For a lot of us it just seems silly to heat water all day long in a big tank to dose it out just at the beginning and end of the day. On first glance it just makes more sense to use an on-demand water heater. Here is a brief checklist of some of the hurdles many of our clients have been struggling with over the last 5+ years and honestly it keeps coming back to installed cost and their expectations of "unending hot water." My experience - I have a conventional water heater in my home. I wish I had an on-demand water heater but it doesn't quite make sense in my home. I first stayed in a house using on-demand water heating in Japan a few years ago and loved it!

On-demand water heating is the way the world is headed. I love having this conversation with clients, analyzing their current household and providing them with information relative to their unique home so they can make the decision that is right for them. I predict that adoption rate of on-demand water heating will continue to increase year after year.
