Tankless heaters seem to be about the same price as a new hot water tank and they use 20% or so less power/gas over their lifetime, so wouldn't that make up the costs?
I want one because I want to reclaim a little space in my basement. It won't do me any good until my furnace dies in a good 15 or so years, but still.
