Electrical requirements for tankless water heater

Page 2 of 2  


assuming your delt T is in F degrees I get 19.8 kW
using 3.785 kg per gallon and a specific heat of 4.187 J/g K
it is interesting at $0.15 per kW hour it costs about 5 cents a minute to take a shower.
also a 45 deg F rise is a pretty cold shower, need more like 70 F rise, 50 to 120...no?
