Velis Evo water heater from Ariston
New for 2020, Ariston has added the Velis Evo and Velis Evo Wi-Fi to its growing range of electric storage water heaters.
The ultra slim twin tank design means up to 16% more hot water availability – and the units are available in 1.5kW and 3kW models with capacities of 45 and 80 litres.
Designed for use in residential apartments, studios, holiday homes and glamping pods, the water heaters offer rapid reheat times and are shower-ready in less than 30 minutes.
They are also perfect for replacing the traditional 100L hot water cylinder.
The flagship model in the range is the state-of-the-art Velis Evo Wi-Fi – the only electric water heater of its kind currently on the UK market with Wi-Fi controllability, thanks to the Aqua Ariston Net app. The app enables users to shuffle through modes and turn the unit on remotely for a hot shower at the perfect time – while offering energy savings of up to 25% using daily and weekly programming.
Shower-ready alerts are also displayed in the app, whereas Velis Evo units indicate this on a built-in touchscreen.
The Velis Evo range is further enhanced by Ariston’s ‘ECO EVO’ function – an electronic control with automatic learning software, which enables users to achieve energy savings of up to 14%; the equivalent to running an A+ rated fridge-freezer for approximately a year. The new products also achieve an ErP ‘B’ rating across the range, the best in-class of its kind.
The units also benefit from Ariston’s anti-legionella function. Once a month, the Velis Evo automatically increases the water temperature up to 65°C, in order to eliminate the risk of legionella bacteria developing.
Plus, they have Ariston’s ABS Safety System; this includes ‘Anti-Overheating’, ‘Anti-Freezing’ and ‘Dry Heating Self-Diagnosis’ functions, protecting products in the event of energy or water failures.
All units in Ariston’s Velis Evo range have an easy-to-configure, smart ‘blue tech’ touchscreen, and are supplied with an unvented kit, as well as a 5-year manufacturer’s warranty as standard.
