Greetings,
I would like to hear opinions on tankless waterheaters. I'm building a new weekend cabin in north Texas and love the idea. Just don't know how practical they are.
Thanks
Terry Loveless

Hi Terry: There isn't a more practical way to heat water than tankless. They don't use any power until you open a faucet or run a shower.
We even have a heater that has it's own built-in freeze protection. Are you interested in gas, propane or electric?
If you e-mail me, I'll attach some literature for you.
I'm in Lake Charles, Louisiana and can ship very quickly to north TX.
Please let me know if I can help.
Regards, Brian in Swampland.

A number of folks in our area have used them as their whole house daily use method of heating water. Some have been disappointed. They've been in use for many years in Europe and have excellent advantages. Since you'll be using it for a weekend getaway and wouldn't want the expense of maintaining hot water all the time, I'd think it would make a lot of sense. If you've got a hot tub or whirlpool that you'd be filling frequently, make sure you've got the heating sized to support the volume of water. Also, some have recommended separate units for different use areas -- one for kitchen, one for bath, etc.
