Tankless Water Heaters 101

November 25, 2018 | Blog

Lee’s offers a wide range of water heaters for installation, including tankless water heaters. If you aren’t sure if a tankless water heater is right for you, check out what they have to offer.

Pros of a tankless water heater

Energy efficiency: One of the main reasons people lean toward a tankless water heater is the energy efficiency that it offers. Because these units do not hold a stored supply of hot water, the tankless water heater will only heat the water that you need heated, when you need it. On average, you’ll use 30-50% less energy than units with tanks, and you’ll save around $100 per year.

Size: Another selling point is the compact size of the unit. If your home is tight on space, there’s an option of mounting the unit onto a wall to save that extra floor space.

Long lasting: The long lifespan of a tankless water heater, along with the energy efficiency of it will save you money for years to come.

Cons of a tankless water heater

While the list of pros for a tankless water heater can go on and on, the list of cons is pretty short. The two main disadvantages of a tankless water heater include the upfront cost of installation and the possibility of needing an additional venting system.

Higher investment upfront: When you get your unit installed into your home, you’ll most likely need a larger unit so that it can serve your whole home. Smaller units can usually only serve a single faucet at a time. So, the bigger the unit, the larger the installation costs.

Venting system: Most tankless water heaters require a sealed vent system, which needs to be installed by a professional. This can potentially add to your installation costs.

So if you’re looking for an energy-efficient water heater option that has a long lifespan, then a tankless water heater might be the right fit for you. As the plumbers Fresno homeowners trust, we install and service high-quality models throughout the area. Call us for all of your plumbing needs.
