overwhelmed by water heater choices - need to go tankless - help!
i am planning a kitchen remodel and need to remove a flue vent running up the back of a kitchen cabinet in the process. i did not think it would be a big deal since just the gas water heater was venting to it but it has turned into a bigger deal than i thought. i cannot just vent the same standard gas unit to the side of my house as it would require me to run really ugly piping up the side of my house to the roofline and it would be very visible from the street. so then i figured i would get a high efficiency tank and vent that to the side of the house but have heard from GC and a plumber that i do not have sufficient headroom room in the sub-basement where the tank needs to sit. so now i am faced with going tankless or the new hybrid eternal system. i am personally not an early adopter and would much prefer a tank but have learned i do not have a choice. now i am overwhelmed with choices and need help! i have a 2 bedroom 1 bath house, a 1" gas line. do i need to run another gas line? what systems do you recommend?
