Tankless water heater
jacenda313December 6, 2013
We just bought a home built in 1920, we are trying to update it and make it energy efficient. We have 4 teenage kids, so there are 6 of us. We want to get a tankless water heater. Dies anybody know what kind of rennai or takagi we should get???
Thank you in advance!

There was a discussion on tankless water heaters not too long ago. Unfortunately, houzz has again changed their website and I can't figure out how to search for it. The consensus from that discussion, though, seemed to be NOT to get one. If I can find the discussion, I'll post it here.

Correct grover. Very few Houzzers in favor of tankless in that posting. I am not a fan except for special conditions like a remote outside shower.

I have the Rinnai and LOVE it. We had our family here for Thanksgiving with 4 showers running at the same time, never ran out of hot water.

Tankless water heaters are great and it give you all the hot water you need on demand. Its a green product and saves space.

Rennai are very good. With a large family like yours, you would benefit from a tankless. People with small families, or couples, it would be a waste of $.

I have a whole house tankless water heater, and I love it. If your house is large you might want to install point-of-use boosters inthe bathrooms, though.
