This product is for those who are looking for the most powerful electrical tankless water heater available, and are not concerned with paying a little bit more for that luxury. All electrical tankless will save money in terms of energy savings, but this unit uses more power than the competition. With that, the direct value isn’t as good as other units, but if it’s the most powerful you’re looking for, the is the best value heater.
By far the biggest miss here is the price, which can be up to twice as expensive as a similar, less powerful unit. We would like to see the price come down a bit, although it is rightly more expensive since it is more powerful than the median electric tankless market.
In addition, we would like to see innovation in the ability to install the unit for the average DIYer. Many units are quite easy to install, and this one seems to be overly complicated for no understandable reason.
This unit is ideal for someone with extra money to get the most powerful electrical tankless water heater available, otherwise we would recommend a more reasonably priced unit.Check the Price
