What is a tankless water heater?
A tankless water heater has no storage tank and is activated only when there is a demand for hot water. A tank heater keeps the water hot 24 hours a day whether you use it or not. Tankless water heaters also provide unlimited hot water as there is no stored capacity to run out. Because there is no storage, the physical size of a tankless heater is much smaller allowing you to install the heater much closer to the application.Top of FAQ
What is the tankless advantage?
- Compact size – can be installed at point of use, saving space and providing hot water instantly.

- Saves money – only consumes energy when hot water is needed for up to 50% savings
- Endless hot water – never run out of hot water again.
How do I make sure I have the right Eemax tankless water heater for my application?
Keep in mind, a tankless water heater creates hot water based on how much power or kW you put into it. The volume of flow or how many fixtures you want to run at the same time will determine which heater is right for you. Eemax builds electric tankless water heaters that supply an unlimited supply of hot water for up to 3 showers and for your other household needs. The Sizing Guide will help you select the correct unit for your usage and climate zone. AnEemax customer service technician can also answer any questions you may have regarding sizing – call 800-543-6163.Top of FAQ
I Need Hot Water in a Daycare/Preschool location and Need to Limit the Temperature to Reduce Scalding Incidents….Can An Eemax Heater Help Me?
YES!! Tank-type hot water heaters need to be set at a high temperature to limit the growth of bacteria…..which would require the use of a thermostatic mixing valve at the point of use to lower the temperature to non-scalding levels. The Thermostatic line of Eemax tankless water heaters can be set to a ‘not-to-exceed’ high limit temperature and eliminate temperamental thermostatic mixing valves.Top of FAQ
Will I Save Money On My Electric Bill With an Eemax Water Heater?
In virtually all cases, YES! The greatest savings will occur when replacing an oversized electric tank ( 80 gallons ) in a home with minimal hot water demand. Think about your typical hot water usage: 10 to 12 minutes in the shower, a few minutes with the bathroom lav, washing the dishes or running the dishwasher after dinner…..and the occasional load of laundry on ‘hot’…..and you quickly see there isn’t a lot of hot water demand in a typical day. BUT – your hot water tank has to be ready – 24 hours a day – 7 days a week. All the energy spent on keeping the water in the tank hot is wasted energy. The Eemax heater only turns on when there is a hot water demand…and instantaneously heats water to meet that demand….and no more. When there is no hot water demand, there is no hot water expense!
In addition, no hot water tank means never running out of hot water again! When properly sized, the Eemax Tankless hot water heater makes all the hot water you need on demand.Top of FAQ
