Multnomah County, OR Tankless Water Heater Installation

Tankless water heaters run without a storage tank, and are able to provide hot water on demand. Instead of storing hot water in a tank like conventional water heaters, these space-saving models heat water as it’s being used. And because you’re not wasting energy to keep water heated in a 30 to 50 gallon tank, tankless water heaters can reduce your monthly utility bills. Also, these energy-efficient models are compact and fit in smaller spaces or can be mounted on a wall.

How does a tankless water heater work?

Tankless water heaters work by instantly heating water as it flows through a pipe into the water heater, which does not retain any water within the unit except for what is in the heat exchanger coil. The water is then warmed by gas or an electrical heating element (depending on the model selected). With a tankless water heater you never have to worry about running out of hot water again. You can also control the water temperature more precisely, keeping the water temperature at safe levels.
Tankless water heaters are more expensive than conventional water heaters are up-front, but they can help provide you 30% savings in your water-heating costs and a 50% decrease in your energy consumption.
