I’m replacing my gas water heater tomorrow. I’ve done electric water heaters before, but never gas. Any advice?

Thankless I put one in over a year ago. My gas bill dropped 20.00 a month.

Tankless are nice but either way make sure to check for leaks and make sure it is venting.

make sure your existing vent is double wall.newer heaters put out more btu than older ones and a double wall vent is required.Should be able to use your old adapter coming off your gas flex line that threads into your heaters control box.Any question should be able to google and get a video to walk you through.Best of luck and be safe

I used a tankless on my house that we just sold, but we won’t gain the benefits on this Home and it will cost close to 3x more, in addition to having to have a licensed installer for the warranty.
