Tankless Water Heaters

Posted: December 6, 2011 in Inspector Jim's Blog

According to experts and our research, NOT a good idea for large families. Tankless heaters burn at about 170,000btu per hour, and they need a 1″ gas line. Tank heaters burn at 40,000ph w/ recovery time of 45mins. You do the math!

  1. Most of the tankless heaters I’ve inspected are gas, but still expensive as far as fuel. Most burn at about 170,000btu’s an hour. That’s alot of gas and $$.
