TANKLESS HOT WATER HEATERS
At Better Water Heaters, the environment means the world to us. But saving you money is just as important. That is why we are proud to carry the complete line of Noritz Tankless Hot Water Heater products. Going tankless means continuous hot water, high energy efficiency, and low operating costs. Although tankless water heater solutions are generally more expensive initially, you can expect to save 30-45% in energy expenses when compared to a conventional tank model, making Tankless a very wise investment.
Generally a tankless water heater installation will cost between $2500-$4000, more up front cost than a conventional water heater. The main reason for the higher cost is that most installations require a larger, dedicated gas line to support the added BTUs. Tankless heaters also require special stainless steel venting. If galvanized plumbing is present in the property a filter should also be installed to protect the flow meter of the tankless unit. They can usually be installed in 1 full day and are much smaller and can produce much MORE hot water than a conventional heater.
Tankless water heaters usually make sense to homeowners who:
- Have environmental concerns
- Have a need for endless hot water (maybe a Jacuzzi tub?)
- Are trying to free up space
- Need to relocate the water heater
Homeowners usually find the additional cost of a tankless water heater installation may pay for itself in as little as 8-10 years when taking into account the lower gas bill, the tax credit, and the longer life of a quality tankless water heater.
