SECTION III: GENERAL INFORMATION

FEATURES

The Bradford White EVERHOT® IGE series tankless water heater is a high output, high efficiency appliance, which heats the water continuously as hot water is being drawn for use. Unlike tank type storage water heaters, this water heater does not store hot water. The burner operates whenever there is a demand for hot water and is off when the water flow stops. Hot water is continuously supplied for any length of time required, as long as the specified flow rates are not exceeded. There is no need to set the temperature higher than required for sufficient capacity. The EVERHOT water heater has sufficient capacity to supply several hot water faucets simultaneously. The hot water flow capability will be dependent upon the temperature of the outlet water selected. More detail can be found under the “Temperature Adjustment” section of this Installation and Operating Instruction Manual. Your plumbing professional should determine your hot water requirements before installing this water heater to be sure the capacity is sufficient for your application.

The IGE series water heaters are designed to be installed outdoors on an outside wall. The water heater is compact (23 5/8” (60 cm) H x 13 3/4” (34.9 cm) W x 8 7/8” (22.6 cm) D) and mounts on an outside wall using the supplied wall bracket. No indoor space is needed and the water heater can be mounted at a height convenient for servicing.

The weight is less than 50 pounds (23 kg) and can be installed by 1 person.

The burners ignite within 3 seconds of water flow (1/2 gallon/minute (1.9 L/m) minimum) by direct spark ignition. There is no standing pilot.

A variable speed combustion air blower forces the combustion air supply into the burner compartment.

No venting system required. For outdoor installation only.

An optional recess box is available which allows the water heater to be recessed into an outside wall and conceal the piping behind a cover for a more attractive installation. The box enclosure dimensions are: 40 ½” H x 14 ¾” W x 9 ½” D. Contact your Bradford White supplier to order this optional accessory.

The burner flame is continuously monitored and modulated to match the heating requirements of the water flow. Temperature and flow sensors continually monitor the water flow and outlet water temperature and adjust the burner and combustion air blower to maintain temperature.

The included, remote mount Main Control may be conveniently located near the point of use and is adjustable from 96-160°Ffor residential models(IGE-199Rseries), or96-180°Ffor commercial models(IGE-199Cseries). In addition to the Main Control, up to two optional bathroom controls are available on the residential models for setting the temperature in the bathroom fixtures up to 120°F.

The Remote Main Control also displays fault codes if the water heater malfunctions to assist with servicing the water heater.

The heat exchanger coil is provided with anti-freezeheaters for cold climate conditions for protection as low as-30°F(-34°C).Solenoids should be installed to drain the water heater in the event of a power failure.

The water heater is very quiet in operation.

SECTION IV: INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

WARNING

INSTALLATION OF THIS WATER HEATER REQUIRES ABILITY EQUIVALENT TO THAT OF A LICENSED PLUMBER. PLUMBING, AIR SUPPLY, VENTING, GAS SUPPLY AND ELECTRICAL WORK ARE REQUIRED.

DO NOT ATTEMPT TO LIGHT ANY GAS APPLIANCE IF YOU ARE NOT CERTAIN OF THE FOLLOWING:

Liquefied petroleum gases/propane gas and natural gas have an odorant added by the gas supplier that aids in detection of the gas.

Most people recognize this odor as a “sulfur” or “rotten egg” smell.

Other conditions, such as “odorant fade” can cause the odorant to diminish in intensity, or “fade”, and not be as readily detectable.

If you have a diminished sense of smell, or are in any way unsure of the presence of gas, immediately contact your gas supplier from a telephone in another building.

Gas detectors are available. Contact your gas supplier or plumbing professional for more information.

Liquefied petroleum gases/propane gas is heavier than air and will remain at floor level if there is a leak. Basements, crawl spaces, closets and areas below ground level will serve as pockets for accumulation of leaking gas. Before lighting, smell all around the appliance area for gas. Be sure to smell next to the floor.

IF YOU SMELL GAS:

Do not try to light any appliance.

Do not touch any electric switch; do not use any telephone in your building.

Immediately call your gas supplier from a telephone in another building. Follow the gas supplier’s instructions.

If you cannot reach your gas supplier, call the fire department.

DO NOT OPERATE THE APPLIANCE UNTIL THE LEAKAGE IS CORRECTED!

WARNING

This water heater must be located in an area where leakage of the heat exchanger coil, water line connections, or the pressure relief valve will not result in damage to the area adjacent to the water heater or the outside building structure.

9

WARNING

This water heater is suitable for potable water heating only. DO NOT use this water heater for space heating or combination space heating/domestic water heating.

This water heater is not suitable for use in pool or spa applications.

The water heater must be installed outdoors. Failure to properly install this water heater outdoors may result in property damage, personal injury, or death. Refer to the installation of the water heater in this installation and instruction manual for details on the location and installation outdoors. DO NOT INSTALL INDOORS.

WARNING

Pressure relief valve discharge piping must be piped near the ground or drain to eliminate potential of severe burns. Insulate and use electrical heat tape around the discharge drain pipe in any area where freezing could occur. Do not install any shut-offvalves, plugs or caps to the pressure relief valve or discharge piping.

CAUTION

If building cold water supply has a back-flowpreventer, check valve or water meter with check valve, provisions for thermal expansion of water in the hot water system must be provided.

DANGER

Temperature setting should not exceed safe temperature at fixtures. See water temperature control warnings in the “Temperature Adjustment Section” of this Installation and Operating Instruction Manual. If higher preheat temperatures are necessary to obtain adequate booster output, add an ASSE approved mixing valve for hot water supplied to fixtures.
