We Install Tankless Water Heaters in Goodyear, AZ

Plumbing contractor setting up a tankless heater during an installationIf you're in the market for a new water heater, before you just go with another storage tank, look into a far more economical and Earth friendly option – the tankless water heater. While tankless heaters aren't new to the market, they have undergone some significant changes that have made them much more sensible for residential applications. Our White Label plumbers are staunch believers in this new generation of heaters, and here's why:

Hot water is only used for short periods throughout the day – 15 minutes for a shower here, 5 minutes to fill the washing machine there, a few minutes washing hands or cleaning dishes. In total, the average family of 4 only uses hot water for a maximum of 2 hours a day. That means that your traditional tank style water heater is idle for 22 hours a day. That's 22 hours that the tank is using energy to keep water warm on stand-by. We think this is a tremendous waste of energy. A tankless system only heats water when it is needed. There is no storage tank and no need to use energy while it isn't being used.

Tankless Water Heaters Make Sense

The new generation of gas fired tankless water heaters can now deliver about the same amount of hot water as standard 50 and 60 gallon heaters. This is done by placing two tankless water heaters in the home, one near the bathroom line and one near the kitchen (the two places most hot water is used). An individual tankless water heater can usually deliver up to 4 gallons of hot water per minute, which is plenty for a shower or even a shower and a faucet. The reason we suggest two separate units is to handle the times when the washing machine and dishwasher are taxing the system. With two 4 gallon per minute heaters, you'll always have enough hot water for multiple uses.

The initial cost of a dual tankless system is about twice that of a standard water heater installation. Don't let this initial cost scare you away. Tankless heaters have twice the life expectancy of standard tanks and they can cut water heating costs by upwards of 50%. The literally pay for themselves in energy savings in about 10 years.
