Installation instructions come with tankless water heater, but would recommend someone experienced enough to install.
There are a number of factors that determine where the plumbing contractor decides to install it. If it is a gas heater, it needs to be located where it can be vented to the outside. Typically the heater should be as centrally located as possible to facilitate hot water getting to all of the fixtures it is attached to. They will attempt to minimize the length of the piping runs. Takes less piping and less work to install.
Install a bigger water heater. This would only be efficient if you had a constant need for an increased volume and could bear the added cost of installing, operating and maintaining a larger heater. Or increase the temperature on the water heater so you use less to get warm water. This also has its practical limits, where water could be delivered to the faucet at a dangerous temperature (over 130 F), unless properly controlled. Or install another water heater in parallel, giving you twice as much hot water before it starts getting cool. Larger facilities may have three or more heaters in parallel and another one in series for pre-heating the supply to the others.
Well then either=1- get a heater with larger capacity OUT put or storage==2- Install water conserving devices as the sink would use a lot less water then a tub or shower=
a direct vent water heater is more fuel efficient (cost's less to operate). aside from that there isn't much difference, aside from not needing a double wall flue through the roof on a standard gas water heater.
Propane heaters cost less to run per hour.
they put 75% in any propane tank, no more no less. 100 pounds of propane or about 23.5 gallons
My guess is that the hot water heater is installed downstream from a pressure reducer to limit the maximum water pressure that the water heater is exposed to.
You can save more money when purchasing a reliance water heater ,because it is less cash consuming and useful. Purchasing is cheaper them renting one.
At current gas prices they cost less to use and a gas heater gives you a much greater supply of hot water on demand.
A lot less because the water is flowing if it is exiting and it depends on the water pipe size.
No, an expansion tank is not required.
The water heater may be filling with sediment making it harder for the water to heat and less volume of water available.
the magical elves man they save your energy for you
No. 120 volts is not enough to power up the heating rods inside the water heater. You must have 240volt connection, nothing less.
1 pound of propane is a little less than 1/4 of a gallon.
A propane-powered generator is a generator that is powered by propane instead of being battery powered or running on electricity. A generator is a device that generates electricity to power a home and/or heating and/or water system during a power outage. Propane-powered generators start easier and fast and need less time to warm up.
The install is difficult because insert hole is on driver's side, closest to firewall. The Toyota dealer charges $150 for part and install. Canadian Tire charges less than $100 (both less tax) Part is same. Install time charged at CT in Westbank, BC was 1/2 hour and part was $46. Routed cord myself. Heater is not inserted inside block but is clipped in place to heat the outside of the block.
Yes. I would. If you are replacing the hot water lines, it is also a good time to drain the hot water heater and get rid of all the junk at the bottom of the hot water heater. That should be done once a year. Your hot water heater must be off when you do that, your hot water heater should be off when you drain your hot water heater. You will see boiler scale come out of your water heater. Leaving the boiler scale in your water heater makes it less efficient. It makes it harder to heat your water. It is the same as throwing money down the drain. If you want to give your money away, you should give it to the Salvation Army instead of the Utility Company.
Not significantly. Using less hot water in general will save.
Density of hot water is less than that of the cold water,hence the cold water from the bottom rises upwards after getting heated
Propane is much more convenient and less messy as well as giving your food a different taste.
Much safer to useNon-toxic, insoluble in water, no threat to soil, and aquifers water supplyEmits much less carbon dioxide
A single tankless water heater will not cope with all that.
Many manufacturers recommend periodic flushing of water heaters to remove sediment that can build up. The sediment can cause discoloration of the water and can make the water heater less efficient. Be sure to follow the manufacturer's owners guide for your hot water heater.
There are two types of tank-less water heaters that run on two different fuels. There is a electric heater, and an oil heater. One gets plugged in the other uses oil
