Are Tankless Water Heaters Good?

Have you ever wondered how good the new tankless water heaters really are?

Do you think they are "maintenance free"? Have you been told this?

Splash Plumbing operates in Orange County and surrounding areas installing both traditional water heaters and tankless water heaters. We have had trendous success with both!

Most of our residential clients have heard about tankless water heaters and done some research on them ..... but these days money is tight and most elect not to install because of the additional cost factor(s). I can honestly say that with financing programs, tax credits, Gas Company rebates and our very competitive prices, installing a tankless water heater in Orange County is not that expensive.

If you have already had a quote from another plumbing company in Orange County, give us a call at 877-HEY-SPLASH and let us provide you with a comparison bid!

Back to the question of "Are tankless water heaters good?" The answer is simply .... YES! I installed one last year in my home and absolutely love it! And as for the countless tankless water heaters we have installed in Orange County, we have had ZERO complaints! That's right ....... ZERO!
We have tankless water heaters in Mission Viejo, Aliso Viejo, Newport Coast, Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, Anaheim Hills and even in Costa Mesa!

One thing to consider though ...... tankless water heaters ARE NOT maintenance free. Quite frankly, we repair and maintain more units than we install! Why.......? Because the original installers did not properly inform the client of their responsibility to clean the tankless water heater heat exchanger and applicable filters.

How often do you have to do this? According to most manufacturers ..... yearly! (assuming you don't have a filter)

If you have any comments or ideas ... lets "Blog about it"
