    Default Does anyone have a tankless water heater

    I am doing many home improvements this year and am thinking of getting a tankless water heater. I read a bunch of bad reviews on Amazon about the one that consumers recommends.

    Does anyone have one and what do you think of it? Thanks for your help.

    I don't have one but I would it if we had Propane. I honestly don't understand why every Florida home doesn't have at least a solar pre heater for water

    I do have the propane version by Noritz which is very efficient. It has been installed about 2-1/2 years now without a hiccup.

    The electric versions are not as efficient

    We have just moved into our new home (4 days ago) and have one that operates on propane. Our only problem so far is it takes a quite few seconds to get the hot water. Other than that we have had no problems so far for the short time we have had it. Also it did not work at all the first day we were in the house because they had the wires reversed.

    Also another option if you only have electric is a hybrid Heat Pump type water heater.
    Here is a link to the GE version (built in the USA)

    http://www.geappliances.com/heat-pum...ter-heater.htm

    A by product of this type of unit, especially for here in Florida is that if your water heater is in the garage, it will draw the heat out of the garage actually making it feel cooler.

    Try these guys! http://totalcomfortgas.com/propane-p...er-heater.html

    They have Noritz and RinnaiTankless Water Heaters. When I replace our Water heater this who I would use.

    I believe a small heater can be placed at each water dispensing location or just one whole house type. I think I would go with the whole house type.

    Here is their Facebook site too: https://www.facebook.com/totalcomfortfl?ref=ts


    Good luck!

    Thank you everyone. I do not need one yet, so I have time to do the research. Our water heater is old and will probably die anytime now, so I want to know what to get ahead of time.

    Default Re: Does anyone have a tankless water heater

    On the subject of water heaters. We have had two plumbers come to the house for work estimates.

    Both commentated on our AO Smith Water Heater. It has "Yellowish" looking plastic pipes and a one gallon size pressure cylinder. Both have said it is full of water and not air as it should be. They say it would be best to remove it because when we least expect it a break in the plastic pipe will happen. The good thing I suppose is that the thing is in the garage so at least the house will not flood. Yet again another for going with tankless heaters! One more thing. A permit costing almost $100 has to be pulled to take the cylinder off the tank and replace it with a pressure valve. The job costs $50. Crooks, thieves, pirates, and dogs in the night these City of Palm Coast approvers of stupid permit requirements!

    Seriously WHO THE HELL PULLS A PERMIT TO REPLACE AN APPLIANCE. I guess as a life long country boy who was raise to DIY on the farm because there wasn't someone else to call. The City sure isn't promoting law abidance by charging such an outrageous amount.

    That expansion tank is to prevent water hammer (the air inside like a spring or shock absorber) and can be replaced with one that does not have a ruptured bladder or plug the cpvc (yellow PVC for High heat ) you may or may not need it in your house. but if it snapping off is a worry it can be replaced by a much smaller one. a 15 minute job.


    1. Turn the water off at the street (everyone should know how to do this at a moments notice)
    2. Turn the water heater's electric breaker off ,
    3. Turn on both hot and cold water at the lowest outlets to drain the house pipes.
    4. unscrew the tank
    5. wrap teflon tape on the threads of the new one or plug
    6. screw in new expansion device. .
    7. turn water back on faucets off and then electric back on.

    Big hint if you are changing the tank and want to make the job a lot easier in the future.

    Along with a new tank, buy a short nipple and a threaded valve of the same size as the nipple feeding the old tank and install them in line with the new tank. The next time you need to change the tank, just turn off the new valve and swap the tanks, no need to drain everything and get air into the system.

    Default Re: Does anyone have a tankless water heater

    After being in the solar business for nearly 13 years, I have seen and heard a lot about your options. Customers of mine have replaced tankless water heaters because they did not meet their expectations. Customers thought that they would have quicker hot water to the far side of the house. WRONG! Customers thought that it would save them a lot of money. WRONG! Tankless water heaters only advantage is space. If you need that extra 20" in the garage, then they are great. Tankless water heaters still have an operating cost. Due to the price of propane today, nearly $5.75-$6.00 a gallon, it is not cheap. If an electric one is purchased, it will hook up to usually a 100 amp breaker. An electrician is needed for the install and sometimes an electrical upgrade too. The system, setup costs, and operation costs, do not make the purchase smart. Tankless water heaters also have maintenance costs. With the purchase of a solar water heater, like mentioned by another, there is a larger upfront cost. Although there is a $1000 rebate from FPL. There is also a 30% tax credit and no sales tax. These incentives are not available on the purchase of a tankless, for the reason is that tankless it is not as effective in the savings. A solar water heater is now less than 1/2 price. With a solar water heater, you do have a storage tank, storing 80-120 gallons. There is no monthly operating costs. And only 1 small panel is used on the roof that looks like a skylight. Once installed, usually 30% of your electric bill is saved each month. For most people that is usually $50-$60. If this sounds good, please reply and we can set something up to meet at your home to discuss this further. Our company has been doing this for 31 years here locally.

    I too have been selling solar products here in Ormond for the ten years I have been here and have the same experience with the tankless. All the promises are missed yet all options are in the solar. Although one panel is good for two people two panels usually works best for families. The solar also comes with an automatic recirculate so there is no wasting water waiting for it to get hot no matter how far you are from the tank. Call me a Waynes Solar in Ormond Beach anytime and on Saturdays 9-2 or come in and you can see the product first hand. Waynes been in business here for more then 20 years....

    My and my wife wanted the Tankless Water Heater and after serious inquiries into it and ready to have one installed by a company, I believe we were informed that we had to have heavy guage electrical to handle the current. It sounds all good but when you find out the requirements to have one, it shoots down the dream.
