Not for big homes- 6.6 GPM at 45+ degree F, so if are thinking of serving a home with 6-10 than it is not suitable for it.
Solution- 6.6 GPM at 45+ degree F is not bad.We calculate the GPM to find out the maximum capacity a water heater can handle at a time. In general, a shower head can maximum have 2.5 GPM. So whether it is a one man’s home or many if no more than 2 shower head is busy your heater will not let you down. So 2-3 bathroom houses can use this one.
Installation expensive- Warranty will be void if you install it yourself. Again paying for a plumber who is certified by Takagi group is hard and expensive.
That is true but Takagi did not make it impossible for you to do it on your own. Manuals are detailed and easy to understand. So if you are trading off between future unseen repair cost with professional installation cost and ready to give up warranty you have the right resources within reach.
Takagi water heater reviews
Q-Mine is a family of 5 will it do?
Ans- Depends on your inlet temperature. If it is more than 40 degrees F than yes it is capable to do function between 2-3 applications.
Q- What to do if it takes longer to deliver hot water between features?
Ans-The time a heater takes to deliver hot water to fixtures depends on the length of piping between two fixtures. The bigger the pipes, the longer it will take to get hot water. Use a water recirculation system or try to set it as near as you can from the fixture you want fastest hot water too.
