In the January 2009 edition of Xactimate pricing software the E-TES electric thermal energy system was added as a line item.
E-TES is available in a 120V or 240V version. Xactimate does not distinguish a difference between the models. E-TES works on the principle of Directed Heat Drying. The key to rapid evaporation is to build a greater vapor pressure in the wet materials-structure than in the surrounding air; this is accomplished by increasing the energy (directed heat) in to the material. The greater the differential from the material to the air, the faster the evaporation will take place.
