Enjoy Instant Hot Water with a Tankless Water Heater!
Unlike traditional tank-type water heaters, tankless water heaters don’t constantly heat and hold hot water in a large tank. Instead, they heat the water instantly right when you need it, then stop heating it when you turn the hot water off. For this reason, they are also called “on-demand” water heaters. This saves energy by not continuously heating water. It also ensures that you’ll never have to take another cold shower again! Without a tank, these water heaters are more compact and can be installed in smaller spaces.
Tankless Water Heater Installation
If you’ve never had this type of water heater before, choosing a tankless water heater can be very strange. Instead of tank size, you need to consider the total volume of hot water needed at one time in your home. A tankless water heater can also fit into much smaller spaces, and depending on the fuel source, it may not need venting or a lot of clearance. Since tankless water heaters can last 20+ years, it’s important to choose a good location that benefits you in terms of aesthetics and performance.
DIY Tankless Water Heater Installation
Tankless water heaters are smaller and less intimidating than tank-type water heaters, leading some homeowners to believe that a DIY installation might be easy. However, a tankless water heater still involves handling plumbing, electrical, and gas connections (in the case of a gas tankless water heater). Local codes may also require a licensed plumber to do the work. If you plan to install your tankless water heater by yourself, here are the steps you’ll need to research and follow:
- Upgrade your gas line – Because they generate a significant amount of heat at one time, tankless water heaters require more gas when heating than tank-type water heaters. You will most likely need to run a larger gas pipe from your gas meter to your new tankless water heater.
- Remove your old water heater – Make sure to turn off water, gas, and electricity to the old water heater before removing it. Check with your local sanitation or recycling company for information on how to dispose of your old water heater properly.
- Decide on a location and mount the water heater – For a gas tankless water heater, select a location that will allow you to vent it to the outside. Pay attention to the manufacturer’s specifications for clearance all around the unit. You will need to build a mounting box and secure it safely to the wall so you can mount the tankless water heater 4” out from the wall.
- Connect the gas line – Connect your tankless water heater to the gas line. You’ll also need to install a gas shut-off valve, tee, and sediment trap. Connect everything carefully according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
- Install new water lines – You’ll need to connect new hot and cold water lines to your existing water lines, carefully following the manufacturer’s instructions for your tankless water heater. This will involve cutting and soldering, as well as various steps to ensure that the connections are tight and leak-free.
- Install the pressure relief valve – A pressure relief valve is a safety measure to release pressure if it builds up too high in the water heater. Install the pressure relief valve in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
- Install the exhaust vent (flue) – This involves cutting a hole in the wall to run the vent pipe to the outside.
As you can see, installing a tankless water heater is a complex process that requires knowledge of plumbing, electricity, natural gas, and safety codes. It’s best to hire a licensed, certified, and experienced professional who knows exactly what processes to follow to check that every step is successful. By hiring a professional you can avoid fires, carbon monoxide leaks, water heater malfunction, and code violations.
