If a tankless water heater is what your looking for, then you’ve come to the right place! There has been a lot of bad press in recent years about tankless water heaters. We have heard that they are “not reliable”, “didn’t work”, or “not user friendly”. The truth is that tankless water heaters are a great product. The problem usually lies with the installation. First you need to start with good quality units. Then you need to determine what size tankless you need. Finally, proper installation is crucial, especially when it comes to the proper gas line sizing. This is because, while they do use less energy, the gas must be delivered quickly when it is needed. Most tanked water heaters have existing 1/2″ gas lines which are insufficient for most tankless water heaters, and may require a new gas line.
