Is a Tankless Water Heater Good for You?
If you’ve heard your friends talking about tankless water heaters, you might wonder what all the fuss is about. After all, you’re gonna get hot water no matter what kind of system you use, right? With both tanked and tankless water heaters, you’ll get hot water in about the same amount of time– as long as it takes to get through the pipes and to your tap. But the difference is in how long you can keep getting hot water with a tankless water heater.
With a tanked water heater, as soon as you run out of water in the tank, your water is gonna start coming out of the taps cold. But with a tankless water heater, you could have your hot water on all day and never run out. Tankless water heaters also have a lifespan of around 20 years, which is about twice as long as a tanked system. Plus, they’re tiny compared to traditional systems, so you’ll finally be able to use that closet for something else.
Gas vs Electric Tankless Water Heaters
As a general rule, we recommend gas tankless water heaters instead of electric models. In fact, we like gas tankless water heaters so much that we don’t even install the electric ones (but we can repair them if you need help!). What’s so great about gas tankless water heaters? Most people in Denver, NC, won’t have to upgrade their electric panel to install a new gas tankless water heater. They’re also able to keep the temperature a lot more consistent than electric models.
Do you already have an electric tankless water heater? Don’t worry, we can still repair them when something goes wrong.
What to Expect From Your Installation
Maybe you have questions about what the day of your tankless water heater installation will look like. You can expect us to be in your home for about six hours to do the installation. We know this can be tough for you, so we’ll stay out of your way as much as possible. When you call, we’ll send out an expert to figure out exactly which water heater is the best match for your home, and they can answer all your questions. That way, you know exactly what to expect.
Once we get there, we’ll have everything we need in our truck. If you’re getting a tankless water heater upgrade, we’ll take out your old tank. Sometimes we’ll need to do some prep work before the new water heater can be put in. After your tankless water heater is installed, we’ll show you how you can change the temperature and we’ll test everything out. This is your chance to ask any more questions you have. Even if your water heater has just been installed, we’ll still recommend setting up a maintenance schedule since this will help your system run well for the next 20 years or more.
