Tankless Water Heaters

Are you looking for a way to get more out of your water heating? If it’s time to replace your water heater and you want your new system to be compact, efficient, and reliable, you may want to think about installing a tankless water heater!

Unlike conventional water heaters, which hold hot water 24/7 in a large storage tank, tankless water heaters heat water on demand. The result? You’ll always have hot water when you need it, and won’t pay for it when you don’t! In fact, switching to a tankless water heater can save you as much as 40 percent on your energy bills!

What are the benefits of tankless water heaters?

Rather than store water in a large tank, tankless water heaters heat water as it runs through the pipes toward its destination: the shower, the sink, etc. When you open a hot faucet, the burner fires up and heats water as it passes through the heat exchanger. The heated water then travels down the pipes to the faucet (or shower or dishwasher or wherever it’s needed). Once you close the faucet, the heat exchanger goes into standby mode—no wasted energy.

Other benefits of tankless water heaters include:

Unlimited hot water – conventional water heaters can hold around 40 – 60 gallons of hot water in a tank. While this is usually enough to meet most people’s needs, everyone has a story about how they were getting ready for work and all the hot water was gone!  A tankless water heater eliminates this problem, heating all of the water that passes through the heat exchanger before it gets to the faucet or shower.

Higher efficiency – since they need to be on call at all times, conventional water heaters need to keep all of the water in the tank hot 24/7. Worse, every time you use hot water, the tank is refilled with cold water which then needs to be heated. Tankless water heaters only heat water on demand, which means they operate much more efficiently.

Less risk of scale – when hot water sits in one place for long periods of time, the minerals dissolved in it start to settle and turn into scale. This scale can coat the burner elements and other components of your water heater, drastically reducing its heating efficiency. Since a tankless water heater doesn’t store water, this issue is completely eliminated.

No scalding hazard – leaking hot water heaters create a major risk of scalding. Since tankless water heaters don’t store hot water, this problem is completely eliminated.

Longer lifespan – traditional storage tank water heaters typically last up to 10 years. Tankless water heaters, on the other hand, can last up to 20 years or more!

Why Call R.V. Carey’s for Tankless Water Heater Services?

Fast and Friendly Service

When you call for a plumber, you’re looking for more than plumbing services—you want the peace of mind that comes from knowing the plumber you hired is trustworthy and polite. In addition to being background checked and drug tested, all of the technicians at R.V. Carey’s are friendly and courteous and can answer any questions you may have regarding your plumbing system.

Time and Materials

Many plumbers charge a flat rate for each job, regardless of how long it takes. We prefer to charge based on time and materials—here’s why. First, no two plumbing jobs are the same. Even a seemingly simple leak repair can vastly differ from another leak repair! Since a job may take longer for one person than another, a flat fee may lead you to overpay for your service. Next, we feel we can provide a better service by encouraging our technicians to work carefully instead of rushing between jobs. By charging time and materials, we’re able to ensure that you get the highest quality of service possible while still sticking to your budget.
