Tankless Water Heaters

Tankless Water HeatersTankless water heaters, which are also commonly referred to as instant or flash water heaters, are already extremely popular in Europe and Japan and are rapidly becoming more widely used in the US. They have several advantages over traditional water heaters and our plumbers recommend them to any homeowner in the St. Louis area. These types of water heaters are much more efficient and they can help you conserve resources and energy, and our professional plumbers can install them promptly and professionally throughout your home.

Conserve Energy with Tankless Water Heaters

One of the biggest problems with traditional water heaters is that they constantly keep a tank full of water and maintain its heat. The water needs to be kept at high temperatures so that it can be ready for you at the moment you need it. Maintaining the temperature of the water at all times requires loads of energy that is, for the most part, wasted.

Traditional water heaters store heated water in their tanks, then transport it to you when you need it. The farther away from the plumbing fixture you’re using the tank is, the longer it will take for hot water to reach you. By the time it arrives, it will have also lost some of its heat.

Tankless water heaters can eradicate this problem of wasted energy, which can help you significantly lower the amount of energy you use in your St. Louis home. These water heaters heat water only when it is needed by using coils that are located near all of our faucets. By heating water instantly when you need hot water, tankless water heaters use much less energy than traditional water heaters.

Tankless Water Heaters for Safety in Second/Vacation Homes

If you have a second home, vacation home, or any property that you don’t stay in permanently, a tankless water can help to make it much safer while you’re away. Turning off all appliances while you’re not staying in a property is necessary for the prevention of damage while you’re away, and it also help you conserve energy, but traditional water heaters are never fully turned off. With a traditional water heater, your secondary property in the St. Louis area will be expending totally wasted energy while you’re away, and there’s no telling when a leak may occur.

Tankless water heaters get rid of this safety concern—plus, when you come back to the property, you won’t need to wait for the tank to heat up completely before you can have access to hot water.

Energy Efficiency and Water Conservation

Traditional water heaters store heated water in their tanks, then transport it to you when you need it. The farther away from the plumbing fixture you’re using the tank is, the longer it will take for hot water to reach you. By the time it arrives, it will have also lost some of its heat.

This doesn’t just test your patience, but it also means that you’ll be wasting water as you wait for the hot water to reach you.

Tankless water heaters are a perfect solution to this problem. They’ll help you ensure that you waste as little water as possible in your St. Louis home, which is better for you and for the environment.

“I called the phone number listed and spoke to the owner, Eric. He was at my home within in a 1/2 hour and gave me a very reasonable quote. Rivers Plumbing where here within two days to perform the repairs on the shower / tub faucet. I was told it would take about 4 hours and they completed all the work in 3 hrs. I would recommend this company for their expert service and pricing. ”
