Eccotemp created the i12-LP with top-of-class design. It's unique among tankless water heaters on the market today. The exterior case is made of black Gorilla Glass.

This bundle with vent kit makes it quick and easy to get hot water for vacation cabins, cottages and homes with a few simultaneous points of use. Calculate the flow rate and temp rise to be sure it will work for you.
The i12-LP digital display control functions and the internal exhaust fan are powered by the 120 volt UL listed power cord, using only 2 watts while in idle/standby mode, and 1.07 Amps during operation. This makes it a super energy efficient appliance.

Frequently Asked Questions ("FAQ")
Q1: Is the heated output water potable (drinkable)?
A1: Yes! Eccotemp has tested the heated output water as acceptable according to water safety standards.
Q2: What is the maximum recommended altitude?
A2: Customers have reported good operation at 6500 feet. The manual states, "Ratings of gas appliances are based on sea level operation and need not be changed for installations at elevations up to 2,000 feet. Unit not recommended for elevations in excess of 2,000 feet.". As altitude increases, gas appliances normally have a fuel efficiency loss (derating), and the fuel-to-air ratio changes with less oxygen in the air.
