tankless water heaters

Tankless or Thankless

on Sat, 03/03/2012 - 22:03

Tankless water heaters are becoming the best thing according to some. Be careful when making this decision. Most sales people will sell you a tankless water heater without asking you about your existing electrical service or recommending you consult with your Fort Lauderdale electrician.

The average water heater requires a 30 amp service at 4,500 watts. A #10 wire is used to accomodate the appliance. In order to satisfy the needs of the average shower or multiple showers, you must install a tankless water heater which might require a 60, 70, or 80 amp service.
