“We have had our tankless unit for several years since 2010 and are happy with our purchase. Low cost to run with low energy use. The best part is no more leaks from a tank.”
“I look after a few different properties as a superintendent and have about 5 different tankless water heaters in all of them. This one works just as good for the smaller properties and I don’t have to worry about flooding.”
“Easy process to put in and I’m seeing the savings in my electric bill”

“Saves me money compared to my old 55 gallon tank heater, and I don’t have to wait in between showers.”
“I love that this is installed on the wall and only uses energy when you need hot water, unlike a tank that uses electricity all the time.”
“Had this for about 2 months now and works great, I’m happy with the closet I was able to get back where the old tank was.”
“This is great savings in our local fire hall where we only use it maybe a few times a week, so this is perfect rather than having a tank sitting all the time keeping the water hot.”
