112.5amps! 👀 I'd advise looking at your main circuit breaker to see if you might need to change your main breaker including the wiring. My house only has 100amps 😂

by not crazy old, do you mean <10 years old? or less than 10 years old and very big?

even 10 years ago, they were putting in 100-150A service in smaller homes (under 2k sq ft).



ALSO: if upgrading breaker box, you will need to upgrade meter box as well. leaving an under rated meter box is a fire hazard.

(3) 40A DOUBLE POLE circuit breakers and 8 AWG wiring! The hardware and labor alone would cost you about the same price as the unit itself

And with this kind of setup, I would think a water conditioner would be needed so the thing lasts a while..

These should be set up with a way to flush them with a descaling solution. Matt Risinger, a top notch builder and youtube educator, has good video on it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T4FaqGod3VU

Edit: That's an old video and he has an updated one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=znuACzzav_Y

Put this unit in last year. The wiring, breakers, flush valves and in line descaler definitely cost as much as the unit but it was worth it. Takes up zero space and I can nap in the shower if I wanted and never run out of hot water.

with the valves it's super easy to set a 5 gallon bucket below it and attach a submersible pump. let it run for an hour every 6 months or so and it's good.

This unit is a no brainer to install. Best bang for the buck, run the wiring yourself. Then have the electrician hook everything up. Most of the labor is running the cables. To truly get the most out the system run a duda solar water heater system. Then the tankless is only heating as needed

Prepare to set aside an extra $2000 to upgrade your service panel. And an extra $5000+ if you are on a dedicated transformer if this overloads it. And maybe even your service wire. Which, at least in California, means any home built prior to 1988 with underground service is direct-buried and will need to be dug up, put in conduit, and rewired!

As a data point, my house is 11 years old and 2,350 square feet. I have 200A service.

Just built in 2015, had to pay for upgrad to get 200A. 2200 sqft. I'd say the good builders have 200 as a minimum standard though.
