These water heaters are the most powerful Smart Technology electric tankless units in the market today. They are engineered for both cold climates, with incoming water temp that may drop below 45°F, and warm climates. They are ideal for homes both in the northern US and Canada, and Southern US homes, and homes that have generally more demanding water usage requirements. This water heater will work with large Roman-style or Jacuzzi tubs.

How to choose your water heater model

Step 1: Add up the flow rates of all the water use points that you expect to simultaneously use. It does not matter whether your home has 2 showers, 4 sinks, a dishwasher and a clothes washer. What only matters is which of them you expect to run at the same time. See Chart A.

Step 2: Determine your coldest incoming water temperature of the year.

Step 3. Take your info from Step 1 and 2 and look up the info on Chart B.

Step 4: Ensure you have sufficient electrical service. See "Electrical Requirements" chart below.

 

Chart A

Flow rate guidelines for various hot water applications.

This chart is based on the use of water-saver showerheads rated at 1.5 GPM and water-saver aerators for sinks rated at 1.0 GPM. The number of showerheads and sinks next to each model reflects the model unit's capacity to make hot water simultaneously with the unit's temperature control set to 105°F. Note: The shower temperature that most people prefer is between 98°F to 105°F.

Electrical Requirements

Before you purchase an EcoSmart, please make sure that your home has sufficient electrical capacity to run it. Refer to the following chart for electrical requirements:

Wire gauge and breaker size must meet all applicable provincial, state, local, and national electrical codes for your area. These are only guidelines that may apply to most installations. Some codes require use of an electrical sub-panel, especially when heater isn't mounted within the line-of-sight of the main electrical panel. Wiring should be sized to maintain a voltage drop of less than 3% under load.

If your home is already equipped with a large number of electrical appliances, you may require a larger electrical service than the one recommended above. The above chart contains only guidelines. Please consult with an electrician before placing an order.

How the temperature dial and display work

When water is flowing through this tankless heater, the digital display on the front of the unit shows the water heating temperature that you have set using the dial. To set the temperature, start by turning on any water faucet. The digital display will light up and give you the current temperature setting of the unit. To increase this setting, turn the control knob to "Increase" or "Decrease" your temperature setting. You can set the temperature at any level between 80°F (27°C) and 140°F (60°C). To change the digital display from Fahrenheit to Celsius, simply press the control knob for 3 seconds. Most people feel comfortable showering or bathing at a temperature between 98°F and 105°F (37°C to 41°C). We recommend that you set the output water temperature of your water heater between 105°F or 110°F (approximately 41°C or 43°C). This will ensure you have adequate hot water to meet all of your household needs while also maximizing your available water flow rate, reducing the risk of scalding to children and the elderly, and increasing the energy savings you achieve.

This product is designed for indoor installation. Installation outdoors is acceptable only if mounted an enclosure that protects it from dust, debris, rain, splashed water, insects, and direct sunlight. It must not be installed where it may be exposed to freezing temperatures. If any moisture is inside it when it freezes, the warranty is void.

Save space. Look at how much space you save with our on-demand hot water heater compared to a water heater tank.

 Ecosmart Eco 24/27 Electric Tankless Hot Water Heater

What savings do you get with ECOSMART's Tankless Water Heater?

The primary difference between savings associated with storage tank heaters compared to tankless heaters is the amount of energy and time consumed during operation. An electric tankless water heater consumes more energy compared to a tank heater during its use, but it consumes energy for a drastically shorter period of time. The result is a reduction in water heating costs by up to 60%.

The image below contains a visual representation of the concept mentioned above using data taken from independent third party testers. It shows how the storage tank heater keeps drawing power even after the need for hot water has long ceased. In this example, the tank heater used energy for 34.5 minutes just for a 10-minute shower. It also used a total of 2.5 kWh, in comparison to the ECO 27 which consumed just 1.6 kWh. The steadiness in the data represented about the ECO 27 is also an accurate indication of how precise the Self-Modulating Technology is, allowing for very minimal differences in energy consumption.

 Ecosmart Eco 24/27 Electric Tankless Hot Water Heater

PSC (Product Safety Consulting, Inc.) is a product testing firm recognized internationally and accredited by several reputable organizations. PSC administered numerous tests that simulate daily hot water usage and then compared the energy consumption results between an ECO 27, the largest model available from ECOSMART, and a 40 gallon water heater from Rheem. Based on an average ten-minute shower consuming two gallons per minute, a 37% savings in energy consumption was confirmed with the ECO 27.  This figure is based on usage comparison and does not take into account energy loss associated with Cycling Loss and Standby-by Loss which may be accountable for up to 20% energy loss. This loss included, the ECO 27 uses up to 57% less energy compared to a standard electric storage tank water heater.
