      Comments about Whole House Electric Tankless Water Heater:

      In 2008, our 36 unit complex converted to these units as part of a complete remodel.
      within a year they began failing, most from heating elements burning out (which the Bosch blames on our water quality, which is Atlanta city water). There have also been failures of the circuit boards. To date, we have had at least 12 of the 36 units fail. We have been able to reduce the failure rate by restricting the water flow and adjusting them to a lower temperature. The best thing that I have to say about these is that they save space and you do get hot water quickly and never run out. Wouldn't recommend due to failure rate. We continue to replace them as they are the largest electric unit available that we have the capacity to operate, and going back to a traditional setup would require extensive re-plumbing as well as a new closet to house it. IF YOU DO CHOSE TO PURCHASE THIS ITEM, I WOULD RECOMMEND CPO OUTLET AS THEIR PRICING AND CUSTOMER SERVICE IS EXCELLENT. ALSO, THE UNIT THAT IS NOW SHIPPING HAS A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT CIRCUIT BOARD THAN THE ORIGINALS AND SO FAR HAS NOT FAILED US.

      Comments about Whole House Electric Tankless Water Heater:

      This is a great product, but much too difficult to get plumbers and electricians to install. Most in my area won't do it. Those that will try to rip people off by charging outrageous fees. It is not complicated to install and takes just a few hours of labor. Fast service from CPO and great price -- much less than larger retailers.

          Comments about Whole House Electric Tankless Water Heater:

          Had to replace 50gal tank heater. We have two full bathrooms, kitchen and laundry. Only two at home most of the time, but frequent weekend houseguests up to 4 at a time.

          Chose the AE115, because the AE125 requires 3 40amp circuits--more than we could spare. This unit is proving more than adequate. It appears to be the highest flow rate for the amperage of any units we researched (more than I want to admit) We've run two showers at once for 15 minutes with hot water to spare. (Time is really not an issue if the supply is adequate.) We have the unit set at about 65% on the heat dial.

          In our farthest bathroom, it always took 60 seconds for hot water to reach the shower. The on-demand unit adds 30 seconds to reach full temperature. We think that is a trivial difference.

          The unit was simple to install. (I use Sharkbite fittings on copper pipe instead of solder joints.) The hardest part was replacing a single 30amp 240v breaker and 10awg wire with two 40 amp breakers and 8awg wire. If you're locating in the same place as the old tank, your electrician can use the old wire to pull the new one(s), and as that's the time consuming part of the job, it should not be expensive to have it installed by a professional.

          Regarding others' commnents on temperature fluctuation, please note: if the temp control is turned up too high, then you will find yourself mixing more cold water at the faucet to get a comfortable temperature. When you do that, you reduce the flow rate through the water heater to the point where the second element will cut in and out trying to maintain your setting. With only two elements to turn on and off, it will necessarily cause temperature fluctuation. Turn the control down so that the water that reaches the farthest bathroom is only slightly hotter than you can use without any cold mixed in, and the temperature will remain constant.

          We've only had this for a little over a month, so I can't speak to durability, but it is performing beyond our expectations, and a bargain at the price.
