EcoSmart makes tankless water heaters for point-of-use and whole house applications. EcoSmart is part of Eemax, which is owned by Rheem. Rheem is a subsidiary of The Paloma Group, which is headquartered in Nagoya, Japan. The Paloma Group reports annual income of approximately $3.0 billion.
EcoSmart was founded in 2008. The company was purchased in 2013 by Eemax, a water heater company founded in 1988 and purchased in 2008 by The Riverside Company, a private equity firm. In 2015 Rheem acquired Eemax from The Riverside Company.
EcoSmart’s line tankless water heaters includes two point-of-use models – POU 3.5 and POU 6 – and six electric models ranging from the ECO 8, designed for a small single-bathroom apartment in a warm climate, to the ECO 36, designed to handle multiple applications simultaneously in a large single-family home.
The company also produces four models of the ECO MINI, which plugs into a standard 110 volt outlet and taps into the water line. The ECO MINI is designed for point-of-use or as a booster heater to remote locations.
