User Feedbacks

The Eccotemp L10 2.6 GPM Tankless Water Heater can be installed in any place of your home. But it is also portable and you can take it anywhere in your suitcase. Different than any standard heater or bigger devices, it can still meet all hot water needs for the whole family.

Save money in the long term. Even if this Eccotemp model is more expensive in the purchasing process, its consumption needs are cheaper. The reason is that it only heats water when asked and not all the time heating a full tank of water. Houses with continuous water use should notice the difference in their utility bills. If you’re looking for a heater source that heats water on the spot for a limited time, you can use a timer to reduce the extra heat wasted from the device. The water tank of an electric heater is seldom subtracted so that the exterior of the tank warms up to a higher temperature than the environment, so the cost effectiveness of this tankless model is higher.

Water saving: Users living in remote places of a building don’t need to wait to have hot water delivered from the faucet.

Unlimited flow: If the amount of hot water delivered by a water heater depends on the flow level of the device, it can certainly provide an unlimited and continuous water intake. This might be not that eco-friendly, but water use with this water heater is not restricted.

Less space needed: This Eccotemp model can be installed indoors on a wall. That’s to say you don’t need so much space left for the water heater. Actually, any tankless water heater occupies less space than any tank water heater.

Less risk of leaking: Since it doesn’t have a tank to store water, there’s no risk of tank braking and less risk of water leaking.

Temperature stabilizers: It has a valve that lowers temperature to prevent the heater from overheating. Tank heaters temperature tends to go down while using continuously. This advanced tankless model releases pressure and reduces temperature with a bypass valve and a mix valve included in the device. This heater uses a compensation system that regulates the water flow it gets and delivers, in order to stabilize temperature. You can adjust temperature without changing the water flow. With a lower water flow, the water gets hotter. With a higher water flow, the temperature decreases. The flow valve, along with the thermistors, solves this problem keeping the temperature balanced during the whole use of the heater.

Safety: You can adjust the water temp accurately to reduce the risk of scalding. Another safety feature is the reduced presence of toxic metals that are usually seen in hot water and restricts the use of a water tank for a long period of time.
