Get Unlimited Hot Water When You Switch to a Tankless Water Heater - We Install!
It’s a situation you’re all too familiar with: After the kids have taken their showers and running the dishwasher, there’s no hot water left for you.
It’s time for a tankless water heater. Rather than the traditional tank models, these water heaters only create hot water on demand. And because they don’t store any hot water, they never run out, either.

How Tankless Water Heaters Work
Instead of hot water standing in a tank, waiting to be run to your washing machine or your shower, tankless water heaters start heating water when you turn on the faucet or start the machine up. As the water passes through the heater, it warms up and is sent wherever it needs to be.
Tankless heaters, like their counterparts, can be powered by either gas or electric. Also like their counterparts, gas models tend to be more efficient to run.
While tankless models can produce an endless supply of water, it’s not limitless. Tankless models have a limited output, typically between 2 and 5 gallons per minute. That means you might still have trouble running the washing machine and dishwasher at the same time (but there is a solution).
In most cases, we can install a tankless water system in the place of your old water heater tank with no additional modifications. For installations in a new home, the water heater needs to be near an exterior wall to run a vent pipe to the outside.
What You Should Know About Tankless Water Heaters Before You Switch
Tankless hot water heaters can be more energy efficient than traditional models, particularly if you do not use much hot water on a daily basis. As your daily water usage gets higher, the savings drops:
Most tankless water heaters have a lifespan of about 20 years, longer than your standard water heater tank. And the parts are often readily interchangeable, making repairs less complicated.
The cost of operating a pilot light on a gas-powered tankless model varies according to the device. Do your research, or you might wind up inadvertently using more energy than you expect. However, you can look for models that have intermittent ignition devices (IIDs). These work like the ignitions on gas ranges and stoves and only come on as needed.
To save more on energy as well as reduce the strain on your hot water supply, our experts can install multiple hot water heaters at your home. They can work in parallel with each other, or you can install separate heaters for appliances such as washing machines and dishwashers.
