Energy-Saving Tankless Water Heaters

According to Energy.gov, tankless water heaters, “Don’t produce the standby energy losses associated with storage water heaters, which can save you money.” In general, tankless water heaters are more energy efficient than the alternative, but depending on how much hot water you use, the magnitude of that difference changes.

For example, as Energy.gov also points out, if you use 41 gallons or less of hot water each day, a tankless water heater can be 24 to 34 percent more efficient.

On the other hand, if you use an especially large amount of hot water, tankless water heaters are up to 14 percent more efficient. Depending on the amount of hot water you need, the value of a tankless water heater may go up or down.

It’s worth noting that even though the relative efficiency of a tankless water heater may diminish with a larger volume of hot water needs, the savings you earn will still be greater in real dollars. Energy.gov estimates that the average family will save over $100 annually in energy bills alone with a tankless water heater.

Need help with hot water?

    When should I replace a water heater?

    A good rule of thumb for water heater lifespan is around 8-10 years. There are many factors that go into how long a water heater will last including water quality and whether the unit has been routinely flushed or not

    Is a tankless water heater a good option for me?

    Gas tankless is definitely a good option for larger families. You’ll have a virtually endless supply of hot water capable of serving multiple fixtures at once

    Water Heater Leaking?

    Shut off water

    If you’ve come to find your water heater leaking the first thing that needs to be done is to shut off the water supply to the tank. There should be a water supply valve on the incoming water supply on the right side of the tank. If you have a older style valve it will be a gate type valve that needs to be turned clockwise until it can be turned no further in order to shut off. If you have a ball type valve, simply turn the handle perpendicular or 180 degrees to shut off. 

    Turn off power supply 

    For gas water heaters you will need to turn the control knob on the gas control valve located on the front of the water heater to the off position. If it is an electric water heater you will need to locate the proper breaker in the electric panel to shut off power.

    Emergency Plumber

    Slide Michelle T. - Warminster, PA "We initially called McGinnis for an emergency hot water heater replacement. Pat came out within a couple hours and his work was clean and extremely reasonably priced. Having been a fan of McGinnis' timeliness and commitment to the work, we called him again to have additional plumbing work completed, unrelated to the hot water heater replacement. Pat came out to review the work, quoted us again at a reasonable price, and came back to do a full day's work - not leaving until everything was completed. He is extremely knowledgeable, gives great suggestions on how best to accomplish the end result, and was friendly throughout. We've found our go-to plumber and would highly recommend McGinnis Plumbing"
    Slide Chris D. - Abington, PA We have used McGinnis plumbing on numerous occasions. From garbage disposal installation, faucet installation, clogged pipes, and much more Involved jobs, like drilling concrete and replacing lines. There’s no company that comes close to the professionalism, knowledge, and rapid response time. Pat quickly diagnosed and effectively fixed every issue without a glitch with no recurring issues. There’s no job too big or small. Takes pride in his work and always reaches out and follows up making sure everything is running smooth. Having an honest and trustworthy company in the neighborhood is a great piece of mind. A+. Highly recommend.
