Most people are accustomed to the traditional tank model of water heater, but they’re not the only option out there. Tankless water heaters, which get rid of the large cylindrical tanks, offer a number of benefits that you would do well to explore. Though they’re not right for every Minneapolis, MN home, they can offer considerable advantages to those homes that make a good fit.
At American Eagle Plumbing, Inc., we believe in finding the right tankless water heater for those homes that would do well with it, then being there for installation, repair, replacement and maintenance services whenever you need us to. It’s part of our stated goal of providing our community prompt and honest service. Contact us today and let us set up a consultation!
How They Work
As you may have guessed, tankless water heaters don’t use traditional tanks to do their jobs. Instead, they use heated coils to heat the water instantly as it travels through the pipes. They work better in smaller homes than larger ones, since placing too much strain on them can diminish their effectiveness. They also cost more to install than tank models, especially if you require more than one unit to meet all of the needs of your home.
But with the right service in your corner, you can keep those costs to a minimum. In return, you’ll enjoy all of the benefits they provide: instant hot water, potentially limitless so long as the water keeps flowing, and usually with a lower cost than water heated in a more traditional manner. For Minneapolis residents concerned about the bottom line, it could be the perfect fit.
Installation and Replacement are a Snap
Tankless water heater installation starts with an assessment of the needs of your home. Vacation homes, for instance, often make a great fit for tankless units because tankless systems do better than tank models after sitting for lengthy periods of time, as do fishing cottages and similar residences here in Minneapolis.
Once that’s complete, the installation itself can be performed. Tankless systems are often placed near the outlet they’re serving, which accounts for another big benefit of theirs – saving space. And with the pros at American Eagle Plumbing, Inc. in your corner, you can rest assured that the installation will be performed correctly. We can also perform replacement services on older heaters whose race may be run.
Trust Us for Repair and Maintenance Issues
Tankless water heater installation is only the first part of the equation. You also need the same service company to come back when repairs are needed, and more importantly, to perform tankless water heater maintenance on a regular basis to prevent those repairs.
Maintenance is highly recommended for any major plumbing appliance, not only because it gives the technician a chance to stop big issues when they’re still small, but to help the water heater perform more efficiently and even extend its lifespan when performed regularly. We’re happy to provide swift repair service when needed, but we take just as much pride in scheduling maintenance and helping to keep those calls to a minimum!
