Is A Tankless Water Heater Right for You?
Your hot water heater is an appliance that many of us take for granted. Until you run out of warm water in your morning shower or face a steep energy bill for your large business, you probably don’t think too much about the type, efficiency or condition of your hot water heater. Nonetheless, it plays a critical role in your plumbing convenience and few of us are willing to go without one.
There are two main types of water heaters: a traditional water heater and a tankless water heater. It is common for homeowners and business owners to consider making the switch from their conventional system to a tankless model. Tankless water heaters are not new but, they’ve recently gained more attention due to their valued advantages.
A tankless water heater system is exactly what you imagine, a water heater that does not require a storage tank. Instead, a tankless water heater can provide an endless supply of hot water on demand to any and every fixture in the home. Tankless heaters are designed to only heat water when it needs to be hot. This is in contrast to traditional heaters that heat and store large volumes of water 24 hours a day.
If the following benefits interest you, it may be time to go tankless with your water heater:
Less Space Needed. While traditional water heaters are large and floor mounted, tankless systems are known for their compact design. Many can even be mounted on the wall, which is perfect for homes or businesses that are limited in space.
Less Maintenance and Repairs. With tankless water heaters, you won’t have to worry about issues such as leaking and rusting like you would a traditional system.
Less Monthly Expense. Since tankless models only heat water on demand, they can save average households up to $100 or more per year. An estimated 20% of a home’s total energy costs are related to delivering hot water, so a tankless water heater investment may be well worth it for the long-term savings in energy and monthly bills.
Less Replacement. Tankless water heaters are highly durable and can last for 20 years or more, which means they easily pay for themselves over the course of their lifespan.
Still not sure if a tankless water heater is the best option for your home or business? Give us a call at Bynum & Sons Plumbing. When helping customers decide on a tankless water heater, we consider important factors such as capacity, location, local building codes, fuel type and safety concerns.

Installers were great and very friendly. They appeared to know what they were doing, and I have had no problems with the Water Heater since the installation. They arrived well within the appointment window, and called before arriving. Prices for services were reasonable. I would have given them 5 Stars, but they never reinstalled the door they had removed to facilitate the installation. I must admit I was very surprised when I came home from work to see the door leaning up against a wall.
I found Bynum and Sons through my local Home Depot store. I needed a water heater at the house I had just bought. Bynum and Sons did a great job. They bought my water heater from home depot and brought it to my house for me. The installer was nice, professional, and fast. They hauled away my old water heater so I didn't have to deal with that. I would definitely use them again for my future plumbing needs!!!! There price was also better than the other plumber I checked.
Anthony arrived within the allotted time window and did a great job replacing my kitchen faucet. He found an issue with the soap dispenser installation but he quickly resolved it. He went the extra mile, very much appreciated!
