    Have an 18 year old Rheem gas water heater in a 9 unit apartment building that is nearing the end of its life. After going on youtube and a variety of sites, there doesn't seem to be a consensus about who makes the best water heater. The current tank is 100 gallons and the building has copper...

    We're buying our first house, in CA. Very excited! It's a remodeled house built in 1962, and it has two water heaters: a 30 gallon one near the kitchen side of the house, and a 50 gallon one on the bathroom side (the Master Bath also has a jacuzzi tub, if that's relevant). They're both over 6...

Cost of tankless including equipment and install from $3800 to $4300 (got 4 difference quotes). And federal rebate calculation which has a very...
