Thank you, Larry. I’m not sure how they calculated the load when they did the renovation, but we have 5 full bathrooms (2 normal bathtubs & 1 large tub)… the plumber is suggesting 75 gallons set at a higher temperature with mixing valve to deliver hot water at the correct temperature.
I’m not opposed to that necessarily, as long as it’s low maintenance. My main concern is whether to go with a natural draft or power vent given our chimney height. Do you have any insight on that by chance?
