Description

The Eemax Mini Tank Electric Water Heaters allows you to instantly supply hot water for your sinks without having the cost of keeping a standard water heater at a constant temperature. These light-weight and compact tankless water heaters simply tap into the cold line and install directly at the sink, eliminating the need for costly recirculating lines and pumps. A point-of-use water heater is the perfect solution for a remote sink that needs hot water but is not served by a larger water heater. Since the tanks are installed directly near the sink, there is no need to waste water down the drain as you wait for the hot water to arrive. Ultimately, a mini tankless water heater saves water, money and is more energy efficient in the long run. Available in 2.5, 4 or 6 gallon capacity.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, water heating uses up to 25% of the energy in U.S. homes and is the second largest energy expense in households. The majority of these homes use a large storage tank water heater that slowly heats up and stores hot water for your shower, sink, kitchen and appliances such as the dishwasher. When this stored water is not being used, it loses heat and then has to be reheated to maintain a pre-set temperature. This constant cycle requires the tank to be full and use 24-hour energy consumption to keep the water heated. It only seems logical to turn off this hot water that is being stored when it is not needed. A compact tankless water heater has no storage tank and is activated only when there is a demand for hot water, thus reducing energy consumption and costs by up to 50%.

Features

  • Simply tap into the cold or hot water line and install the heater directly at the sink
  • Eliminates the wait for hot water to reach the tap

How it Works

Tankless water heaters allow you to heat up water for your fixture without the use of a storage tank. As a result, there are no longer standby heat losses that occur with standard storage water heaters. When the hot water tap is turned on, cold water travels through the pipe into the tankless unit and uses an electric element to deliver a constant supply of hot water. This sophisticated electrical sensor gathers the flow rate of the water and incoming water temperature. It then calculates the amount of power needed to heat the water at a certain temperature point. The water flows through the heating element and exits through the faucet, tap or pipe at a desired temperature. This entire process happens almost instantly. No more waiting for a storage tank to fill up with enough hot water

Summary

Here are some simple facts about the standard tank type water heaters that are present in the majority of homes: the tank, which can hold 20 to 80 gallons of water, cycles on and off all day long to keep the water hot. As a result, this wastes lots of energy and money even when it’s not in use. When hot water runs out, the tank has to refill before it is ready to supply hot water. Storage tanks are large and take up space, more expensive to operate, more likely to rust and leak and typically have a lifespan of 10-12 years.

A tankless electric water heater is a compact unit that provides hot water only when needed. The second the faucet or outlet is turned off, the heater is turned off (no need to have standby water). As a result, there is an increase in energy efficiency (10 to 20% greater as compared to storage tank heaters), a decrease in your energy bill and an unlimited supply of hot water. Mini tankless water heaters are perfect for office, summer cottages and apartment environments where there isn’t a sufficient storage tank to heat up water for the sinks. Each model is compact, lightweight and easy to install.
