What size tankless water heater do I need for 22000 square feet

Asked by Dc July 5, 2020
1
Answer

Dc, if you truly meant to write 22,000 sq. ft., we are not going to be able to help you. At 22,000 sq. ft., you will require a commercial system that will run in-series with multiple units and will be gas fired. However, if you accidentally added an extra zero and intended to write 2,200 sq. ft., the question is more around your potential for simultaneous hot water load usage than it is about sq. ft. The WH27 with 27kW of power will handle two showers simultaneously (perhaps three if you are on the Gulf Coast (due to high ground water temperature there). In most cases you can have a single shower going and other standard loads at the same time without issue. One potential limitation is a shower plus the activation of a Hot water only clothes washing cycle. Clothes washers demand a strong Hot Water load when filling up the basin with only Hot water.

Does there need to be a filter in front of this water heater?

Asked by Bloper March 25, 2020

Answers

Yes. I used a whole house filter. That helps screen out impurities like rust in pipes or sediments before water goes into and thru the heater.

Can this unit be installed outdoors?

Answers

The model WH27 is an indoor unit only.

Is a ac disconnect required if so 30 amp or 60amp ?? I don't see a 40amp disconnect ??

Asked by kdog2019 August 30, 2019
1
Answer

For the model WH27 the use of a disconnect is going to be dependent on the individual application and local code requirements. This unit requires 120 Amps so you will likely use 3 separate 40 Amp 2-pole circuit breakers (or a single 120 Amp. But qty. three 40 Amp is more common.).

Is this good for a shower a bathroom sink and a kichen sink

Answers

This should be fine. If you are in a northern climate with colder than average ground water temps and you use all three applications simultaneously, at full flow rate, and maximum hot water - you may see a reduction is efficiency at output at that moment. For most homes, this is an unlikely event.

I bought this heater to replace an older Bosch water heater. It was easy to do as the plumbing and electrical penetrations were almost identical. The newer unit works better than the older one. I was able to perform the replacement without hiring a plumber or electrician.
