Tank-vs-Tankless-Image-1Is a tankless water heater right for me?

If you are interested in only paying to heat the water that you use, never running out of hot water again or going green then a high efficiency tankless water heater is a good option for you.

How long do tankless water heaters last?

Tankless water heaters are designed to last two to three times longer than a traditional tank storage heater. This is because their internal components (the tubing and heat exchanger) are typically made of stainless steel or K grade copper. Plus, you don’t have a steel tank just waiting to rust out

What other benefits are there in switching to tankless?

  • Unlimited hot water
  • Space saving design
  • Advanced technology allowing for up to 98% energy efficiency
  • Typically 30% more energy efficient than a tanked storage unit
  • Reduced water heating costs up to 50%
  • Increased lifespan due to stainless steel and K grade copper heat exchanger
  • Digital control panels that allow for precise temperature adjustment. Grandchildren coming over? Drop the temperature down so no one gets burned!

How large is a tankless water heater?
A tankless water heater is roughly about as large as a man’s torso. The unit will mount onto the wall and we will run the water lines, gas lines, condensate lines and venting pipes from the unit on the wall.

Is it worth it to switch from tank to tankless?

Our clients LOVE their tankless water heaters and you will too! We have put together this cost of ownership analysis to help put the numbers into perspective.
