    Default Tankless water heaters?

    Hey guys,

    I was just curious how many people made the switch to tankless water heaters, and how satisfied they were with them. Any noticeable savings on utilities?

    There's currently a $300 credit on them by the gas company here so I thought it might be a good idea to try it out in my home first (not big, 1800sqft). And after that installing one in a 4 unit multifamily.

    Thanks!

    A world where medical advances allow us to live forever is a terrifying thought...

    A friend of mine installed one at his house a few years ago, and is very happy. He said the biggest benefit to him and his family is contiuous instant hot water. I believe there is a noticeable savings as well.

    I'd like to do it on my next house. This house can suck it. One thing to watch out for is flow issues. If you have sporadic flow, very rare, you can get burned. We don't have those issues.

    On demand hot water is great. I had one in my condo as my roomate and I would go through a small tank no problem.

    Doesn't the geo spring depend on geographic location?

    Tankless hot water heaters are the way to go. We install lots of them in the houses we build. No matter what size your house is they can be used. 98% efficiency too. A nice option is to combine one of these with a solar hot water heater. This way the tankless is only used if your solar hot water isn't hot enough.
