Tankless water heaters are energy-efficient solutions that provide a new way to deliver hot water in a home. Through on-demand style water heating, the heat exchanger produces just enough heating for water wherever it is required. Substantial energy is saved by reducing the amount of work done by the water heater.
About 14% of all the dollars you spend on energy bills each year goes toward heating and cooling costs. When you remove a traditional tank water heater, you can free up a lot of time and space for the things you love most. 14% may be reduced with proper sizing and installation of a tankless unit.

Let’s start by understanding what traditional water heaters are. Most people have electric or gas water heaters that have a storage tank filled with water. That water is continually heated to the temperature that you have selected so that it is available whenever you need it. The problem is that it is being heated 24/7, and you are probably only using water a small fraction of that time. So you’re paying to keep water heated when you don’t need it which means you are using more energy and paying more in utility bills.
A tankless heater doesn’t have a storage tank. With the tankless water heater installation service we provide, it can heat water quickly and deliver it to you when you need it… on demand. Gas tankless water heater and electric tankless water heater options are available. You will save on your energy bills with this more efficient way of heating your water.
There are some definite advantages for Indianapolis homeowners with a new tankless water heater…
A tankless water heater system will provide hot water for about 20 years. That’s about twice as long as a traditional water heater which typically operates for about 10 years. So, you won’t need to re-invest in a new water heater as soon with a tankless system.
Tankless water heaters are compact and mounted on the wall which means they don’t require as much space as a traditional water heater. A tankless system is a great option when the physical size of a new water heater won’t fit in the available area. Plus, by eliminating the traditional water heater, you’ll free up a lot of space for other uses.
Tankless water heater installation provides endless hot water on demand. Since a tankless system heats water as you need it, you don’t have to worry about running out of hot water when you’re the last in the family to get a shower. You’ll still have as much hot water as you want.
Tankless water heaters are a reliable source of hot water whenever you need it and at a preset temperature. If the unit is sized properly, you always have enough hot water even when you’re the fourth person to take a shower in the morning.
The upfront tankless water heater cost is higher, but with a higher energy efficiency rating you’ll save your money on tankless heaters over time. A traditional water heater is always using energy to heat and reheat your water. This may reduce your annual energy costs by as much as 35%. Why pay to heat water when you don’t need it yet? And why pay to keep it hot when you didn’t need it in the first place?
Tankless water heaters last longer than a tanked system. Schedule annual tune-ups to keep the water heater in service for 20 years or more.
Tankless water heaters require less maintenance. Sediment build-up and corrosion are not big problems for tankless water heaters like they are for tanked water heaters. Plus, maintenance doesn’t include draining and refilling a 40 – 50 gallon tank.
Tankless water heaters operate less and, therefore could be considered safer. Important safety features monitor water flow and water pressure and notify you of dangerous conditions.
While tankless hot water heaters are relatively low maintenance, sometimes system issues do arise. Your tankless unit may experience repair issues such as:
Your water heater won’t run right until repairs are made. Contact us at the first sign of trouble and have Mr. Plumber Indy provide elite service to keep your unit in top shape.
Tankless water heaters indeed require little maintenance, but make sure you don’t misinterpret that as no maintenance or you’re in for big trouble!
If you have hard water, maintenance is especially important. If mineral deposits collect in water heater lines, they restrict water flow and slow down flow rates. In this condition, the unit expends a great amount of energy and becomes quite wasteful. Continued operation in this shape damages components and lessens system service life.
The tankless water heater must be descaled regularly. This process requires a heavy vinegar solution to sit in the lines of the unit, then the solution was washed out for about 45 minutes to remove debris and the remaining solution.
