I am not a gasfitter, but IMO, it would seem simpler to use gas, if it is available, rather than upgrade the electrical.

I have no problen with gas.... but only 50 amps for a service? Jessie has already stated that breakers are tripping quite often... before the heater was installed.
She needs an upgrade IMO. What is she to do pitch the 300 dollar heater and eat the installation costs.

Then go out and buy a 700 to 900 dollar gas tankless then another 300 to install it?

She has the heater already installed just needs a new cable, breaker and disconnect.

Cost wise she is in a pickle as there isnt a cheap way out of this no matter gas or electric.
