Who has them and what do you think of them? Me and the wife are building in the upcoming month and have to make a decision on getting one or going with the standard 80 gallon electric. Gas is not run in the area, so we have to factor in a gas tank (which we would have to bury).
i had 2 friends put some in. one gas and one electric. the gas is still going. the electric has been replaced with conventional water heaters.
my friend with the electric on demand had problems within a few months of his house being built.
I have built 9 houses in the last few years Plumbing supply and City building code recommended them highly. Have used them in 6 houses oweners love them they save money even with base cost of $750 plus they pay for themselves in 2.5 yrs Recommend a gas unit burns hotter and cleaner but needs venting Electric is OK but not as efficent I also suggest you talk to plumber abou plumt mannibloc plumbing system Its like a plumbing breaker box all water cutoffs in one unit & lasts forever good luck

I recommend to put in a hardy heater if you are not scared to work and cut wood you can heat your house plus water and in summer time you can still use it for heating your water best investment of my life my utility bill went from 400-425 to 125-150 in winter months
Go gas... You won't regret it... Could not be more efficient.
The gas tankless heaters are worth the trouble of the installation. Rinnai is a good brand, although the other mfgs have probably caught up by now. Manabloc works well (for PEX). It keeps the toilet flushing from affecting the temp in the shower, although a good plumber won't have this issue in a standard install.
Go with the gas for sure. We had two tank heaters and I replaced them both with a gas tank-less. They have their little quirks, nothing major.. We love it.
Literally you can run the hot water all day and never run out. Power bill dropped about 30 bucks a month and didn't notice much of an increase in the gas bill.

What offensive statistic do you measure success by?
Gus Malzahn: “Points.”
I sold plumbing supplies for years do not go electric tankless, nothing but problems.

We have a natural gas one and love it. We moved in September into a new house about 800 square feet larger than our older house, and so far the utility bill is running less. I am sure that is mostly due to the Rinnai system.
