    Not sure about cost comparison as we are in cubic meters, but I'm happy to see that my usage has dropped dramatically with P.E. Summit install.
    They only read gas meters here 4 times a year, with the other months based on an estimate from previous years usage.

    Finally got an actual reading for February where I could make a valid comparison with last year, before the insert.
    Gas usuage last year was average of 16.4 cubic meters a day, this year down to 1.4 cubic meters a day (gas hot water tank).
    Cost dropped from around $450 for the month last year to $41, so around $1.15 a day for hot water, even with a price increase. Assuming December, January and March all drop by a similar factor, the insert will have paid for itself in about 3 years, even factoring in cost of wood.
