Nowadays, tankless water heaters have become an increasingly popular option for homeowners all around the globe. Compared to the traditional storage of tank water heaters, tankless water heaters provide many benefits. While there are many benefits to installing a tankless water heater, it might still not be the best for your home or situation.
So, before you purchase a new water heater, consider the following points below:
HOT WATER DEMAND
Tankless water heaters are designed to heat water on demand, instead of storing preheated water for later use. You will wait a little longer for water to heat and travel to the tap, but a tankless water heater can offer you with an endless supply of hot water in comparison to its traditional counterpart. The downside, however, is that you cannot utilize too many hot water-consuming taps or appliances all at the same time - this actually depends on the capacity of your tankless water heater. Some tankless water heaters might not be able to keep up with your home’s demands, so make sure to research a tankless system first before buying it.
Cost is definitely a major factor for most homeowners when purchasing a new water heater. In general, tankless water heaters are more expensive than the traditional tank water heaters. However, do not let the cost hinder you from switching to a tankless system. Although tank models are lower in price, tankless water heaters are more efficient, and they also have a longer lifespan offering long-term low operating costs. You should consider the payback period of purchasing a tank or tankless models before making your decision. You will find that a unit that is more expensive upfront will definitely cost you less in the long run.
There are some state and local utility programs that offer incentives to those homeowners who install energy-efficient equipment such as tankless hot water heaters. These incentives help offset your installation costs. You may contact your utility company to ask for such incentives, and if you may qualify when you install a tankless water heater.
A traditional water heater requires a certain area for installation, and this consumes valuable space within your home. Tankless water heaters, on the other hand, are much smaller and they are typically mounted on the wall. Tankless models are ideal for applications where the installation space is limited. For instance, if you live in a smaller home or condo, then investing in a tankless water heater can definitely make a significant difference in your available space.
When our old oil furnace finally broke down we decided it was time to finally convert to natural gas and finally install central air conditioning at the same time. Knowing it was going to be a significant investment for us, we wanted to make the right choice. Twintech came highly recommended by a friend and we were not disappointed. From the first contact with the salesperson, until the final touches on the installation, we were so pleased with their service. Everyone from the company was so friendly, efficient and a pleasure to deal with. Best of all, the cost was very competitive. We would certainly recommend Twintech to anyone requiring HVAC work in their home.
Mitch from Twintech came out for our annual furnace inspection. We found him to be friendly, conscientious & he left the work area clean. We were also very impressed with the thoroughness of the job he did. This is the 2nd job weve had Twintech do for us & have been very happy with the results for each. We highly recommend this company. Thank you, Mitch, Dave & Greg.
Work was done on schedule, professionally, according to quote and with minimal inconvenience to building users. Very happy with the end result. The only area for improvement from my experience - need more timely quoting process.
The team was great! Very knowledgeable, professional and extremely helpful. A few days after install the unit didnt seem to be working, user error, but within minutes of contacting them..on a Saturday.. a tech was on the phone troubleshooting with us. I highly recommend Twintech for your cooling or heating needs. They stand by their products and a pleasure to deal with.
During the hottest week in the summer our old A/C decided to call it quits. I called Twintech Heating & Cooling after receiving a referral from a family member; came highly rated for being an honest, family-run business, who appreciates their customers. Dave was able to accommodate my hectic schedule and book a late evening appointment to walk through the specifics. Greg and Mitch arrived exactly on time a few days later, were very polite and friendly, and within a couple of hours had a new unit up and running. I also received a follow-up call to ensure we were happy with the Amana.
They were on time and very professional. I'm so glad I decided to go with Twintech, thanks!
Timely and appreciated - this was during the hottest days this year when our Air and Furnace way.
Efficient. Professional. No BS or overselling. What was promised, was delivered at a cost-effective price point.
Down to earth.
Professionally done and took care to cover all entry floors to the house for the installers to remove the old furnace and install a new furnace.
I also made recommendations of the tankless water heater that we had installed and items to address. We did not know they also installed tankless water heaters.
Price was not the cheapest nor the most expensive of my quotes. It's the quality of the installation that makes for a good AC system. The twins' knowledge & professionalism was evident in the small details:
Very clean work. Greg made sure that the refrigerant level & temperature were correct. They reinstall the insulation & vapor barrier around the wall. The outside electrical cords were secured to the wall. Proud to support this local company. Thank you.
Great team of guys came to do the work. Very professional. Arrived on time worked very efficiently and were very clean. They answered any questions we had without hesitation. The air conditioner works great and is so quiet. I highly recommend them and they don't try to up-sell anything right from the start.
