Tankless Water Heater Installation Cost
Water heaters have long been an integral part of a plumbing system in homes and business places. Today, more and more buyers are turning to tankless systems due to their numerous benefits. Tankless models use innovative heating elements placed near where you intend to use the water. A traditional water heater, on the other hand, requires a steady supply of power to store and heat water, which is a waste. Tankless models only heat as much water as you plan on using.
As with any installation, you’ll receive low, mid, and high offers when shopping around. It’s best to ignore the low offers, as they usually accompany shoddy work. High quotes tend to be unreasonable. The sweet spot is somewhere in the middle. At Whitten Plumbing, we price our installation services competitively. You’ll receive a good deal without sacrificing quality or efficiency. Give us a call, and we’ll provide you with a full quote of our services!
Is your family constantly running out of hot water?
Imagine your family never running out of hot water again. Wouldn’t that be nice? Whether you have a large family or occasional weekend guests, a tankless water heater will ensure that you never run out of hot water again. You’ll be able to wash dishes, run loads of laundry, and bathe the kids, while knowing there will still be plenty of hot water for you to enjoy that much-deserved hot shower or relaxing bath.
Would you like to save some money on your utility bills?
A tankless water heater can save you up to 70% on your water heating costs. Tankless water heaters are the most efficient way to heat water because they heat water only when the hot faucet is turned on. With a tankless water heater you can run multiple appliances at one time with no fear that your tank will run out of hot water—because there is no tank! Furthermore, when your home is equipped with a tankless water heater, you won’t ever have to worry about the serious flooding that can occur with a traditional tank water heater.
Could you make use of a little extra space in your basement or utility room?
Tankless water heaters take up much less space than a traditional tank water heater. Whitten Plumbing can replace your tank water heater with a tankless water heater, and you can give your wife that extra closet space she has always wanted. Most tank water heaters last between 8 and 10 years, but the average life expectancy of a tankless water heater is 20 years!
Can a tankless water heater be installed in the same place as my old tank water heater?
Yes, your tankless water heater can be installed in the same place as your old tank water heater. If there is enough combustion air flow present in your home, tankless water heaters can be installed virtually anywhere, though they are typically installed in storage areas, basements, attics, and utility rooms.
It’s always best to consult with a professional HVAC technician to find out for sure if your tankless heater can replace your old tank heater’s spot in your home. Contact Whitten Plumbing today; we can provide you with an accurate in-depth estimate and answer any questions you may have!
