Location In our area, the groundwater can be pretty cold in the winter months. The temperature of the water will affect the speed and flow. We’ll explain this more when we meet you.
Know the Flow If you think you will need to run the washing machine or dishwasher while someone else is showering, assume a larger gallons-per-minute (GPM) rate will be on order to meet your overall water needs. Take into account water usage, too: A bathroom needs less water than a kitchen, a dishwasher less than a shower, and so on. Also, give some thought to the type of showerheads that you have. We will want to talk to about the effect low flow showerheads can have on system performance
Look into Rebates States sometimes have rebate programs that can help toward the cost of a tankless water heater. Ask our technician about rebates when he visits.
Understand the Payback Balance the cost of your unit with your ongoing operating costs. According to the U.S. Department of Energy’s Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy website, tankless water heaters can be 24 to 34 percent more efficient than a traditional tank-style water heater, depending on a home’s daily demand for hot water.
Fuel Type Your tankless water heater will use natural gas as a fuel. We will design the proper gas line sizes and venting system for your unit.
