We have installed all tubing and wiring of the best quality. The hot water heater is a 36 gallon tank with 5 Star ratings.

The gas lines are one inch lines that are adequate for all the fireplaces to be lit at the same time as well as the gas stove being used in the kitchen without any issues of gas distribution.
