I been thinkin about this for a long time and finally the price of fuel oil to run my super cell is at a crossroads. We heat the house completely with a pellet stove the last few years and are going to a wood stove in the basement an a full insulation job in the basement this Fall to boot. Now comes the Option for hot water heater. I see the super tankless jobs are a pile of money, more than I can justify really for something pretty common everywhere else on the planet. Being in NY both Propane and Electric are not very well priced with Ny State Electric and Gas. I guess at least for the moment some form of electrical is viable even here. Ok, I have had my eye on the NORITZ in Home Deopot. I can get that one one of the wifes American Express Gift cards so essentially it costs me next to nothing. The electric hookup doesn't seem too daunting either. I realize those things don't put out a large amount of hot water but in our case it seems that we can manage one if I put in some sort of preheater to get the temp of incoming water up to 65F or higher. We only use one shower at a time anyways and don't use much hot water at all really, managing to turn on the 30 gallon supercell now once a day and managing with that. All clothes washing is cold and dish washer is a once in a while night time thing anyways. We have 200 amp service in the house and there is lots of breaker space ect. What say ye who have any experience with these things? I see looking around the net it runs across the board from love to hate with very little in between. I have to wonder if it is a versatility and expectation thing. Any real life experience or enlightening web sites appreciated.
