The Benefits of a Tankless Water Heater
If you’re seriously considering tankless water heater replacement, you may be wondering what the benefits are of upgrading to a new system. There are many! Firstly, tankless water heater systems are more efficient than storage tank systems. A tankless water heater is also called an on demand water heater because it heats water almost instantly, making it possible for several family members to use the shower without running out of cold water. They also last many years longer than conventional systems - up to 20 years! You’ll experience month-to-month savings thanks to lower energy costs from a more efficient tankless system. Finally, if you’re tight on space, tankless water heaters are a great space-saving option if you’re working with limited floor space.

How Do Tankless Water Heaters Work?
Tankless systems work differently than storage tank heaters in that water is not stored in a tank for use, instead, water is heated on demand. Cold water travels through a pipe into the unit where it is flash-heated by a burner or electric components. Proper installation and maintenance of your tankless water heater system will maximize its performance and efficiency. When you need to schedule tankless water heater service, call us.
