Heating water in your Clackamas, OR, home is a costly proposition.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), water heating accounts for 20 percent of your home’s energy use. Keeping your tankless heater maintained can make a significant difference in your energy bills.

At Petra Heating & Air Conditioning, we always recommend regular professional maintenance and repairs for your Oregon home tankless water heater at a reasonable price. We believe comfort and cost savings should always go hand in hand.

Tankless Water Heaters

A tankless water heater only heats water when you turn on the faucet. The difference can save you hundreds of dollars each year in heating bills.

Tankless models also use up less space. Instead of trying to fit a storage tank that might hold up to 80 gallons of water in a utility room, a tankless system is a relatively small metal box that mounts to your wall.

Rather than storing heated water, a tankless water heater heats cold water on demand—whenever you turn on a faucet. No more waiting for your water to heat up.

There's no tank without the need to store gallons of water, making the tankless heater much more compact. Nor do you have to worry about coming home to a giant pool of water in your basement from a leaking water tank.

With this type of on-demand process, energy efficiency is high. You are only using energy to heat the water precisely when you need it, so this keeps your energy costs low by conserving water. You will more than make up the initial cost of your tankless model in energy savings over the long haul.

How Does a Tankless System Work?

Whenever you turn on the faucet or start your dishwasher, water passes by a heating element (either gas or electric) in the tankless unit and heats it. No water is stored waiting for you to use it. This is on-demand hot water.

Tankless water heaters have several advantages over standard water heaters. They’re much more efficient than storage tanks since they heat water only when needed. Plus they have a longer service life: a well-maintained tankless heat can last 20 years or longer.

They also have a much smaller footprint. You can mount a tankless version just about anywhere in your home, whether in a closet or a corner of your basement.

“I was so glad to speak with Rick about my water heater. Along with giving me a clear, detailed explanation of it’s current state, he explained how I could know if there was an issue in the future. Then, he kindly answered all my questions about water and heat alternatives and again clearly explained what would be most efficient and cost effective for my Lay-out!”
