Choosing the Right Tankless Water Heater
When we talk about TANKLESS WATER HEATERS, we are most often talking about GAS-FIRED models (natural or propane gas). Although there are ELECTRIC MODELS, they are not suited for most whole-house applications here in the Pacific Northwest due to our colder climate. ELECTRIC TANKLESS WATER HEATERS can work in cabins, additions, espresso stands, or small homes where no more than one fixture at a time will be used. However, the electrical requirements will almost always exceed the power that is available in the average home or business. For this reason, we advise customers to check with an electrician first to see if the electrical requirements can be met before proceeding. A typical ELECTRIC TANKLESS WATER HEATER will require 3 separate 240-volt, 40-amp circuits, with 8 gauge conductors. This is a total of 120 amps. We can refer an excellent electrician here in the Puget Sound if need be.
