3 Things to Know About Tankless Water Heaters Before Making the Switch

June 1, 2023

Are Tankless Water Heaters Right for Your San Jose Home?

Tankless water heaters have been gaining popularity among San Jose homeowners due to their energy efficiency and cost savings. Before making the switch from a traditional water heater, it’s important to determine if a tankless water heater is the right fit for your home.

Consider factors such as your household’s water usage, the size of your home, and your budget. Tankless water heaters are typically more expensive to install upfront, but can save you money in the long run on energy bills. If you have a large family and use a lot of hot water, a tankless water heater may be the best option for you. Conversely, if you reside in a small home and consume minimal hot water, a conventional water heater might be a more economical option.

Tankless Water Heater Installation and Maintenance in San Jose

If you’ve determined that a tankless water heater is the right choice for your San Jose home, it’s important to find a reputable plumber for installation and maintenance services. Tankless water heaters require professional installation due to their complex nature and specific installation requirements.

When selecting a plumber for the installation, look for one with experience and expertise in tankless water heater installation. Additionally, regular maintenance is important to ensure the longevity and efficiency of your tankless water heater. Consider scheduling annual service appointments with a trusted plumber to keep your tankless water heater running smoothly.

Potential Issues with Tankless Water Heaters

While tankless water heaters offer many benefits, there are also potential issues to be aware of. One common problem is mineral buildup within the unit, which can affect its efficiency and performance over time. This can be mitigated with regular maintenance and descaling, but it’s important to be aware of the issue.

Another issue to consider is the potential for inconsistent water temperature with multiple simultaneous uses. While tankless water heaters can provide endless hot water, their output may not be sufficient to supply hot water to multiple sources at once. This can be addressed by selecting a tankless water heater with a higher flow rate or installing multiple units in your home.

While tankless water heaters offer many benefits, it’s important to consider if they are the right fit for your San Jose home. Considerations such as budget, home size, and water usage should be taken into account when making the decision. If you do choose to install a tankless water heater, be sure to select a reputable plumber for installation and maintenance services and be aware of potential issues such as mineral buildup and inconsistent water temperature.

Bella is very knowledgeable about tankless water heaters. She determined that the heater that I purchased from Amazon was the wrong model. She went above and beyond the call of duty. She drove me in her car to the UPS store so I can return the heater and then drove me to the supplier store in San Jose (Pace Supply) so I can buy the correct one. She is very honest and showed me the wholesale price of the heater and used her coupon to get me the wholesale price. Umed, the technician, is an expert and did a great job installing the unit. He arrived on time, was very polite, and cleaned the area after his work was done. Bella and Umed put the customer first and provided an excellent service. I highly recommend United Plumbing because of Bella and Umed, their honesty, great service and expertise.

Technician Beck came on thanksgiving day, working from 3pm till almost 9pm, to replace a new water heater. In the middle of the installment, he even had to go back to his office and pick up new parts. It was very difficult to set up the tubes at my place since the space for the tubes/water heater was limited. Technician was very patient and friendly the whole time. The pipes after Beck’s work are better designed. I am very grateful they are willing to come on a big holiday like thanksgiving, getting the challenging work done without any complaints. Otherwise it would be a cold shower thanksgiving for us. Highly recommend.

United was quick to do an inspection and quote to replace our 20 year old tank water heater for a tankless and was able to start the job the same day. Professional and great service and the price was the lowest I received out of 3 or 4. Highly recommend!

Yuri was great! Yuri came to inspect the pipes that were hearing while the water is running but unfortunately we weren’t able to hear anything at the time of the inspection. Yuri was able to install a new faucet in my kids bathroom. If you are looking for a plumbing company use United Plumbing, from the office to the field the service was great! I will definitely use Yuri and United plumbing again in the future.
