Kaylie E. says, "I needed a new door installed last minute in a space thats very small and the door space is a lot smaller than the average door space it has to be a custom sized door so I knew I needed help and Ryan not only came through with the job, but also exceeded my expectations. From the initial measurement of the door space to the final installation, Ryan was professional, efficient, and had a great work ethic. He arrived on time and was able to assess the space quickly and accurately. He then returned with a new high-quality door cut to size and already painted the next day. Ryan's attention to detail was evident in his work. He took the time to ensure that the door was installed perfectly before finishing the job. His craftsmanship was top-notch and I am beyond satisfied with the end result. Not only was Ryan skilled at his work, but he also had a great attitude throughout the entire process. He was friendly, easy to communicate with, and made sure to clean up the work area before leaving. I highly recommend Ryan for your handyman needs and most definitely will remember him for any future jobs I may need. His dedication and expertise are unmatched and I am grateful for his last-minute help. Thank you, Ryan" Read more

Who installs tankless water heaters near me?

Plumbing companies install gas and electric tankless water heaters. Home Depot and Lowe's also offer tankless water heater installation through their network of licensed plumbers.

What is a tankless water heater?

A tankless water heater provides hot water on demand, heating water only when needed rather than continuously using fuel to heat water in a storage tank. When a hot water tap is turned on, cold water travels through the heat exchanger in the tankless unit and is warmed instantly.

  • Whole-house tankless systems deliver hot water to all the fixtures and appliances throughout the home.
  • Point-of-use tankless models are smaller units designed to provide hot water to a single fixture or appliance.

Where to install a tankless water heater?

Plumbers can install tankless water heaters on inside or outside walls, including utility rooms, attics, garages, or basements. Tankless water heaters can also be installed in place of an old tank water heater if the area provides enough combustion air. Tankless units installed outside can freeze and needs protection from the weather, direct sunlight, rain, and bugs.

How do I know if I need a new water heater?

Signs a water heater is going out:

  • Rusty, discolored, or metallic-tasting water
  • Loud clanging, knocking, gurgling, or whining noises
  • Hot water that runs out quickly
  • Low water pressure
  • Foul odor coming from hot water
  • Low or irregular water temperature, or no hot water at all
  • Leaks at the base of the tank or around the pipes at the top of the tank

Gas tankless systems are:

  • More energy-efficient and saves $150 to $300 in annual operating costs
  • Warranty lasts up to 5 years longer
  • Provides a higher gallons-per-minute (GPM)
  • Most gas units are eligible for a $300 federal tax credit

Electric tankless water heaters are:

  • Cheaper to install
  • Easier to repair

Stanley installed a water heater that was too big to go into the utilities closet. With a little extra work, it fits. He made a return trip no charge. Have his business card taped to my water heater just in case. What more do you need to know? Give him a call he's a good guy!

While I have to call around or text to get a quote, Walter called me, and offer me a good deal. He came before the scheduled time, very nice, honest, and patient. He knows exactly what to do, and patiently explained what is the problem, and we really appreciate it. Great service, and we definitely will use his service on our next projects.
