Tankless Water Heater Installation and Repair

How does a water heater system work?

When a hot water tap is turned on, cold water flows through the tankless hot water system. The water passes through pipes inside of the system that are heated electrically or by gas burners. Although the hot water won't run out, the flow rate might be a bit limited. Tankless water heaters normally deliver hot water around a rate of two (2) to five (5) gallons per minute. Electric models tend to not have as good of a flow rate as the gas versions.

What are the benefits to a tankless water heater?

  • Endless supply of hot water. In water heaters that use a tank heater, the water inside of the tank is dispensed when it is called upon. When the tank is dry, the hot water is out. A tankless water heater warms the water as it passes through it's heating system, so the hot water supply is endless.
  • The tankless water heater takes up a lot less space than a water heater that uses a tank.
  • A tankless water heater can reduce your utility bill by 10%-50%, because you are only heating water when you need it and not keeping it heated in a tank.
