If you are in the market for a new water heater for your home or business, you may have come across information about tankless water heaters. They are the latest innovation in water heating and are gaining popularity quickly. These systems have many advantages for homeowners to enjoy.
The main difference between tankless water heaters and hot water tanks is that tankless models only use energy to heat your water when you turn on your tap, instead of paying to heat and store a huge tank regardless of using it or not. These systems have many other advantages for homeowners to enjoy including:
Lower utility bills, because you only heat water when water is flowing making this the most cost-effective way to heat your water. Depending on your usage habits and family size, you could save as much as 30 – 70% on your monthly energy bills!
Less chance of flooding. Most new models have flood prevention built-in, and tankless water heaters only run water when the tap is on.
You won’t run out of water and no more cold showers! For larger families, or for those who have frequent visitors, this is definitely a perk.
Lastly, they are a space saver, especially in smaller homes like townhouses, having a smaller water heater will help you get more out of your space.
Also called on-demand water heaters, tankless water heaters take up very little space compared to a traditional tank system. They quickly heat water without the need for a large storage tank. When you turn on the hot water tap, cold water travels through your pipes into the unit where an electric element or a natural gas burner then heats the water rapidly.
With this setup, tankless units deliver an uninterrupted and an unlimited supply of hot water. This steady flow of hot water is a fantastic benefit for those of you who love long showers or have large families living under one roof. You will enjoy plenty of hot water for washing dishes, laundry, and yourselves.
Tankless water heaters are an area of expertise for Harmony Heating & Air Conditioning Inc, and we are ready for all your tankless water heater installation and repair needs. Our expert technicians understand the new technology and systems so they can keep yours running smoothly.
As with any appliance or HVAC system, eventually, your on-demand water heater will need service, routine maintenance, or repairs. The Harmony Heating & Air Conditioning Inc team knows what to do to keep your hot water flowing.
Tankless systems do have some unique upkeep needs that our technicians know how to address:
Mineral Buildup – This issue can happen when your home or business has hard water. The buildup of minerals, such as calcium can decrease the unit’s efficiency. The Harmony Heating & Air Conditioning Inc experts can tackle this concern for you.
Corrosion – Typically, tankless water heaters experience less corrosion than standard units. However, because of the delicate computer sensors, even a small amount of corrosion can trigger a warning light or cause the system to shut down. Our crew can provide regular servicing to be sure this doesn’t occur.
System Overload – If two high-demand appliances run at once, the computer may not be able to keep up with the hot water demand. If this happens, it will shut down. Harmony Heating & Air Conditioning Inc can expand your natural gas line to help address this problem. Additionally, we can install a separate water heater for one of the high-demand appliances to take the burden off the home’s overall system.

We often recommend John Wood condensing tankless water heaters to provide endless hot water. This unit has a durable primary heat exchanger made of commercial-grade copper and a secondary heat exchanger made of Type 316L stainless steel. This combination helps prevent corrosion and prolongs the life of the heater.
With the John Wood brand, you should experience minimal service calls until it is time to replace it. Since tankless water heaters can last more than two decades, you will have a lot of worry-free years.
Our staff also uses the Noritz brand of on-demand water heaters. With over 60 years in the industry, Noritz is an innovator in water heater technology.

We trust Noritz to provide an excellent system that will serve you for years to come.
