How HUGO Works

How Do Uninterruptible Power Supplies Work

So, how do uninterruptible power supplies work differently than other products? When your city power is normal, HUGO passes the electricity directly to your tankless water heater.

When you have a power outage, the HUGO unit will direct and convert battery power to 110V pure since wave electricity to your tankless water heater within 12 milli-seconds. With our specially designed flow sensor installed, and when you are done using water and shut off all faucet, HUGO will terminate sending power to your tankless after 5 minutes in an effort to preserve the battery for prolonged actual hot water usage. With this setup, if your average hot water usage is one hour per day, the HUGO’s deep cycle battery should provide sufficient power for 5-7 days (depending on your particular tankless water heater’s running power consumption). Now, you will never have to worry about natural disaster caused power outages or your utility company doing maintenance or repair work.



 
IMPORTANT:  Many people don’t know there is a ceramic heater inside most tankless water heaters, it is to prevent the heat exchanger from freezing and causing leaks that may be costly to repair or replace.  But if you lose power to your tankless water heater, then this feature won’t work.  With HUGO installed, there is a temperature sensor built into the HUGO to work in the same method as the ceramic heater does.  When you lose power and if the outside temperature falls below 37 deg F, HUGO will send battery power to your tankless regardless of water demand.  This will ensure your tankless water heater has the power it needs to protect your expensive equipment or house. 

DISCLAIMER:  HUGO WILL NOT PREVENT FREEZES THAT OCCUR IN YOUR PLUMBING PIPES WHICH MAY CAUSE A RUPTURE ALONG YOUR PLUMBING LINE.  IF YOUR PIPES FREEZE AND RUPTURE, THE RUPTURE NORMALLY OCCURS AT THE POINT OF LEAST RESISTANCE, WHICH MANY TIMES IS AT THE BEND IN THE HEAT EXCHANGER OF YOUR TANKLESS WATER HEATER.  HUGO'S ONLY FUNCTION IS TO ENSURE THAT THERE IS POWER TO THE WATER HEATER.  CHECK WITH YOUR WATER HEATER MANUFACTURER ON FREEZE LIABILITY PROTECTION.  HUGO WILL NOT WARRANT ANY LIABILITIES OCCURRING FROM FREEZES.
