Selecting a water heater for oil to gas conversion
Need advice for selecting a gas water heater for a house that is going to convert from oil to gas. The existing oil fired WH is a 50 gallon model with a 184 GPH recovery rate. I realize that that recovery rate is impossible to even get close to with a standard natural gas WH, and that's ok. The house is 4,200 ft.2, and has three and a half baths. The master bathroom has a small whirlpool bathtub. There are four occupants. The new owners are on a budget so there are not interested in one of the tankless heaters. We are trying to stay within their budget, and have narrowed it down to a 50 gal w/ a 54 gph recovery, or a 75 gallon w/ a 82 gph recovery. I hope that the 50 will do the trick, however any input will be much appreciated. thanks to all.
