Why Go Tankless?

Let's begin with the basics: what is a tankless water heater? Simply put, a tankless water heater does not store hot water in a storage tank but will warm the water when needed. This means that they offer big increases in energy efficiency compared to water heaters with tanks.

When compared to standard hot water heaters, tankless heating systems have a tendency to be more expensive (at first); however, overtime they will provide energy savings. In addition, they typically last over 20 years.

The major downside when compared to typical tankless water heaters is their inability to produce a large volume of hot water. If you only have one, small tankless water heater, it may just have the ability to provide one faucet with warm water. This may mean you are unable to utilize multiple appliances at one time.

This issue can be alleviated by mounting a bigger tankless hot water heater or by having multiple smaller units.

Is a Tankless Hot Water Heater for Me?

In this area, we will take a closer look at learning if a tankless water heater is best for you and your Raleigh home.

How Much Warm Water Do You Use?

If you do not use a lot of hot water every day, a tankless hot water heater can assist in reducing your electricity bills. If you live in a smaller house with fewer people, it may make sense to invest in a tankless water heater.

Do You Fulfill the Demands?

Tankless water heaters should be less than 50 feet away from a power source. If you use an electrical hot water heater, you need an adequate power supply while a gas unit will need ventilation.

Your Finances

As we pointed out, a tankless water heater often tends to be more expensive than traditional water heaters, with tanks. However, many companies offer the opportunity to finance your tankless heater, which may reduce your initial cash outlay.

Tankless Water Heater Installment - Raleigh Style

How will our technicians go about installing your tankless water heater? If it's a gas heater, we'll need to mount the unit onto your wall and connect water and gas lines as well as installing a flue.

If it's an electric heater, we'll need to mount it and connect it to water and electricity supplies.

Installation is fairly simple but should be done by a professional due to the potential for gas and water leaks and other serious issues.

This was my first time with 1-800-Plumber Air of Pearland. I called with a minor issue with the dishwasher drain hose and asked that a tech be dispatched on Saturday so that I could be home from work. Chad was scheduled between 8am & 10am today (Sat) and arrived just before 9am. Chad was very knowledgeable and explained to me the entire process. He also answered my many many questions about what he was doing as he was doing it. I'm a smart guy but know very little about plumbing. I felt very comfortable with Chad doing the repair. The long and the short of it, 1-800-Plumber Air of Pearland has a new longtime customer and I will request that Chad be sent if possible the next time I have a plumbing issue.
