The Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters
It’s easy for us to replace your old tankless water heater with another tankless water heater. It’s a little more work to go from a tanked water heater setup to tankless, but it’s something we do every day. Whether you’re replacing your old one or installing one for the first time, it’s something we can handle. Here are a few of the benefits of installing a tankless water heater.
They Use Less Energy
It takes a lot of energy to keep 50 gallons of water at 120℉. It takes less energy to heat the water as you need it. That’s why you’ll be using around 34% less energy when you have a tankless water heater.
A tankless water heater is even smaller than a box of Christmas decorations. And they can be installed almost anywhere, even outside. If you have a small home, freeing up that much space can be a big benefit.
They Last Longer
Once you install a tankless water heater, you won’t have to do much more than regular maintenance and occasional repairs for the next 20 years. These systems last a long time.
You’ll Get Unlimited Hot Water
When you have a tankless water heater, you get unlimited hot water. All that means is your water heater will keep heating water and sending it through your pipes as long as you have the hot water running.
Different Types of Tankless Water Heaters
As if it wasn’t enough to try to decide between tank or tankless, you’ll also have to decide on gas or electric tankless water heaters. We’ll make it a little easier for you. At Morris-Jenkins, we only install gas systems. We like the way they run and they’re more practical for homes in Harrisburg. Electric tankless water heaters need a lot of electricity to run and they put too much strain on the electrical panels that most people in the area have.
What to Expect From Your Installation
Sometimes knowing what to expect can make a big project like a tankless water heater installation seem a lot easier. Lots of plumbers give you a four-hour window and then usually show up late. At Morris-Jenkins, we stick to appointment times. That way when you schedule an installation, you can plan your day around it. We’ll call when we’re leaving our warehouse to let you know we’re coming.
Tankless water heater installations can take a little bit of time. The average time is around 5-6 hours. If you’re getting a tankless water heater upgrade from a tanked system, it might take a little longer to get everything set up for your new tankless system. Since we have in-home estimates, you’ll know all that info ahead of time. You’ll even know some info about the plumbers that’ll be doing the installation. We’ll send you a bio so you can read up on them.
