Joachim Preiss replied to Johnny Ritzo's discussion Selecting a Water Heater
"Could it be that you have a boiler with tankless coil? Boilers are for hydronic heating, furnaces are for forced air heating. Is this a single family residence? Will you live in it or rent it out? Year round use? How many bathrooms, fixtures, what…"
