Tankless Water Heaters

If you’re not aware of what a tankless hot water system can do for you, then you need to speak with the highly trained, tankless water heater experts at Justice Plumbing, the only certified Rinnai Pro‘s in Hood County.

With a tankless water heater, your home’s cold water is heated only when you need it, and it stays hot until you’re done using it. This results in a limitless hot water supply and little to no wasted energy usage. No more worrying about having no hot water for your bath, shower, clothes or dishwashing machines. A tankless hot water system heats the water on demand, right when you need it.

YOUR ESSENTIAL APPLIANCE

The Heart of Your Home

Think of plumbing as your home’s vital arteries, supplying critical fluid—in this case, hot water—to critical areas at critical times. At the center of this system is your hot water heater. If it fails to perform as needed, everything it supports—showering, bathing, washing dishes and clothes—will fail too.

How long does a tankless water heater last?
The life expectancy (or useful lifespan) of a Rinnai tankless water heater is up to 20 years. Actual life is impacted by water quality, usage and proper maintenance. For comparison, a tankless water heater lasts about twice as long as a tank water heater, making them a better value in the long run.
Why does a tankless water heater cost more than a tank water heater?
A traditional tank water heater is the most common type in the United States. These tank heaters use older, less efficient technology to gradually heat cold water at the bottom of the large tank. That means that the water in the tank is constantly being heated, waiting for the moment when you need it. Rather than storing water, tankless water heaters use heating coils to heat on demand as you need it. Tankless water heaters are more energy efficient, use less physical space and provide technology not typically available with tank water systems.
What type of regular maintenance does a Tankless Water Heater require?

There are two types of periodic maintenance that your service technician should perform to keep your tankless water heater in top shape. It’s important to note, the time in between necessary maintenance will depend on the water quality in your home.

  1. The in-line screen filter should be checked periodically for debris and cleaned.
  2. The unit should be flushed annually to keep it free of scale and lime, which can shorten the water heater’s lifespan over time.

Can I still get hot water if the power is out?
If you experience a power outage, your Rinnai Tankless Water Heater will not operate. However, the Hugo X-1 Battery Backup, designed specifically to run your Rinnai tankless unit without power for multiple days, will also keep your computer or cellphone powered until power is restored. The Hugo X-1 is available now for order from your local Rinnai Ace Dealer.
How does a tankless water heater work?
Rather than storing water, tankless water heaters use heating coils to warm the water as you need it. That’s why tankless water heaters are often called “on-demand water heaters.” When you open a tap or start an appliance such as a dishwasher, the tankless water heater recognizes the need and begins to deliver hot water when and where you need it. This is much more energy efficient for hot water heating versus traditional tank water heaters, which constantly heat water, even when none is needed.
How much does it cost to install a tankless water heater?
Installing a tankless water heater may be more expensive than installing a traditional water heater tank because certain homes may require changes to some of the HVAC ducts or installing certain necessary plumbing pipes. The cost varies based on a number of factors, including where you live, how your home is constructed, and which Rinnai tankless water heater you select.
