Water Heaters in Napa
Save Your Money (and Sanity) by Upgrading to a Tankless Water Heater
Because we’re known as the hot water heater experts in Napa, clients call us to ask us questions about water heaters all the time. Which water heaters are best? Is there a particular brand you recommend? What’s the right choice for my home?
In 99% of cases for homes in Napa, we end up recommending the same thing: natural gas or electric water heaters. Why?
That’s an easy question to answer. They’re efficient, they’re economical, and in the long run, they end up saving our customers thousands of dollars in energy bills.
It’s common sense. However, a lot of Americans don’t know how great tankless water heaters can be, because until recently, they mostly got installed in apartments in Europe or Asia.
We’ve prepared this little guide to the basics on natural gas or electric tankless water heaters. Want to know more? Give us a call!
How Do Tankless Water Heaters Work?
You that the water heater in your Napa home is located in your basement and is a giant tank filled with hot water, right?
The tankless hot water heater design ditches that concept entirely. Rather than heat a large volume of water and disperse it all over the house—which is really inefficient— the tankless model places individual heating modules near where the water is actually needed.
You’ll have a heater in the bathroom, a heater under your kitchen sink, etc. Whether it’s natural gas-powered or uses electricity, your hot water is heated up close to the source, and near instantaneously.
That’s why they’re often called ‘on-demand water heaters.’ Because the tank doesn’t need to empty, refill, and then heat up again, you have hot water 99.9% of the time, when you need it.
No more fighting over who gets the ‘good’ shower first thing in the morning!
What’s the Average Tankless Water Heater Cost?
Tankless water heaters used to cost more than their ‘tanked’ counterparts. They’ve been around since the late 1800s, but only wealthiest of families could afford them.
But today, this technology is more affordable than ever and easily within reach of anybody living in Napa. You might pay a little more up front for the individual heaters and the installation, which tends to be more complicated than the tanked models, but because you only heat up the water when you’re actually using it, you’ll save a bundle on your monthly power bill.
Think about it. A lot of energy goes into heating water, especially when you have a 40 or 50 gallon mass of water you’re keeping hot all the time, even when nobody’s in the house.
It’s pretty easy to see how switching to an electric tankless water heater pays for itself in just over a year. Which Tankless Water Heaters Are Best?
