Electrician Brian Walo and plumber Shannon Neff install lots of tankless water heaters every year, and recently they installed a gas-fired one in Walo’s own home. In this thoroughly illustrated article, Walo goes step-by-step through the process, beginning with how to remove a tank-style heater and how to prep the area for the new model. He shows how to install the water and gas lines safely and how to create a vent in an exterior wall.

A photo of the installed heater has parts and connections labeled, and a full page explains piping options.
