      Just purchased a house with new, uninstalled Thermar tankless lp gas water heater. Research shows Thermar no longer manufactured. Is it advisable to go ahead and install and hope for good maintenence or to discard and go with more solid brand name???

      If you will e-mail me your fax number I will send you some very interesting facts about tankless water heaters.

      I would only have a tank type water heater in my house.

      Yes, if you can e-mail me the data on tankless heaters I would appreciate it. This is a cabin, for part time occupancy, so the tankless aspect is appealing from efficiency standpoint. Also, we had a tankless 25 years ago in an apartment we rented in Germany. That one was not without its faults, but haven’t their been improvements in the meantime? My email is davidezell2@charter.net.

      I’ll do a new post so you can see what our Cooperative has to say.

      Thanks for the the “rest of the story” article. It has given me some additional things to consider. I’m okay with the capacity, but the house is on a well and we’ll certainly need to consider the hardness and purtiy of water.

      Thank you for the informative email you sent me regarding the above – I hope you have had time to read my reply to you.
      Electrical Supply Authorities absolutely will defend their electrical energy sales with any means possible as is clearly stated in the data you sent me – however, after all the dust has settled they should just sit back and get on with growning their business in the proper manner – slanging matches between all energy suppliers have and never will resolve issues or give consumers the correct answers to options they may wish to persue.
      Interesting to see that your Companies over there are trying what ours did years ago and still failed for efficiency and economic reasons. Tankless water heaters are in the market to stay and I can assure you that they will increase in numbers very dramatically as folks get to have them fitted in their homes.

      Peter, no problem. I’m still looking for some insight on the original question regarding the Thermar heater. Any experience with these?

      Nope I have no experience with that brand of tankless heater but I would suggest experience has shown me over the many years I have been in business that if the product manufacturer is no longer in business then the best place for the appliance would be the rubbish bin cause it is gunna be hell to try and buy any parts you may need to repair it in the future.
