In praise of tankless hot water heaters.

8 05 2008

Given that I’m spending most of my days nursing and attending to my 13-day-old daughter, I’m sure our readers will forgive my indulgence of passing along good info found on other blogs.

This post by Jason Pelletier of Low Impact Living captures the pros, cons and requirements of tankless hot water heaters.  It’s one of those things that would be a great idea in some situations and wouldn’t work at all in others.

At the request of a colleague, I contacted a local plumber who did a great job on our radiant floors to see if they had done any of these tankless hot water heater installations. He said that they did but that they were so backed up with oil to gas conversions that they wouldn’t be available to even start work for 2-3 months!

You heard it here first! If you want to upgrade your heating or domestic hot water systems in time for next winter, line up a plumber NOW.
