First of all, this indoor natural gas water heater offers GREAT value for money. It’s much more affordable than its competitors and comes packed with advanced features. It provides a consistent flow rate of up to 6.6 GPM--perfect for any small-sized family home.
To start off, this model is the smallest one from Takagi’s line up.
It has a pretty convenient size for the capacity it offers, which makes it a great buy. You can fit it anywhere in the house because of its compact dimensions. It also weighs less than 30 lbs. This makes it a relatively lightweight option compared to other models.
Secondly, it comes with an Energy Star certificate that guarantees efficient use of energy and water. If you look at energy factors, this model boasts a high energy factor of 0.83. This means it produces a lot of hot more compared to the energy used.
This gas-powered water heater offers a consistent flow rate of up to 6.6 GPM. In our testing, it easily produced hot water to multiple water outlets at the same time.
This Takagi model also comes packed with a lot of different features that sparked our interest.
One of them is the use of thermistors that constantly monitor and regulate the water temperature. When we tried this unit out, we impressed at how well this feature worked. It greatly reduced the problem of fluctuating water temperatures, regardless of the outside temperature.
We enjoyed the remote control that shipped with the water heater because it made for simple adjusting of the water temperature to the desired level. The remote also as has advanced switches for adjusting the performance for different altitudes. The maximum altitude allowed is 6000-foot and can be adjusted using the DIP switches inside the heater.
More features of this indoor model we thought were worth mentioning include an AFR (air-fuel ratio) sensor for keeping efficiency in check and tons of safety controls.
Gas-powered products are great, but they naturally require some safety mechanisms. This Takagi model offers a lot of them. It comes with frost protection and a flame sensor. Similar to other models we reviewed, it also automatically turns itself off in case it overheats. This makes it a really good option for families who are extra careful about using such appliances indoors.
Of course, because this is a gas-fed water heater, it requires outdoor venting.
This Takagi indoor gas water heater offers great value for the money. It’s energy efficient, comes packed with useful features, has a lot of safety controls, and offers a decent flow rate.
Plus, a lot of customers we spoke to were happy with its operational longevity, which means it’s likely to work perfectly fine for years to come.
If you have a small family, this is a great option for you. For larger households, though, not so much.
