The Benefits of Technology
This “on-demand” technology has been used in Europe and Japan for decades and is now catching on in California. Rather than taking a half-hour or more to heat a big tank back up, this technology uses a high-performance heat-exchanger that heats the water as it flows through. Up to their rated flow capacity, they deliver a constant supply, no matter how long you’re using it. They’re so small they can be placed in the kitchen and bath to give you essentially instant hot water — no waiting, no wasted water.
With no standby losses from a big storage tank, tankless water heaters also save energy. According to www.energy.gov for families that use a lot of hot water that may be as little as 8-14% but more commonly it’s in the range of 24-34%. And when located at the point of use savings are typically
27-50%. Due to the advanced heat exchanger, this technology does require a bit more maintenance, but with that taken care of they usually last twice as long as storage water heaters (20 years versus 8-12 years).

Tankless Water Heater Installation
Our expertise starts before installation begins. Working with you we’ll select the best brand and model for your particular situation. The first decision is electric versus natural gas. With tankless technologies, gas/propane provides higher flow rates than electric, but require venting and may require upgrading the gas line. On the other hand, electric models are much more easily installed under cabinets in the kitchen and bath. Either way, our tankless water heater installations typically take 6 to 8 hours.
With Southern California’s hard water, scale build-up inside water heaters can be a big problem that reduces performance and shortens their lifetimes. With tankless designs regular maintenance to remove scale is critical. That’s usually once a year; with a water softener that may be every few years. But annual service is likely necessary to maintain your warranty. Our services include de-scaling, inspection, safety checks..
Regular maintenance and prompt repairs pay off with a lifetime of around 20 years. You may never need a replacement![/column]
