Where you are finding you are running out of hot water than gas continuous flow or gas instantaneous may be your best option as these units never run out of hot water as the water is heated as it is used from a tap. You may choose to go to a small electric unit if it’s just a kitchen sink on its own where you would put a small 25-50L unit under the sink to supply one tap.
