I was aware of the gas problems, luckily for me, I suppose, I am all electric. I have a laundry room with my eletrical panel is that is actually 22 feet closer to ALL of my water pipes than my present hotwater tank. this is where I would want to put a tankless if I so chose to install one!

I just dont know anyone that has one and I have read alot about them on the 'net. but it is split 50/50 pros and cons....

Maybe I should put an ad in my are....'do you have a tankless water heater and can we chat.....?'

I don't know if this Forum allows Polls or not, but that would be a neat way to get your task accomplished.

I would say that there is no way an electric tankless unit would make anyone happy especially in the northern climate.

The cost of installing a gas tankless is going to be 2 to 3 times the cost of a tank type with a very slow payback. If you are looking for payback in terms of space or, want an unlimited amount of hot water at a fairly low flow then great its what you want.
