Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mick51 Technology improvement makes a difference
Installed by professional electrician/plumber in a small pantry adjacent to our small galley kitchen. Replaced 35 gallon electric tank heater. Eliminates inconvenient radiant heat with supply of hot water now continuous. More space in pantry is most welcome with elimination of the conventional tank.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Franco04915 Not so good at all
I had the Ae115 for 3 years. This past Saturday Nov 23, 2013 the flow transducer ruptured and filled my condo. I called the company and they said they could not do anything. The inside of this product is plastic not like the other companies that have copper. I paid over 500 hundred dollars for this product and it lasted only 3 years. The tank that I replaced with this AE115 was over 20 years old. So all I can tell you buyer beware.... As you can see by the reviews on this page this is not a good product, so do some research and get something that is better....

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mongo Great product, I have had mine for 7 years trouble free!
As stated I have had 7 trouble free years, and when I called customer service I was able to walk through an issue with technical support who quickly and efficiently found that one of my two elements had failed. After a brief phone call I now have a new set of heating elements on the way covered by an excellent warranty... This unit covers my shower, bathroom, dishwasher, and kitchen needs flawlessly for two people, for the life of me I cannot understand a lower rating... Highly recommended, well supported product! I installed mine according to installation recommendations with 8AWG wiring on a 2 foot run fed by two 40amp breakers in a 200amp Square D panel, (also purchased at Home Depot), and found this unit freakishly reliable...

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JVB737 Do NOT waste your money!
I purchased TWO of these units! The first one ran fine for a whole month. A call to the manufacturer resulted in an 8 page trouble shooting guide. Of course, the cost of hiring a plumber/electrician was going to be on me, to accomplish this 3-4 hour trouble shooting. Since the area was already plumbed and wired for this unit, I ordered another one online through Home Depot - it fails to keep up with demand as well, alternating from hot to cold and back - from the moment it was installed. Yes, I bled the water lines of all air prior to applying power. The thing is just garbage!
I guess that there is a good reason why Home Depot no longer carries this unit in their stores! And, I live in FLORIDA! I do not need the unit to accomplish much, since my water supply is 70 degrees year round. Two units later, I am trying the American made Titan unit!
Bosch makes great tools but I would NEVER recommend this product! If I could have given ZERO STARS, I would have. $1100 poorer, but a lot wiser!

If your house has at least 125Amp @ 240, and there is space in your breaker box for 2 240v circuits and the heater isn't too far from the breaker box the rest is pretty easy. At 20# the installation can be performed by 1 person. It worked right off the bat. I thought it would hum like an electric chair was being used, but it is quiet.
I have electric solar panels on my roof, so now my hot water will be free. Replacing a tank gas heater, I should be more energy efficient and zero pollution. I have a small household and the amount of water is adequate.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by montag electric and space saving,endless hot water!
This is an amazing product. I purchased one in 2001.And had it replaced under warranty 9yrs. and 11 months later. the 2nd one only lasted 2 years but was replaced any way by the manufacturer. the space savings over the old tank style heater became a half bath! Very happy with amount of flow and NEVER runs out of hot water! All three units have been different but performed the same way. Paid for the cost of installation with electric bill savings!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HAWs No more water heater tanks for me
I have installed 3 of these tank-less electric water heaters and I'll never go back. They work great and save money. Just have a general knowledge of plumbing and electrical experience. Especially perfect for 2nd homes and vacation rentals. They use no power if no water goes through. One has been in service for 2 years and never a problem even when not used in several months. Directions could be a little more specific and "man friendly". In other words, show pictures in sequential steps.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DAVA Would Advised Against This One
I purchased this heater 14 months ago. Now out of warranty and one of the circuit boards burnt out. I contacted Bosch and the person was rude and could have cared less about my problem. I just wanted to replace the circuit board but he said they couldn't do that without seeing the unit first. Shipping it to them would not be cost effective. Plus the cost of the part was about the same as the unit. It was great while it lasted but I would expect it to last more than one year.
