If you are considering replacing a traditional unit with a tankless hot water heater, it is important to choose the correct unit to install in your home. The highest rated tankless water heaters offer features and longevity and are superior to the earlier generation of systems. While many more manufacturers are getting into the game, presenting their product as being the best tankless water heater on the market, consumer response and ratings can steer you in the right direction. Several factors must be considered when making a choice:
- Flow capacity
- Energy source
