Nothing is worse than getting into the shower after a long day only to discover that there is no hot water. If this happens to your tankless water heater, a professional plumber will come to take a look. We provide tankless water heater installation and repair. Give our team of technicians a call if your tankless system isn’t working properly.
Tankless Water Heater Installation: DIY vs. Professional
It bears repeating: Do not attempt to install a gas or tankless water heater yourself. Although these systems are extremely safe when professionally installed, they often have complex requirements for venting heat and carbon monoxide, and getting this wrong could void your warranty or jeopardize your or your family’s safety. Point-of-use electrical units, on the other hand, are typically installed by simply plugging them in and connecting the water lines.
Choosing an Installer for a Tankless Water Heater
Since installation is so important to water heater operation and safety, make sure you choose a qualified contractor. Here are some things to help you find a reliable installer:
- A licensed plumber is required for gas-powered tankless water heaters. Additionally, ensure that the plumbing company is bonded and insured.
- Request estimates from at least three contractors and inquire about their experience installing these units.
- Look for potential contractors on the Better Business Bureau (BBB) website and read customer reviews.
- Prepare all necessary documents before the work begins, including a written estimate, contract, and any applicable warranties.
Tankless Water Heater Maintenance
Tankless water heater maintenance and repair are no more difficult than typical heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system maintenance, which typically requires inspection of the heating elements. For most systems, we recommend yearly inspections, with twice-yearly checks for systems with high-temperature settings.
Advantages Of A Tankless Water Heater
You will not be sorry if you invest in a tankless water heater because you will save time, money, and headaches in the long run. Here are six benefits of having a tankless water heater:
Instant Warm Water
Tankless water heaters heat water as needed, rather than constantly heating and re-heating it throughout the day, as standard water heaters do. Their powerful burners and coils enable them to heat water and deliver it to you when and for how long you require it.
Long Life Cycle
When compared to a standard unit, the increased efficiency of a tankless water heater nearly doubles its lifespan. While this model will cost you more in the beginning, you will save money in the long run by avoiding frequent system replacements.
Because tankless water heaters are more efficient, your monthly water and energy bills will be lower. Purchasing a tankless system is an excellent way to save money on your annual energy bills.
