Works great. I set it to turn off the re-circulation pump during the hours while I am normally asleep. If the re-circulation pump is off for 8 hours a day then the cost of heating water for re-circulation is reduced by 33% annually.
GadgetsGo provides the best customer service I have experienced shopping online. They are professional, communicative and stand behind their products !10%. I will definitely use their services in the future and highly recommend them to others.
Advantages: Superior customer service, highly ethical, great prices.
This purchase was a replacement for the previous one, which died after 30 months of use. Not very good lifetime for an electronic item.
It is simple to use and to connect to your Navien inline water heater, but is an indoor only unit and you have to put it in a weather proof box if your water heater is outdoors. We have a mild climate, so temperature is not a concern for the unit being outdoors.
The weather proof box adds about $60 to the cost and is more trouble to install. For the price of the controller, it should be indoor/outdoor. Even better would be to have the function built in to the water heater!
Advantages: small size if indoors
Disadvantages: Not suitable for outdoor use without a water proof box.
This remote control for the Navien water heater works great. It allows so much control over the heater by easy to change settings. We use it to save propane, which our heater runs on. Our heater is in the attic so without this remote, any settings change would require a climb into the attic!
Advantages: Easy settings changes and the ability to turn the heater on and off when not needed. Easy access. 1
