Installation costs aside, I love this new water heater. For good measure, I had the installer set the thermostat at 130 (10 degrees above the factory setting). For the first time in a long time I do not have to worry about running out of hot water. The water is more than hot enough, even with at least one major appliance pulling hot water at the same time the shower is going. We have not yet exceeded its ability to produce hot water for multiple outlets.
And yes, I also love having the extra room for storage that the traditional hot water heater occupied.
UPDATE - It is now mid-summer in the very hot South. I've been able to reduce the thermostat on my wonderful tankless water heater to 104 for the summer months since the municipal water supply is surface water. The Rheem RTG-95DVN continues to work very well. A very important point to keeping your gas bills low - given the low minimum activation flow rate, keep the tap all the way on cold if you have single-lever taps. Otherwise, the tank will activate every time you turn on the water, unnecessarily raising your gas bill. I figured that out during the first couple of months of owning this water heater.
After I purchased and received delivery of this unit, I spent the time reading up on the installation as per the manufacturer and was surprised at all the warnings and restrictions on how to install it. Had I studied the manual and done the research beforehand, I might have hesitated to dive into this project instead of doing a much simpler "replace-in-kind" conventional water heater. In the end, I'm happy with this installation and the huge amount of space I regained in my Boiler/ Laundry Room without a 50 gallon tank occupying space.
Two most critical aspects that you need to look at prior to installing one of these in an existing home:
1. Relocate the ventilation piping for this heater. Manufacturer is very specific that you cannot pipe this heater into your existing flue duct and chimney. The reason is that the vent piping is actually two pipes in one (a 3-inch stainless steel pipe for flue gas centered in a 5-inch vent pipe for fresh air intake). The fresh air gets heated up by the heat of the exhaust gas as it travels within the 5-inch pipe into the heater's combustion chamber.
2. The gas service and line might need to be upgraded. My old HW Tank used a ½-inch gas line. The new HW Heater requires a ¾-inch line. The old heater needed roughly 40,000 btu while the tankless unit uses as much as 200,000 btu.Read more ›
As far as the heating unit itself goes, I was pleasantly surprised that it worked well right from the start with no problems especially after hearing all the horror stories from the Bosch heaters. The most significant difference you will find is the increase in time it takes hot water to get to your faucet. For this reason low flow faucets and shower heads are not a good idea. Count on the time to at least double from a regular water heater. Also, these heaters are far less effective in cold climates with low ground water temps for this reason. In the end you will save energy in gas but use much more water to get hot water. Another thing to consider is getting faucets with separate hot and cold handles so you only turn the hot water on when specifically needed- otherwise you will constantly kick on your heater without getting any hot water.Read more ›
