Like hybrid automobiles, tankless water heaters reduce annual fuel costs. Tankless water heaters come in a wide variety of brands, and our licensed plumbers are able to install them all.
In Antioch, most people who heat their water do so with natural gas, and gas-powered tankless water heaters are widely considered to be the best of the bunch. Electric heaters are available, but only if a 200 amp circuit is installed. The water is heated as it flows through a tankless water heater, making it a space-saving and nearly silent appliance. Unlike traditional water heaters, which have a tank that must be periodically refilled with hot water, tankless models can provide an endless supply of hot water as long as water is flowing through them. Gas costs can be reduced by 15-25% with even a simple tankless system.
Conventional storage water heaters are still the most popular type of water heating system for your home. Storage water heaters work by releasing hot water from the top of the tank. The tank is kept perpetually full by a steady flow of cold water entering through the drain at the base. Anywhere from twenty to eighty gallons of hot water can be stored in a typical home water heater. Anywhere from twenty to hundreds of gallons of water can be stored in a commercial storage water heater.
However, tankless water heaters are designed to reduce monthly gas costs and free up valuable floor space, all while providing endless hot water whenever it’s needed. In order to bring the installation of the tankless water heater up to code, it may be necessary to upgrade the existing vent, gas line, and electrical systems. Get in touch with our Antioch tankless water heater pros, and we’ll tell you what we think is best for your property.
Here are just a few of the benefits of a tankless water heater:
Over a century ago, lead pipes were standard in most new construction. When these break, lead can seep into the water supply, which is extremely dangerous for your health. Despite the fact that many older homes have been updated to remove the lead, there is a chance your home may still have them. If you have lead pipes, you must schedule a repiping service as soon as possible.
Galvanized steel is another vintage material that was frequently used in older residences. This is more common in homes built before the 1940s, but it can be found in homes built as late as the 1960s. Although long-lasting, galvanized steel can corrode, leading to water leaks or sediment in the water supply. This also requires an urgent repiping.
