At 28 gallons the tank is full of 85 degree water which feels cool.
I don't see anything frugal in this post..... I see it as factual. Something that is sometimes lost on this site.

Although it was "gas" I replaced my last HWH at approx. 16 years (still worked fine) because I wanted something more efficient and TECO gave me a $400.00 rebate to do it. The 40 gal. gas HWH that I purchased cost only a little more than that and had electric flue dampener and electric ignition. I would like to add - I have always flushed my HWH twice a year. I write dates down on the side of the heater with a pencil.

Ever open you’re 10 to 15 year tank and see the build up?

I would bet that most people in the villages don’t even know to flush their hot water tank twice a year. Even if they were aware, they wouldn’t do it.

And while the discussion is on who would you recommend to install a water heater, someone reliable and not a rip off? At least up north I have paid in the $600 range for a 40 gallon tank to be installed.
