<<I would refuse to pay and redirect that money to savings for a tankless water heater. >> I'm constantly amazed at the enthusiasm for tankless water heaters, which aren't especially practical for many American homes and American tastes.It takes a LOT of energy to heat water, so you either have to have a boiler with a large input or be satisfied to have varying and reduced water temperatures when varying water demands are placed on a tankless water heater/boiler.Most American homes have widely varying demand for hot water, including several bathrooms, dishwaher, washing machine and so on. Unless you are satisfied to have the water temperature change widely as these demands are turned on or off, a conventional tank water heater is better for most people.I guess that's why 98% of homes have 'em.Seattle Pioneer
