If saving a ton of money on energy bills and always having an endless amount of hot water available sound good to you, then a tankless water heater might be the way for you to go.

With a tankless water heater there are no “standby losses” like conventional water heaters have—that is, there isn’t a loss of energy and money wasted on heating and reheating water in the tank that is just sitting there waiting to be used. Of course, tankless water heaters are “tank-less”; they don’t have a tank at all! Because tankless water heaters (sometimes called on-demand water heaters) work by forcing cold water across heated coils, they instantly heat the water and deliver it to you piping hot. Consequently, they only use energy when you demand it, never for just standing-by.

Can you imagine—no more waiting to take a shower because someone else used up all the hot water! In fact, you could have infinite amounts of hot water instantly available, and lower energy bills too!

Since it has no tank, the tankless water heater itself is significantly smaller than a standard water heater and can fit into places where other types of water heaters would not. Obviously, that could be critical in situations where space is limited.

Other Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters

Besides saving energy, there are other environmentally-friendly aspects to installing a tankless water heater. Even more, tankless water heaters have almost twice the life expectancy of any tank-type of water heater, and are made of recyclable materials and replaceable parts, which in turn reduces landfill waste, and they reduce CO2 emissions. In fact, if every household in the US replaced their water heater with a tankless water heater, the amount of carbon emissions eliminated would be the same as removing 6.7 million cars. That’s a huge amount.

Another benefit is that a tankless water heater can perform quite well in any climate—from hot summers to the icy cold winters.

All in all, these features add up to make tankless water heaters an extremely popular choice, and why at Goodman Plumbing we choose to specialize in tankless water heater installation and repair.

Although a tankless water heater can have a higher upfront cost than a traditional storage tank water heater, because it is 45-60% more energy-efficient than a conventional water heater you can end up saving $1,800 in energy costs over its lifetime! That’s a lot of money saved, and a lot of natural resources too.

Common Tankless Water Heater Asheville Questions:

What Are Some Advantages of a Tankless Water Heater?

Tankless water heaters are amazing: they offer endless supply of hot water whenever you want it, they last longer (20 years is the average life span), they fit in tight spaces and they are more energy efficient than conventional gas and electric water heaters. At Goodman Plumbing our Asheville plumbers are factory trained and certified in repairing and maintenancing tankless water heaters. Call us at 828-774-7076 to schedule an appointment that is convenient for you!

What Are Some Disadvantages of Tankless Water Heaters?

Compared to conventional gas and electric water heaters, tankless water heaters have a much higher up-front cost, even though they last longer and pay for themselves with the amount of fuel they save. They also work best if you have access to natural gas or propane as your fuel source. However, if you only have electricity, there are some other very energy-efficient water heaters like the hybrid heat-pump water heater that you might be interested in!

Call us at 828-774-7076 to have someone answer any questions you may have or schedule an appointment that is convenient for you!

What Kind of Water Heater Maintenance Do I Need?

Different type of water heaters need different types of maintenance to help them last as long as possible. Tank types will need to be drained and flushed regularly, especially if you have a lot of sediment. Waiting too long to clean the tank may force a replacement sooner than expected.

Tankless water heaters need to be descaled and cleaned annually. Give us a call at 828-774-7076 and we can schedule an appointment that is convenient for you to get your tankless water heater Asheville serviced.


How Long Do Water Heaters Last?

The average lifespan of a water heater is between 8-12 years for a conventional water heater model, about 15 years for ultra-high efficiency or heat pump water heaters and 20+ years for tankless water heaters. Water heaters located in garages or crawl spaces, where the temperature drops significantly, have to work harder to heat the water and tend to wear out more quickly. You may want to have your water heater checked out before its an emergency!
