I had one installed in my new house, installed the electrical lines during construction and everything. After 6 months of actual use I was so dissapointed I took it out and sold it on ebay. Bought a traditional tank heater and have been happy ever since.

Just my opinion, but I think they are way over-rated.

Tankless heaters are pricey.
