Tankless Water Heaters
A tankless water heater, as its name indicates, does not keep a tankful of hot water at all times. It heats water only when a hot-water faucet is opened, and so is also called an “on-demand” water heater. A Tankless Water Heater Installation Spring TX can cost a good deal more initially than a standard tank unit, but it typically saves enough in energy costs to pay back the investment within three to five years. The average life expectancy of a Tankless Water Heater is about 20 years (depending on the model). Another advantage: you’ll never run out of hot water!
Consult King James Plumbing to choose a unit large enough to supply all the hot water you may simultaneously need. Some tankless units can push up to 11 gallons per minute, depending on the size and brand of the water heater. This supplies enough hot water for two or three faucets (including shower faucets) or appliances at a time. In addition to a Tankless Water Heater Installation Spring TX (whole house unit), you may also purchase a smaller “point-of-use” unit to supply hot water for, say, a single bathroom. Many of these units are small enough to fit inside a cabinet.
There are two types of Tankless Water Heaters, condensing units and non-condensing units. The process during which vapor turns into liquid is called condensation. It happens when hot gas gets in contact with a cold surface. When it comes to tankless water heaters, due to the intense heat which increases the temperature of water in only a few seconds, water can turn into steam very quickly. The heating process produces exhaust gases which, once they cool down, become liquid once again. The problem is that the acidity of the condensation is strong, and it can corrode the ventilation units. This is why at King James Plumbing we recommend installing a condensing Tankless Water Heater Spring TX. Here is how a condensing water heater works: once you turn on the switch, the process of heating water through combustion and gas burner begins. Then, exhaust gases are produced, and they actually contribute to heating the water inside the unit since they produce high temperatures. That’s why condensing water heaters are more efficient than the non-condensing ones; energy-efficiency is amazing, it can go up to 98%. In addition, cheaper ventilation materials can be used because the temperature of exhaust gases is around 100 F instead of the 400 F temperature of the exhaust gasses from a non-condensing unit.

King James Plumbing’s Tankless Water Heater Installers Spring TX will remove your old water heater and select a suitable location for your new Tankless Unit. We will take care of installing the electric receptacle (to power the unit), gas supply line, and the vent pipes that will run out of the walls or up through the roof. We will paint the venting to match your exterior roof color to maintain the cosmetic value of your property. If venting out of a wall is not feasible, you may need to have the pipes run up and out of the roof. In this case, all horizontal runs should be sloped upward, so condensed water runs back into the water heater. In the attic, King James Plumbing will make sure all the proper pitches and height requirements (distance from roof) are met.
