Our team of expert plumbers specialize in water heater sales, repair, service, and installation for all types of water heaters including gas, electric and tankless water heaters.

People who can’t start their day without a hot shower in the morning are the ones who will suffer from this the most. The more people in a household are dependent on the use of the water heater, the greater the discomfort will be.

The three most commonly damaged components that lead to a lower amount of hot water, or even the total lack of it, are damaged dip tubes, broken heating elements, and faulty burners.

Sometimes a homeowner will need a few parts replaced, and other times their water heater is simply at the end of its lifespan and a new one will need to be installed. Either way, Fitz’s Plumbing Repair will handle the job.

If you end up needing a new water heater installation, you might want to consider a tankless water heater to provide constantly-hot water and to help save on your utility bill.


Why Are Tankless Water Heaters So Popular?

Tankless water heaters are becoming the top choice for homeowners because they save money, energy, space, and can last for up to two decades—twice as long as a traditional water heater.

While tankless water heaters may cost a little more up front, they’re a great money-saving investment for homeowners in the long run. Traditional water heaters are less expensive at first, but the issues that arise with them add up to cost more over time. A tankless water heater is much smaller, can save up to 40% of electricity, provides an unlimited supply of hot water, and has many other benefits for homeowners.

Especially if you have a smaller household or are looking for ways to save space, you should consider a tankless water heater installation. In general, households that use less than 40 gallons of hot water daily will improve their energy efficiency by up to 34% with tankless water heater installation.

How Do Tankless Water Heaters Work?

Unlike standard water heaters, tankless water heaters don’t keep an entire tank of water hot for 24 hours a day. They only produce hot water when it’s needed.

A tankless water heater is typically connected to the main water line that enters your home. It works by heating the water as it enters your home, instead of pulling from a reservoir tank like traditional water heaters do. Because a tankless water heater isn’t constantly running, it’s more energy-efficient and saves more money.

If you’re interested in tankless water heater installation, our experts at Fitz’s Plumbing Repair will help determine if your home is a good candidate for it.
