I used Pooles to install a Rinnai tankless water heater for a small house with only one bath. Happy with the work and cost was $2000.

we have had a couple of extremely cold days in the last couple of years - in which my and several others exterior mounted tankless units froze up.

if you go this route - you cannot put enough insulation on and around the unit. The installer had put standard foam pipe wraps; after the freezing , i upgraded it extensively and have not had any problems since. But we also keep on eye on the really cold weather and let a drip go all night.

Have you calculated what the break even date is for it? $4k seems expensive for a hot water heater.

Don't forget to interpolate the value of "0% financing." I would compare to 12% interest.
The $2800 quote upthread looks like a very good price.

I usually see $3000--$3500 as mentioned by RedZin.

Of course, the specifics of the house and installation requirements can alter costs.

I had mine installed last month for a little more that $4500. The variable is how much 1/2 inch gas line needs to be run.



I have a with and 2 teenage girls and the extra money it worth never having to take a cold shower.

My friend that installed it said at it's best my 40 gallon heater would produce 75 gallons of hot water per hour and the tankless will do over 450 per hour.

Right. Gas line.
We were kicking it around. I want black iron pipe, not CSST gas line, and could put the tankless at one end of the house, running 55' of gas line, plus fittings, etc. Or, at the other end and run 50' of PEX.

Won't do it without a recirculator anyway, so the short gas line looks like the most economical.
