Tankless Water Heater Services in Southwest Florida

Want to save money on your water heating bills? Consider switching to an eco-friendly tankless water heater!

Designs for conventional water tanks have remained basically unchanged for decades. Burner technology has made them more efficient and manufacturing practices have allowed them to last longer but essentially they are the same as when they were put into service. To combat the problems that conventional water tanks experience, tankless water heaters were invented.

At Drain Nerds in SW Florida, we want to help homeowners understand their options. Tankless water heaters solve many of the problems that are presented by water tanks and homeowners should understand their benefits so they can make educated decisions about upgrading.

Even with the best water heater, your home’s plumbing system may be struggling! Be sure to ask about our whole-home repiping services to give your system a full upgrade.

How Do Tankless Water Heaters Work?

Instead of heating water and storing it in an insulated tank for later use, a tankless water heater is often called an on-demand water heater because it provides access to instant hot water. A powerful burner is located inside the unit. When sensors indicate that water is flowing through the unit, like when you turn on a bath or a shower, the burner kicks on and begins heating. Once the flow stops in the pipes, that is, once there is no longer demand, the burner shuts off and waits until the next use.

Most tankless water heaters can be installed in the same location as your current water heater with little modification. Tankless water heater installation can be completed very quickly by the professionals at Drain Nerds and you can be on the road to saving money on your hot water heating bills.

Benefits of Tankless Water Heater Installation

With all of the benefits of upgrading to a tankless water heater, it's a surprise that more people haven’t made the switch. While it’s true that tankless water heaters are more expensive upfront, there are many reasons to make the switch, and they can even save money in the long run. Among these benefits are:

  • Decreased Energy Usage: Since tankless water heaters only work when there is demand, you aren’t paying to keep heating water on stand-by.
  • Endless Hot Water: As long as there is demand, the burner will keep running. This means that the water is endless. No more short showers!
  • Fewer Repairs: Without a big tank, tankless water heaters have fewer things to go wrong. As a result, they need fewer repairs.
  • Increased Longevity: Along with fewer repairs, tankless water heaters last up to twice as long as a conventional water heater.

Additionally, because of their small size, these units can be used as point of use water heaters. This means that homeowners can find a unit specifically designed to provide hot water to one room or plumbing fixture.
