Original review: Nov. 5, 2019

In 2016 I purchased an ECO Smart 18 that came with a lifetime warranty. This past weekend I noticed I had no hot water and found that a circuit breaker had kicked off. I checked the hot water heater only to find a fire hazard in the making as one heating element was sparking and leaking water. I contacted Ecosmart and said my warranty was "Inactive" so they denied any replacement or warranty whatever that means. My advice is to stay clear of all ECO Smart products (made in China) and find a reputable manufacturer that will honor their warranty.

The company asked me the buyer to do the troubleshooting. She then asked if I have hired an Electrician to fix my Water Heater. As if I am suppose to pay to fix the Faulty Device. Still refusing to fix or replace the Water Heater, and want to send parts for me to fix it. What Company does this? Horrible Product, and this is my second one that has gone bad and quit. Terrible Company to not stand behind their product. Please do not buy this product..

First one I purchased lasted a little over a year before it started leaking, customers service said it was due to lack of maintenance. Second one last a little over a year and started leaking but this time it started a fire inside the unit, burning the wires to a crisp. I'm waiting for the excuses from Ecosmart about this one. I have pictures to prove to them what happened.

The installation was a lovely and simple process. I did not do much of anything, just stood around in my robe while some strapping young men installed it for me. Afterward, I gave them lemonade. I do rather like the fact that it had "Eco" in the name. I attempt to live a fairly environmentally friendly lifestyle and this helps me feel like I'm adding to that goal. However, the water from this heater does not seem to get very hot. Perhaps that could be based on user error, but I have altered settings and it doesn't ever seem to get quite as toasty as I would like it to. Overall it has been a fairly decent experience. It has performed its job adequately, if not impressively, though that could be due to the capacity or possibly due to user error, as if I would ever admit that.

I had 2 great installers. They were on time, a bit early in fact, but called ahead to make sure their early arrival would be OK. Professional yet friendly, nice & courteous. The unit works very well. The only time I had a problem with it was when my basement flooded. The pilot went out, but I quickly discovered that it was surprisingly easy to relight if necessary. I specifically like the Lifetime Guarantee and customer service is fantastic and available 24/7. It is the best water heater I have ever had and I would recommend them highly.

When I purchased the water heater, the people who came in to install the water heater were very quick and the whole process was fast and easy. There were no delays and I felt that everyone went smoothly. Specific things that I like about the brand of the water heater is that the customer service is very quick and the warranty is able to be covered within two years. I really enjoy the fact that should we have a problem there is someone right there to give me tips on how to fix it and if there are any parts that I need to purchase.

I really enjoy the durability that this thing provides and the amount of water that it can warm up pretty quickly. The way that it doesn't break, we've already had it for a couple of years now and it is still working fine. My experience with my water heater has been great and I am absolutely in love with this heater because it provides warmth for the water to my family and myself and everything else.

The Ecosmart Water Heater has been reliable, durable, environment-friendly, and not as expensive as others. It works great especially in the winter and we don't have to worry about water heating in our house. We have no issues with it even though it has been with us for more than 4 years. Customer service has been friendly and very helpful when we called to follow up about some things after we bought the heater.

The new water heater is great. Better pressure and it is just all around a better buy than the old one I had since it was the old one was leaking and my water prices have got a lot cheaper. I pick this brand of water softener because it seemed to be the most economy friendly and help save on water bills even though it was a little bit higher because it was going to pay off in the long run. The plumber was great and is reasonably priced to have it installed. A man explain how to use the heater and what's up to watch for just in case something were to go wrong.

So far it has exceeded our expectations and are very please with our Ecosmart water heater. We bought it out right from a local store and my husband is a maintenance worker so he is very aware of how things work and installed it himself with no issues at all. We really like our water heater because thus far had any issues with it. It heats up our water quickly and 4 people can take a shower close to one another without the water turning cold on one of us. It has worked great so far for us and we are hoping it will last us many years to come.

Ecosmart Water Heater expert review by ConsumerAffairs

EcoSmart provides tankless water heaters for homes and businesses that can save consumers up to 50 percent on their water heating bill. They also offer pool and spa heaters as well as radiant heating units which heat your home from the ground up.

  • Types: EcoSmart provides eight models of electric, tankless water heaters. The model consumers choose will depend on their climate, home size and how many people live at the residence. Each unit is equipped with a self-modulating technology which can adjust energy output based on hot water needs.

  • Applications: EcoSmart’s tankless water heaters can be applied four ways: point-of-use, whole house, water heater booster or solar extender/backup. Point-of-use is used for isolated hot water use. The whole-house option provides hot water to an entire home. The water heater booster can be installed next to a tank system to extend the capacity of the tank. The solar extender ensures a tank will never run out of hot water.

  • Radiant heating: Radiant heating is an alternative, cost-effective way to provide heat to a home. Rather than using forced air through ducts, radiant heating heats from the ground up using hot water. EcoSmart has six units that can provide hot water for radiant heating and they are compatible with hardwood, carpet, vinyl and tile flooring.

  • Business solutions: EcoSmart’s tankless units ensure instant and consistent hot water for businesses such as restaurants and large developments like apartments, malls or retail tenants. Consumers can find a toll-free number online that will connect them with a representative to discuss their business’ water heating needs.

  • Self-modulating technology: Most tankless systems operate by a flow switch that activates around one gallon per minute (GPM). EcoSmart patented a self-modulating control that activates at 0.25 GPM. This flow sensor regulates energy use to meet hot water demand during each use. Units with this technology come with a digital display showing consumers the outlet water temperature and allowing for temperature adjustment.

  • Best for: Consumers looking for a tankless water heater.
