Hi daviddelacruz52,

 

Tankless water heaters have several specific requirements for their installation.

 

(1) You will need a 3/4 inch gas line run to the water heater, most tank types

      use a 1/2 inch line.

 

(2) A dedicated electrical circuit is required for the water heaters electronic ignition.

 

(3) A double walled stainless steel exhaust vent is required.

 

(4) For the most effective operation with the least maintenance, a water softener

      should be installed. This will minimize mineral buildup in the water heater chamber.

 

I have included below a link to our project guide on installing a tankless gas water heater.

 

Mike,
