Discover the Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters
Say goodbye to bulky tanks, wasted energy, and limited hot water supply. Discover these game-changing benefits of tankless water heaters and revolutionize the way you heat water in your home.
Endless Hot Water Supply
Tankless water heaters provide continuous hot water by heating it only when needed, making them ideal for homes with high hot water demands, such as large families or homes with hot tubs or spa systems. If you're considering upgrading the size of your traditional tank, you might want to explore the advantages of a tankless hot water heater system instead.
When evaluating tankless water heaters, focus on their flow rate. As long as your household's hot water usage stays below the heater's maximum flow rate, you'll enjoy an uninterrupted supply. Generally, this means you can use as much hot water as you want in the first hour. However, keep in mind that tankless heaters don't provide instant hot water; it still takes time for hot water to travel from the unit to the faucet.
Tankless water heaters require significantly less space for installation compared to traditional heaters, providing more room in your home or garage. These wall-mounted units don't need a bulky water tank, and some models can even be installed outdoors, freeing up valuable indoor space.
Enhanced Energy Efficiency
While the most efficient traditional gas water heaters have a 62% efficiency rating, tankless heaters operate at over 80% efficiency. Tankless units save energy by eliminating the constant heating and cooling cycle experienced by traditional tanks. Over time, tankless hot water heaters maintain their efficiency, while conventional tanks lose efficiency.
Depending on your water usage habits, you could save 30-60% on your water heating energy costs, which typically range between $150 and $400 annually.
Superior Quality and Longevity
With a lifespan of 20 to 30 years, tankless water heaters outlast traditional heaters, which usually last for 8 to 12 years. Constructed with high-quality components and materials, tankless heaters are less prone to rusting or leaking. While they cost more to install, the long-term savings can offset the initial investment.
Increased Home Resale Value
Installing a tankless water heater can boost your home's resale value, potentially covering the installation cost and more. Invest in a tankless unit for a more efficient and sustainable solution to your hot water needs.

Tankless Water Heater Installation Costs
The cost to install a tankless heater can vary greatly. We would need to put together an estimate in order to determine total cost. Total cost ranges from $2,000 to $4,500 installed.
In order to install the unit properly, your home must have the following:
- Gas or propane and normally we have to run a dedicated gas line to the unit because tankless heaters require up to 200,000 BTUs at full fire.
- Category-3 stainless steel or PVC venting installed. This may require us to relocate the heater to an exterior wall or outdoors.
- Install additional piping if we need to relocate the heater.
- Run dedicated power to the tankless heater. If there is a power outage, the tankless unit will not provide hot water. However, we can install a backup battery system.
If you are replacing an existing tankless water heater or your home is new construction and set up for a tankless unit, the installation costs drop dramatically.
Three Types of Tankless Water Heaters
Discover the various tankless water heater options available to you, each with its unique features and benefits:
1. Non-condensing: These first-generation tankless water heaters have been widely used in Europe and Japan for decades. Known for their reliability, non-condensing units have stood the test of time with few manufacturing issues.
2. Condensing: As second-generation tankless heaters, these models feature both primary and secondary heat exchangers. By reusing the heat from the exhaust to warm the water in the secondary heat exchanger, condensing units boost efficiency levels from 92% to 94%.
3. Condensing hybrid: Originating in the United States, these third-generation tankless heaters come with a small 1-2 gallon holding tank. This tank maintains a constant supply of hot water, ensuring optimal efficiency even with minimal water usage. As a result, condensing hybrid heaters achieve a true energy factor (EF) of 0.92 to 0.96.
By upgrading to a tankless water heater, you could potentially increase your home's value and recover the installation costs through the added value.
Tankless Water Heater Repair Denver
Tankless water heaters heat water “on demand” on an as needed basis, so they do not experience the always on wear and tear as standard hot water heaters. Because of this, tankless heaters can have lifetimes twice as long as standard units. If you water is very “hard” or has a high mineral content, we recommend flushing your tankless heater regularly.
