Dec 14, 2014Tankless water heaters a great choice for your home. They are comfortable, convenient and take up less space than conventional water heaters! Are you thinking of making the switch? Here are a few things every homeowners should know.
Tankless Water Heater Myths:
- Installation - Many people assume that tankless water heaters only need to be plugged in. However, many homes were not created with tankless retrofit in mind. We need to make sure that your gas meter and gas line are sized appropriately.
- Water Flow - Tankless water heaters do not deliver hot water to your faucet any faster. If your water takes a long time to get to the faucet, you may need to address a different plumbing problem.
- Types - Not all tankless water heaters are the same. Depending on your individual needs, certain models may be more effective for your home than others.
- Permits - Depending on your area, you may need a mechanical permit, gas piping permit, or electrical permit.
