Tankless Water Heater Installation
We are Chicagolands Tankless experts. We install hundreds of tankless water
heaters and we have had phenominal success in this area. We also service
hundreds of tankless’ each year as well. On the service side we
see so many interesting things. It is very seldom (less than 1%) that
the reason we are performing a repair is a fault of the tankless equipment.
99% of the time the reason the tankless is failing is that it was installed
improperly. The items that are most commonly done improperly are the gas
piping, and the flue piping. Additionally, not every home is really the
best suited for a tankless water heater. When our plumbers discuss tankless
as an option for a home owner we look at the big picture. We survey how
the hot water is used in the home, how much hot water is used in the home,
the layout of the water, gas and flue piping in the home as well as if
it is even possible for a tankless to be installed properly with the existing
infrastructure. One example of a situation where it is not possible is
a condominium building where the existing gas lines are not adequate and
the ability to increase their size is not possible. This very example
is ofen one of our service calls. This happens when a heating guy that
is not even licenced to install a water heater or a inexperienced plumber
tells a customer that they can have a tankless and they go ahead and install
it(incorrectly). The worst part is that the tankless will try to work
for as long as 2, 3 or even 4 years with the undersupplied gas before
the damage gets to a point that the heater starts to fail. Often times
by the time that happens the original installer is long gone or will refuse
to warranty because it has been more than a year. At that point we are
called as the experts and we unfortuantly have to give the very bad news
to the owner. Sometimes we can salvage the situation but sometimes the
unit has to be removed and another option has to be installed. The thing
to remember is that when it comes to tankless the installed is FAR more
important than the equipment. Even the best equipment installed wrong
will fail, however the lowest quality equipment installed properly can
give you 20 plus years of trouble free service.
More and more people are choosing tankless water heaters over traditional
tanks these days, and for good reason. Tankless water heaters use gas
or electricity to provide hot water on demand, reducing standby energy
losses from storage tanks that cost you money.
In addition, tankless heaters typically last about twice as long as standard
heaters. And numerous tankless heaters qualify for a three hundred dollar
energy rebate, saving you even more!
However, your tankless heater needs to be professionally installed for
optimal energy efficiency, and no one knows tankless heaters better than
we do. With state-of-the art technology and an expert staff of plumbing
specialists, we have the tools to tackle any job, big or small, residential
or commercial. Plus our experience and relationships with manufacturers

water, then we customize a system designed to fit your needs, budget,
and home. Your project will be supervised from consultation to cleanup

sinks, etc. Whether your plans are for residential or commercial applications,
one thing you can count on is saving energy, which in turn helps save
