The tankless water heater is growing in popularity because it provides hot water instantly when needed and helps to reduce the electric bill. In contrast, traditional water heaters with tanks have to expend energy to keep a large volume of water heated at all times. This is a sheer waste of money if you do not need hot water constantly throughout the day.
There are basically two types of tankless water heaters: one that runs on electricity and the other that runs on gas. As the device heats the water as it runs through it, you won’t have to wait for more than just a few minutes. This ensures a constant supply of hot water anytime you need it. Tankless water heaters are ideal for showers, washbasins and dishwashers in homes. You can also use one a as booster for your solar water heating system.
You can have a tankless water heater installed by a qualified plumbing and heating contractor.
For the best results and to ensure your tankless hot water heater is efficient and works as it should, make sure you choose only the best contractor. You can do the following when hiring a contractor.
- Ask your neighbours, friends and colleagues if they know of any good plumbing and heating contractors. A contractor who has done a great job for others is likely to do the same quality job for you.
- Check the contractor with the local Better Business Bureau as they have performance records of all the companies in your area and is a good place to verify your inquiry.
- Ask the contractor to estimate the cost and give the same to you in writing. You can compare the price of two or more contractors before awarding the contract to anyone. But keep in mind, that the cheapest is not always the best.
- Before hiring a contractor, ask him if he is familiar with the local building codes and whether he will obtain the necessary permits.
