Gas Heater Compatibility

PowerX can optimize 80% of gas heaters with a tank. Gas heaters that PowerX can optimize have electronic ignition controls, are powered by a plug into a wall outlet, or have controllers that have a “COM” interface. For these heaters, PowerX provides both optimization and insights via the PowerX dashboard.

PowerX cannot optimize tankless gas heaters, nor tanked gas heaters that have old-style, mechanical or atmospheric-vented controls. However, even for heaters PowerX cannot optimize PowerX can provide insights on temperature and energy usage and comparison with other heaters and users in your area.

Electric Heater Compatibility

PowerX can optimize 95% of electric heaters with a tank. Electric heaters that can be optimized have a junction box with two metal covers on top. For these heaters, PowerX provides both optimization and insights via the PowerX dashboard. PowerX can also be installed with heaters that do not have a junction box on top, however, installation for these heaters is only recommended if done by an expert.

PowerX cannot optimize tankless electric heaters. However, even for heaters without a tank PowerX can provide insights on temperature and energy usage and comparison with other heaters and users in your area.
