  • What maintenance is required for gas tankless water heaters?
    Gas tankless water heaters require some maintenance to ensure they operate efficiently and to prolong their lifespan. Here are some of the maintenance tasks you should perform on a gas tankless water heater: Check the air intake filter: The air intake filter prevents dust and debris from entering the unit and should be checked periodically and cleaned or replaced if needed. Flush the unit: Over time, minerals and sediment can accumulate in the unit, which can reduce its efficiency and damage its components. Flushing the unit annually can remove these deposits and keep the unit operating efficiently. Check the pressure relief valve: The pressure relief valve prevents the unit from over-pressurizing and should be checked periodically to ensure it's functioning properly. Inspect the gas connections: Gas connections should be checked periodically for leaks or damage. Check the condensate drain: The condensate drain removes excess moisture from the unit and should be checked periodically to ensure it's not clogged. Schedule professional maintenance: It's a good idea to have a professional plumber or HVAC technician inspect and service your gas tankless water heater annually to ensure it's operating safely and efficiently. Call us to schedule! By performing these maintenance tasks regularly, you can help ensure your gas tankless water heater operates efficiently and has a long lifespan. Consult the manufacturer's instructions for specific maintenance recommendations for your unit.
  • How do gas tankless water heaters work?
    Tankless gas water heaters, also known as on-demand water heaters, heat water directly without the need for a storage tank. When a hot water tap is turned on, cold water travels through a pipe into the unit. In the unit, a gas burner or electric element heats the water as it passes through. As a result, tankless gas water heaters can provide a constant supply of hot water, as long as the demand does not exceed the unit's flow rate. The flow rate is the amount of hot water that the unit can produce per minute. The flow rate is determined by the size of the unit and the temperature rise needed. The temperature rise is the difference between the temperature of the incoming cold water and the desired output temperature. Tankless gas water heaters are more energy-efficient than traditional tank-style water heaters because they don't need to keep a large tank of water hot all the time. This can result in lower energy bills over time. However, they can have a higher upfront cost than tank-style water heaters, and installation may require modifications to the existing gas and water lines. Overall, tankless gas water heaters are a good option for households that need a constant supply of hot water and want to save on energy costs in the long run.
  • What are the benefits of gas tankless water heaters?
    Gas tankless water heaters offer several benefits over traditional tank-style water heaters, including: Energy efficiency: Tankless gas water heaters are more energy-efficient because they only heat water when it's needed, rather than keeping a large tank of water hot all the time. This can result in lower energy bills over time. Unlimited hot water supply: Tankless gas water heaters can provide a constant supply of hot water, as long as the demand does not exceed the unit's flow rate. This means you won't run out of hot water during a shower or other activity. Space-saving design: Tankless gas water heaters are typically smaller and more compact than tank-style water heaters, which can save space in your home. Longer lifespan: Tankless gas water heaters have a longer lifespan than tank-style water heaters. Tankless gas water heaters can last up to 20 years with proper maintenance. Reduced risk of water damage: With tankless gas water heaters, there's no risk of a tank leaking and causing water damage to your home. Reduced carbon footprint: Tankless gas water heaters are more environmentally friendly because they use less energy than traditional tank-style water heaters, which can reduce your carbon footprint. Overall, gas tankless water heaters offer many benefits and can be a great investment for your home. However, they do have a higher upfront cost and installation may require modifications to your existing gas and water lines.
  • What size gas tankless water heater do I need?
    The size of a gas tankless water heater you need depends on the hot water demand of your household. You'll want to choose a unit that can meet your peak hot water demand, which is typically when multiple hot water sources are being used simultaneously, such as taking a shower while running the dishwasher. To determine the size of the gas tankless water heater you need, you'll need to calculate your household's peak hot water demand. This can be done by adding up the flow rates of all the hot water sources that may be used at the same time, such as showerheads, faucets, and appliances. For example, if you have two showers with a flow rate of 2 gallons per minute (gpm) each, a washing machine with a flow rate of 2 gpm, and a dishwasher with a flow rate of 1 gpm, your peak hot water demand would be 7 gpm. Once you've determined your peak hot water demand, you'll want to choose a gas tankless water heater that has a flow rate that exceeds this demand. It's also important to consider the temperature rise needed to achieve the desired output temperature. The temperature rise is the difference between the temperature of the incoming cold water and the desired output temperature. Keep in mind that choosing a unit with too high of a flow rate can lead to higher upfront costs and energy consumption, so it's important to choose a unit that meets your needs without exceeding them too much. Consult with us to help you choose the right size and model for your household.
  • How much does a gas tankless water heater cost?
    The cost of a gas tankless water heater can vary depending on several factors, including the brand, size, features, and installation requirements. Keep in mind that while gas tankless water heaters can have a higher upfront cost than traditional tank-style water heaters, they can provide long-term energy savings that can help offset the cost over time. Additionally, gas tankless water heaters typically have a longer lifespan than tank-style water heaters, which can also provide long-term cost savings. It's also a good idea to consult with one of our plumbers or HVAC technicians to help you choose and install the right gas tankless water heater for your household.
  • How long do gas tankless water heaters last?
    Gas tankless water heaters typically have a longer lifespan than traditional tank-style water heaters, with an average lifespan of about 20 years. However, the actual lifespan can vary depending on several factors, such as the quality of the unit, how well it's maintained, and the quality of the installation. Regular maintenance, such as flushing the unit and checking the air intake filter, can help prolong the lifespan of a gas tankless water heater. Additionally, choosing a high-quality unit from a reputable brand and having it installed by a professional plumber or HVAC technician can also help ensure it lasts as long as possible. It's important to keep in mind that while gas tankless water heaters may have a higher upfront cost than traditional tank-style water heaters, their longer lifespan can provide long-term cost savings. Additionally, gas tankless water heaters can provide energy savings over time due to their on-demand heating capabilities, which can further offset their initial cost.
  • Are gas tankless water heaters more energy-efficient than traditional tank water heaters?
    Yes, gas tankless water heaters are generally more energy-efficient than traditional tank water heaters. Traditional tank water heaters store hot water in a tank and continually heat the water to maintain a consistent temperature, even when hot water is not being used. This can lead to standby heat loss, which is the heat energy lost through the walls of the tank and the surrounding environment. In contrast, gas tankless water heaters heat water on-demand, as it is needed. This means that they don't have to continually heat and store hot water, which can significantly reduce energy consumption and costs. Additionally, because gas tankless water heaters only heat water when it's needed, they can provide an endless supply of hot water, which can be particularly beneficial for larger households with high hot water demands. Overall, gas tankless water heaters can be up to 30% more energy-efficient than traditional tank water heaters. This can lead to significant cost savings over time, even with the higher upfront cost of a gas tankless water heater.
