Heating the water in your home is a big job. It requires a lot of energy and a lot of space. In recent years, technology has advanced so that you can heat the water in your home without a big tank tacking on hundreds of dollars per year to your energy bill. The solution is tankless water heating and with tax credits, lower bills, and more consistent hot water distribution, this form of a hot water heater is becoming increasingly popular.

Pompeii’s has been providing water heater service for many years, helping homeowners ensure the steady availability of hot water for every fixture in their home. Our trained Cleveland plumbers are skilled at installing and repairing all brands of tankless hot water heaters in Cleveland, OH area.

Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters

Tankless hot water heaters are growing increasingly popular for a number of reasons:

  1. The first is the most substantial – they cost less to operate. Because they only heat the water you are currently using, instead of a tank of water, they cut down on your energy bill extensively. It’s estimated that over the course of a tankless’ 20-year life, you can save up to $1700 in energy costs alone.
  2. Additionally, you can receive a Federal Tax Credit of up to $1,500 in the year you install your new tankless heater.
  3. Beyond saving money, tankless water heaters are much more efficient than traditional tank models. They use less energy when operating and can last two times longer than a traditional system.
  4. Without a tank that can crack and leak, a tankless water heater can save you the worry of coming home to a flooded basement, closet, or bathroom where the unit is held.
  5. The added benefit of having that extra space in your basement is a nice bonus as well.

Tankless Water Heater Installation

Installation of tankless hot water heaters requires replacement of your main hot water tank with a series of heating modules that will apply energy to the water only when the hot water faucet is turned on. In some cases, added ventilation and gas piping is also required, though for the most part, electrical access is sufficient to power a tankless water heater.

Beyond installation, water heater service and maintenance are vital. Scale build up can be a problem if you do not have your tankless heater serviced annually. This fits in nicely with other annual services, including those for your septic system and your water mains. Without that annual service, you run a high risk of calcium buildup in your system, which can cut off the flow of water and damage your pipes.

Choosing Your Tankless Hot Water Heater

Choosing a tankless water heater in Cleveland is a complex process that starts with understanding the basic needs of your home. If you are interested in having hot water for just one or two rooms at a time, this is a fantastic solution because of the low cost, low volume nature. For other situations, it may make sense to look into a multiple units or a high efficiency tank water heater that can reduce the amount of energy you use while ensuring there is enough water ready at any time for your entire home.
