Q: What is a tankless water heater?
Q: I’ve heard that tankless water heaters can save you a lot of money. Is this true?
Q: So why would I buy a tankless water heater for my cabin?
Q: What if I need hot water for only one location in my cabin, like my kitchen sink?
Q: What kind of fuels can I use to run my tankless water heater?
I looked at tankless water heaters at my local hardware store, and
there was a big difference in prices between models and manufacturers.
Q: So how do I know how big of a unit I need for my cabin?
All right, I did the bucket test, and on a busy day at the cabin, I
might need 10 gallons per minute (gpm) of hot water. I like my showers
at a steamy 120 degrees. How do I determine the second factor, the
incoming water temp?
Q: Okay, I’m going to bite the bullet and go tankless. Can I install this myself?
