Many homes opt for a conventional or storage water heater. A conventional water heater is one that is equipped with a tank that holds heated water for on-demand use. They can be powered by a number of different fuel sources, but most commonly, we see natural gas or electric powered units in homes throughout Los Angeles County. The other type of unit we recommend is a tankless water heater, which we’ve described in more detail below.

Regardless of the type of hot water you have, you can rest assured that we have the experience and now-how to repair or replace it.

Tankless Water Heater Installation

If you are interested in upgrading from a conventional water heater to a newer tankless model, we’ve got you covered! Tankless water heaters have a few advantages over their conventional counterparts. Most notably, their ability to heat water on demand. This eliminates the need for a large hot water storage tank since water is heated nearly instantaneously as it called from the taps throughout your home for use.

How Do Tankless Water Heaters Work?

With traditional tank water heaters, water is heated and then stored in a tank. That tank must be kept warm in order to maintain the water at the right temperature for use. This constant heating of the 40 to 50 gallons of water that is stored in the average tank is rather costly. What’s more, even when the hot water heater is not in use it has to stay fired up to reheat the constantly cooling water.

With a tankless water heater installation in Granada Hills, just as the name suggests, there is no tank to keep warm! Tankless water heaters only heat water on-demand. Meaning water is heated just before it flows through the different taps in your home. The minute you stop using hot water, the water heater shuts down, saving your hundreds every single year. And not only does a tankless water heater’s ability to function intermittently provide substantial energy savings, it also helps to extend the life of your tankless unit.

What Are The Benefits of Going Tankless?

When making the decision to replace a conventional water heater with a tankless water heater, a few key benefits usually help make the decision easier. Some of the benefits of upgrading to a tankless water heater include:
