    Default On-demand hot water heaters for the barn?

    Can anyone recommend an on-demand hot water heater that wouldn't break the bank? I would mainly be using it for occasional bathing.

    There are several threads on this topic recently--the name of the one we have escapes me but it's on those threads. They are wonderful.

    www.tanklesswaterheaterguide.com is helpful.

    STGa, don't pay the equestrian markup! Those things are available at hunting/camping suppliers for a fraction of the cost.

    Why do you want to heat hot water? Isn't it already hot?

    Lol! I saw the title and thought "Wouldn't that be a kettle?".

    Here you go. I recommend the EX 75 or EX 95. Both take 240V. You cannot heat above 1/2 gallon per minute flow rate with anything that only takes 120V (a normal elec. circuit).

    Ira Woods Wholesale Plumbing on the internet (google it) has good prices on these - around $200. You will need a plumber. Hope this iw what you meant, not just a hot tank.

    Edited to say: These units are for ONE warm water horse washing hose, not to replace a hot water heater for a whole building.

    We got a Stiebel Eltron Tempra 24 from Plumberscrib.com (the cheapest we could find online). We LOVE it!!!! The only downside to the tankless water heaters is that they pull a lot of amperage, so you definitely need to plan for them. They are hard to install after you have everything built due to the amperage- that's why you don't see folks add them to their houses after the house is already built. We had a 200 amp panel built into our barn to handle the water heater, ceiling fans in 4 stalls, and lights.

    Ah, Stiebel, that's the brand we have, too. Thanks to my gearhead hubby, our barn was built with a 200 amp service, too. More than enough for hot water and then some!

    I have a Stiebel, too.

    Note to folks interested in these - mine is electric and required a 50amp circuit and heavy wiring.
