I do not know anyone who has had a good experience with an electric tankless. Have you checked the power requirement. To get any decent flow rate, you will need fairly large wires, circuit breakers, and main feed to the houss. Anything less that 60 amps will be unsatisfactory, and even 60 amps may not be adequate for your use, Some users require a 120 amp unit.

: I am considering replacing my 40 Gal elec. tank heater with a tankless (also called instant) water heater. After much research I have narrowed my choices down to either a Seisco or an Envirotec 2000. I decided to stay with electric since my house is total electric, natural gas is not available and I dont care to go to the expense and trouble to add LP piping and a tank. My question is: Does anyone have any experience with tankless water heaters, good or bad?
