It has been brought to my attention that we have a serious lack of hot water.
I, personally, have never experienced this issue.
I wake up first, shower first, and enjoy all the hot water my little heart desires in a morning soap-down. Apparently, this doesn’t work the same way for anyone else living in the Cavender House. When Jamie stumbles into the shower, shortly after me, the hot water has been reduced to just a small trickle – especially obvious on chilly mornings. This last week, the temps in Dallas dipped down to the TEENS.
Not exactly luke-warm trickle shower weather.
But don’t y’all worry about Jamie.
This week we solved his dilemma……well, Home Depot solved it.
We are now a “Tankless Water-Heater Kinda Family”.
Good timing to, our old water heater (from 2004) didn’t have many more miles left on her.
Now we’re working with this…
Beautiful, ain’t she?
Should be……she cost as much as a used car.
Welcome to the 21st century Cavender house.
I now decree, “Endless hot showers for all!”
OMG!!!!! You’re going to love it!!!! If you don’t feel well you can sit in a hot shower forever and never run out of hot water!!! It’s like heaven!!! I love ours!!!
Oh man!! How wonderful!! I wonder if they will ever come down in price? Lucky you!…or I should say, lucky Jamie.
I noticed that your former water heater was gas so I am thinking that the tankless one may be gas also. My neighbors came close to dying from a carbon monoxide leak from their fairly-new tankless water heater. Of course they don’t all leak but I would be sure I had a working carbon monoxide detector nearby.
Will do! It’s also in the garage……so, no major worries
I wish I had one!! Does the hot water take a while to come on?
It takes awhile for our hot water get hot. The people who put it in suppose to come and check it…again.
Gonna need one soon. Did Home Depot install it?
They did! But it wasn’t cheap…… luckily, We got no interest on the H-Depot card for 2 years.
You are going to love it! Expensive up front but really saves in the end. You aren’t having to keep water heated 24/7.
Very nice. I am considering one for my new home.
Do it!!! We take SUPER long showers now!
How marvelous, I’m so jealous! I am dealing with the tiny water heater issue myself right now; in my new (to me) house, the current one will not even fill one deep jetted tub full without running out of hot water!! And I live alone! Don’t think I can spring for tankless though 😦
It was a splurge…..trust me. But we have 2 years no interest on the card.
James, looking to buy one. Whats the minium pipe size from the gas meter?
