Is a Tankless a good idea for my Auburn, Ca home?
I’ve been installing and servicing tankless water heater for over 12 years. People ask me questions all the time like, is a tankless a good idea for my Grass Valley, or Auburn Ca, home, do they work for the whole house, etc. It really depends on the application. If you want to save energy, and have endless hot water they’re great. If you want to save money, it gets a little more complicated. If you have a large water heater like a 75 gallon or larger, a large family, or family that come to visit often, they will save you money. But if there are only 2 people in the home and you have a 40 gallon water heater, it will take a while to pay for its self in energy savings. All though with the 30% Federal Tax Credit the pay back is a lot quicker than it used to be. The best thing is to have a Licensed plumber who has experience with tankless water heaters come out and give you an idea of cost. Be sure the plumber has experience though, the only time we’ve seen problems with tankless water heaters is installation issues. Tankless is a good choice, do some research, call an experienced plumber, and enjoy the benifits of endless hot water and energy efficiency.
