Tankless Water Heater Install, Service and Repair

Tankless water heaters, also known as on-demand water heaters, provide hot water only when you need it, making them a popular choice for homeowners who want to save money on energy bills. While they require less maintenance than traditional water heaters, tankless water heaters still need professional installation, repair, servicing, and maintenance to ensure they are functioning efficiently and safely.


Installation

Installing a tankless water heater is a complex process that should only be done by a licensed professional such as our Onsite staff. Our licensed installers will ensure that the tankless water heater is installed correctly, taking into consideration factors like the size of the unit, the location, and the electrical or gas connections. An incorrect installation can cause numerous problems, including water leaks, poor performance, and even hazardous conditions.

During the installation process, our installers will typically follow these steps:

  • Assess the area where the tankless water heater will be installed, including the space and any necessary electrical or gas connections.
  • Remove the old water heater (if applicable).
  • Install the new tankless water heater, connecting it to the appropriate electrical or gas lines and making sure that it is level and secure.
  • Turn on the power or gas and test the unit to ensure it is functioning correctly.
