Danny in Pinehurst. He’s constructing a new home, he says, and he wants to know what’s better: tankless water heater or the good old-school tanked water heater.
In a new home, I’d go tankless. There’s no question. In all the homes I built … At the end of my active building career for probably over a decade, and that was only four years ago when I stopped, they were all tankless. Everybody’s going tankless. Now, on existing homes, there’s a lot of different other questions to answer but on a new home, there’s no doubt about it. Tankless, whether you’re doing several zones depending on the size of the house, if you’re doing propane, if you’re doing gas, that’s the best option.
