RE: [hreg] Advice, please
I think they are referring to what are also called “tankless water heaters”. You’ll find lots of information if you Google that phrase.
I have one, mine is propane. If you use a gas water heater and plan on
replacing with a tankless, be warned, the tankless uses a 5 inch flue
and an ordianary water heater uses a 3inch. It is a big expense that no
one warns you about until you have the thing home. We did our own install.
My tankless saves about 30% on my fuel bills. It means that it will
take over 10 years to pay for itself, if that was all I was doing. I am
putting in solar batch heater and I will keep the tankless to run on the
10 or so days a year that my solar won't operate. It is much more
convenient to use this way than a conventional which are a pain to drain.

For $399 it might be a good way to start, if for nothing else, to get you through a hurricane. It looks like they are detachable from the pole as well, so you could take them with you when you move. http://www.arizonaw indpower. com/450_Watt_ Wind_Generator. php

- Coincidentally, the current issue of "Solar Today" (white Prius on the cover)
has a good article on general aspects of solar water heaters, world-wide. If
any of you don't already get this magazine, this is a good time to pick it up in
a bookstore and then subscribe to it.
