At Village Plumbing, we proudly install tankless water heaters in and around Houston. These innovative devices heat water on demand. A traditional water heater runs continuously to produce hot water and maintain its temperature. But a tankless unit turns on only when you use a hot water faucet, shower head, or an appliance such as a washing machine, potentially saving a great deal of energy.
Our licensed technicians are fully trained in tankless water heater installation, so you experience benefits such as:
Village Plumbing specializes in different types of tankless water heaters. Our team will help you decide what’s best suited for your home. Here are the tankless units we can install:
An electric heating element heats the water that passes through the unit. An electric tankless system costs less upfront, but its lifespan is similar to a traditional water heater. Depending on your home’s electrical capacity, an upgrade may be required to support the additional demand.
Heating water with a gas burner, gas tankless water heaters tend to last longer. They can also produce a larger temperature rise per unit of water flow (in gallons per minute (GPM)). Although higher in cost to install, gas units cost less to operate and are suited for large households.
A point-of-use unit can supplement or be used as an alternative to a whole-house tankless system (or supplement a traditional water heater). It can often be installed within a closet or cabinet. Smaller and less expensive, it may be used to serve a single shower, sink, or washing machine.
A tankless water heater can last for many years if properly installed. There are many different models to choose from. Before you make your purchase, consider the following factors:
A lot of people aren’t familiar with the technology of tankless water heaters. But the benefits can vary depending on your household. Considerations to weigh include installation and monthly utility costs, home retrofitting requirements, and the amount of hot water you use simultaneously. Every house has different requirements.
It depends on the capacity of the tankless water heater. Whether multiple fixtures can get hot water at once depends on GPM capacity (add up the GPMs of each fixture to determine if they can be run simultaneously). Most tankless water heaters can serve one or two hot water fixtures at a time.
You might be able to, but only if you have some experience. If not, you may make costly mistakes that cause damage or water/gas leaks. You may also void the warranty on the unit. A professional avoids these issues and picks the right-sized unit for your household.
