Summer input water temp: 70F; Recovery rate to 120F: 37 gallons per hour
Winter input water temp: 50F; Recovery rate to 120F: 27 gallons per hour
On this basis, the heater is scheduled to run for 45 minutes a day in the summer (3.375 kWh per day), and 75 minutes a day in the winter (5.625 kWh per day). Prior to installing the ELK9200, the water heater ran for about 1 hour per day in the summer (4.5 kWh) and 2 hours per day in the winter (9 kWh). So my energy saving is 1.125 kWh per day in the summer and 3.375 kWh per day in the winter. At 10 cents per kWh, my monthly saving is $3.37 from April - October, and $10.13 from November - March, giving an annual saving of $74.24. So basically, in just one year, I’ve recovered the price I paid for this relay.
There is another advantage to having the water heater under z-wave control. I have Aeotec z-wave water flood sensors and a Econet Controls z-wave main water valve controller. When the water flood sensors detect water, my z-wave hub (Wink hub) is programmed to turn off the main water and also the water heater, reducing the chances of the elements burning out.
Also, I want to mention that even with combined with the cost of a z-wave/wifi/zigbee/x10/insteon controlled outlet, the ELK9200 is significantly less expensive than competing products available on Amazon.
Cons: I don't understand why this is in such a large steel enclosure. Seems it could be much smaller. Also, for what it does the price is too high.
Installation was easy once I got the holes drilled in the concrete block wall by the hot water heater. You do have to have some knowledge of working with electrical wiring or else hire an electrician to make the connection to the circuit breaker panel.
Works well so far for three months. This is the ideal way to remotely control a larger electrical appliance that uses high amperage.
