Tankless Water Heater Installation Basics

How much should it cost for a regular (standard) gas water heater to be installed? Back in 1995, a homeowner was charged $150 for one to be installed in Atlanta. These days, these water heaters can easily run you well over a thousand dollars! The best way to find out what it will cost you to get your heater installed is to shop around and get quotes. Once you have the quotes you need, you can make an informed decision on the right type of water heater to purchase.

First of all, there are two types of heaters that you can get. You have a gas water heater or a propane tankless water heater. Both of these heat water and the only difference are the sources. A gas heater heats the water that runs through the pipes while a propane heater heats the water that is already running through the pipes. The advantage of having a gas heater is that it is less likely to go out.

Water heaters that are powered by electricity are safer than gas-powered ones. Electric heaters are also more reliable. It takes longer for them to go out, and they don’t use as much energy. In the long run, it may be cheaper to buy an electric tankless water heater rather than a gas-powered one.

There are a few things you need to take into consideration before your new tankless heater goes in. First of all, you need to determine how much hot water you will need from this tankless system. If you use a lot of hot water, then you will most likely want an electric model. If you use very little water, a gas-powered heater maybe your best option.

Water temperature is important when it comes to tankless hot water heating. You need to figure out the point at which the water temperature starts to drop. Then you can set your thermostat for the proper temperature. If your water tank is too deep, it may take longer to heat up enough water for your desired water temperature. This is why it is important to figure out your specific needs, such as how often you need a shower or how often you use the dishwasher.

There are many things to take into consideration when it comes to the water heater installation. To make sure you are doing it right the first time, it is important to find a professional to do it. Having it installed by a professional ensures that it will work properly the first time. The price of these systems is usually well worth the time and money they will save you over time.
