Having hot water at our fingertips is not something to be taken for granted. Long gone are the days of heating buckets of water over fires to warm for a bath. But shouldn’t the days of running out of hot water also be long gone? Tankless hot water heaters may be the answer you didn’t even know you were searching for and here’s why:
Tankless hot water heaters use 30-50% less energy than standard water heaters. For the average family, that is a savings of $100 per year. Water is heated on demand, when a faucet is turned on, instead of having a tank keep 40-50 gallons constantly heated. Tankless water heaters can be electric or gas powered.
Tankless water heaters are much more compact than a standard water heater and can be mounted onto a wall. There is no large tank needed to store heated water which means no worries of the tank leaking and no tank will end up in a landfill once it needs replacing. While the tankless unit is more compact, it is best to hire a professional for installation to ensure that the plumbing is done correctly for the specific unit bought.
A traditional water heater holds 40-50 gallons of hot water. While a pre-heated water does appear to save time, time is only saved if the tank does not become depleted. Attempting to run laundry and a shower at the same time has the potential for running out of hot water. Tankless water heaters can put out 2-3 gallons of hot water per minute. With an endless supply of water, a tankless water heater can supply you with a constant stream of hot water without fear of running out. No more scheduling showers, laundry, and dishes around your water heater’s schedule.
The traditional water heater lasts for 10-15 years with a 6-year warranty. Tankless water heaters last for 20 or more years before they need replacing and have a warranty of 15 years. Even though the upfront cost of a tankless water heater is more than that of a traditional water heater, the savings per year, as well as the extended lifespan, make up for the cost difference quickly. When you consider the extra savings of not having to deal with flood repairs from leaking tanks, a tankless hot water heater is a solid investment.

I called the number and had to leave a message. Within 10 minutes someone called me back. They came out within a few hours and fixed my drain. Clay, my technician, was professional, and knowledgeable with a great attitude (especially on a hot Friday afternoon)! Fixed my problem in no time. Their service is outstanding. And prices are reasonable for the area. I would definitely use them again!
Stephanie Mellott First of all, they were ON TIME. In fact, the first visit was early! A slab leak is scary, but within the week, I was scheduled for repair. It took a matter of hours. All of the plumbers were polite and worked quickly and cleanly. When the contractor came to assess the damage to the house, he was so impressed by the lack of damage to my home that he asked me for the name of ASAP twice! Highly recommend this company and their services.
