TAP INTO THE UNLIMITED SUPPLY OF HOT WATER
What if your water heater could deliver endless amounts of hot water, eliminating waste and offering superior energy efficiency, resulting in significantly lower energy bills?
Water Heater Pros can help you turn this vision into a reality by installing a gas tankless water heater in your home. This hot water solution works in stark contrast to storage tank water heaters, which continuously use electricity or gas to keep the hot water warm, so it’s available for use. Instead, tankless water heaters, or on-demand water heaters, are installed at the exact location as your existing water and are designed only to heat water when you actually need it. This, in turn, saves a large amount of energy versus its storage tank counterparts. Plus, because no tank is necessary, on-demand water heaters save you valuable space and result in a steady stream of hot water when you need it most.
NEVER WANT TO RUN OUT OF HOT WATER AGAIN?
At first, this sounds like a grand promise filled with marketing hype, but it's true because it's based on how tankless water heaters work. Because tankless water heaters only heat water on demand as needed, you never actually run out of hot water like you can with a typical 40 or 50-gallon storage tank water heater.
HERE'S HOW THEY WORK
You open the faucet, and hot water demand gets heated as it heads to its destination in the pipes. Gas burners inside the tankless unit take care of the heating work. Once you close the faucet or the dishwasher completes its cycles, you turn off the shower, or you no longer demand hot water, the tankless water heater turns off instantly, stopping any further use of gas fuel until you require hot water again.
WHY A GAS TANKLESS WATER HEATER?
Improved energy efficiency can cut your hot water heating expenses by up to 40%.
Endless amount of hot water because it continually heats water only when you need it.
Installation flexibility. A tankless water heater is compact, taking up about the size of a carry-on airline bag for the average 1,500 to 3,500-square-foot home. This gives you more options for your unit's location and frees up the space where a tank-type would be.
Longer lifespan with a gas tankless unit, typically lasting years longer than a storage-tank water heater.
No heat waste. A storage tank water heater loses heat and wastes energy by continuously refilling and reheating the water in its tank.
SHOULD YOU GO WITH A TANK-TYPE OR TANKLESS WATER HEATER?
By now, tankless water heaters sound pretty good. They have been used commonly for the last 50 years in Europe, where energy costs are much higher than in Sacramento. Tankless water heaters may reduce your energy costs by up to 40%. Natural gas and propane-fueled models are more efficient than their electric counterparts; Water Heater Pros only services and installs tankless gas units.
The one potential disadvantage of a LOWER COST tankless water heater is its ability to supply hot water to multiple users simultaneously. If, for instance, the shower is used in several bathrooms simultaneously, you may need a tankless water heater that offers a higher BTU and flow rate. However, choosing Water Heater Pros as your hot water contractor isn't a problem! We are trained to correctly size tankless water heaters based on your home's size, your family's hot water needs, and your budget.

WHAT SIZE TANKLESS DO I NEED?
Here you will find a chart that shows typical gas tankless units, and based on the number of maximum BTUs and maximum "gallons per minute" (GPM) they can deliver to provide adequate hot water measured by the number of bathrooms in a home.
Gas tankless, 120,000 BTUH, 6.8 GPM, Equals a 1-Bathroom home
Gas tankless, 150,000 BTUH, 8.4 GPM, Equals a 2-Bathroom home
Gas tankless, 180,000 BTUH, 10.1 GPM, Equals a 3-Bathroom home
Gas tankless, 199,900 BTUH, 11.2 GPM, Equals a 4-Bathroom home
Tankless units may be cascaded or doubled up to provide for larger homes.
