Re: Tankless in a pizza resturant
Well I went and looked at this job and boy does it have problems. I will just address the tank because I will be typing all night with problems with the HVAC system. The units are both on the second floor ( with no lighting at all by the way) HVAC and tank. They have a standard 40 gal that's about 15 years old. No insulation on any piping and very little insulation in the second floor. I got temp reading of 44*. Probably because the ovens were on. I explained the pros and cons of the tank less but the owner seems set on getting one. He was not concerned of a little cold water between uses. No way of piping a loop return without ripping out the ceiling above the kitchen. The owner says that they have had pipes freeze up on second floor before so I said "and a tank less will help with this how?" I am not one to turn away business but maybe you should be talking to an insulation contractor first. I tried to explain the heat loss is greater then both systems can handle even though the heating system is a mess. I am going to work up a price for him on one tankless ( because he does not want two) and a complete change out of the HVAC. I mean total replacement of everything. I hope he is sitting down when he gets his price. Also he want to do it after hours to not disturb the business. Can u say cha ching!
