PowerStar Whole House Electric Tankless Water Heater

by Wootbot

Dear trinx01,

We’re glad we gave you a reason to stay awake. We knew that, by now, you’d probably be needing some sort of surprise to keep going with those papers. You really should have started a long time ago, you know. Mesoamerican whistling is the sort of thing you shouldn’t rush out at the last minute. Anyway, if you’re still paying attention, surprise! We dedicate the PowerStar Whole House Electric Tankless Water Heater to you.

Just like you, the PowerStar Whole House Electric Tankless Water Heater is not recommended for use in climates where average ground water temperature is less than 60°F. But unlike you, the PowerStar Whole House Electric Tankless Water Heater has a 95% efficiency rating, a control knob, and creates an endless supply of hot water. Well, maybe you can do that last one if you’ve been drinking a lot of coffee. So we’ll call it a tie.

But fun’s over, trinx. Quit goofing off! Finish those papers! If you don’t get a good job, how will you afford a house to go around your PowerStar Whole House Electric Tankless Water Heater? We’re only thinking of you.

Your friends,
