    gas, they will save you about 50% on energy cost of heating water. This would be a great feature and I think you get a tax credit for it too.

    I am not sure if you are talking about what is called an instant water heater.they have only some problems.that being the fact that the water is not as hot as you may want it to be nor does it give you the quantity that you may want a for pressure or volume. Also the only one I have seen are electric and any electric heat usually cost more .

    I have a tankless water heater in my home and it is the best thing ever. It provides endless hot water so you can shower all day if you want and it never runs out. My electric bill went down about 35 dollars a month also as it only turns on when you activate hot water. A tank model turns off and on all day even if you don’t use it. The water is also safer as a tank can develop rust, germs and sediment in the storage tank. Although gas can provide hotter water it is very unsafe. Rheem and other tank companies just recalled like 50,000 gas tankless units for carbon monoxide poisoning in homes. Its like car exhaust entering your house!! here is the recall link for gas units: http://www.tankless-recall.com/
    I have electric and it works great and is much safer. It was easy to install! I can fill my tub all the way and never worry about hot water running out. I can have 10 guests over and not worry about the hot water running out!!!
    I did a lot of research and the largest selling unit and one that I use is the Titan Tankless N-120 Water Heater. They invented it and have been in business 20 years.
    All of the information on the unit and helpful things to help you decide are on their site at http://www.titantankless.com
    Please be careful about gas models as they are DANGEROUS!
    I would stick with electric.
