    Just wondering if anyone has switched to a tankless water heater recently? Just wondering if it's worth the extra rental cost? how does it affect gas bill?

    Hi guy!
    We seem to be on the same hunt! We are currently considering getting Bosch tankless heater to install in our apartment. I'm trying to learn this issue thoroughly. I'm reading reviews online https://iwaterpurification.com/tankl...eater-reviews/ and have found out that the tankless technology delivers as much hot water as you need.
    ​​​​​​​Does anyone out there have experience with replacing an electric hot water heater with a tankless heater?

    I had considered it, but in the end went with a 40-gallon standard hot water tank.....for a single-member household.

    Yes. As part of a boiler replacement. On demand hot water. Saved on hydro for electric hot water tank. Minimal cost of extra gas. Unlimited hot water. Love it!

    Did you purchase it or is it a rental? If you rent was the installation an extra cost added or was it part of your rental fee? Just wondering.

    Purchased the new boiler (radiators) and on-demand hot water system as a replacement for previous boiler and electric hot water tank. Would never rent. Have annual maint done on the boiler. the on-demand hot water requires no maint. Could not be happier with both systems.

    My DD has had one for 3 years with absolutely no complaints. They never run out of hot water and no gas is wasted keeping water hot. They are renting the tank.

    Was the one you had before a rental? Just curious as to how difficult it is to get rid of rental when buying a tankless one. Anyone know how long tankless water heaters last for?

    Yes. The electric water heater was a rental. Was no issue canceling my contract and they came and took it away. I had the tankless and boiler already installed at that point. Rental was with a different company. On demand has very few parts (at least mine does) so it should last.

    My Mom loved her tankless (purchased) hot water heater - but could never figure out why the dishes didn't get clean in the dishwasher. The water had to come quite a distance to the kitchen - so it never got hot when the dishwasher ran. We figured the solution would be to run the hot water before turning on the dishwasher to warm it up.

    I connected mine to the cold water line and let it heat the water to the temp it needs. It does not assume hot water input. Maybe yours can be set somehow to heat the water as it needs it?

    We installed a tankless over 10 years ago. Definately worth the expense. The biggest downfall for ours is having to run the water for a while before it gets hot. As I said ours is over 10 years old and newer models probably address this. Definately saves natural gas. With a conventional tank water heater it would have to been replaced by now. With that in mind a tankless is not as expensive over the life span.
