Age old question - tank vs tankless
Hi all - asking for more wisdom please
Replacing a 40 gal gas HWH that is slightly undersized for family of 4. Has 3 full baths, laundry, Tubs are used for baths and showers. Options are 50 gal tank HWH - thinking Rheem, Kenmore, whirlpool. OR
tankless. Rannai, Noritz, Takagai.
Will be in basement, Baltimore city, Maryland (for weather and delta t), hot baths and long showers are normal.
I like the space saving of tankless and the idea of efficiency. I understand the venting cannot go up the chimney
Gas main is substantial. I know only way to make more instant is to use recirculating pump. I understand the occasional cold water sandwich
Last review of tankless brands was 2014. Looking for best option in type and brand and size.
I researched but no seems to be both objective and knowledable
please help - cold showers are a downer!
