    I am looking for some pros and cons for the purchase of a tankless water heater that will in the future be used for hydronic or radiant heat as well. We will need it to supply a shower, washing machine and heat simultaneously.
    The popular brands in my N. Cal. region are Takagi and Noritz. Many plumbing contractors around here install Takagi but I don't know why.

    Radiant and hydronic are the same thing, but the heater demands and temperatures are different, as is the domestic use temperature, so you either need individual units or a means of controlling the various temperatures for efficiency and safety
