[Greenbuilding] Opinions on electric tankless HW heaters?

Instant electric is usually the last choice on economic and environmental
grounds.

I doubt that Rheem would make them. Another manufacturer that does is
Stiebel Eltron. They have some pretty sophisticated models but they are
expensive and probably no more efficient than their simpler ones.

Even a small instant electric will take about 13kW, so retrofitting one may
call for some expensive wiring.

  I have clients who might be ideal candidates for a tankless hw heater.
They don't have natural gas in their home. I have installed gas tankless,
but don't have any experience with electric tankless heaters. I will need to
size one for a family of two to four.


  Any opinions out there? Bosch? Rinnai? Rheem?...
