In Topic: Tankless - My plumbing supply house pooh-poohed them?

Okay, so the power company burn oil or gas or whatever at approximately 70 percent efficiency, so assuming oil at 115.000 btus in a gallon of oi,l less 30 percent is 80,000 btus give or take. Now they send it down 8 million miles of power line losing oh, I don't know, 10 percent line loss, so now we are down to 72,450 btus for the 115,000 you had to pay for. So, now we sell it to you at a profit after figuring in cost etc, I would estimate that you just paid around 7 dollars a gallon for the 115,000 btus  you would have gotten if you had just burned the oil, propane or natty gas right in your home in an ultra modern high tech new fangled 85 plus demand water heater like the rinnai continuum or even a halfway decent tank type heater taking up precious space in the utility room of your home. Electric demand heaters just plain suck for all of the reasons listed above, unless you live next door to a nuc-you-ler power plant. Just sayin...

what does the sensor ohm out at room temp? If its around 1170 ohms or so, then its probably a standard oven sensor. Back in the day there was only one sensor for all of the erc ranges that I know of.Check out the sensor ohms and get back to us. a photo would be nice too if possible.
