    Good day. Winter is coming and it’s really annoying. I’m planning to buy a tankless water heater. I checked all of the water heater on Amazon and in this site http://www.elreviews.com/tankless-water-heater-reviews/. There so many choices in there and I’m confused. Please help me with my problem, give me some suggestion and advice on what would be the best water heater that I should buy. Thank you!

    I, at least, never make recommendations. There are numerous models that are always changing and keeping track of them would be a full-time job. That said, this is probably not the place to seek guidance. We don’t like tankless, for reasons explained abundantly on our tankless page in the Basics section.

    Hello, You may have read on this site some concerns about tankless heaters. There are certainly places for them, but they have been oversold in my opinion. Still, if after researching things, you want to go that route, you’re best finding a brand that is well supported locally, both in terms of parts and skilled labor. That turns out to be the best insurance. Also, do read the warranty very carefully before buying. 😉

    Yours, Larry

    Tankless cannot be exposed to more than 11 grains hard water, and must be delimed each year to help maintain efficiency, regular maintenance is recommended to avoid error codes, DIY repairs are not possible, parts are expensive, warranty is not 20 years as promotion frequently says, DIY installation might void product warranty …

    For gas: venting is significantly different than typical tank heater, must be connected to 3/4″ gas line with 1″ gas line within 10′ / tankless consumption of fuel can starve other gas appliances of fuel. Expected $4-8 saving per year vs tank-type is not worth the cost of possible repair bill.

    For electric tankless: whole house tankless can require new electric service with 250-300 amp. Tankless electric estimated to cost $100 more to operate per year than tank heater.

    Tankless electric is useful for individual bathroom or shower.
    I recommend avoiding tankless products otherwise.

    Generally tank-type heaters can be maintained to last almost indefinitely, and can be repaired DIY without expensive repair.

    Do not buy a Thermodynamic system from Little Magic Box. This is a complete rip-off. There are better products on the market for half the price. https://www.magicboxinternational.com/

    Hello, Did you install one and have it not perform? I’ve not dealt with this sort of system, but merging solar and heat pump together sounds like a good idea.

    Yours, Larry
