Best brand of tankless water heater?
It's time to replace my old gas water heater, and I'm going to go tankless.
My local water company runs a promo where they subsidize the cost over 5 years by billing you $25/mo for the unit, which works out to $1500. The installation "can" be free, but I'm told that it's normally another $300-600 depending on needs. I suspect my install would be on the cheaper side.
Last time I checked into this (1 1/2 years ago), they were using one of 2 Rheem units. I don't mind spending all the cash up front, and it seems like $1500 can get me pretty much anything.
I'm looking for the best brand of unit to go out and buy, and then have a local company install and service. I also need to know a little about maintenance/warranty work and how that would generally be handled, as that could effect my decision.
Lastly, sizing. I have an 1850 sq ft house with 1 1/2 bath, 2 adults, 1 child. My washer is a Kenmoore HE4t front loader, only 2 years old, and my Dishwasher is top of the line LG from 1 1/2 years back. We try not to run the wash/dishwasher when we shower, but it happens sometimes.
