How long does it take to install a tankless water heater?

Tankless water heater installation takes 3 to 10 hours for a new install or 2 to 4 hours to replace an existing tankless unit. New tankless water heater installs require upgraded gas supply lines, new venting, and a new electrical outlet.

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

Will a tankless water heater work without electricity?

A tankless water heater does not work without electricity. Natural gas and propane tankless water heaters need electricity to operate the internal PC board, ignition, and thermostat.

Is a gas or electric tankless water heater better?

Gas tankless water heaters have many advantages over electric on-demand systems.

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

How to find tankless water heater plumbers near me?

My heater went down in the middle of the night on Friday. I called these guys Saturday morning. EMCO technician came to my house on Saturday within 3 hours after I called their office. He checked my heater and the outside compressor and found that thermocouple was bad. The whole service was really honest and the price was reasonable. Tech didn’t push any extra services and was really honest with diagnostic and repair that was needed. Thank you
