Q:My home uses 120V. Can my home support this unit since it says 240V? Thank you!
A:While home outlets are mostly 120 volt, most home's main electrical panel actually have two hot connections, each one being separate 120v circuits from your utility in split phase. When you combine both hot connections in the panel using a double pole breaker and two live wires to the appliance, that is how you achieve 240 Volt connections. Any electrician should be able to look at your service panel and instantly tell you if you can support 240 volt connections.
A:No, a 240V unit cannot be plugged into a 120V outlet
A:No. You will need to hire an electrician to rewire your electrical outlets in order to accommodate this item.
Q:can I use the same plug in service that my 40 gal water heater uses
A:No, this model of tankless water heater requires a total of THREE separate 40 amp 240 volt connections. You must install three separate double pole 40 amp circuit breakers and you must install three separate sets of wiring using 8 gauge copper wire. This unit consumes a maximum of 112.5 amps on full power and should only be used on homes that have a service entrance of at least 200 amps.
