Tankless Water Heaters
* used in Europe since the 1970's
* save space, save energy, and never run out of hot water
* last a really long time- 20 years or more is common, as long as you perform regular maintenance
* can be mounted high to create extra space underneath
* best if done once a year (if you have a water softener and low usage you could do every 2)
* consists of a 45-minute de-scale / de-lime flush & a 5-point inspection
* cost for this service: $150 per unit for first-time customers; $105 per unit for repeat customers
* Although gas tankless heaters give you the most gallons-per-minute for a certain energy cost,
some good electric options have recently come to market

Some of our work:
removed old water heater and installed new Tankless. Was able to preserve the old recirculation system thus saving the customer a significant amount of money
installed exterior tankless in a tight spot to service a Casita
Many Problems! Hot & Cold Valves switched, safety-release valve on the wrong side, safety-release valve not attached to a dedicated pipe of proper material
Hot & Cold valves now in the correct location; difficult soldering job came out great; PVC drip line isolated & moved to the side; safety-release valve now attached to proper CPVC Pipe & on its own dedicated line
These flush-mounted exterior cabs protect against weather and look great
Re-engineering a hot-water system:
There is no way this 50-gal standard water heater could properly supply this 2-story 4,000 square foot home. And that water softener is completely undersized as well.
These are 3/4" lines, there is no way they can provide enough flow to this 4,000 square foot 2-story home that has 1.25" water supply lines at the exterior.
I knew with a 1.25" water supply coming in there had to be some large pipes in the wall- and I was right. I located 1" supply & return lines and cut out the 3/4" lines. Now we will have proper flow!
Customer has 5 people in the home (& 2 large dogs). He said he wants several people to be able to shower at once. This dual system will provide at least 18 gallons per minute which means at least 2 people can shower even if laundry & dishwasher is also running. And they'll never run out of hot water again. Stainless steel construction should last around 30 years with proper maintenance. We are coming back later to install a properly-sized whole-house water filter & salt-free water softener.
There is always a great feeling at the completion of a job well done.
Top of the line, all stainless steel pipes & heat exchanger, built-in recirculating pump, 15-year warranty on heat exchanger
put as many together as needed for unlimited power when you need it- and no wasted energy when you don't.
Put them nice and high so you can increase storage space underneath. Separate controller-keypad can be installed lower for your convenience, and most newer units are controllable through your cell phone.
remove your old water heater & platform to pick up a closet worth of space
We are constantly taking training classes to stay up to date on all the current technologies & techniques.
Point-of-use Commercial Project
old single-faucet standard tank water heater was 12 years old and not performing well; commercial faucet & drain was rotted and rusted.
New Rheem single-faucet Tankless Water Heater installed. 29Amp unit is more powerful than 15A, and makes as fast a flow as expected from standard tanks. New commercial faucet & drain; new stainless steel supply lines. Significant space savings.
ready for another 30 years of service!
