What kind of water heater do I need?

We highly recommend a tankless heating system, both for the energy efficiency as well as space consumption. With a tankless system, the heating is on demand, as opposed to constant (whether water is being used or not).

However, we realize that not everybody is interested in a tankless system, and our plumbing specialists will work with you to find the best solution to fit your needs. Our plumbing specialists at ABC can repair existing water heaters as well as install new ones in your home. We offer gas and electric models that are specifically designed to be in compliance with all San Antonio plumbing codes.

We also sell, service and repair both conventional tank water heaters and the latest tankless varieties.

What is the difference between tankless and traditional water heaters?

Conventional tank water heaters are the kind typically found in households across the country and have been for years. They are designed to use electricity or gas energy to heat water slowly & continuously at the bottom of the tank and then distribute the heated water through the top of the tank. These models are always heating water, and storing it for later use.

On the other hand, tankless water heaters heat water on demand, providing a continuous flow of hot water whenever you want it (as much as 14.3 gallons of hot water per minute continuously). They do not expend energy on keep water heated when there is no demand for hot water.

Will I save money in the long run with a new water heater?

We encourage the use of tankless systems. They are far more energy efficient, saving homeowners money in the long run. With a tankless water heater, you never run out of hot water, which can be great for larger families. Tankless heaters are also much smaller than conventional units since they don’t have to accommodate large quantities of heated water, so they can be installed in locations traditional water heaters wouldn’t fit.

They are expected to last up to 20 years, which is up to three times longer than a conventional water heater.
