Let’s dive into what options you have and discuss all the possibilities and below we will answer your question of “How much is it going to cost me?”

pros & cons
Oftentimes the best way to compare options is to look at the pros and cons of each choice. Tankless water heaters certainly have their perks, but they also can have their downsides. Let’s take a quick look at each:
Electric Tankless Water Heaters
Residential units range in power from 3.5kw up to 36kw. They are powered by high voltage electricity and pull a lot of power at once.
3.5kw can only produce about 0.68 gallons per minute of hot water.
Considered “point of use” mini tankless, they are a good option for one sink where local plumbing codes require some minimal hot water to wash hands, like in a public restroom. Most faucets are about 1.5 gallons per minute, so you can see how it’s not a good option in a home.
Units lower than 11.5kw = 2.15 gallons per minute would not provide adequate hot water for a shower. Most showerheads now have restrictors and limit the flow to 2.5 gpm. So the 11.5kw unit is cutting it close to not being able to keep up.
The water flow from a bathtub spout can be 4-6 gpm depending on the shower valve. If you try to fill a bathtub with a 11.5kw tankless water heater, you will most likely run into the issue of the water coming out cold, since the unit is being over used.
