Converting to a tankless water heater


I spent years thinking about changing over to a tankless water heater before I finally made the decision.

When the household water tank started to leak and needed to be replaced, I knew it was the perfect time.

Rather than head to the nearest home improvement store and buy a new tank, I called a plumber. There are numerous professional plumbing contractors available in Vineland, New Jersey. Realizing the project was going to be quite involved, invasive and expensive, I wanted a licensed, insured and reputable plumber. I made sure to check for an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau and also read customer reviews. The plumber I hired was absolutely wonderful. He showed up right on time, listened to my plans and offered recommendations. He explained that if the household required simultaneous water usage from multiple sources, the tankless water heater would struggle to keep up with demand. My kids have grown up and moved out. With just my husband and I in the house, we don’t need to run the shower, dishwasher and washing machine all at the same time. Our water heating priorities were more about system efficiency and longevity. Tankless water heaters are much more easily repaired than a tank-style alternative and tend to last nearly twice as long. Because the water passes through a heat exchanger and is heated as needed, there is no waiting for it to heat up. Rather than sit in a tank absorbing minerals and other contaminants, the water is perfectly clean. A tankless water heater eliminates the standby energy losses and the possibility of flooding from a ruptured tank. Our new tankless water heater is about the size of a compact suitcase and mounted up on the wall. It has freed up considerable space in our basement. I am delighted with the improvement.
