Installing a Tankless Water Heater
For smaller families or homes with less water consumption, you may want to consider installing a tankless water heater for your home. As the name implies, tankless water heaters don’t have the traditional storage tanks of the standard water heater models. This type of water heater delivers instantaneous water or on-demand by simply turning your shower or faucets on. It is also compact and can fit in any small spaces.
If you have a large household but still want to install tankless water heaters, our East Troy plumbers will recommend installing a “whole house” type tankless water heater or install additional units connected in parallel for simultaneous hot water demand.
Other applications for your East Troy tankless water heaters include:
- Remote BBQ or outdoor sink
- Pool house or pool shower
- Remote bathrooms or hot tubs
Can You Install a Tankless Heat Pump Water Heater?
Occasionally our customers will ask if there are heat pump water heaters which are tankless. The answer is no, not really. Some manufacturers have created them, but they aren't feasible or common, and we wouldn't recommend them. It comes down to energy efficiency, and we'd like all of our customers to enjoy maximum efficiency without overpaying on their utility bills.
There are many other options we can point you toward, and if you still aren't sure of what your household needs by reading our site, please give us a call at (262) 314-4566 and we'll be happy to listen and make recommendations.
