They work well if you've got relatively short runs to the fixtures- if not, you've got to wait a while for the hot water to get to you. You can solve that problem with a standard HWH by using a recirc pump, but that doesn't work with a tankless, as the constant return of cooled water would cause the tankless to kick on, which defeats its purpose.

There's a new unit out that's pretty awesome! It's actually a high efficiency boiler (95% AFUE) with a built in "tank-in-tank" indirect fired water heater that is capable of producing 180 gph of domestic hot water! And best of all...it's made right here in good old NJ : ) It has a stainless steel heat exchanger...self cleaning / self descaling which means "low maintenance! It's a wall mounted unit as well so it's nice and compact. The company who makes it is Triangle Tube and the unit is called Prestige Excellence. If I had hot water baseboard heat, I would put one in but unfortunatley the builder put in "forced air".

the webiste is www.triangletube.com
