WHAT IS A MIXERGY TANK?
HOT WATER TANKS, RE-INVENTED
THE MIXERGY TANK
AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH TO HOT WATER
Only heat what you need. Save <20% on hot water bills by reducing energy wastage.
WHAT'S DIFFERENT ABOUT MIXERGY?
HOW DO MIXERGY TANKS WORK?
Conventional hot water tanks heat all or nothing irrespective of how much hot water is required by the user. This can waste energy heating water that isn’t required and can result in unnecessarily long heating times.
The Mixergy tank differs to conventional tanks in three fundamental ways:
- Novel top-up technology enables you to selectively heat by volume, rather than time
- Temperature sensors make sterilisation cycles and hot water volumes measurable
- Internet connectivity and the Mixergy App provides smart remote control
TECH BEHIND THE TANK: TOP-UP TECHNOLOGY
SAVE 5-20% ON HOT WATER BILLS
Mixergy’s top-up technology exploits thermal stratification (water rising when it heats) to ‘float’ hot water on top of cold to enable users to selectively heat different volumes of water. When the tank charges (heats), it increases the portion of water which is heated from the top down, rather than trying to heat the entire volume at once, as conventional cylinders do.
By only heating what you need you can save 5-20% on hot water bills through energy savings.
HOT WATER READY 5X FASTER
Top-up technology also enables Mixergy to deliver usable hot water up to 5x faster for direct electric tanks, and up to 2x faster for indirect gas tanks. By heating smaller volumes of water as you need it, hot water is ready faster.
TECH BEHIND THE TANK: NOVEL DIFFUSERS
30% more hot water = install smaller
In conventional hot water cylinders, your hot water is diluted by the cold water that enters the tank whilst you ‘draw off‘ your hot water. Mixergy uses novel diffusers that prevent the cold water from stirring up your hot water. In practice this means a Mixergy cylinder retains 30% more usable hot water when compared side-by-side to a conventional hot water cylinder (National Physical Laboratory accredited).
The ability to hold 30% more usable hot water means you can install a smaller cylinder, making more room available in your airing cupboard.
TECH BEHIND THE TANK: INTERNET CONNECTIVITY
SMART HOT WATER CONTROL
Each Mixergy tank has an onboard smart controller that connects the tank to the internet. This allows you to control your Mixergy tank via the Mixergy app. You can: Boost instantaneously, set schedules, track your consumption and costs, change your energy sources and much more!
Each Mixergy tank also comes with a handheld controller that allows you to locally check how much water you have available and boost there and then. We affectionately call this controller ‘The Gauge’.
TECH BEHIND THE TANK: Gas Boiler Optimisation
Lower gas consumption by up to 21%
Fitting a Mixergy cylinder could typically reduce the amount of gas used to provide hot water by 12%, compared to fitting a new market leading alternative cylinder.
If a boiler is short cycling regularly, fitting a Mixergy cylinder can help to eradicate this, leading to total water heating gas savings of up to 21%.
These savings have been independently verified by the Energy Savings Trust. To see their full report, click here.
Machine learning is increasingly becoming an integral part of day-to-day technology, improving how systems work based on prior experience.
Mixergy’s automatic heating control feature uses machine learning to learn and predict at what times of day the user will need hot water and will automatically adjust the schedule as required.
This helps the user to optimise their energy use and cost of heating water and will heat in the cheapest possible way for the user’s specific utility tariff, whether it’s a fixed-rate, economy 7 or smart tariffs.
The Mixergy tank monitors and controls the hot water environment to prevent unhygienic conditions. As a minimum, the Mixergy tank runs a periodic fortnightly sterilisation routine to ensure water is clean and hygienic.
Corrective action is automatically taken to ensure water is heated to a high enough temperature to prevent the harbouring of bacteria such as legionella.
This is unlike conventional tanks, which often fail to achieve sterilising temperatures due to their internal design and do not have any form of sterilisation check.
