With the most advanced technology in water heating, our tankless water heaters can save you up to 50 percent on water heating costs. Select models are assembled with our very own patented self-modulating technology so they regulate exactly how much energy is needed to heat the amount of hot water needed. Not only do our top of the line tankless water heaters save you money, they are also compact and wall-mounted so you save valuable storage space for a new closet! To top it off our models are the only electric tankless water heaters with a lifetime warranty on the market.
Electric Tankless Water Heater
The ECO 27 is one of the largest electric tankless water heaters available with our patented self modulating technology. This unit is ideal for the northern United States, where incoming water temperatures can reach as low as 37°F. The ECO 27 is capable of heating nearly 3 gallons per minute at this low temperature. It can handle up to two showers running at the same time and never run out of hot water. For homes in the southern United States, the ECO 27 is perfect for a high demand of hot water between multiple applications. It can handle up to 6 gallons per minute, which means you can run four showers and a sink simultaneously and never run out of hot water. A digital temperature control allows you to set your temperature in increments of 1 degree, so you can set the temperature anywhere from 80°F - 140°F.
- Endless hot water
- Save up to 50% in water heating costs
- Compact design, more storage space
- Digital temperature control
- Limited lifetime warranty
- Eassily replaceable elements
- The most advanced self modulating technology available, meaning the ECO 27 will adjust how much energy needs to be input based on how much hot water is needed
Endless Hot Water
When sized correctly your tankless water heater will provide you with endless on demand hot water. It heats water as it passes thru the unit, instead of storing hot water like a tank type water heater.
Save Money, Save Space, Save Energy
Save Money - EcoSmart tankless water heaters only turn on when you need hot water - plus they cut down on heat loss, saving you up to 50% in water heating costs.
Save Space - Traditional tank heaters take up a lot of space. But EcoSmart's sleek, wall-mounted design frees up floor space for more storage.
Save Energy - EcoSmart features the most advanced self-modulating technology, only using the amount of energy needed.
Determining your average inlet water temperature is important, this allows you to determine how well your unit will perform in your desired location.
Next you will determine how many applications your unit can run simultaneously at your chosen location inlet water temperature.
Determining specs and electrical infrastructure is important because without the correct infrastructure your unit may not fit onto your breaker panel.

ECO 11 Electric Tankless Water Heater
The ECO 11 is designed to heat up to 2 gallons per minute and is optimal for weather of 67° F and above. It can be used for multiple or single applications depending on your climate. In warm climates, the ECO 11 can handle two sinks running simultaneously and one shower, or two sinks simultaneously in colder climates.
ECO 18 Electric Tankless Water Heater
The ECO 18 is the mid-range model that can heat over 2.5 gallons per minute. So it can handle a shower and a sink simultaneously in climates of 37°F and above. In warmer climates, it can handle two showers and two sinks at the same time.

I have two of these units, one for DHW (Domestic Hot Water) and the other to operate our whole house hot water baseboard system. Some information is hard to find, and other information is a closely guarded secret and cannot be obtained anywhere online. I'll focus on these areas.
The unit is rated at 27KW at 240 volts. Internally, it is three separate 9KW heaters, operating in series and in sequence based on demand. The unit is truly self-modulating and will not provide more heat than the load requires.
Each individual heater requires a dedicated 240 circuit, rated at 40 amps, and provided via #8 wire. For the Ohm's law fanatics, each unit draws 37.5 amps under full load, for a total system load of 112.5 amps. Anybody that tries to operate this unit off of a 100 amp main breaker deserves what he gets. We have ours connected to our main 150 service, and can get away with it because everything else in the house is "green" and we can operate everything else with the 37.5 amps available if the heater is running under full load.
I'll say this again: Each internal unit requires a separate, dedicated 240 volt 40 amp circuit, equalling a total of three separate #8 wire 240 volt circuits. I hope I made that plain enough.
The heat exchangers inside the heater are 3 copper pipes, cross connected in series with about 1/2" dia. copper sections. So there is a flow restriction, but nothing as radical as some of the reviews would have us believe.Read more ›
Tearing out the old tank heater was easy and only took about a half hour. Mounting the EcoSmart unit in the same place as the old heater and creating the new plumbing connections with copper pipe took about 4 hours. Although 240-volt wiring was left over from the old heater, the 12-gauge wire was too thin, and there was only one 30-amp circuit available. The EcoSmart unit I bought needs three 40-amp circuits and 8-gauge wire. My breaker box is located about 30 feet away from the water heater location, so I had to string 3 lengths of 8-gauge, 2-conductor wire up into the ceiling and across to the breaker box. This took a full day, and crawling around in the space above the ceiling killed my knees. My electrical service is 200 amps, so I only had to find 3 double-wide slots for the new circuit breakers (one slot where the old water heater connected, and two new slots). Shuffling a few breakers around gained me the last 3 available slots. Hooking up the EcoSmart unit was simple, and the instructions are very clear. The biggest hassle was routing the heavy 8-gauge wire into the breaker box. Doing the electrical hookup took about 3 hours. After verifying that nothing leaked and all the voltages were right, I turned on a hot water tap and prepared for the worst. And Voila! Hot water. Lots of hot water.Read more ›
