless of your application we’ve got an option that’s available for that and in form factor is the big driver behind that after how much hot water delivery it takes so those are the two things that we have to look at in terms of options and what heater is going to be able to go where so let’s look at here let’s say we take a 50 gallon tall that’s a pretty standard unit if you had a 50 gallons hall electric previously this was a 54 inches tall with a 20 inch Diana now if you’re going to replace that unit your first option would be again your standard naika unit where the extra insulation is built into the form factor itself that unit is going to be a little bit taller it’s going to be 60 and a half inches tall with a 22 inch diameter .
So we’re gaining 22 inches now in most cases this is all you’re going to have to worry about in most cases this additional 2 inches diameter is not going to be that big deal you take the old how old heater out you put this new eater in by to be no big deal now if you do run into some space restraints then your next option is going to be we have a 50 gallon tall with a blanket ok now that unit is going to be 60 and a quarter inches tall 21 inches in diameter again we’re getting a lot closer to that original form factor of the old heater so spaces are concerned you can go with that one now there is a fourth option if spaces is really a concern and we just absolutely cannot use that 21 inch diameter with like it’s 20 was the old one and we have to have 20 there’s no if ands or buts about it what you can do is actually go down in size go to a 40 gallon tank okay now.
I know what you’re thinking yeah your safety they don’t wait a minute I’m not going to get enough hot water yeah you’re telling me that I’m going to take my 50 out and put a 40 and now I’m not going to have enough water it’s actually not the case because by going with that 40 the key is adding a mixing paddle if we have to maintain that 20 inch diameter and there’s no way around it we can move one step down in size go down to the 40 add a mixing valve what that mixing valve allows us to do is now we can adjust the tank temperature to whatever we want zactly right because the thermostatic mixing valve is going to control the outlet temperature of that water heater down to 120 that’s what we’re going to set the mixing bout to that would allow us to store at 160 i wanted to because we’re raising the temperature inside the tank to get to that optimal shower temperature we’re using a whole lot less water yeah we’re going to use less hot water and add more cold water yeah by adding a mixing valve you can effectively increase the size of all the water heater by one size that means by adding a mixing valve you can take a 40 and make it seem like a 50 make a 30 seem like a 40 just by adding the mixing valve and raising that tank temperature.
