Tankless water heater installation & repair in Gibsonia

Tankless water heater.

Tank-type water heaters store hot water so that it’s always available when needed. By far the most common type of water heater, tank-type water heaters can rely on electricity, natural gas, propane or fuel oil as a heat source. A thermostat in the storage tank controls water heating to maintain a constant water temperature in the 120-degree to 140-degree range. Insulation surrounding the tank reduces standby heat loss. Typical tank size for households is 50-80 gallons.

  • Typical maintenance: Drain sediment from bottom of tank, replace sacrificial anode.
  • Expected service life: 10-15 years.
  • What can go wrong: Faulty pressure-relief valve, Corrosion, sediment buildup, leaks in tank or fittings.

Tankless water heaters are compact & efficient. This type of water heater is also known as a “demand” heater because the heating element only comes on when a demand is made for hot water. Most tankless water heaters use propane or natural gas as a heat source. They can cut water heating expenses significantly in households where hot water use is infrequent.

  • Typical maintenance: Service heat exchanger to remove scale, clean in-line water filter.
  • Expected service life: 20 + years.
  • What can go wrong: A single tankless heater may not have sufficient capacity to supply hot water to multiple locations at the same time.

Indirect water heaters use heat from a boiler. When a house has some sort of hydronic (water-based) heating system, the boiler that heats water for whole-house heating can sometimes also supply hot water for washing.

  • Typical maintenance: Drain sediment from bottom of tank.
  • Expected service life: 20 + years.
  • What can go wrong: Corrosion, sediment buildup, leaks in tank or fittings.
