Who has a tankless hot water heater?

I'm in the market for one and wanted to solicit opinions from who has them and what models they have?

My contractor is going to purchase one and I've read reviews, but wanted some first-hand info from people on here.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I was thinking of getting one last month, but the plumber talked me out of it. I was completely sold on the idea before that. He told me that most people he knew of who had them weren't satisfied with the amount of hot water they were getting. I wasn't going to take a chance on a couple thousand dollars, but maybe you'll get different advice.

Good point. I've been debating. I might just get a real good tanked one and call it a day. The process has already been pretty difficult.

This.

Consumer Reports has said the lack of consistent available hot water is a common issue that owners complain about. Also they need yearly maintenance (usually done by a plumber) to keep them in good working order. Cleaning scale deposits, etc.

Isn't the whole point of these that you don't ever run out of hot water? How does an on-demand water heater run out of hot water? Or, is it just not working as advertised?

Not heating the water adequately on demand, I guess is more what the guy was telling me. To be fair, I told the guy that there are times when there are as many as 6 people living in my house, so what he's projecting as my demand for hot water at any given time may have factored into what he was telling me. I just couldn't see spending 4-5 times what a tank heater costs with any chance of not being completely satisfied with it.

I'll take my cheaper gas water heater over an electric. I don't take 30 min showers anyways.

The biggest variable is the temperature of the water coming into the house. In the dead of winter you're going to get tepid "hot" water.

I have a friend who owns his own plumbing company. He says you want to stay away from electric on demand water heaters. If you go with gas, you should be happy.

Do a Google search of electric vs. natural gas.

We got one for our office. The brand is Titan, and I'm not sure which model it is, but it is a big one. It takes 2 30 amp 220 circuits to run. We don't use a lot of hot water there, but Dad did when he was laid up and showering there. The water is plenty hot and it will keep making it as long as you want.

It wasn't cheap, and it takes some serious electricity to run, but I'm happy.

If I were building a new home and it would be easy to get electricity and plumbing down there, I'd do it.

Hot water heater?

If the water is already hot, why does it need to be heated?

When my kids were at home we had one boy that would take long showers using up all the hot water. I put a quick end to it. I would give him about 10 minutes then I would close the hot water valve on the water heater.
Yeah I was a dick of a father, but none of my kids stayed living at home after high school. And none of them want to come back home to live.
