I'm thinking of switching over to a tankless water heater for our ranch home of approx 2400 sq ft (upstairs and basement). Does anyone have any opinions on the Paloma or Aquastar models(or for that matter another manufacturer)? I'm concerned about it supplying enough hot water but I'm also concerned that my wife will extend her showers thus negating any fuel savings. Is there a way to limit the amount of hot water, say to fifteen minutes, or is this just impractical? Thanks for any feedback.
You may find someone here who has one,if not,these units are designed to supply on demand.I know Aquastar has a web site(www.cetsolar.com),others probably do too.Since the heating mechanism of these units is governed by the rate of flow/water temp. you could lower the setting on your mixing valve and/or install a watersaving showerhead.I did this for the same reason and it only took a few showers to get used to the showerhead.I wouldn't worry about running out of hot water.
