Heating

Increase the efficiency of your heating system

When water is heated in a water heater or with a tank-less water heater, hard water always leads to deposits on the heating elements. This layer inevitably causes a great reduction in the capability of the heat to transfer.
A scale deposit of only 2 mm (~0.078 inches) can lead to an energy loss of more than 15 %. The increase in heating time leads to a tremendous rise in your power consumption.

 

Protection for your solar water heating

The energy savings you took into consideration when purchasing a solar water heater may be drastically reduced due to scale deposits. Here, a scale layer of only 1 mm (~0.04 inches) will result in a decrease of efficiency of up to 40 %. With Vulcan you save on energy, cleaning and repairs.
This loss has to be compensated with regular fossil fuels or electric power and much of the savings you were planning to achieve will be obsolete.

Energy loss due to scale

 


Savings in installation costs

Vulcan saves you installation costs. Most water treatments need to be built in the piping system and therefore require a professional plumber to do the installation. Vulcan is installed without any tools, within only a few minutes by yourself. You save money as you do not need to hire anyone.


Throw out those expensive water softeners

Running a water softener is a costly measure. Large amounts of salt are needed to operate the system. On average, a homeowner faces expenses of 100 – 200 EUR (USD 100-200) per year in salt alone. Needless to say, nobody likes carrying around bags of salt.

Furthermore, 115-300 l (30-80 gallons) of water are wasted each time the softener granule has to be washed. Malfunctions and repairs are likely with a built-in system. These can easily add up to hundreds of dollars in repair costs.
► Possible annual savings: ~ 250 EUR (USD 330)

The purchase and installation of a water softener alone would cost at least 800 EUR (USD 1,000) to buy and another 40 – 100 EUR (USD 50-120) for the installation by a plumber. Add annual operating costs and maintenance on top.


Increase the value of your home

Installing an eco-friendly maintenance-free water treatment that conditions all the water running in your home will increase the value of the house for you, your children or for the potential buyer in case you want to put it on the market.

Example of savings potential in an average home with 4 people*

Annual savings potential in EUR
in USD
1 Savings in energy (e.g. 1mm of scale deposits = 15% more energy consumption) e.g.: 1 500 Euro of energy costs p.a. 325.00 ~430.00
2 De-scaling of water heater every two years by a specialist at 150 Euro/ average 75.00 ~95.00
3 Savings of up to 50% on laundry detergent (e.g. 9 Euro/month) at a saving rate of 30% 30.00 ~40.00
4 Savings on softeners for your washing machine 10.00 ~13.00
5 Minimal use of salt for your dishwasher 10.00 ~13.00
6 Savings on aggressive cleaning agents 15.00 ~20.00
7 Savings on shampoo, soap or expensive skin care products 20.00 ~26.00
8 Less time spent cleaning your house, 10 min/week (e.g. cleaning costs at 8 Euro/h) 70.00 ~93.00
9 Longer life span of all appliances and pipes (washing machine, coffee machine, iron, water heater, etc.) 250.00 ~335.00
Typical annual savings 735.00 ~980.00

*The actual savings may vary due to the exact degree of water hardness.
