Tankless Water Heaters Sacramento

Running out of hot water while you're all soaped up in the middle of a shower is an unforgettable experience, and one that you certainly don't want to repeat. Fortunately, a tankless water heater can help.

How Traditional Water Heaters Work

Consider the following. With a typical water heater, you've got a 50+ gallon storage tank and you're spending energy all day every day keeping it hot so you'll have hot water when you need it. Unfortunately, if someone takes a particularly long bath or shower, it can take time for the tank to reheat the water. Plus there's always the concern that it may leak, or be clogged up with sediment that's robbing the tank of energy efficiency. Tankless water heaters are designed differently to approach this problem.

How Tankless Water Heaters are Different

Tankless water heaters only heat water when you need it, saving up up to 50% of your heating costs. Because there's no actual tank, there's no worry about sediment build-up or leaks.

When you turn on the hot water tap, the system detects that water is coming into the heater, and a signal is sent to the control panel to start heating the water. If your Sacramento tankless water heater is gas-powered, the control panel will turn on a fan that brings in outside air and opens a valve that lets gas in while igniting the burner. This traps the heat and transfers it into the water that moves through the tubing. This superheated water is then tested by the temperature sensor. If it doesn't meet the required setting, the control panel adjusts the gas valve and mixing valve to help it reach the right temperature. Excess exhaust goes through the outside vent. It sounds more sophisticated than a traditional tank and technically it is, however at its core, it's a cycle of heating water when it's needed, ensuring that the water isn't scalding hot, and then sending it where it's needed when it meets that criteria.

Tankless Water Heater Installation in Sacramento

You'll also be glad to know that if you're having a new home constructed in Sacramento, you have a wide range of new water heaters to choose from, complete with time and energy-saving features you'll love. We'll help you choose a Sacramento water heater that perfectly fits your needs.

There are five main types of water heater that can be installed. Many people don't know the difference between them until they need one. Even then, the choices can be overwhelming -- do I buy a high efficiency water heater? A gas-heated water heater? A storage tank water heater? Each one has its own pros and cons, but generally speaking, among the two most popular types, we have:

Sacramento Tankless Water Heaters Cost

The cost of a tankless water heater depends on the output level and range from $170 for a small gas-fired tankless water heater up to $2,00 or more for the type that can simultaneously supply showers. Generally speaking, tankless water heaters have an average cost of around $1,000.

Electric tankless water heaters cost around $90 for the smaller units and $900 for the larger ones. There are also installation costs, since it's not just a matter of swapping out an old tank. Now, with that being said, it's also worth noting the considerable savings that can add up over time in terms of fuel costs. It's easy to see how a tankless water heater can pay for itself with its improved efficiency.

How Long Do Tankless Water Heaters Last?

A gas-powered tankless water heater can last up to 20 years or more, while an electric model tends to last around 7-10 years. It's a good idea to have an annual tankless water heater maintenance, which includes changing water filters and ensuring that the burner is working properly. If hard water is a problem, it's a good idea to flush the system with vinegar to prevent minerals from building up and decrease scale build-up. If you have a problem,We also offer repair services and water heater service.

What Are the Benefits of Owning a Tankless Water Heater?

There are several reasons you'll want to own a Sacramento tankless water heater. For one, they're compact. If space is at a premium, you'll love how much more room you have now that there's no clunky water heater tank in the way. Plus, they're safer than conventional water heaters, and easy to winterize as well. With all of these benefits, you may be wondering if tankless water heaters have any drawbacks.

Are There Any Drawbacks to a Tankless Water Heater?

It's important to note that although you will see savings on your electric or gas bill, it will take time to see the payback. In addition, tankless units may not be the best option if your water system is particularly plagued by a slow flow. However, for the majority of people, the pros vastly outweigh the cons, making now a great time to invest in extra savings for your home.

We bought a fixer upper last November, and had West Coast Hydronics & Plumbing do a ton of work for us. They say to never try to do plumbing yourself, and after seeing (and hearing about) the work that Roman and his team did on our home, I couldn't agree more. Save yourself the headache, and hire WCHP to take car of your plumbing needs. They are dependable, and get the job done right-the first time! For those interested in the details: we had them add 1/2 a bathroom, move the laundry hook-up, relocate the main water shut off valve, hook up the double and single bathroom vanity, install 2 toilets, and a new kitchen faucet with a garbage disposal and an ice maker hook up. We are very pleased with the quality of the service and work provided, and will recommend WCHP time and time again.
