Are Tankless Water Heaters Worth the Cost?

Instant Hot Water
If your water heater is aging and needs to be replaced, you may want to consider the benefits of switching to a tankless water heater. Providing you with all the hot water you need, a tankless upgrade will mean that you will never run of hot water again. An energy efficient alternative to storage tanks, these units are available from Indoor Comfort Services and are well worth the investment.

Single Point & Multipoint Heaters

If you tend to wash dishes and work at the kitchen sink throughout the day, you might want a point-of-use water heater. Perfect for heating the water you will use right at the sink, this type of tankless water heater reduces your energy usage by providing hot water only when and where you need it most. You will also use less water because you won’t have to wait as long for hot water to arrive at the sink.

Whole house water heaters are ideal when you want hot water on demand at every fixture. Because these units serve your entire plumbing system, you can be assured that you will have all the hot water you need for showers, washing clothes, and cleaning around the house.

Special Considerations

Requiring specialized plumbing installation, a tankless system does not simply replace your existing tank. Additional venting is required for safety, and the units must be properly supported on a wall with the main water lines. Depending on your current home layout, the alterations could be extensive, so you should allow extra money for the installation as well as the unit itself.

Substantial Savings Now & Later

While tankless systems cost more for a Sacramento plumber to install, they also help you save money in several ways.

  • Studies show that a tankless heater will lower your water heating expenses by up to 35%.
  • With fewer parts and no glass liner to break, they also require fewer repairs.
  • They are also more durable and can last twice as long as a traditional tank model.

These reasons make tankless units an attractive choice for the savings they will provide you in the future.
