    Still young and ready to work!!

    Anyone have some problems with their equipment let me know.

    I also specialize in commercial refrigeration, so if anyone owns a restaurant or other food service company I can help you out as well.

    I'm on the plains in Boulder County. I have to replace my furnace (home built in 89; original furnace, Lennox G16 Conservator III), and have been scolding myself for pushing things.

    I'm pretty busy through Monday, but this is a placeholder to remind me to talk with you. I'd like to increase energy efficiency (I believe I'm at 80% now with the current furnace) but can't spend a stupid amount of money chasing a couple percentage points in efficiency.

    Do you have any experience with the tankless water heaters like the Rinnai? I've been thinking about getting rid of the hot water tank and it wouldn't hurt having someone give me some ideas on what my options are.

    I actually went to a Rinnai condensing boiler class. I would have to see what type of options there are for domestic hot water.

    In my limited experience with tankless heaters I have seen them to be very expensive. We're talking thousands of $$$ installed compared to $750 for a tank water heater installed. The cost gets very large if you go up to a 90% efficiency. You start getting into different venting requirements with those.

    The tankless is good if you use alot of hot water for instance a large family or a commercial application.

    The rinnai condensing boilers are very high maintenance also. Unless you are using a lot of hot water and/or have some money to spend, I would recommend a standard tank water heater. There are also high recovery tank water heaters that are better on the pocket book when compared to the tankless.

    I could shop around for some tankless options and see just how much they cost.

    Thousands... Too rich for my blood.

    I appreciate the information. My hot water tank is still working but I know nothing lasts forever. I keep hearing all of the hype on the tankless systems and it would be nice to get something that is efficient and takes up less space. Not worth it though in my house given the current house values.

    Hope you stay on the board. If I need AC or heating work, I won't have to flip the yellow pages.

    What would a furnace suitable for a 1400sqft house with a ~400sqft finished basement + installation run?

    When we had ours serviced a partial crack in the heat exchanger was discovered. House built in 1995 to give you an idea of the system/ducting that's in place currently.
