Tankless Water Heater Options

How is it possible to have all the hot water you want without a tank full of hot water? It’s a question many businesses and homeowners are asking more often as demand grows for tankless water heaters. Your local plumbing company, Reliant Plumbing, offers customers throughout Austin and nearby areas this modern plumbing option that can increase hot water efficiency and lower energy bills.

Tankless Advantages

Tankless water heaters provide “on demand” service versus conventional hot water heaters. Cold water flows through the heating element – fueled by gas or electric – and then into the hot water tap of a sink or shower. This is different from the conventional option where water is heated and stored in a tank. The conventional heater uses more energy because of this need for hot water storage – it must heat and store the hot water with regular use. A tankless system only heats water as it is needed – whenever a hot water tap is opened.

Tankless Water Heater Costs

The initial cost of a tankless water heater system may seem high compared to installing or replacing a conventional water heater. Once you calculate average purchase, maintenance and repair costs over the life of either option the tankless water heater system reveals its cost benefits. Storage water heaters average 10-15 years before failure and maintenance and repair costs add up over the years. By comparison, tankless water heaters are expected to last 20 years or more. Tankless system parts can easily be replaced. This helps extend use for many years beyond expectations. Tankless water heaters also lower energy costs, so this savings benefit adds up with each year of use. Regular maintenance increases length of life for tankless water heaters. Maintenance is recommended at least once each year.

Tankless Heater Installation

We recommend professional installation of tankless water heater systems. Professional installation followed by proper maintenance can increase energy efficiency and avoid costly problems. You don’t want to invest in this great system only to have it not work properly or cause damage from leaks. Work with a qualified plumbing contractor. Here are key contractor hiring tips:

Ask for references, review testimonials
Request written cost estimates
Check ratings such as Better Business Bureau
Verify plumbing license
Make sure contractor gets necessary permits
Contractor must follow local building codes
