Electric or Gas-Fired
In an electric heater an electric element heats the water while in a gas-fired heater a gas burner heats the water. As a result, Tankless Water Heaters deliver a constant supply of hot water. Typically, hot water is generated at a rate of 2 – 5 gallons per minute. Gas-fired heaters will produce higher flow rates than electric heaters. By installing a “whole house” type Tankless Water Heater or two or more Tankless Water Heaters, connected in parallel you can have hot water on demand throughout your home. Speak with one of our specialists to advise you on the best system for your family.
INSTANT HOT WATER SYSTEMS
There are many manufacturers of tankless and instant water heating systems. At Family Plumbing, Heating & Air, Inc. after years of experience installing and servicing units we can provide you the homeowner with exceptional value along with quality from several major, national and professional makers of instant hot water systems.
HOW THEY WORK
Tankless water heaters heat water directly without the use of a storage tank. When a hot water tap is turned on, cold water travels through a pipe into the unit. Either a gas burner or an electric element heats the water. As a result, tankless water heaters deliver a constant supply of hot water. You don’t need to wait for a storage tank to fill up with enough hot water. However, a tankless water heater’s output limits the flow rate.
Typically, tankless water heaters provide hot water at a rate of 2–5 gallons (7.6–15.2 liters) per minute. Gas-fired tankless water heaters produce higher flow rates than electric ones. Sometimes, however, even the largest, gas-fired model cannot supply enough hot water for simultaneous, multiple uses in large households. For example, taking a shower and running the dishwasher at the same time can stretch a tankless water heater to its limit. To overcome this problem, you can install two or more tankless water heaters, connected in parallel for simultaneous demands of hot water. You can also install separate tankless water heaters for appliances — such as a clothes washer or dishwater — that use a lot of hot water in your home.
ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES
For homes that use 41 gallons or less of hot water daily, demand water heaters can be 24%–34% more energy efficient than conventional storage tank water heaters. They can be 8%–14% more energy efficient for homes that use a lot of hot water — around 86 gallons per day. You can achieve even greater energy savings of 27%–50% if you install a demand water heater at each hot water outlet. ENERGY STAR® estimates that a typical family can save $100 or more per year with an ENERGY STAR qualified tankless water heater.
The initial cost of a tankless water heater is greater than that of a conventional storage water heater, but tankless water heaters will typically last longer and have lower operating and energy costs, which could offset its higher purchase price. Most tankless water heaters have a life expectancy of more than 20 years. They also have easily replaceable parts that extend their life by many more years. In contrast, storage water heaters last 10–15 years.
Tankless water heaters can avoid the standby heat losses associated with storage water heaters. However, although gas-fired tankless water heaters tend to have higher flow rates than electric ones, they can waste energy if they have a constantly burning pilot light. This can sometimes offset the elimination of standby energy losses when compared to a storage water heater. In a gas-fired storage water heater, the pilot light heats the water in the tank so the energy isn’t wasted.

LET OUR EXPERTS FIND YOUR SLAB LEAK!
Slab Leak Symptoms
- The sound of running water when all water is turned off.
- A hot spot on the floor could indicate a hot water line leak.
- Cracks in walls or flooring.
- Mildew or excessive moisture under carpets could indicate your slab is cracked.
- High water bills – Although a high water bill could indicate a water leak behind the wall or in your pool, plumbing under the slab is also suspect.
Finding Your Slab Leak
Breaking into a slab or pool deck without positive confirmation of a leak location is unacceptable. Don’t let anyone dismantle your property just to search for leaks. Finding a slab leak requires a thorough process with technical expertise.
Locating leaks non-destructively requires the use of modern tools such as electronic amplification equipment and electromagnetic pipeline locators. With the proper equipment, leaks can be found and repaired with minimal disruption to property. In many cases, only a single floor tile needs to be removed and replaced.
Slab Leak Repair Options
Once the leak has been located under the slab, our leak specialist will provide repair options. Family Plumbing, Heating & Air, Inc. strives for the least destructive method when repairing.
Repair Options May Include
- Spot Repair: open up the slab at the spot of the leak and repair leaking pipe. This option is cost effective for newer construction.
- Repipe or Reroute: replace the entire line that was leaking. This is most effective for older plumbing systems that have a history of leaking.
- Epoxy Pipe Coating: in-place pipe coating is applied through the inside of plumbing. This is mostly prescribed for a system that has a series of small leaks rendering the normal repair cost prohibitive or if it is too inconvenient to dig up the slab.
PARTIAL OR WHOLE HOUSE REPIPING
Do You Have…
Leaky Pipes • Wet Foundations • Corroding Pipes • Low or a Dramatic Drop in Water Pressure • Bad Water Odor or Taste • Rusty or Brown Water
If your home has any of the above you are most likely a candidate for repiping. As pipes age, rust and corrosion build up on the inside of the pipe, constricting the flow of water. As less water is able to flow through your pipes, it becomes difficult to run more than one fixture at a time. Rust buildup inside the pipes mingles with the water and is very unhealthful. Ignoring the problem will allow the rust to eventually eat through your pipes resulting in total water pressure failure, massive water damage and mold from leaking pipes. Copper repipe is the solution to these problems.
Enjoy higher water pressure, cleaner and better tasting water after copper repiping Use the dishwasher, do your laundry, flush the toilet and take a shower all at the same time without losing water pressure.
