The demands of today’s busy families can often be a strain on the hot water supply. Not with a Honeywell mixing valve. By raising the stored water temperature to 140°F or higher, less hot water is required to mix with the cold water to reach a comfortable temperature. The mixing action gives you up to 60-gallon performance from a 40-gallon tank, so the last person in the shower is less likely to come out shivering.
Mixing valves also help prevent burns and injuries due to scalding. Burns from hot water can occur in just seconds — even less for small children. A mixing valve reduces the temperature at either the water heater or the faucet, so your family can use the sink, shower or tub without fear of scalding. Install the mixing valve at the water heater to mix the water for the whole house, or at a specific faucet for point-of-use protection.
When a water heater’s temperature is set too low, deadly Legionella bacteria can grow. The growth of Legionella is reduced when the water is heated to 140°F. A Honeywell mixing valve allows you to set your water heater at a higher temperature to kill bacteria while eliminating concerns about water being too hot at the tap.
