Tankless Water Heater Installations

Traditionally, the heating of water in your home has been accomplished by a hot water tank where the water is heated, stored, and then distributed throughout your house. In order to accomplish the heating of the water, natural gas or electricity is employed. While tanks are still the most common way to supply heated water throughout your home or commercial property, new modern tankless water heaters that provide on-demand hot water have gained popularity for both their space saving and energy efficiency.

Santana Bros Plumbing installs and repairs both types of water heating systems, and are happy to evaluate whether a tankless hot water system would work for your home.

While tankless hot water heating systems are initially more expensive, they only require a small amount of space making them extremely efficient for small and large homes alike.The fuel savings along with a longer life expectancy than a traditional hot water tank make on-demand water heaters more economical in the long run. They’re also a lot safer when it comes to structural failure. If a hot water tank fails, it can flood the area in which it’s located. This is something that would never happen with a tankless heating system.

How Does a Tankless Hot Water Heater Work?

A tankless water heater essentially heats the water as it passes through the system. When a faucet for hot water is turned on, the tankless heater pulls cold water through a pipe, turns on its heat source and runs the cold water through a heat exchanger, and pumps hot water to the rest of your home. This ensures all hot water is only used on-demand and as-needed.

Always be sure to trust certified and professional plumbers, like Santana Bros, to install any type of water heater. You can certainly attempt it yourself, but there are always risks when it comes to dealing with any large change with your water system. Water tends to be unforgiving when it comes to damaging your property and an unfortunate leak can cause a lot of potential damage to your home.

Pros and Cons of Tankless Water Heaters

The biggest pro of having a tankless water heater is the cost savings over time. While initially more expensive than a traditional water heater, the tankless system does not need to heat water 24/7, therefore saving you money on your energy bills. Those savings will vary from property to property and the amount of water you consume on average. Some larger properties may require more than one tankless water heater in order to keep the flow of hot water consistent.

Here are just a few of the benefits of a tankless water heater:

Energy efficient operation

Environmentally-friendly process

Longer lifespan than traditional heaters

Adds value to the property

Smaller space requirement

Lessened risk of water damage

Tankless Water Heaters Save You Money

It’s important to weigh the savings benefits against the initial cost. Not everyone can afford to pay to have a tankless water system installed, and some homes, particularly older ones, may require some retrofitting to make the plumbing system work with the new water heating system.

However, most tankless water heater owners would say the benefits and savings of a tankless water heater far outweigh the initial price tag.

So Why Choose a Tankless Water Heater?

As detailed on this page, there are numerous benefits to having a tankless water heater in your home. While it may not be the right choice for everyone, the energy efficiency and cost savings alone are worth the consideration.
