Tankless Water Heaters in Butler County, PA

Sure, we’re all familiar with tank water heaters: they’re the big, cylindrical tanks, usually placed in the corner of the garage or basement. But if you thought that was your only choice for a water heater, you’d be missing out! Tankless water heaters are as far away from tank water heaters as you could get (and much smaller, too). As you may have guessed, these water heaters do not have a tank, and that exception provides several benefits.

Due to the way tankless water heaters operate, it’s crucial they’re installed properly. A badly sized tankless water heater won’t be able to give you enough hot water. Fortunately, you can turn to Kennihan Plumbing & Heating, Inc. for all of your tankless water heater installation needs. Our master plumbers have over 75 years of combined experience in all things plumbing, and tankless water heaters are no exception. Contact us today to get started!

Just How Do Tankless Water Heaters Work?

It makes more sense when compared to a tank water heater: your normal tank water heater stores a set amount of water, heats it, and then dispenses hot water whenever it’s needed. When the tank runs out of hot water, there’s a waiting period as it refills and heats more water.

Since there’s no water storage in a tankless water heater, the hot water is generated as soon as the system demands hot water. It does this through electrical resistance or by combusting gas, effectively making these heaters an "on-demand" hot water system. Since hot water is generated only when needed, it can be far more efficient to run than a tank water heater, which heats water all throughout the day.

Tankless Water Heater Repair and Maintenance

Your tankless water heater won’t have some of the same issues that a tank water heat would, but that doesn’t mean it’s impervious. But when you notice your water heater isn’t working as it should, you can always count on the plumbers at Kennihan Plumbing & Heating, Inc. to come lend a hand. After all, our promise is to treat your home like it’s our grandma’s home, so you can bet that we’ll come running to lend all the help we can, regardless of where you are in Butler County!

Along with repairing your system when it’s needed, you should also make sure to schedule water heater maintenance:

  • Extend the life of your water heater.
  • Flush limescale deposits from the heating components, which can contribute to inefficiency.
  • Ensure that the water heater is still meeting the demands of your plumbing system. Over time, your water usage may change, and that can lead to the water heater needing an upgrade.
