    What Is a Tankless Water Heater?

    Traditional water heaters hold and heat water within a storage tank. As you shower, do dishes, or wash your hands, the tank releases the heated water and slowly refills. Unfortunately, many traditional water heaters cannot keep up with long showers or households with multiple people, causing the tank to run out of hot water mid-shower.

    Tankless water heaters, on the other hand, heat water as you need it by instantaneously heating any water that passes through the device. Using this method, you will never run out of hot water because you don’t have the concern of the tank emptying. Tankless water heaters also offer less wasted energy since they only heat the necessary amount of water.

    Tankless Water Heater Benefits

    By opting for a tankless water heater installation, you can enjoy the following:

    • Enhanced comfort from on-demand heating
    • Reduced energy costs by as much as 8% to 34%
    • Less wasted water as you won’t need to wait long for your shower to heat up
    • Space-saving advantages by ditching the large holding tank
    • A longer lifespan with fewer repair and maintenance needs
    • Increased safety with reduced risks of tank blowups

    Helping You Decide Between Gas and Electric Tankless Water Heaters

    You’ll have numerous options to choose from when selecting your tankless model. Our team will help you weigh all your considerations. One of the biggest decisions to consider is whether you’d prefer a gas or an electric unit.

    Here are the pros and cons of each:

    • Gas: Gas tankless water heaters can be cheaper than electric models, though if your home requires a gas line upgrade, the unit can be costly to install. Gas operates more efficiently than electricity and offers reliability during power outages.
    • Electric: Electric water heaters cost more in general but have a longer lifespan and fewer safety concerns. Electric models come in compact sizes and offer the easiest maintenance and repairs.

    FAQs

    Do I Need To Hire a Professional To Install a Tankless Water Heater?

    Yes, you must hire a professional to install a tankless water heater, as the replacement process requires complex plumbing knowledge, pipe soldering, gas connections, and more. A highly skilled and trained professional must be able to upgrade or adapt your existing plumbing lines to fit the new water heater while adhering to local codes.

    Do Tankless Water Heaters Require Special Gas Lines?

    Tankless water heaters often require special gas line adaptations, depending on what your home currently has in place. Most units require ¾-inch gas lines to receive the necessary fueling for instantaneous heating, though many homes only have ½-inch gas lines. In this scenario, we would upgrade your home’s gas line and any plumbing to fit the new tankless water heater.

    How Long Can Tankless Water Heaters Last?

    Tankless water heaters typically last around 15 to 20 years, depending on how well they were installed and maintained. For reference, standard storage tank water heaters only last around 8 to 12 years. If you want to enjoy this added longevity, call Grasshopper Heating & Cooling at (518) 241-5929 to schedule your tankless water heater installation.
