Yes, we do.
  • On-demand gas,
  • On-demand electric,
  • Tank gas,
  • Tank electric,
  • Tank solar,
  • Tank air source heat pump,
  • Tank ground source heat pump,
  • Tank wood stove,
  • Tank cosmic radiation (just keeping you on your toes)
  • Any combination of the above.
We have two hot water heaters, one on each floor (there used to be two families in our house), which will get replaced sooner or later by a hot water tank, electric with solar assist (or the other way around, hopefully). Maybe with a small heat pump to capture waste heat from ventilation. So I'd like to have a few options for hot water sources in the future.
