Additional Information
The Excel Vent-Free Tankless Propane Water Heater saves energy and water while instantly delivering infinite hot water upon opening the tap, no matter the water pressure!

All other tankless gas water heaters rely on outdated rubber diaphragm technology to start the units and need pressures higher than 20 PSI to operate. The Excel Tankless Propane water heater is equipped with a magnetic flow sensor that allows the unit to start up at only 2 psi water pressure. Plus, it works at up to 120 psi. Ideal for small apartments, hunting or fishing cabins, small homes, boats, campers, RVs and mobile homes.

Vent-Free for Indoor or Outdoor Use. An Excel Vent-Free Water Heater can be installed indoors without cumbersome, costly flue and ductwork because it’s equipped with a state-of-the-art ODS (Oxygen Depletion Safety) shutoff device. With remarkable electronic technology that requires no standing pilot light, the Excel heater saves up to 25% in gas consumption when compared to older technology pilot light units. In case of a power outage, you can still enjoy hot water at home because it uses two (2) size “D” batteries to ignite the electronic spark module.

Pure Oxygen Free Copper Heat Exchanger. Heat exchangers are devices that transfer heat to achieve desired heating or cooling. The Excel heat exchanger features Pure Oxygen Free Copper to conduct and transfer heat fast and efficiently. Pure Oxygen Free Copper has many desirable properties for durable, thermally efficient heat exchangers. Other tankless gas water heaters have regular copper heat exchangers with a tin bath. They are less efficient and have a short life. Pure copper heat exchangers are customarily used only by top-of-the-line tankless gas water heater manufacturers.

Features:

Lower Gas Consumption. Indoor or Outdoor Use. Compact and Lightweight. Infinite Hot Water

    Excel Vent-Free Tankless Propane Water Heater, Low Pressure Startup, 1.6GPM is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great inexpensive hot water heater for cabin We have a seasonal cabin "Up North" and need occasional hot water for doing dishes, taking a shower etc. Tank heaters take too long to heat so we took a chance on this model. Easy to install and fired right up!Easily enough hot water for taking a shower, doing dishes etc. Water temp dial is set right in the middle and heats great! Our well water is pretty cold, so I was surprised it was able to heat the water without cranking it up. Just make sure to drain both the inlet and outlet when closing cabin for the winter. I think I'd take batteries out too, though, if your cabin sits idle for four or five months during the winter like ours does. You won't be disappointed!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not sure about it I first had issues with just luke warm water, called mfg. they said too much water going through and cant't warm it so we put a reducer on, now it gets hot but when you turn on the cold water the unit turns off , then we have to turn all the water off turn on hot water then slowly turn on cold water and the unit still turns off not sure what to do but it sure makes taking a shower a pain, right now until this gets figured out I would not recommed this

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best upgrades to my RV I’m a full time boondocking RVer. Water and propane conservation are important to me. I purchased this water heater from Excel America. I haven’t had this vent free unit for very long, and can’t speak for its longevity, but this baby does the job for me in this 22 foot trailer of mine. I have it installed in the bathroom next to the shower. I was able to cover a lot of the hot water CPVC pipes, throughout the my rig, with insulation, but was unable to insulate the CPVC under the tub, which extends the length of my tub, about 4 feet so, It’s about 12 feet from the from unit to the showerhead. This thing is steaming by the time it comes out of the showerhead. I use a cheap 1.5 GPM shower head that I picked up at Wal-Mart, and I’m not sure if this helps to throttle it back a little more than the knob allows me to or not. This might be restricting the flow even further. Because the unit is putting out hotter water than I can stand, and I like my showers hot, I have to turn down the gas to dial in a good temperature. I only us the hot water knob, and I turn it all the way on. I think if you only have it trickling out it might melt the CPVC pipe that’s closest to the unit. I have installed a water spigot close to the unit, at a good height for a 5 gal bucket, and I turn it on all the way for the same reason. Make sure that you install the adequate gas line. I first purchased the thinner gas line thinking that it would be adequate, but upon reading the manual I saw that the BTU’s were more than I’d anticipated. I ended up back at the hardware store to get the right one. I had bought a flex line for the hot side, as I’d done for the cold, but after reading the warning on the tag to the flex hose it said that it was not to be used for an on demand hot water unit. I ended up connecting the hot side directly to the CPVC. The temperature’s here have been in the 40’s at night, and in the 60’s during the day. My water tank is inside, but I don’t know how worm the water truly is before it reaches the unit. I installed a water filter after the pump. I think this is a good idea for odd reasons. I had one issue with the unit that required the assistance of a representative. The lady that worked with me through it was professional and courteous. Never have I been treated with the respect that I felt I deserve as a consumer until now.

    At what ambient water temperatures are these effective?

    Asked by: pee wee
    This tankless water heater is recommended for areas with ambient water temperatures above 50°F, but can be used in areas with incoming water temperatures down to 40°F by reducing the water flowrate via control knob.
