I agree. They need to define their goals. Is the point to save the most money or make the biggest impact on their carbon footprint? What kind of demand for hot water and/or for space heat do they have? Do they have a range of money they have to spend on these projects? What fuels and technologies will they be replacing?
However, it is an interesting question that will require some thought regardless of the answers.

Those are two completely different systems: one for
domestic hot water and one for space heating. So what are your friend's
goals and what are the issues being juggled?
