Tankless Water Heater

Tankless Water Heaters in Dayton

If you are a homeowner, you know how expensive maintaining a home can be. Depending on the size of a household, the cost of monthly utility bills can be a hard pill to swallow. Advances in-home appliance technology may offer some relief to homeowners looking to lower their monthly bills and extend the expected lifespan of their appliances.

One such advancement is the tankless water heater. Tankless water heaters offer homeowners a longer life span on the equipment than a conventional water heater and reduced energy costs. For homeowners that are accustomed to traditional water heaters, the installation and maintenance of a new tankless water heater can be daunting. Summers Plumbing Heating & Cooling can install your home’s new water heater and provide the annual services needed to maintain the system over time.

Tankless vs Traditional 

According to, the average household spends between $400-$600 annually on heating its water. This accounts for 14%-18% of all utility costs. But what if a home could get the hot water it needs when it needs it without having to pay to have an appliance maintaining that supply?

Hot water on demand and only when you need it is one benefit of a tankless water heater. Unlike traditional water heaters, which employ gas or electricity to maintain a large quantity of water at a set temperature at all times. Tankless water heaters sit idle until a hot water faucet is turned on. When that happens cold water travels into the tankless unit where it is heated to the desired temp by either a gas or an electric-powered heating element. The heated water then travels through the pipes and out the faucet at a rate of 2-5 gallons per min. Gas-powered tankless units can heat a larger volume of water at the same time as their electric counterparts. Because water is heated when it is needed instead of having hot water on standby, tankless water heaters save homeowners money because there is no energy lost in heating the water with tankless units like there is with a traditional water heater.

With upfront costs, a traditional water heater will cost less than tankless and last 10-15 years. Tankless models are more expensive but a well-maintained unit can last 20 years or more. For homeowners that are short on space, tankless water heaters are a great alternative to the large bulky holding tanks of a traditional water heater. Tankless water heater’s small size makes them easy to install almost anywhere in a home. For large homes or households with increased hot water needs, you can install multiple units, able to operate simultaneously to meet a home’s hot water needs.

When a homeowner is considering the switch to tankless, proper installation and maintenance are key to ensuring a long and efficient life span. Our friendly technicians at Summers Plumbing Heating & Cooling can help homeowners identify if a tankless water heater is the right fit for their home and provide all services needed from installation to annual inspections and maintenance.

Tankless Water Heater Repair in Dayton

In order to get the most use out of a tankless water heater, it is important that the unit be inspected and serviced regularly. We recommended annual service on a home’s water heater. Homeowners should consider more frequent checks if the water heater is set to a high temperature or if hard water is present in your area. In homes with hard water mineral deposits can build up in the system, preventing normal heating and decreasing overall efficiency. In homes with tankless water heaters, a professional should be called in to inspect the system if any of the following are experienced.

  • Insufficient water pressure.
  • There is a reduction in the hot water supply.
  • Water coming out of the faucet has an odd color or smell.
  • There are strange sounds coming from the home’s tankless water heater.
