Gas here is much cheaper than Japan. As long as gas is cheap it makes those units hard to justify depending on the size of the house etc. Radiant heat is similar, its popular in Europe because gas is expensive so.you need efficiency to combat it. In America radiant heat is a luxury because gas is cheap and the install price is insanely high priced given the large square footage of homes.Dirtywhiteboy said:The fact that EVERYONE uses them in Japan where the cost of living is through the roof isn't enough:blink:
Its not that I'm right, its the math that's right. People who sell tankless know darn well you NEVER EVER sell it based on saving money because the simple preschool math doesn't add up. You sell a tankless with the pitch of "its endless hot water and if you want that buy a tankless"......keeping up with the Joneses is the American way.Dirtywhiteboy said:Damit Mike you're always right
Its weird actually. On real small small stuff like a one bath cabin they are great. On really big homes they can be perfect as well.....but expensive naturally. Its the in-between that's tricky.flashheatingand said:Dude is trying to sell tankless units. (S)He wanted advise on how to go about promoting them. Somehow, (s)he should try to find housholds with many people living there.
Like OconMike said, for the most part, they aren't all that beneficial. But, there are some settings in which they are great. Those are the people to seek.
LOL!:laughing::laughing::laughing:My opinion is that it's only useful if you have a baseball team for a family and there's no hot water left in the morning. Try looking up some manufacturer literature, that might be your best resource but then again, google is your friend.
