Tankless Water Heater Installation
VANCOUVER WA | CAMAS WA | WASHOUGAL WA
Tankless water heaters are increasingly becoming more popular as people look for a way to improve energy efficiency and live a more environmentally friendly lifestyle. Tankless water heaters only heat the water when it is in use instead of heating stored water in a tank. This method of on-demand heating reduces energy consumption because you are not heating water that you are not in the process of using. The type of tankless system that you would use in your home depends on the utilities you have running to your home as well as its size.
The plumbers of C.H. Kruse Plumbing in Vancouver WA can not only help you decide which water heater is right for your home, but they are experts at water heater installation services.
Gas Tankless Water Heater
The gas tankless water heater system has been rated by the government as performing 25 percent better than the standard gas-heated tank system. This is enough improvement that your average homeowner will see savings between $100 and 200 per year. It also qualifies for the Energy Savings rebate on your federal tax return.
The water heater installation should be completed by a professional plumber for safety reasons. Working with a qualified and experienced plumber will also help you select the right size of tankless heater for your home.
Electric Tankless Water Heater
An electric tankless water heater has been shown to average between a 10 and 15 percent better performance than the tank style of the water heater. This can produce a savings of $75 to 150 per year on average. If you use a lot of water, your savings can be much higher.
A plumber should be called for an electric water heater installation. These water heaters have particular electrical needs, and a professional plumber will ensure that your home is wired correctly for this type of appliance and that the installation of the water heater is up to building code.
Having a tankless water heater will save you money over time and is more environmentally friendly. If you have a question about water heaters, or would like to schedule installation services, contact C.H. Kruse today!
