I'm looking at this electric tankless hot water heater and had some questions..
Has anyone actually installed one of these? I'm in the process of upgrading from a 60A to a 200A panel and will have plenty of room for this (replacing a 40 gal electric water heater). I read the reviews on the home depot site and on amazon, but was curious if anyone had any experience actually installing and/or using one of these. I'm not so turned off by the cost since it would potentially free up a lot of room for me. I can't see how it could be any more costly to operate than my current tank electric heater.
The one thing I worry about is flow rate. We have two baths and this says it can run 3.8Gpm. Ideally I'd like to be able to be taking a shower and not get blasted with cold water when someone turns on the sink. I'm reasonably certain I won't be able to run both showers at the same time. Another poster mentioned that an electric wouldn't even handle a bathtub at full blast (without getting cool). Is that true? I live in Augusta, GA where it only dips below freezing for a month or two a year (at night) so I think the incoming water will be fairly warm. I know in the summer, even the cold water feels warm from the tap.
Thanks for any insight you can provide.
