Re: Reasons NOT to get a tankless water heater
Since you're in Houston, you don't want a water heater -- tank or tankless -- in your air conditioned space. You'll save a lot of money by not having to move ambient heat created by the water heater to the outside.
If you lived in some place that has harsh winters and mild summers, it's an energy advantage to have the water heater within the conditioned space.
The "Senior Member" designation under my name doesn't mean I know a lot, it just means I talk a lot.I've been a DIYer since I was 12 (thanks, Dad!). I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
