LESLIE: Fred has got a plumbing question. Let’s see what we can do for him.
FRED: Yes. I live in a 1933 house and I installed a tankless water heater a couple of years ago.
FRED: My primary complaint is in the winter time not being able to get hot water in any kind of immediate fashion when I want to wash my hands and the water is really cold.
FRED: And the plumbing to the house is such that it takes quite a while for the hot water to reach all the different faucets.
TOM: OK, the tankless water heater is not going to solve that problem. That’s a problem of the distance between the water-heating appliance – be it a tankless water heater or a tank water heater – and the actual fixture.
FRED: I guess that’s what I’ll have to do to remedy the situation.
TOM: Alright, Fred. Thanks so much for calling us at 888-MONEY-PIT.
