folks are amazing!
Jeanne Vasquez asked a few weeks ago about tankless
water heaters. I asked you to tell us your experiences.
can run only a few of the 78 responses I received within
the first 24 hours.
went tankless in our house a few years ago, when we had
to replace our old water heater.
think we would do it again. Weíve not had any problems
with it, but there are a couple caveats.
to the location move (tankless is mounted near gas
line/exhaust and wall), it takes longer for the hot
water to reach faucet than it did with the more
centrally located hot water heater.

We donít have a backup generator, and, thankfully, our
power is reliable, but you have to keep in mind that it
uses electricity and could be impacted in an extended
prospect of never running out of hot water, and
efficiency as far as heating have been good."

not waiting for the water to heat up, and having hot
water no matter how many people shower or how long.
is also the added advantage of not having to worry about
or pay for a large tank leaking or heating when we donít

nearest faucets, I have a problem every summer.
a hot shower is fine, but when I try to take a cooler
shower, the hot shuts off completely and I am left with
cold water. I then have to shut it off completely, turn
it back on to hot and finish.
energy savings are eaten up by increased water usage.
When the tankless goes, I am definitely going back to a
