can this be installed in an unheated garage

Asked by: rick
I installed this in an un-heated metal building in North Texas where the temperatures in the winter were consistently 38°. I did not create an insulated closet for it, I only placed the unit on top of a plywood box I built to keep it off the floor. The unit is very well insulated and it did not appear to affect the performance of the hot water. My temp setting is on the highest setting. Indoor temps got to 32° a total of 6 days last year during a severe freeze and it still was a champ.

can this unit be installed on the hot water supply side inline with the water heater, so I'm not wasting water while waiting for the hot water from the water heater, will the hot water from the wtr htr hurt the unit?
Asked by: fred
It should work inline, for example under the kitchen sink so that you have instant hot water. The hot water from the larger heater would mix with the smaller unit and would not damage it.

Is this point of use only or can I use for whole house(small house)

Asked by: linda
We are a family of 5 and use this as our primary hot water heater for the kitchen and bathroom. We live in a small home as well in a very rural part of Texas. We have to effectively schedule showers and dish washing apart from each other. We take 3-4 minute showers. From a conservationist mentality and minimalist lifestyle, this water heater is fabulous. We just don't expect house guests to share our sentiment. ;-)

The time it takes the water to get to temperature is much longer than in the company specs, but does get to the temp setting. The fittings are 5/8th versus the typical 3/4 inch on hotwater heaters, this means you have to go with compression fittings, 1/2 inch copper, then sharkbite to PEX. LED 'on' light did not work when heater was installed, have to guess if heater is in an on cycle.

If exposed, it is very nice looking. Using it in the garage where I had access to water and sewer but no hot water. Worked out very nicely for my project. Has good storage and it wasn't necessary to have 220 volts. Works on 110 volts.
