Are you looking for an electric water heater that can provide hot water fast, reliable, and an endless supply, yet it is small and look nice? The manufacturer of EcoSmart electric water heaters might have a solution for you.
Either you are looking to buy an electric water heater for an apartment, cottage, office, or house to supply hot water to one or multiple fixtures on demand, the EcoSmart offers various whole-house and point-of-use (POU) tankless water heaters.
The EcoSmart also offers models used as the water tank booster for instant hot water delivery, solar backup, and for radiant and pool heating.
|Model||ECO 8||ECO 11||ECO 18||ECO24||ECO 27||ECO 36|
|# of fixtures*||1-2||1-2||2-4||3-5||3-5||up to 6|
The above water flow shows two values, calculated with the incoming water temperatures of 40 F and 80 F.
* the number of baths where one unit can be used depends on the incoming water temperature or the region where the unit is installed.
Due to its tank-less design, EcoSmart electric water heaters can be installed easier and faster than tank-type units.
The lightweight and small size of up to 17" x 21 x 3 3/4" allows simple wall mount, so the floor space in one household is not occupied, which is great for homes that lack in the living area.
All the models can be installed indoors, under the sink, in the cabinet, or above the water fixture - so hot water can be supplied at the point of use, quickly with the reduced heat loss. The outdoor installation is also possible, but only in the protective enclosure.
One of the main features built in the EcoSmart electric water heaters is the patented Self Modulating Technology. This technology uses the water flow and temperature sensors combined with the unit's computer, so models do not operate ON/OFF, but modulation.
If there is no need for the full power, the computer control system will reduce the power to the heating elements, so water is heated to the set temperature with the maximum efficiency of close to 100%, saving energy and reducing energy bills.
The control panel allows users to control the outlet water temperature ranging from 80 F to 140 F in 1-degree increments. You can see the temperature on the screen above the control knob.
For the proper operation and safety of the user, EcoSmart electric water heaters are equipped with protection against high temperatures utilizing an auto-reset thermostat switch and unit's electric board.
The number of heating elements varies and it depends on the model. It goes from one element for the ECO 8 model to four heating elements for the largest ECO 36 unit, operating on 240V and single phase.
Other differences include the position of the inlet and outlet water connections located left and right of the ECO 8 and ECO 11 models, and at the bottom of other models. These two, designed as the smallest whole-house models, also include the stainless steel heat exchangers (POU models), while others have a copper type HE.
|Model||ECO POU 3.5||ECO POU 6|
|kW per element||3.5||5.5|
|Max Amps draw||29||25|
|# of fixtures*||0.5-1||1-2|
The above water flow shows two values, calculated with the incoming water temperatures of 37 F and 77 F.
* the number of fixtures where one unit can be used depends on the incoming water temperature or the region where the unit is installed.
EcoSmart electric water heaters for the whole house heating come with a limited lifetime warranty, while POU models have one year warranty.
