Tankless Water Heater

Dependable Service is ready to manage all tankless water heater repairs, maintenance, and installation for your Myrtle Beach home or business. Tankless water heaters have grown substantially in popularity versus the traditional water heater.

What is a Tankless Water Heater?

Tankless water heaters are the latest technological advancement available in water heating.  They are small, roughly the size of a small travel suitcase, and are more effective than conventional water heaters in almost every way.

It is important to know that there are two different types of tankless water heaters: point-of-use and whole-home. Point-of-use tankless water heaters are strategically placed in locations where the heater manages hot water at a specific fixture or appliance. Whole-home tankless water heaters, as the name suggests, address the hot water needs throughout an entire home.

The purpose of tankless water heaters is to provide a continuous stream of hot water on-demand.  Whole-home tankless water heaters will never run out of hot water, regardless of how many showers are consecutively taken.

 

Tankless Water Heater Benefits

Our licensed plumbing team strongly recommends tankless water heater solutions for both commercial and residential spaces because there are so many benefits to upgrading to one. Here is a list of a few of them:

  • Energy efficiency: Unlike conventional tanks that are always heating water, tankless heaters only heat on-demand thus saving energy in the process.
  • Lower monthly utility bills: Tankless water heaters do tend to cost more than conventional tanks at installation, but thanks to their energy efficient nature, they typically yield lower monthly utility bills.
  • Endless supply of hot water: Point-of-use tankless water heaters will eventually run out of hot water, but whole-home tankless heaters can be counted on for never having a cold shower again.
  • Space saving: Tankless water heaters are small and may be placed in utility closets, attics, basement, or crawlspaces.  They may be hung from walls or even placed outside.
  • Longevity: Properly maintained tankless water heaters typically last between 6 and 10 years.  Most conventional tanks last about 10 to 15 years.

customer review

“Dependable Service Plumbing & Air sent a pressure washing company out to clean my entire driveway, when only three small spots were unintentionally put on the corner of my driveway when my neighbor was having a replacement water heater installed. Tommy, the owner of Dependable Service Plumbing & Air, came out to look at my driveway right away, and he had Winston out to clean not only the spots off, but my entire driveway, including my front porch. Winston was very professional, as he explained the difference in concrete between my driveway and my front porch. He also explained the reason for some bad rust stains that were there as a result of metal objects that were mixed into my driveway concrete by my builder. He did an excellent job on everything, and my driveway is now clean enough to have it coated with a light concrete paint (two coats) that I had already contracted out to have done. Caretaker Services Pressure Washing did such a good job of cleaning (about 2,200 lbs. pressure on my driveway & about 400 lbs on my front porch with a household cleaner first) that my coating contractor told me that what is left of my rust stains will all be covered over by the light colored paint. I am very pleased, as he gave me a great education along with a great cleaning job! Also, I will now use Dependable Service Plumbing & Air as my plumber for all my future plumbing needs, as they did a great job for my neighbor!” –-Bill B.
