Is a Tankless Water Heater Right For You?
Many Somerset homeowners are discovering the benefits of having a tankless water heater. If you’re on the fence about one of these systems, here are a few key benefits to consider.
Greater Energy Efficiency
Tank-style water heaters store water and heat it until it’s ready for use. Keeping the water hot even when you’re not using it wastes energy and costs you more money on your energy bill.
Considering that your water heater is one of the most significant energy users in your home, it’s worth checking out alternatives.
Tankless water heaters take up less space than tank-style systems, making them ideal for smaller homes, apartments, or people who want to maximize their home space. Many tankless systems can be wall-mounted or tucked away in a closet.
Unlimited Hot Water
Tankless water heaters provide an endless supply of hot water, making them perfect for families with high hot water demands.
The average lifespan for a traditional water heater is about 15 years. Tankless water heaters can last twice as long.
If you’re still on the fence about a tankless water heater installation, call the expert plumbers at Quahog Plumbing to find out more.
What Is a Point Of Use Water Heater
Point-of-use water heaters are connected directly to a sink and provide hot water more quickly, saving water and money.
The further away the sink is from the water heater, the longer it takes for hot water to come out of the tap. Think about how much water you waste waiting for it to get hot, and you can see the advantage of one of these units.
If you have a large family and struggle with getting enough hot water, or if you’re planning on adding a bathroom that might put too much strain on your centralized water heating system, a point-of-use water heater may be the perfect solution. Adding a point-of-use water saves water without sacrificing comfort or efficiency.

Our Tankless Water Heater Repair Service
For many homeowners, tankless water heaters are the perfect choice for providing hot water efficiently. While tankless water heaters are known for their longevity, they can break down like any other appliance, especially if you fail to perform routine maintenance.
Here are the most common scenarios that warrant a call to a plumber.
No Hot Water
If the water isn’t getting hot enough or you’re not getting any hot water at all, it could be a problem with the heating element or the fuel source.
Sometimes, a tankless water heater problem can affect other appliances, such as your dishwasher or washing machine. If you notice these appliances aren’t performing up to their standard, call a plumber for an inspection.
The Water Heater Constantly Shuts Off
When the water heater shuts off by itself, it usually means the filter is clogged. Tankless water heaters generate extremely hot exhaust, and if it’s not adequately ventilated, it can cause the system to shut down.
Strange Tasting Water
Sediment buildup is usually the cause for foul-tasting water in tank-style water heaters, but since the tankless system doesn’t use a reservoir, there’s little chance for that to happen. So, if you’re getting a strange taste from the water, call a plumber for a check-up as soon as possible.
