For your tankless, you can call Apple Plus Heating 416-291-1655. Tell them that Gursh gave you the number.

Sometimes when I log in here, I wonder if I am in the right forum. It changed a lot since early 2001.

Yup, that's why I almost never post here anymore.

Here's the difference - mine's already yielded some good results - yours bombed from response one.

Childish? Yep - but wouldn't expect much more then that from you, seeing the way you've reacted to being the butt of a joke. Get over it! It's over! You keep bringing it up, you're only making it worse for yourself. No one else cares - seriously.

So far, I've received a quote for $1050 for the work I need some, which seems reasonable. I have a couple of more guys coming over for a quote in the next couple of days. As soon as I have the right person for the right job, I'll post it and let you know.

My plumber talked me out of the tankless heaters for some reasons which you may have already read:
- costly - 7-9 years return on investment
- not instant - takes time to heat up
- supply - may be endless but if you have multiple uses at the same time if hooked into the primary supply, e.g. dishwasher, washer, shower.
- additional venting if not using the same vent as your previous water heater.

At the end I just replaced mine with another vented water heater from HD. I do have a name of an HVAC person if you need it.

^^^ Yea, I've heard, but I've also heard the opposite (IE the benefits)

1. not heating at the times that you are not using
2. tanks aren't instant either - it takes a minute or so for hot water to reach my upstairs bathroom anyways.
3. you can get units that are setup for 1 use, 2 uses or 3 uses at the same time

If you look at just the rental, I'm saving $250 a year, over 5 years is $1250 plus the gas savings, which estimates look like it anywhere from $30-$50 a month (reading online articles, etc) so even conservatively at $30, that's $360 a year at 5 years = $1800.

From what I see, it looks to be a 4 year or so pay back... Right now I'm most interested in what it costs before I fully consider it.

Freakin' government took away the rebates on it which would have made it about $750 cheaper...

There's no confirmation on what I'm about to comment on but I heard that tankless systems have issues due to the calcium build-up. Has anyone else heard of this type of problem?

I'm also considering a tankless system as I see the benefits, but I'd like to also know the cons of this type of system before I dive in.

I can see that as a problem since it's similar to a conventional water heater unless you have a water softener in which case it would last longer. I would wonder how long tankless water heaters would last given their small form factror.
