Electronic Controllers

Vaughn has been designing and programming streamlined and sophisticated energy controllers in conjunction with electric utility thermal storage programs for over 30 years, satisfying the utility's need for peak control while also offering a great deal of flexibility for the end user. Programs for the EC are determined by the electric utility. Once programmed, the EC automatically controls the water heater, saving energy without any worry or inconvenience to the homeowner. If for some reason the homeowner wishes to override the system, an override may be accomplished with the simple push of a button. Vaughn's gateway neutral, high performance control devices can accomodate any number of programs to suit nearly any application.

Timers/Energy Controllers Specific Questions

General Questions

Are Vaughn heaters made in the USA?

Yes. Vaughn water heaters are all made in the USA and our factories located in Connecticut and Massachusetts and qualify for incentives under The Buy American Act and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). For more information go to the following link Here.

Where can I purchase a Vaughn water heater?

There are numerous ways to purchase a Vaughn water heater depending upon the model you desire and your geographic location. The easiest way is either to visit our "Where to Buy" option in the red menu bar across the website, or contact Vaughn directly at 978-462-6683 and ask for the sales department where you will be directed to either our local representative or our order entry department for quick and easy ordering.

What code requirements are applicable for my installation?

The installation of water heaters are mostly governed by the Uniform Plumbing Code (or CPC in California), Uniform Mechanical Code, and National Electrical Code. These are standard codes that are used across the United States, and each state can amend them as they wish. To take it further, each city and county jurisdiction has assigned one or more building officials with what is called Administrative Authority. This Authority" allows each jurisdiction the right to interpret the codes as they see fit. Because of this many cities differ on their requirements. Vaughn strongly recommends that you contract with a plumbing engineer who knows and understands the intricacies of the building code requirements for your location.

Is it OK if my plumbing system has plastic pipes (PVC or PEX)?

Yes. All Vaughn water heaters will work with both types of plastic piping.

My question is not found in these FAQ’s, where do I look next?
