Frank Slifka replied to Damien Greenfield's discussion Is there is cost saving for you in having a tankless water heater?
"Bob - just to let you know I just measured the heat off the following two lamps using an Extech 42510 heat gun. 13 watt sylvannia CFL 2700 kelvin - measured between 170 - 180 degrees. Too hot to touch. A knockoff A-19 LED from Lowes at 7 watts…"

Frank Slifka replied to Damien Greenfield's discussion Is there is cost saving for you in having a tankless water heater?
"Bob - like I asked what thermal scan do you use for temp rating? I never recommed LEDs unless you have a lot of lamps being used or change out the five most used lamps. Residential energy use of lighting is far different than commercial. In a closet…"

Frank Slifka replied to Damien Greenfield's discussion Is there is cost saving for you in having a tankless water heater?
"Bob - what thermal scan do you use to test for temperature? CFL's run between 175 and 185 degrees! Incandescents ran at over 195 to owell over 200 degrees. Turn on a CFL for 15 minutes and try to unscrew it. Then the same with an LED. I…"

"Don like I said originally - location/ location/location! The sun is not limited to Hawaii! I know in some places there is snow - poor Buffalo - and lots of overcast. Where there is a good source of free fuel - sun/wind/geothermal/boimass - then…"

Frank Slifka replied to Damien Greenfield's discussion Is there is cost saving for you in having a tankless water heater?
"The cost to make hot water is in the fuel costs! Can anyone answer why Hawaii since 2010 requires all new residential, major retrofit residential, and small commercial builds requires solar hot water? Simple - fuel costs and demand on the…"

Frank Slifka replied to Damien Greenfield's discussion Is there is cost saving for you in having a tankless water heater?
"Location! Location! plus, number of residents, plus what else is needed. If you live in an area (Florida, Texas, anywhere else in the sunbelt) solar hot water may be the way to go. We have found that electric tankless in a normal residential setting…"

Frank Slifka replied to Bob Blanchette's discussion Tankless Water Heaters... has their time finally come?
"I believe that it all depends on where you live, the cost of the power source, and what type of housing we are discussing. In south Florida, I strongly urge in single family stand alone housing, a solar hot water system using…"
