Our team knows how important it is to have a dependable hot water supply for your residential and commercial properties. Tankless water heaters offer energy-efficient, on-demand hot water, providing convenience and cost savings compared to traditional tank-style heaters. With our expertise and commitment to quality service, we offer comprehensive tankless water heater installation and repair solutions tailored to meet the unique needs of our clients.

Tankless water heater installation involves the professional setup of on-demand hot water systems that heat water directly without the use of storage tanks. From selecting the right unit to proper sizing, installation, and setup, every step of the process requires careful planning, expertise, and adherence to industry standards.

Our Tankless Water Heater Installation Assessment

Before a tankless water heater installation, our team will assess:

  • Sizing and Capacity: Proper sizing of the tankless water heater is essential to ensure an adequate supply of hot water for the property’s needs. Factors such as household size, hot water usage patterns, and flow rate requirements are taken into account to determine the appropriate unit size and capacity.
  • Fuel Type: Tankless water heaters are available in electric, natural gas, propane, and hybrid models, each with its advantages and considerations. Our experts help clients select the most suitable fuel type based on energy availability, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness.
  • Location and Ventilation: Tankless water heaters require proper installation in well-ventilated areas with access to electrical or gas connections. Our technicians assess the property layout and ventilation requirements to ensure the safe and compliant installation of tankless water heaters.
  • Plumbing Configuration: Seamless integration with existing plumbing systems is crucial for the efficient operation and performance of tankless water heaters. Our experienced team designs and installs plumbing configurations that optimize flow rate, minimize pressure drops, and prevent issues such as water hammer and temperature fluctuations.
  • Code Compliance: Compliance with local building codes, regulations, and manufacturer specifications is essential for safe and reliable tankless water heater installation. Our technicians stay updated on the latest codes and standards to ensure that installations meet or exceed industry requirements.

Signs Your Tankless Water Heater Might Need Replacement

  • Decreased Efficiency: Over time, tankless water heaters may experience decreased efficiency due to mineral buildup, corrosion, or component wear. Signs of decreased efficiency include longer wait times for hot water, fluctuations in water temperature, and increased energy consumption.
  • Reduced Performance: If your tankless water heater fails to deliver consistent hot water or experiences frequent breakdowns, it may be a sign of underlying issues that require attention. Poor performance can result from factors such as inadequate sizing, faulty components, or improper installation.
  • Age: The lifespan of a tankless water heater typically ranges from 10 to 20 years, depending on usage, maintenance, and water quality. If your unit is approaching or exceeding its expected lifespan, it may be time to consider replacement to avoid unexpected failures and costly repairs.
  • Increased Energy Bills: A sudden increase in energy bills without a corresponding increase in hot water usage could indicate inefficiency or malfunction in your tankless water heater. Energy inefficiency may result from factors such as mineral buildup, faulty components, or improper installation.
  • Leaks or Corrosion: Visible leaks, corrosion, or rust on the tankless water heater unit or associated plumbing connections are clear indicators of potential problems that require immediate attention. Ignoring leaks or corrosion can lead to water damage, mold growth, and further deterioration of the unit.

Everyone we have interacted with has been the best. Polite, professional, responsive. We had a new water softener system installed, some plumbing redone, and water heater service. Everything was completed promptly and professionally. They are also fast to respond to inquiries. They provide great service and peace of mind. Very good service. We will use them again.

Don O.

Tried other so-called HVAC “professionals” to fix our issues but only Tim was able to take care of our situation. He exhibited his professional skills in diagnosing our problem and explained the repairs he was going to make to us in a manner that we could understand. Obviously knowledgeable and also very friendly.

James D.

Carlos was great! He was very professional, did a great high-quality job, and went above and beyond for us. Seems like all plumbers are very busy right now, and our service was delayed by a day because he got caught up on another job. But after seeing the quality of the work he did, it was worth the wait.

Robyn A.

Great service. Professional. The guys took a look. Quoted a price and were done and cleaned up in an hour. You get what you pay for! I’ve heard they are too expensive but it seemed fair considering the work done. Like I said though I could have found cheaper but who knows the quality? Not these guys! Quality!

Bruce G.

We had a clogged toilet, bathtub, kitchen sink. Fonzi assessed the situation and gave us options on how to find a solution that worked for us. He did this politely and spoke in terms we could relate to. We continue to be pleased with their service and honest evaluations. Highly recommend this company.

Carol J.

Jared showed up on time and was very professional with diagnosing our HVAC issues. He fixed wiring and checked electrical connections to ensure no shorting issues. He diagnosed an issue with our circuit board tripping the breaker. He had replacement parts on hand and fixed the issue in a timely manner. Very professional, would definitely recommend.

Laura J.

I had I believe James and Christian come help me with a shower drain. These guys really knew their stuff and I felt comfortable with them. They even helped me fix my smoker while they were here!!! Excellent job guys. You will be my go-to from here on out. Thank you!!!

Terry D.

David walked into a plumbing mess of epic proportions. One that many had been unwilling to help with based on the scope of work needed to be done. He could have chosen the path of least resistance, but he stayed at our place longer than he deserved to and evaluated every element of our problem.

Vanessa T.

We were very happy with all of the staff, from the Comfort Advisor to the technicians and office support staff. The mapping of the new system was very thorough and important to the efficiency and performance of our new Heat Pump System, by expanding and adding air registers in the kitchen, bathroom en suite, and bedroom.

Valene M.

Luis and Silverio were very professional, knowledgeable, and efficient. They took extra measures that protect our home and cleaned any debris. I would rate them both as exceptional. Luis mentioned that someone from Wighton may come back to do a follow-up on their work. That gave me a lot of confidence.
