Master Mark· philosopher and statesmen
Wise idea....I may do one soon where I remove a 80 gal electric in the middle of the house and install a tankless on the outside of the house near the gas meter. Rather than circulate the water we may install a 10 gal. Tank close to where 80 gal was and feed that 10 gal tank with the tankless.
This will free up a closet for an extra bedroom and give the homeowner endless hot water almost instantly without recirculating. The 10gal will fit perfect in a 5’ tall crawlspace and get it out of the house.
