Benjamin Franklin Tankless Water Heaters Installation of Davenport has the professional expertise necessary to install these exciting new heaters and to help you save both money and time.

Choosing a tankless water heater can involve several factors. One is groundwater temperature: if you’re working with colder water in your area, your unit will need to be more powerful.

Another factor is flow: A lot of people end up underestimating how much water they need because they’re not accustomed thinking in terms of gallons per minute. A professional recommendation from a Benjamin Franklin plumber can help you make sense of your requirements and which particular model of tankless water heater best fits your home.

How do tankless water heaters work? They’re different from conventional water heaters, which store up hot water. As soon as you use more than fits in the tank, you’ve run out of hot water. A tankless water heater, on the other hand, heats water on demand. Once the hot water is turned on, water flows through the heating element, the burners are turned on, and the water is heated as it flows to your faucet.

With a gas tankless water heater, those burners are powered by gas, and the unit may even come with an oxygen depletion sensor that can detect carbon monoxide. An electric tankless water heater is another option, and if you’re trying to decide between gas and electric, we can also help you with that.
