How do I select the right unit for my needs?
When selecting a gas tankless water heater you need to keep a couple of things in mind, location, and usage. When we think of location we need to keep venting in mind. The ideal location would be on an outside wall so you could vent directly out, however that’s in a perfect world. In many homes the hot water tank is located in the middle of the basement, and the entire basement has been finished around the mechanical room, this is where our CP homecomfort consultant can help you find the right location to install the water heater.
You also have to consider the usage when selecting your water heater. For example, if you have a large family and quite often you are running the dishwasher and someone’s having a shower, and the laundry is going, then you may need to get the larger BTU unit. On the other hand if you have a smaller family and you don’t have such a large demand, then you would be able to run a lower BTU unit. Once again your CP home comfort consultant will take this information into consideration and recommend the right water heater for you and your family.
