New here and first post.
Our house is being remodeled in the Bay Area of N. California, and we wish to replace our existing water heater with a tankless heater. My family is adding solar to the house so I’d like to go with electric tankless heating if it can meet our energy needs because it will cost essentially nothing to run. There are five of us in our family, and we have three bathrooms. The chances of 3 simultaneous showers are extremely low, but I am very interested in hearing what folks have to say about whether we can make it work.
What is the best option for a gas or electric tankless water heater? And what should be the GPM?
It’s also hard to make sure I’m finding the correct data about average water temperature.
I would rather go for tankless water heaters. Although gas is more energy-efficient than tankless, tankless is easier to maintain and has a 5-6 GPM, which saves me a lot of money compared to my old water heater.
In Ukraine where I live gas taxes are so high atm so in such a case I really recommend the electric one
