What's the Buzz About Tankless Water Heaters?

October 30, 2019 | Blog

Nobody likes taking cold showers or washing their dishes without hot water. That’s why water heaters have become an essential appliance in your home. For years, tanked water heaters have been standard. However, tankless water heaters have grown in popularity across America. So what makes tankless water heaters so special?

What is a Tankless Water Heater

A tankless water heater is pretty much what it sounds like. They heat water instantly, without the use of a tank. When you turn on your hot water, cold water travels through the unit where either a gas burner or an electric element heats the water. You won’t run out of hot water, meaning you can take as long of a shower as you want!

The Space Saving Water Heater

One of the biggest appeals of a tankless water heater is its size. When you think of water heaters, you are most likely going to think about the large tank machines that take up precious storage space in your home. A tankless water heater is roughly the size of a suitcase and is mounted on the wall.

Benefits of a Tankless Water Heater

There are quite a few reasons why tankless water heaters have become popular in recent years. Here’s a quick rundown of what makes tankless water heaters popular in homes across America:

  • Hot water is instantaneous. No more waiting for the shower to warm up.
  • You are less likely to be scalded by overheated water.
  • Tankless water heaters are more energy-efficient and save you money in the long run.
  • Their lifespan is twice as long as tank water heaters.
  • They take up less space and have a sophisticated design.
  • There are fewer safety concerns surrounding tankless water heaters.

Very Knowledgeable

I recently had several plumbing leaks repaired and couldn’t be happier with the prompt service I received from Parker and Sons. They are very knowledgeable, friendly, reasonably priced, and do quality work. I would definitely recommend them to my family and everyone. I would trust them to repair any leak in the house.

Stacey C.

Amazing Service!!!

Amazing service!!! Called and came the same day within 2 hrs. Our toilet had to be re-fitted and snaked. They did a beautiful job on the re-fitting and got the large piece of plastic out of the toilet. Will definitely be recommending them to friends and family. Great service, great people, hard to find these days!!!

Shakira C.

Excellent Service! We had some work done on our kitchen and Parker and Sons were able to come out to our house and help us with our remodel. Great guys and great service. I would recommend them to anyone needing a plumber service.

Brad B.

Great to Work With

Jim and his guys are great to work with. Had Parker & Sons come out to take a look at an AC unit at one of my rental properties. Unit is in the attic. Had to replace a coil on it and did a great job. Will definitely use again.

Jeff C.

Amazing Staff!

I have referred Parker and Sons to all of my customers and I would not think of referring anybody else. They have been great and very punctual. All of the plumbers and office staff have been amazing!

Miguel B.

Reasonable Prices

I was in good hands today with journeyman plumber Mark Rizley. He remained until all was better than before. He replaced a PRV and improved a mediocre repair recently done by another well known local company. The price remained reasonable despite the extra effort needed for the job. Well done Mark! Parker and Sons will be my first call in the future.

Todd D.

Fantastic Company!

This is a fantastic company with outstanding professionalism, quality of work, and customer service. While their prices are extremely competitive, their work doesn’t feel cheap like some of the companies you can hire of off Craigslist or on a FB yard sale page. This is a reputable company with proven work and licensed, skilled technicians.

Ben A.

Fair Prices & Excellent Work

Have used Parker & Sons 3 different times, once for a huge complex plumbing repair and twice for smaller jobs. Fair prices and excellent work/fast response time every time.
