Are you living in a two-bathroom house? Do you want to take a shower while your spouse is taking a bath and the washing machine is working? It is possible to do it all simultaneously with Marey ECO180 electric tankless water heater! This whole house electric water heater is almost a dream. Let’s have a closer look at all its features.
Energy Savings & Performance
Marey ECO180 is at the top of its performance in the southern parts of the country, where the weather is warmer. In such a climate, since the inlet water temperature is warmer, it can very well supply hot water for up to three fixtures, two of them being 2.0 GPM showers, at once! It can provide 36°F increase at 4.0 GPM. In colder climates, it is still enough for one shower and one sink running at the same time. It can reach up to 80°F at 1.5 GPM, under these circumstances.
Marey ECO180 utilizes SMART technology. SMART is a technology specially developed to maximize energy efficiency. Simple adjustments on an LCD panel allows you to easily program the unit to the exact desired temperature and thereby optimizes the electricity consumption. It has an average thermal efficiency of 98% which means that your electric bills will be reduced significantly.
One outstanding feature of Marey ECO180 comes into the picture in case of hard water. This unit never accumulates sediments because the water passing through actually never touches the heating element! It is the only product on the market with a patented corrosion-resistant heating element which reduces the build-up of chlorine and calcium. Therefore, if you are living in a region where water hardness levels are high, this can be a perfect fit for you.
Design & Installation
Marey ECO180 is 11 x 3.5 x 16.1 inches and 18 pounds. When considered as a whole house water heater, it is actually quite compact and light. Maybe you cannot fit it under a sink but you can easily hide it into a cabinet. Also, the unit looks nice enough to be displayed on your wall; you do not need to hide it away. The only important point is that it should not be installed more than 40 feet away from the intended point of use if you want it to work efficiently.
Furthermore, it is highly recommended that Marey ECO180 is installed by a professional since its electrical requirements are better handled by a licensed electrician. Before installation please note that you will need two 50 amp breakers.
Marey ECO180 comes with 5-years warranty. Apart from its extended warranty period, the company also boasts about its excellent post-sales service. We do not believe that you will not experience major problems with your unit since it is quite sturdy with its non-corrosive heating element which prevents sediment buildup. However, in case you do or if you have any questions, a post-sales service might become very handy.
