    Smile Tankless hot water heater...

    Well our tankless natural gas hot water heater is up and running and I absolutely love it!!!! I can't wait to see how much difference there is in my gas bill as far as usage. It's amazing being able to get water at the same temp all the way through while using it. I would recommend a tankless to anyone, that's how happy I am with it.

    We need a new water heater and have been getting quotes from various places.

    Do you mind if I ask how much it was including the installation cost?

    $2400...but, we got a $400 discount because we are friends of the family that owns the place we had it done through...so it cost us $2000. The tank was $1649, then there were other material costs as well, plus a little for labor.

    My mom has a tankless water heater and she loves it. I'll have to ask her if she noticed the difference on her gas bill. When ours goes up we are going to get one.

    Keep us updated. I've wanted one of these for years, but I rent now, so I don't have that option. But someday...

    ~I'm so glad you have it and love it. I've been wanting one of these since I first heard about them. Right now we'd only save about $20 a month in gas but when the kids hit their teens I'm sure I'll triple the savings. What size did you get(gallon flow)?~

    max flow is 7.5 gal per minute. It has cut the time to fill the tub (75 gallons) down to 13 minutes without the tap being open full speed and the tub is the furthest water point from the tank. My hubby loves it because now he doesn't have to wait for the water to heat back up before he fills the tub all the way. Before he'd have to shut the water off, wait a bit and then finish.

    Glad it's working for you! My fiance actually bought a tankless for his place and I was SO excited! But the guy came to install it and told him it wouldn't work with his heater hookups unless he rigged something, and that didn't seem safe. So it was returned

    Wow for a traditional one? We just got a new normal one but we got it through the city rehabilitation program, not sure of the cost. Wish I would have asked for a tankless one

    Yes. Includes a 6 yr warranty. A private company quoted us $2400.

    I heard you can have it plumbed in zones.... I have a childcare and the temp must be between 100 and 120 (safety for the children) and we like it a tad higher on weekends....

    meaning installation might be a tad higher for me to get the handwashing sinks replumbed but well worth it for a hot shower.

    I am saving in my freedom fund for a tankless water heater and new windows... looks like the cost will be about the same for each of them.

    I have a traditional electric water heater which is due for replacement. I have a friend who is an honest plummer and he told me that tankless water heaters use more electricity than traditionals. Is this right? He recommended to just buy a smaller water heater which matches our usage and that would be the most economical for my family.
