Tankless water heaters are commonly referred to as on-demand water heaters. Unlike traditional water heaters, tankless water heaters only heat up water when you need it. A tankless system works by only heating and running hot water when a hot water tap is turned on in your home. Meanwhile, traditional water heaters continuously run heat exchangers to consistently keep the water heater tank full of hot water for when it is needed.
Tankless water heaters have risen in demand due to the benefits provided to homeowners such as lower utility bills. Since tankless water heaters don’t have to run continuously to maintain heat in the water tank, the on-demand functionality of tankless heaters can increase your energy savings by over 40% annually.

Tankless water heater systems have many advantages over traditional water heaters such as:
There are important factors to keep in mind when selecting a tankless system. First, you will want to consider the cost. While a tankless water heater is more expensive than a traditional tank water heater, you will save more money on energy bills in the long run.
Our knowledgeable plumbing experts can help you choose the best tankless water heater based on your needs. Factors such as your home’s size and electrical system are used to determine the right product. Energy sources are also discussed as some sources like natural gas can be more energy-efficient and powerful.
Understanding how much hot water your family uses daily is another important factor to consider when choosing a tankless water heater. If you often have two showers running with the washing machine going at the same time, then your flow rate will be high. We want to install the right size tankless unit to meet your family’s needs.

Something that often leads to issues with a tankless water heater is hard water. This causes the minerals to build up in your hot water tank and form a blockage. This will decrease your water flow as well as bring up your energy costs. Routine maintenance services can help decrease mineral build-up from hot water.
