Water Heaters Q&A

Q: What are the advantages of a tankless water heater vs. a traditional water heater?

A: Tankless water heaters never run out of hot water, they have longer life expectancy, and are 30% more efficient on average than traditional water heaters. Although tankless water heaters initially cost more than traditional water heaters, they reduce your monthly water heating costs so they actually save you money in the long run.

Q: What is the cost savings of a tankless water heater vs. traditional water heater?

A: A traditional water heater is 70% efficient. A tankless water heater is 98% efficient because the tankless only heats the water when there is a call for hot water. A tankless system can save 25% to 60% on your water heating bill.

Q: What is a flush and fill?

A: During a flush and fill our technician will drain all of the water from the water heater, flush sediment and refill the tank. This extends the life of a water heater. All water heater tanks should be drained and flushed free of sediment every 12 months to bring your water heater back to original manufacturers specifications and potentially avoid invalidating your manufacturer’s warranty.
