Oh, that ends the argument. It's green so it must be good.

The installation manual for mine said I must have five feet (minimum) of vertical double wall pipe for proper draught. Do you not call the double wall pipe that goes up through the roof a chimney? Whatever you call it the one on the water heater that we had was not sufficient and it had to be replaced, including putting a bigger hole through the roof.

The tankless unit itself cost about $425. The rest of the cost was installation (and parts -- my LP company wasn't giving away the two stage regulators ;-), and all that double wall pipe adds up. ) It took a lot of time to install, and the installation had to be by someone with a mechanical license or it voids the warranty.
