Tankless Water Heater Services
Tankless water heaters are cost-effective, energy, and space-saving alternatives to conventional water heaters. These water heaters can be electric or gas-powered and comprise a wall-mounted unit containing a heating element that the water travels through.
When the tap is turned on, water flows through the unit and is warmed by the heating element. This provides on-demand hot water. Gas-powered tankless water heaters need a vent tube for fumes, while electric tankless water heaters do not need ventilation.
Advantages of Tankless Water Heaters
There are many advantages to using a tankless water heater. There is no need to wait for a tank to fill up. You never have to worry about running out of hot water during a shower or while washing dishes.
The on-demand system of tankless water heaters also saves energy because there is no tank. The water heats on an as-needed basis and doesn’t need to be heated when not used.
Tankless vs. Traditional
Compared to traditional tank water heaters, tankless water heaters can limit the water’s flow rate. Electric tankless water heaters have an advantage flow of 2-5 gallons per minute. Gas-powered tankless water heaters, on average, have a higher output.
Depending on how much water your home or business uses and how big your tankless water heater is, you can save 8% to 34% more energy than a traditional water heater.
Tankless Water Heater Installation & Replacement
Tankless water heater installation depends on several factors, such as local building codes and whether you will use electric or gas power. If your tankless water heater is outdated or has significant damage, it is time to upgrade or repair it. Here, it would be more cost-effective to replace the system altogether.
Replacing your tankless water heater system might cost more upfront, but you will avoid repeated repair costs. With a replacement, you will also ensure steady energy savings. If the damage is minimal, a quick service call to our plumbers providing tankless water heater services might be all you need.
Due to these delicate and sometimes dangerous factors involved with installing or replacing a tankless water heater, it’s best to have a professional perform the installation.
After installation, it’s essential to have it maintained. Regular maintenance on water heaters will help keep them working efficiently and prevent any minor issues from turning into severe ones.
The manual with your tankless water heater outlines the maintenance requirements for your unit.
Tankless Water Heater Repair
Because of the constant use, tankless water heaters repairs happen. These repairs could range from water quality changes to leaks, strange noises, and inconsistent water temperatures.
Water heater maintenance can also help prevent many of these issues, but since water heaters are usually out of sight, it’s sometimes easy to forget to check on them.
