    almost 600K for 1,600 sq ft, no garage, and no super awesome view? Isn’t that a little high?

  • Jeff

    Yes it is. And tankless water heaters are not green. Modern tank water heaters are very efficient but owners of these tankless models send tens of gallons of water down the drain waiting for hot water.

    perhaps its green friendly for the developer?? as in “$$$” green?

    An ugly box, over-shadowing its neighbor, jutting up like a pimple in on the block. No aesthetics; no attempt to fit in with the neighborhood. Looks like an eastern bloc dentist’s office.

    Tankless water heaters are more energy efficient and reduce carbon emissions because they only heat the water when it’s needed. The other benefit is you save money with tankless water heaters over time because they last longer, reducing the use of materials. You can learn more about them and how they work on the U.S. Department of Energy’s site. Specifically here, http://energy.gov/energysaver/articles/tankless-or-demand-type-water-heaters

    Here’s a cool article about it on the dailygreen: http://www.thedailygreen.com/living-green/definitions/tankless-water-heater

    I’ll agree, it is pricey, but to be fair, green features cost more upfront but you save money over time.

    It definitely doesn’t fit in. I know and understand why that frustrates neighbors, but I’m going to play devil’s advocate. I’m a sucker for variety. I personally think it would be awesome if all neighborhoods were filled with houses that weren’t similar to each other.

    I can confirm that TONS of water was wasted when I had one of these. It took forever to get warm. If I had to guess, I would say 2-3x as much water went down the drain than with a tank.
