getting a propane on demand hot water heater ...
What is your water usage like? A lot of continuous flow or a lot of short on and off? If the former the on demand will be OK. If the latter, not so much as 3 seconds of cold water (at 1/2 gallon/min flow rate minimum) will flow through before it fires and a heat pump hybrid heater would be better. Hopefully the OD you are getting has a small holding tank in it. The one the plumbers got for us does not and I don't think that is a good thing. Might have been nice if they had given me options.

Sadly, our basement gets so cold that I have to have some vents in the ductwork to keep it from literally freezing down there. I have electric heat tape wrapped around both the pipes going into and out of the pressure tank. As such a hybrid heat pump wouldn't be useful. Makes no sense to heat the air so the basement doesn't freeze then use the warmed air to heat the water.
