This product will save you half the energy costs. Ecosmart makes electric tankless water heaters, and they are all very energy-saving. All products are labelled with numbers.
You can choose a higher-numbered Ecosmart product if you have a high GPM need. For example, Ecosmart Eco 24 has 5.85 GPM at a temperature of 77 degrees. Eco 27 has 6.59 GPM, and Eco 18 has 4.39 GPM. You can also choose the tankless option depending on your needs. There are two or three things that will change depending on whether you choose to increase the GPM, the maximum power of the amp to support it, and the size of the unit.

Ideal for medium to large homes
Despite being large, American homes have only 2-3 bathrooms. This is a great option if you live in a home that has two bathrooms. Cold weather can provide 2.41-2.83 GPM. This means a 1.5-2 GPM hand shower and a standard sink with 0.5 GPM. It can hold two showerheads, one sink and a washer at 52 degrees F. The 3.09 GPM supply will allow for three showerheads. The situation will get even better after 52 degrees F. At 57 degrees, the 3.42 GPM will support two separate showers and a basin. 3.81 GPM is a 2.25 GPM, which means two shower heads, a basin, and a dishwasher at 62 degrees F. Two showers, three water fixtures faucets, or a washing machine are available at 67 degrees F. Ecosmart ECO24 can support three bathrooms houses at 72-77 degrees F. It has 4.97 -5.85 GPM (three basins and three showers).
This calculation was based on the trend that the Standard Shower has 2 GPM, while the Water Saver showerhead has 1.5 GPM. The standard hand sink has 0.55 GPM, and the kitchen sinks have 1-2 GPM.
According to the manufacturer, it will save you 50% on your electricity costs. Traditional water heaters can use electricity even when they aren’t being used. Ecosmart’s self-modulating technology does not permit such waste. Ecosmart Eco 24 kW at 24-Volt Electric Tankless Water Heaters detects the flow of water. Based on that, the engine is powered to ignite the water and heat it according to the user’s requirements. You can save money by not using electricity when the engine is off.
It features a digital temperature control system that is beautifully designed. You can control the heat. The technology works by using a flow control valve combined with a thermostat to regulate the heat, even when the water flow changes. It also features a digital scale, just like other Ecosmart water heaters. You can adjust the heat increment by one degree. The digital scale is capable of heating water from 80degF to 140degF. You can now set the temperature throughout the bath without going through all the hassles of mixing water flow.
