Re: On Demand Water Heater

I,ve been lookin into these as well.I,ve read that the gas ones are a lot more expensive and also read that they can be counterproductive and not work as described.

Re: On Demand Water Heater

I never owned one but I stayed at a place that had one. Don't know what make but it was noisy when it turned on and ran. Other than that, plenty of hot water and seem to work just fine.

Itís funny until somebody gets hurt, then itís hilarious

Re: On Demand Water Heater

Are you looking for a point of use ,or a whole house ? Todays heaters are much more efficiate and reliable than the older ones which is why they get a bad rap.
Rinnai is a good brand and many options. I recommend you stay away from big box stores and order on line for best pricing. I saved a lot by doing that. Got one for sister to replace a 40 year old sears gas unit. family now has unlimited water for morning showers

Re: On Demand Water Heater

I have no experience with gas models.

The older electric models were based on rate of flow, X amount of gals per minute could be heated to X degrees.

They used 38 amps so they had to be wired with # 8 wire.

Re: On Demand Water Heater

It would be for a whole house. Its only me and the wife no kids so wouldnt really have a whole lot of demand. Just a shower and some dishes now and then. I heard Rinnai are good also. Im just hoping install isnt going to be to bad.
