I think my dad and I will be able to install it ourselves seeing that he is a general contractor and I have been in the HVAC industry on and off for many years
Last night when we were eating dinner at my dad’s house we heard a loud bang and then there was water dripping from the ceiling about ten minutes later. Something shorted in the hot water heater and caused a small explosion which then caused the tank to leak up in the attic. So now we have a big mess with the ceiling caving in and water all over the place. We are going to replace the water heater with a tankless hot water boiler that instantly heats the water so there is no water tank needed anymore. I don’t know why my dad didn’t put in a tankless unit from the start but maybe when he built the house they didn’t have them on the market yet. I think he is going to go with a propane boiler as the current one is electric and supposedly the propane type is a lot cheaper to operate. The heating company down the street sells them in the store so we are going to go down there later and try to pick one up. I think my dad and I will be able to install it ourselves seeing that he is a general contractor and I have been in the HVAC industry on and off for many years. I haven’t done much with HVAC work since becoming a musician but I am sure that I will remember enough to get the job done. If we can’t figure it out we can always call my friend the HVAC pro and have him help us out.
