Tankless Water Heaters

Tankless Water Heater Repair Services

Tankless water heaters, also known as on-demand water heaters, are designed to heat water directly without the use of a storage tank. When a hot water tap is turned on, cold water travels through a pipe into the unit, where it is heated by either a gas burner or an electric element. This process ensures that hot water is available instantly and continuously.

Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters

Energy Efficiency

One of the primary advantages of tankless water heaters is their energy efficiency. Unlike traditional tank heaters that continuously heat and reheat water to keep it at a constant temperature, tankless heaters operate on an on-demand basis.

This means they only heat water when it’s needed, leading to less energy consumption.

Supply of Hot Water

Traditional water tanks can run out of hot water when the stored amount is depleted, which is a common issue in households with high demand. In contrast, tankless heaters heat water as it passes through the unit, ensuring that hot water is always available whenever a tap is turned on.

This continuous flow is particularly advantageous for large families or homes where the demand for hot water is frequent and in large volumes.

Space Savings

Traditional water heaters with tanks require a considerable amount of space for installation. This is especially beneficial in smaller homes or apartments where space is at a premium. The ability to mount these heaters on a wall or in tight spaces adds to their convenience, freeing up room for other uses.

Features of Tankless Water Heaters

Stainless Steel Components

Stainless steel is known for its durability and resistance to corrosion, which is crucial in a device dealing with water and heat.

This construction means that tankless heaters are less likely to suffer from leaks or rust over time compared to heaters made with less durable materials. The use of stainless steel also helps in maintaining the heat transfer rate, ensuring that the water heats up quickly and maintains its temperature as it flows through the system.

The longevity provided by these materials ensures that homeowners get more value from their investment over the long term.

Control System

Control systems allow for precise management of water flow and temperature. For the user, this means a more consistent and controllable hot water experience. You can set the desired temperature for your hot water, and the system will work to maintain this, adjusting the heating elements as needed.

This improves the user experience but also contributes to the efficiency of the unit, as it minimizes energy wastage by avoiding overheating the water.

Water Heater Installation

When installing a tankless water heater, several factors need to be considered, such as the location of the unit, the power source (gas or electric), and the proper venting system for gas models.

Expert installers from AAA Heating and Plumbing ensure that every aspect of the installation is handled correctly. This includes assessing the home’s water demand to choose the right size of the heater, ensuring that it is installed in a location where it can operate most efficiently, and making all the necessary connections correctly.

Proper installation is crucial not just for the unit’s efficiency and longevity but also for the safety of the household, especially in the case of gas-powered units.

Integration with Water Softeners

Another aspect of installation services offered by AAA Heating and Plumbing is the integration of tankless water heaters with water softeners. Hard water, which contains high levels of minerals like calcium and magnesium, can be detrimental to water heaters, leading to scale buildup and reduced efficiency.

By integrating a water softener with the tankless water heater, homeowners can protect their investment and ensure its longevity. The softened water helps in maintaining the efficiency of the heater and extends its lifespan by preventing mineral buildup.

The installation process in this case involves not just setting up the tankless water heater but also ensuring that the water softener is properly connected and configured to work in tandem with the heater. This dual setup not only enhances the performance of the water heater but also improves the overall quality of the water in the home.

Their team ensures that the installation complies with all local codes and regulations, which is essential for the safety and legality of the installation.

Maintenance and Servicing

Routine Maintenance

Regular maintenance is key to ensuring the efficient operation and extended lifespan of tankless water heaters. AAA Heating and Plumbing emphasizes the importance of routine check-ups, which involve several critical tasks.

These include cleaning the filters, checking the burner, and examining the overall condition of the unit. Lime and scale build-up can be a common issue, especially in areas with hard water, and regular descaling is necessary to maintain efficiency.

These maintenance tasks help in preventing minor issues from escalating into major problems, ensuring that the water heater operates at peak efficiency.

Repair and Servicing

AAA Heating and Plumbing offers comprehensive repair services to address a range of issues that may arise with tankless water heaters.

Advantages in the Long Run

Long-Term Energy Savings

One of the most significant long-term advantages of tankless water heaters is the potential for substantial energy savings. Unlike traditional tank heaters that continuously heat a large volume of water, tankless heaters operate on-demand, heating water only when it is needed.

This fundamental difference in operation translates into lower energy usage and, consequently, reduced energy bills for the household. Over time, these savings can be quite significant, offsetting the initial higher cost of purchasing and installing a tankless water heater.


The on-demand nature of tankless water heaters means that they avoid the energy wastage associated with keeping water hot in a tank. For homeowners who are conscious about their carbon footprint and environmental impact, tankless water heaters present an appealing option.
