    I think there are a lot of misconceptions regarding tankless water heaters. I’m glad this research has been done by a reputable company that wouldn’t really have a bias to push.

    Yes, Ill be the first to admit that a tankless isn’t always the right choice, but with proper understanding they are a fantastic option for home owners. Now pair a tankless with a DWHR system and there are some real savings to be had!!!
