Tankless Water Heater Service & Installation in
St George, Utah
We service and repair tankless water heaters.
A traditional water heater continuously heats water in the tank, regardless of whether it is being used. By comparison, the newer tankless designs heat water only when there is demand for it. Less stored water to heat means less cost—and let's not forget, a more compact, wall-mounted design.
Energy Savings / Operating Costs
What you're saving is in not having to spend money on standby heat, meaning you're not wasting money heating water in a tank that's just sitting idly waiting for someone to need hot water. Tankless systems provide that hot water on demand, instantaneously, when you need it, so you don't have to waste energy heating unused water. You're also not losing heat that's idly sitting in a tank that, while insulated, is still going to lose heat and require constant reheating.
Rod was very knowledgeable and honest. He informed us of our options and did extras to get the job done. He was reliable and professional. Rod was also very quick to respond to us even when it wasn't convenient. Amazing service.Dana Moody in Saint George, Utah
While a typical tank water heater is supposed to last 10 to 13 years, tankless water heaters are estimated to last up to 20 years. If you're planning to stay in your home for a while, that's a hefty replacement fee you're saving. Even if you're not going to stay in your home for that long, it's nice to pay it forward towards the overall cost savings of home ownership.
Even if you weren't concerned about saving money and energy, one of the big advantages of tankless water heaters is the potential space savings. Traditional water heaters with 40 to 60 gallon capacity are generally around 60" tall and 24" wide. That bulky metal tank can take up precious real estate in a home where space is at a premium. A tankless water heater, in comparison, might be the size of a large computer, perhaps 20" wide by 28" tall and just 10" deep.
A big tank water heater that stores 40 to 60 gallons of hot water at a time will keep your showers, laundry, and other hot water needs properly satisfied for quite some time. Modern tanks reheat additional supply quite quickly as well, so you'll quite likely never run out of hot water when you need it. A tankless water heater has a throughout limit, able to supply a few gallons of hot water at all times but also at a time. So if you have a large family and everyone's taking a shower, doing the laundry and dishes at the same time, a tankless water heater might not be up to the task or suitable for your family's particular needs.
Instantaneous Energy Requirement
A traditional gas water heater might use 30,000 to 50,000 BTU of natural gas or propane while it's heating up your water. A tankless water heater might require perhaps 150,000 to 200,000 BTU to do the same as it heats up your water on demand. Sometimes this high BTU requirement isn't possible. If you consider switching to electric instead of gas, you'll need to be sure that your electrical system is up to the task.
