Tankless Water Heaters in Bastrop County

Want to Save on Your Hot Water Costs?

Tankless water heaters are more than just a trendy new design in home appliances. These units offer many benefits for today’s homeowners including cost savings, environmental benefits, and energy conservation. However, they function very differently from traditional tank-based water heaters, which means that they may not be suitable for every household.

If you need guidance deciding whether or not a tankless water heater is a good investment or need assistance servicing your current unit, Parobek Plumbing can help. Since 1982, our techs have been performing tankless water heater services with integrity and speed. We promise long-term solutions and your 100% satisfaction.

Advantages of Tankless Water Heaters

One of the biggest advantages of a tankless unit is the overall reduction in energy consumption for the household. Because these appliances heat water only when you need it, you don’t waste energy keeping a tank hot 24/7. This also means that you save money because you aren't using energy to constantly heat water that you don’t use most of the time.

Other benefits include:

  • Compact size- Tankless units are typically around the size of a desktop computer. This allows homeowners to install them in closets or tight spaces where a tank unit couldn’t fit.
  • Cleaner water- Traditional water heater tanks degrade as they age, developing rust and a layer of sediment inside, which comes out in the water. Tankless units don’t store the water, so there is nothing to degrade and the water stays clean.

Typical Lifespan of Tankless Units

The fact is that tankless water heaters last far longer than their traditional counterparts. While each tankless manufacturer specifies slightly different lifespans for their units, most tankless water heaters can be expected to last for around 20 years.

In our experience, most warranties for tankless units run for around 15 years. This is longer than traditional tank-based water heaters, which only have an expected lifespan of between 10 and 12 years. Warranties for tank-based units typically only last for between six and eight years. The longer lifespan of tankless units means that consumers save money in the long run and recoup the extra upfront cost to install a tankless water heater.

Are Tankless Units Ideal for Larger or Smaller Households?

Tankless units can supply around three to four gallons of hot water at any given moment. This differs dramatically from a tank-based water heater, which contains anywhere from 40 to 60 gallons of hot water at any time. For this reason, larger families may find that a tankless unit does not supply enough hot water for multiple family members to take showers simultaneously.

Additionally, if a household runs the washing machine or dishwasher frequently, a tankless unit may not keep up. To overcome this drawback, we recommend for homeowners to install a whole- house tankless water heater or install multiple tankless units that work in conjunction to ensure that they always have enough hot water to meet their needs.
