Bosch 2700 Aquastar Tankless Water Heater

 

Bosch makes highly-rated tankless heaters, and this one can deliver 7 gallons per minute, or GPM, of continuously flowing hot water. That flow rate should be enough to handle the demands of 3 water locations in use at the same time, 2 if one of them is filling a bath tub or jetted tub with hot water.

 

This is a fairly compact unit that can be installed on any wall, reducing the amount of space required. It features electronic ignition, so it only fires when needed without a pilot light wasting energy. The gas valve is modulating which means the system uses sensors to know exactly how much heat is required, reducing energy use and cost. With an Energy Factor of .82, most homeowners report using 30% to 40% less energy to heat water in their homes with this model.

Bosch backs the heat exchanger with a 12-year warranty, but offers just a 2-year warranty on all other parts.

Rinnai RC98HPi Tankless Water Heater

 

Rinnai has the most respected name in the industry, and this unit shows why that’s true. The .94 Energy Factor is very high, as is the 96% efficiency when using either natural gas or propane.

 

The flow rate on the Rinnai RC98HPi is up to 9.8 GPM, so running hot water at multiple locations won’t put a strain on the system. Rinnai backs this model with one of the best warranties in the industry. The heat exchanger is covered for 12 years and all other parts are backed for 5 years. If there’s a downside to Rinnai products, it is their higher-than-average price. But you do get outstanding quality and performance for the extra money.
