I get all my hot water from it in the winter. It heats the water in a couple of days of good burning to 140F and gets as high 180F at times. (Great for washing dishes in the dishwasher!) I could insulate the tank better than it is now to retain the heat longer but I never run out of hot water with it unless I leave for the weekend or don't burn for a few days.

All in all it cost about $200 in parts including the tank. (Found in newspaper ad) It saves me $10 in electric five months out of the year.
