Yes, they are very nice heaters. Well made, with great tech support. More expensive than most but that is subjective though.

Thanks. Other than cost could you compare them as to Rheem, Bosch, Rinnai,etc?

Hi,
Rinnai is a really good unit, no re-circ pump (Eternal has a 2 gallon res. and pump built in). I have not installed a Rheem so I cannot comment but without doubt stay away from Bosch. The company has terrible tech help and they are way out of date compared to today's units. Eternal has a pretty good websita as does Rinnai.

Take the time to "do the math" when considering a tankless unit:

-how long will you be in your home (return on investment)
-do you have a jetted tub where you need lots of hot water?
-lots of people taking showers/laundrey at the same time
-make sure you have adequate natural pas/propane for the unit
-if you have a power outage you will not have hot water (unless you have a generator)

Please get a licenced journeyman plumber to do your install.

Best of luck to you!
