FAQs: Vancouver Tankless Hot Water Heaters
How Much Does A Tankless Water Heater Installation Cost? How Long Does Installation Take?
Costs vary from model to model and the type of unit that you choose. They also vary in sizes and capabilities. But what makes the overall system so expensive is the initial upfront costs that also include intensive labour. New gas piping and water lines must be properly installed, as well as additional electrical wiring when opting for an electric tankless water heater. Since prices typically change on a periodic basis, we invite you to give our office team a call so they can give you up-to-date estimates of multiple units and a price range for the installation service.
Given that your Vancouver plumber has completed inspection in advance and helped you remove your old water tank unit, the initial installation service can take up to three hours. Or more, if you’re having multiple units installed.
How Safe Is It To Install a Tankless Hot Water Heater? Can I Do It Myself?
A tankless water heater installation in Vancouver may require you to get a permit especially when it involves installing a gas-fire tankless water heater. Because it is a complex and dangerous process and local plumbing and electrical codes must be followed, hiring an experienced and licensed plumber is essential.
Improper installation can lead to floods, fires, electrical shorts, and gas leaks. These types of accidents are deadly and no home insurance will cover any losses if they learn that you installed it yourself.
What Are the Advantages of a Vancouver Tankless Hot Water Heater?
Once you have a unit installed, you will start saving on energy costs in the first month. Homes that normally rely on a 40-gallon unit every day can reduce their energy usage by 34% with a tankless water heater installation. Vancouver homeowners will also benefit from a unit that has double the lifespan of a conventional unit with a tank. As an energy saving method, these advantages are hard to top!
What’s the Downside of a Vancouver Tankless Hot Water Heater?
The major downside is the high upfront costs, which are typically the biggest dilemma that homeowners in Vancouver face. And as a water on demand unit, it can take longer for a tankless unit to deliver hot water, especially if you have a large household with high demand for hot water. Inconsistent temperatures are also common. That’s when your Vancouver plumber may suggest installing multiple units.
