Question about Bosch PowerStar AE125 AE125 Whole House Electric Tankless Water Heater...
Our first boosch ae 125 was replaced under warrranty within 6 months, now after 30 months (1 year wrranty on parts) and we need a new control board for $278 plus electrician diagnostic visit and installation. Ouch, time and money.
We have a Siebel Elton heater that has worked very well...but it has only been in two years now! The Siebel Elton replaced an electric SETS hot water heater. DO NOT BUY A SETS HOT WATER HEATER. We sent it back three times and it never worked. The company was horrible to work with as was its water heater. The Bosch technical service is not bad but the repairs on this ae125 is destroying any cost benefits over a conventional hot water tank.
I have a rinnai infinity 24. Been perfect for 2 years but now only heats water to shower and sometimes kitchen sink.Nothing to bath or handbasin

The only Bosch tankless I have ever touched have been the 3 I have taken out and replaced with Rinnai. I think Bosch/Paloma/etc. have two problems:
1. They do not properly certify technicians before allowing them to install these units.
2. Their product is mediocre at best.
The biggest problem I've seen is that people don't vent them properly. The last one I pulled out had a combined vent length of 55'. 55 FEET! Absurd!
The units was condensing so much inside the vent that it washed out 2 gas control valves in ONE YEAR.
Buy Rinnai, buy Takagi, buy Noritz....maybe even a Navien (new player...time will tell)
Factory certified technicians, preferably equipped to do the gas & plumbing without having to sub it out.
Years of trouble-free hot water.
