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.

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 - New York Style

How will our engineers 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.

Emanuel came out to inspect why our commode was not flushing properly. After an inspection he describer the options. Since the commode was over 40 years old we picked the option to replace the commode with a new one. He Asked several questions about what we would like and the showed us two options. We picked the one that we liked and he obtained the commode from the ware house and installed it the same afternoon.. He completed the installation and did a great clean up of the area and answered answered all of our questions. I fully recommend Emanuel and 1-800-Plumber of Pearland
