Tankless Electric Water Heaters


Recommended Posts

Well, the time has come to replace my classic 1974 hot water heater.

We are thinking of going tankless electric. We have a smallis 3 BR house, and it is just my wife, myself and a 6 year old.


Or should I just by a good quality tank unit again?

I would go tankless if you are staying in the house for a while. If you are going to sell then go with the cheaper tank. You can save money in the long run with a tankless, but if you aren't going to be in the house long, then it won't pay for itself. Nice thing from what I've heard is you don't run out of hot water.

For your family size and house-just get a tank style. The tankless are more hype than they are worth. I have not installed an electric one yet just rennai gas units. They will restrict the flow and make using 2 fixtures a pain (thier solution is to add a storage tank-go figure). They have circuit board that can go bad,lime up and the cost.!! Very easy to replace your old one if ya have the few tools.

look on some of the web sites and the suggested areas that they can be used are a tad south of here. The ground water is just to cold (despite global warming) to get the water hot enough in a tankless unit.

On hsolist they have scratch and dent 40 & 50 gallon natural gas water heaters for $125 to $150 and propane power vent heaters, I think $225. Pretty Cheap with warrenty in Burnville.

    • yea that place is awesome!!!   been years since I was there...  maybe a road trip and stop at Bongards too!!!  
    • We actually hardly buy any of the candy, but they have so much other good stuff like the Pies, apple bread, canned and jar pickled stuff, hot sauces etc. 😋
    • I drive by that candy barn all the time its crazy how busy it always is. Ive lived not 5 miles from it for 49 years. Been there once.
    • I'm game to try anything but yeah, I'm not into a lot of fruit or sweety meats.  Plus we made our one trip a year down to the Big yellow candy store already this year. 😋
    • 🙄yea you lost me when you mentioned honey!!!!!! and honestly i'm not a fan of all those "extra"ingredients in my meats.....especially that high temp cheese......yucky!!!!   plantenbergs has all kinds of that type of stuff.......i pass, only get plain sausage and brats.   iffin i was still on the union payroll i would take ya up on that as i travelled through belle plaine on my way back from siouxfalls now and then!!!!! now that i'm on a srick budget......thats a long way to go fer a weinie!!!!!🤣
    • Take a trip down to Belle Plaine. I'll show you some good hot dogs.   Just made Minnesota style summer sausage (blueberries wild rice and honey) for thew first time today.     
    • i've lived in Richmond and now cold spring all my life. my brother ordered a half of beef from this place called Homegrown meats , had never heard of it. know why now, when i picked it up it was established in 2020.  its just south of browns lake at the intersection of 22 and cty rd 43.  nice little place.   he called both Plantenbergs and breagelmans in Richmond........they are 6 months out. Breagelmans actually referred my brother to this place.  he said it was cheaper also!!!!!   i'll be taking some venny trimmings to Mcdonalds in 2 weeks for summer sausage and sticks!!!!!   plantenbergs will get the rest for bologna and hot dogs!!!!! you cant eat other bologna or weiners once you've had theirs!  mcdonalds SS and sticks are also topof the line as far as i'm concerned!
    • Which one?  I've been trying them all around the cloud.  Just had Elk burgers from McDonald's Clear lake last week and Bison tonight.  
    • Burgers from a new butcher shop.👍 good flavor 
    • The big pogo stick front shocks took a little getting used too.
