There is already a large regular water heater downstairs for the kitchen and downstairs bath. Would this work just for the upstairs?

Answer: 
This should be fine - emphasis on "should". Keep in mind that for a bathtub you do have the same issue as with a regular tank. That issue being that it takes a while to fill a tub. This unit produces between 1.6 to 2.4 GPM (depending on the temperature of the water coming into the unit). So by the time the tub has filled, the first gallon of water has had a while to cool down and so has every gallon Read More
This should be fine - emphasis on "should". Keep in mind that for a bathtub you do have the same issue as with a regular tank. That issue being that it takes a while to fill a tub. This unit produces between 1.6 to 2.4 GPM (depending on the temperature of the water coming into the unit). So by the time the tub has filled, the first gallon of water has had a while to cool down and so has every gallon respectively. If you make your way to our web site (which I can't publish here) you will find a chart for this unit and your geographic location as it relates to incoming water temps. With this knowledge and knowing how many gallons you typically put into your tub, you can determine if this will be adequate. Read Less

Answer: 
I would suspect a possible inflow restriction at the screen, or a failure of a single heating element, in a dual element system.

Answer: 
Hello Freax and thank you for your question.
You will be able to take a shower OR run the washing machine if you live in a warm climates with a high groundwater temperature.
For more power in warmer climates or for colder climates, consider using model AE-125, which is designed to replace a 40-gallon tank to provide endless hot water throughout your home. See more information about this model here: Read More

Rated 3.1 out of 5 by 31 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. March 8, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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! January 16, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 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.... Frank Rescigno November 25, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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... January 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AE115 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. August 21, 2010
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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! July 24, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. October 18, 2011
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Do not buy, it will be better to buy Rheem water heater The circuit board doesn't last more than 2 years. Two units in 3 years. No warranty. July 25, 2014
