- Reduces energy consumption
- Does not require fossil fuels
An Eemax whole house tankless hot water heater can be a great solution to your residential water and energy saving needs. These on demand hot water heaters create clean, hot water instantly for showers, sinks, dishwashers and kithens, rather than storing in a large tank. Each of the three models we offer are easy to install and can handle multiple fixtures throughout a residential or commercial area. Hot water is delivered efficiently and quickly because of the power control system that samples input and output temperatures, flow rates and power when in use. A state of the art, durable tankless water heater will quickly pay for itself over time and supply ample benefits for your wallet, home, environment and well-being. The Two Series model features twin thermostats cold/hot water feeds (staged) and is ideal for several outlets. We offer three different models to fit your household electrical requirements with also the option of a manual or digital thermostat readout option.
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%.

The Eemax Series Two heater is specifically designed to take in cold water and heat it to temperatures suitable for normal domestic usage up to a maximum of 140°F (60°C). To obtain optimum performance and energy savings, the unit should be located as near as possible to the point of use. The Series Two heater must have two dedicated independent circuits, using correctly rated wires and circuit breakers. This unit should be mounted as close to the point of use as possible. For example, directly beneath the sink is ideal. Do not install the heater above a faucet or “point of use” because the siphoning effect may drain the heater which can cause premature element burn out. Leave a minimum of 8” above the unit for easy replacement of the heating element if needed.
IMPORTANT: Before switching “on” the power at the breaker make sure that the hot water circuit is free of air pockets or premature failure of the heating element will occur. To do this open all hot water faucets one at a time for a minute or two until the water flow is continuous and free from “gulping” or visible air pockets. For example, this procedure should always be completed before use if you the water had to be turn off temporarily for safety purposes (during a water main break) or if voluntarily turned off (while away for long periods of time).
How it Works
In general, the key to selecting the proper model is to understand the flow rates of your fixtures, the temperature of incoming water, electric service provided and applications (for example, how many faucets and appliances you wish to use at the same time).
- Applications: - determine where exactly you want hot water throughout the home, office or area. For example, one bathroom or kitchen sink (single point model), a shower and sink, multiple kitchen sinks (multi-point/phase model) or an entire home, apartment or condo (whole house model). You can also install one heater for different zones throughout your home in order to heat the water.
- Flow rates - it is helpful to measure and know the flow rates at your faucet, showerhead and other outlets to get a better estimate of your flow rate needs. A maximum flow rate of 3 GPM is generally sufficient for standard bathroom/kitchen faucet or showerhead applications.
It is important to get the best estimate since tankless water heaters will generate a temperature rise based on the flow rate demanded.
- Incoming water temperature - it is important to factor in your ambient incoming water temperature based on where you live. For example, there may be a difference on how much temperature rise you will need in order to receive the desired temperature of your hot water in colder climates as compared to warmer areas down south.
- Electrical Service - Simply inspecting the main breaker in your electrical panel can help determine how many amps of electrical service your home provides. Our single phase tankless electric water heaters generally require 240 – 277 volts and 20 – 40 amps (depending on model).

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. Furthermore, each tank has a life expectancy of about 20 years (with no chance of a tank breaking down and then flooding the basement). Overall, if you choose the correct model and size for the application(s) you want, in the end a tankless hot water heater will save energy and money.
