Modern tankless water heaters are much smaller than their older tank-using counterparts, yet these units produce endless hot water and can save you money on overall energy costs. Only a heat pump water heater offers homeowners a lower operational cost for home water heating.

The Types of Tankless Water Heaters We Service
There are two primary types of water heaters we service, including:
- Non-condensing. These units came first, and rely on heat exchangers to heat the water and then vent exhaust outside. For this ventilation, this unit requires stainless steel flue pipes to withstand that heat, which can be more expensive to install overall.
- Condensing. This type of tankless water heater extracts heat from the exhaust before it’s released into the ventilation system, making expensive stainless steel exhaust pipes unnecessary. And because that extracted heat is then used to heat incoming water, they’re much more efficient overall compared to non-condensing.
We can install, repair, or replace any size, model, or fuel type (electric or gas) of tankless unit.
The Advantages of a Tankless Water Heater
Tankless water heaters represent an evolution in design from older tank heaters.
Some of the many benefits include:
- Endless hot water. They heat water instantly, on demand. So, as long as you’re not using too much hot water simultaneously (say, two showers and the dishwasher all at once) you never run out of hot water. And you never have to wait for a massive tank of water to “recover” – that is, to heat up between uses.
- Energy efficient. Tank heaters almost always use some amount of gas or electricity to heat the water in the tank and keep it to temp. Tankless systems heat water only on demand, so when hot water isn’t being used in the home, they’re idle.
- Compact in size. Tankless heaters are also small and use significantly less space than a large tank water heater. Because of their size, tankless heaters can also be installed in small rooms, apartments, and any other spaces that wouldn’t typically allow a tank water heater.
Our Tankless Water Heater Services
Tankless Water Heater Installation and Replacement
Tankless water heaters have different installation needs than conventional units. Because of their high-powered burners, tankless heaters need to be in a well-vented space for safe operation. And depending on whether you’re switching from a conventional to a tankless unit, or upgrading your tankless, we may need to make additional plumbing adjustments.
When you hire our professional tankless water heater installers, we’ll walk you through all the steps and finish by testing the unit to make sure it’s working properly. We’ll also remove your old water heater.
Tankless Water Heater Repair
When your tankless water heater has an electrical issue, ventilation problem, broken part, or leak, we’re here to help. For our tankless hot water heater repair services, we’ll start by inspecting all parts of the unit and look for signs of damage.
Once the issue is fully identified, we’ll provide you with all potential repair options and straightforward pricing. Our goal is to make sure that all repair needs are met with your budget in mind – this includes exhausting all options before replacement is considered.
Signs Your Tankless Water Heater Needs Repair
- Hot water pressure has dropped.
- The hot water is cold or lukewarm.
- The unit itself keeps shutting off.
- Strange noises are coming from the unit.
- Leaks are coming from the unit or connected piping.
- Your hot water-connected appliances (laundry, dishwasher, etc.) aren’t working properly.
Tankless Water Heater Maintenance
Just like all other types of water heaters, tankless units should receive regular maintenance. This will ensure their longevity and prevent catastrophic failures. Tankless heaters can last up to 20 years, but need to be maintained at least once a year. If your area has hard water or your heater is set to run at a high temperature, it may need maintenance twice a year.
From tankless water heater flush service to cleaning and adjustments, we offer complete water heater maintenance with different plans to fit the budget and needs of every customer.

Tankless Water Heater Service FAQs
Is a tankless water heater worth it?
For most, a tankless water heater is a much better option overall.
- A tankless system provides endless hot water with no recovery time.
- It saves a lot of money when it comes to energy costs and space.
- They can be placed nearly anywhere in the home.
Can you tell me where to install a tankless water heater?
Thanks to their convenient sizing, tankless water heaters can be installed pretty much anywhere in your home. If you’re replacing an existing water heater, you may want to install it in the same location. But, if needed, these units can go anywhere they fit and can have proper plumbing installed, including utility rooms, basements, garages, attics, or exterior walls.
How long should a tankless water heater last?
Most tankless water heaters last between 15-20 years if well-maintained, compared to as little as six years for a tank system. Tankless water heaters last much longer because as a smaller, more efficient unit, they experience less corrosion overall, as well as less sediment buildup and leaks. While you still need to flush and maintain your tankless unit annually, its easily replaceable parts make repairs easier.
How do you know how often to service tankless water heaters?
Similar to a conventional water heater, a tankless water heater should also be serviced at least once a year. Tankless units need to be flushed, cleaned, and tested to ensure that the unit is working properly and efficiently. If you have hard water, though, you may need to flush your unit more often. Call our tankless water heater plumbers for maintenance.
