Tankless Water Heaters

Tankless water heaters save energy and money when they are installed correctly. This type of water heater is also known as an “on-demand water heater” because the heating unit heats only the water traveling from the tank to the faucet rather than heating the entire tank. This means that no energy is wasted on heating hot water that isn’t needed. Saving energy also corresponds to saving money, with tankless water heaters corresponding to a 35% average savings in heating costs. This unbelievable amount of savings only depends on installing a heating unit that is the right size for its purpose. A correctly-sized heating unit is the key to a tankless water heater that can deliver an endless supply of hot water. Richardson Plumbing can help you determine the correct heating unit size, depending on whether you need a single-point, under-sink water heater designed to heat a single sink or a multi-point tankless water heater that can heat an entire house.


Tankless water heaters require installation by a qualified licensed technician. This requirement is due to the importance of warranty, permits, safety codes, and of course proper installation. If the tankless water heater is not installed to the manufacturer’s specifications, the warranty may be void. In addition, installation of a tankless water heater must meet safety and building codes, and depending on your location may also require a permit. A qualified technician will also make sure that you have chosen the correct kind of tankless water heater for your particular needs. Let one of Richardson Plumbing’s qualified plumbers in the Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati area make sure you end up with a tankless water heater that will deliver the volume and temperature of water that you need.

What to Look For

When deciding on which tankless water heater to buy, the most important consideration is where in your house you will need on-demand hot water. For example, some people need an on-demand water heater for a sink or bathroom they don’t use every day. People who live in a smaller home, on the other hand, may opt for a tankless water heater for their whole house. Before choosing a specific tankless water heater, it is important to determine where in your home you need it and how many gallons of water you need it to heat per day.


The repair necessary for tankless water heaters is minimal. Most homeowners with tankless water heaters won’t have to worry about replacing the heater, because with proper maintenance, a tankless water heater will last up to twenty years. Proper maintenance simply involves replacing parts of the water heater that wear out through normal use. When your tankless water heater isn’t heating properly, call the specialists at Richardson Plumbing for an estimate on repairs. We can repair most major brands of tankless water heaters.
