Ace Copper Finned Water Heater, 47 years of continuous operation:
Barry Regimbal operates L&L Laundry in Lake Isabella, California. For 47 years his Ace Water Heater has operated with no problems – “I never did anything to it”, says his partner who initially purchased the unit back in 1960.
Wanting to upgrade, Barry insisted on another Ace Water Heater, despite pressure from others to go with newer “high efficiency” units. “In a laundromat, the cost of heating the hot water is insignificant compared to the cost of drying the clothes; I wanted the Ace unit because it operates without driving up other costs, like service costs,” Barry explained.
“Anyone who doesn’t believe me can contact me here, at L&L Laundry. I’d be happy to tell them about your water heaters, because it’s the truth!”
