You have the flexibility to select the fuel option that aligns perfectly with your preferences and needs. The Eccotemp SH22 series are offered in both liquid propane and natural gas configurations.
Natural gas is typically more affordable than electricity, making it a cost-effective choice for heating water. It also provides a quick and consistent hot water supply, suitable for larger households. You'll need access to a natural gas supply line, which may not be available in all areas. Installation costs might be slightly higher if a gas line needs to be extended to your water heater.
Propane is a versatile option, as it's often used in areas where natural gas isn't accessible. It provides an efficient and reliable source of energy for heating water. Propane tanks need regular refilling, which can incur additional costs. However, some homeowners appreciate the ability to have an independent fuel source.
SH22 Tankless Water Heaters are designed to fit every space and environment. Whether you prefer an indoor or outdoor installation, you have the flexibility to choose the setup that suits your needs. Don’t forget to look at our recommended installation location map to help you choose the product option best recommended for where you live based on ground water and outside temperatures.
In selecting the ideal water heater for purchase, our product selector serves as a helpful tool. It assists customers in identifying the most suitable water heater based on their specific location and requirements. By collecting information about where the customer lives and their hot water needs, the product selector offers personalized recommendations, ensuring that customers make informed decisions. This ensures that customers find a water heater that not only meets their needs but is also well-suited to their location, whether it's a large family home or a smaller living space in a specific climate.
Parts of the United States and Canada often experience freezing temperatures which can damage water heaters. One of the best recommendations is to install a freeze protection kit or device designed for water heaters to prevent freeze damage in such situations. These kits typically include a heat tape for your exposed plumbing and will automatically activate during freezing temperatures. During freezing temperatures, we always recommend dripping several faucets on the hot side to allow water to constantly flow through your plumbing to avoid damaging your tankless water heater and plumbing. Remember, freeze damage is not covered by any water heater warranty regardless of brand.
When purchasing an indoor tankless water heater one must consider the proper type of venting, which is essential for the safe and efficient operation of indoor tankless water heaters. The SH22i uses a 4-inch single wall stainless steel vent installation. This type of venting enhances safety by effectively channeling combustion gases, such as carbon monoxide, out of your living space, preventing potential health hazards. This type of venting also saves valuable indoor space, making it a practical choice for various settings. Eccotemp offers two variations for installing our SH22i, use our Horizontal or Vertical Vent Kits to ensure proper installation. Sold separately are our condensation drain pipes which must be used for areas where outdoor temperatures fluctuate during summer and winter months. When cold air is mixed with hot are produced from your tankless water heater it causes condensation which if no condensation drain pipe is installed will go back into your water heater causing rust, corrosion and even permanent damage.
Efficiency and Quality
The SH22 series is rated at 6.8 GPM (gallons per minute) at 140,000 BTU. With its remarkable minimum 35-degree temperature rise, this ultra-efficient tankless water heater guarantees instant hot water in various scenarios, all while prioritizing energy efficiency. Although instant hot water is produced at the water heater, the hot water must travel through your plumbing to reach the source being used. If you are as impatient as we are, you should know that we make POUs (point of use) mini tank water heaters that eliminate the wait time and gap for getting hot water instantly.
Safety and Certification
SH22 Tankless Water Heaters proudly carry CSA certification, affirming their quality and safety. These tankless water heaters have successfully passed CSA testing and received approval for use in both the United States and Canada at elevations up to 2,000 feet. Installing the SH22 at higher elevations can affect the overall performance and may not be recommended. This certification reflects our unwavering dedication to delivering reliable and safe water heating solutions. Furthermore, it aligns with the Department of Energy's commitment to promoting energy-efficient technologies and ensuring that our products meet the highest quality and safety standards.

Our tankless water heaters offer hassle-free installation with convenient features like easy wall mounting and compatibility with a 110/120-volt UL-listed power cord. Additionally, the ¾-inch NPT water and gas connections simplify the installation process further. Avoiding common installation mistakes, such as improper sizing, wrong vent material, and neglecting proper gas line size and water connections or electrical connections, is crucial to ensure optimal performance and safety of your water heater. Always follow the manufacturer's guidelines and consult a professional if needed to avoid these common pitfalls during installation. We also recommend installing a service valve kit for periodic descaling and damage preventative maintenance. These easily connect to our EZ-Flush System Descaling Kit.
When it comes to indoor venting for our tankless water heaters, we offer flexibility with 4-inch horizontal and vertical installation kits, which can be purchased separately. Proper venting is crucial for the safe and efficient operation of your water heater. The horizontal kit allows you to vent exhaust gases through a sidewall, ideal for spaces with limited vertical venting options. On the other hand, the vertical kit allows for venting through the roof, a suitable choice for multi-story buildings or instances where vertical venting is preferred. Choosing the appropriate vent kit ensures that combustion gases are safely expelled, contributing to the optimal performance and safety of your indoor tankless water heater.
Common mistakes in venting tankless water heaters, whether in horizontal or vertical installations, can lead to reduced efficiency and potential product damage. Condensation occurs when hot exhaust gases cool as they exit the vent, forming moisture. In horizontal installations, one common mistake is an improper vent slope, which can cause condensation to pool and drain back into your tankless water heater causing catastrophic product damage not covered by your manufacturer's warranty. This is why we always recommend the proper slope away from your tankless water heater and installing a condensation drain pipe.
Improper horizontal installation: No drain pipe, wrong venting materials (must be stainless steel), no backflow preventer
In vertical installations, overlooking proper venting installation will also lead to damage to your tankless water heater. A condensation drain pipe is always recommended for any tankless water heater installation where temperatures fluctuate. Also make sure with any installation you have a backflow preventor installed on your installation stopping cold air from blowing back into your water heater during freezing temperatures and windy days. Finally, with any tankless water heater, always have the proper sized drain pan located under your tankless water heater should it break, freeze or be damaged so that if a water leakage occurs it will not damage your home.
Improper vertical installation: No drain pipe, no backflow preventer, no downward slope to avoid condensation returning to the water heater.
Tips and Tricks
Take advantage of the smart controls via the Eccotemp Smart app and make full use of them. These controls enable you to adjust temperature settings, monitor energy usage, and schedule heating times, allowing for convenience and energy savings. Following the manufacturer's maintenance guidelines is also a big help. Flushing your tankless water heater periodically will prevent mineral buildup and should be done at least once per year. This could be less frequent or more often depending on your water source. If you have well water, we recommend descaling your tankless water heater at least two times per year. Our EZ-Flush System Descaler Kit is a perfect tool that is specifically made to dissolve the toughest build-up. Regular maintenance helps extend your tankless water heaters lifespan and maintain its efficiency.
Temperature Optimization - Optimize temperature settings for your tankless water heater by choosing your preferred temperature while avoiding extremely high settings to prevent scalding and conserve energy. During the summer, consider using the Eco Mode setting to reduce gas consumption and enhance efficiency. In our mobile app, you may also choose one of our pre-programmed suggestions for temperature based on your use.
As mentioned earlier, one of the best tricks that will make life easier is integrating your tankless water heater with Amazon Alexa or Google Home for voice-activated commands. Simply say, "Alexa, set my water heater to 110 degrees" or "Hey Google, turn off my water heater," for hands-free control and added convenience.
