TANK LESS ON DEMAND WATER HEATER PAGE
So your here on this site and you have found this page because you want a tank less water heater.  If you
stopped right now and called me I'm going to ask you, WHY??  Now your going to tell me, well my friend has
one and they really like it. Great, they are fantastic machines that make just about as much hot water as your
will ever need. You can take an hour long shower and get out and run a load of whites with hot water and you
won't have any issues.  You might tell me, well I want to save money on the gas portion of my bill. Well, that's
another good reason to have one because they use less gas than a tank style heater but it's not as much as
you might think. You might tell me that you want to get rid of the tank you have to free up space where the
current water heater lives. Once again another good reason because they are much smaller than a tank and will
mount on the wall where the old water heater lived.
TANK LESS WATER HEATERS ARE GREAT!!!! ARE THEY FOR EVERYONE? NO!!!!!! HERE IS WHY...        

First don't believe a lot of the stuff you read on these manufactures web sites or what someone has to say on
You Tube.  We live in San Francisco or somewhere nearby, things are different here than just about everywhere
else when it comes to tank less water heaters. We don't live in cookie cutter suburban houses and that can be a
good thing or a bad thing. As far as installing tank less water heaters it's bad. Most homes in SF are old and lets
face it the water heater and it's components can be in some interesting places.  In most SF homes we have to
deal with small gas lines, venting that just isn't up to code and the lack of a plug nearby to power the unit. In
some cases these issues can be upgraded and resolved and in other it just can't or is will cost so much money
you would be crazy to do it.  BELOW I WILL LIST THE PROS AND CONS. CALL ME FOR MORE DETAILS.

PROS
Endless supply of hot water
Small footprint
You will save $ on the gas portion of your bill
Be the cool guy on the block with the new tech

CONS
Cost......from scratch your looking at on average $4000-$6000 to install a unit
. Replacement units start at $2500
and up depending on what needs to be upgraded from the original installation.

It can take up to 25% longer for the hot water to get to your faucets than it does now
. We do have units that
have recirculation pumps built into the units to solve this problem.

No emergency water storage.. Your tank is gone
They also run on electricity so you have to factor in that cost
If the power goes out you have no hot water
I don't care who you talk to the life span on these units is not 20 years its about the same as a tank

Every situation is different and if you really want one th
en call us and we will set up and time for us to come and
look at your situation. Below are some pictures
, the pictures on the left and right side have all been installed in
the last six months. The center line are some of my favorites from the past
. Enjoy.....
We use Takagi, Rheem and Navian units only......
