When it comes to the most efficient water heaters available on the market, tankless water heaters take the cake. These models are wonderful for homeowners in Milford, CT who use hot water on the regular but want it fresh and not sitting around in their tank for quite some time before use. You see, a tankless water heater is quite simple; instead of storing water, it warms the water as you need it.
Tankless water heaters do require regular maintenance, just like their tanked counterparts. With a tankless system, the burner may become clogged over time, which will result in hot portions that could cause damage to the heat exchanger. Should this be the case, call in Rick’s Plumbing to look over the whole system and perform efficient repairs.
Just like a tank water heater, tankless water heaters must be replaced every so often. The majority of systems will work wonderfully for a good eight to 12 years, then they should be replaced to ensure the hot water continues to flow.
Replacing your water heater is a serious task that requires a steady professional hand to complete. More than simply installing a small heating unit goes into the replacement of an entire tankless system.
With the cost of labor, the water heater itself, and any required piping or parts, the total cost of installing a brand new tankless water heater can vary greatly. It really depends on the type of unit you may want installed in your home or office, whether or not a unit must be replaced or installed completely fresh, and what has to be done to bring the system up to code. A 50-gallon water heater, for example, goes for around $1,000 to $1,700.
