Tankless water heater - unhappy it takes LONGER to get hot water :(

5 years ago

I just had a tankless water heater put in with the sole purpose being to provide hot water more QUICKLY to my upstairs bathroom. The plumber put it on the side of my house; the previous tank water heater was further away in my laundry room in my garage.

I came home and tried it out and takes TWICE as long to get hot water to my bathroom! I am very unhappy. He is returning tomorrow and I am thinking of having him take the whole thing out. Has anyone else experienced this?

I admit I should have done more research. I just assumed that these tankless heaters would provide "instant" hot water as I have seen in other homes. I don't know why it is not working as I have seen it work elsewhere. Any ideas?
