Gas Tankless Water Heater Dealer In Sacramento
The idea of a gas tankless water heating system is that it heats your water as needed instead of heating water stored in a large tank. In Europe and Japan, tankless water heaters have been the norm for over 30 years, and they’re also beginning to gain popularity in the US.
Tankless water heaters last for 15-20 years longer than the traditional water heater. They can also save you a tremendous amount of money each month while conserving natural gas. A tankless water heating system can cost more than tank heaters, and they may require upgrades to your natural gas line or venting system. But for the right Sacramento home, tankless water heaters can pay for themselves.
How Tankless Water Heating Systems Work
To understand precisely how tankless water heaters work, let’s first review how standards water heaters work:
Water heaters store water in their large tanks, where it’s heated and held. The tank continually heats the water to be ready when you need it, meaning it must constantly maintain high temperatures. The energy your water heater spends heating water you’re not using is called “standby heat loss.”
Tankless systems get rid of the problem of standby heat loss altogether. They’ll only heat water when you need it—which is why they’re also sometimes referred to as “on-demand” water heaters. Eliminating that wasted energy makes tankless water heaters much more efficient than their tanked counterparts.
Tankless water heaters heat a small set of coils to extreme temperatures. As water passes through the waves, it’s heated. So tankless water heaters will provide instant hot water, and much less energy will be used to get it to you.
Should You Make the Switch?
When deciding whether or not it’s worth it for your Sacramento home to switch from your current system to a tankless one, you’ll have to consider several factors. Here are some benefits and drawbacks of tankless water heating systems.

Why Gas Tankless?
I am debunking the seven most common myths concerning gas tankless water heaters.
Too expensive? - Takes too long to heat water? - Do I have to change my gas line?
By Sidney Baysinger
Gas tankless water heaters have inevitably grown in popularity over the last decade because of their convenience in supplying unlimited hot water quicker and more energy efficiently. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t still common preconceived notions behind tankless technologies.
Some people often associate tankless water heaters with being too expensive or not providing enough hot water, which are all common myths about gas tankless water heaters.
As a result of these and other common myths, Sidney Baysinger, owner of Sacramento based “Water Heater Pros” and Phoenix-based “Tankless Pros Az” has recently launched a Tankless Truths Campaign, focusing on dispelling certain myths associated with gas tankless water heaters.
Let’s walk through the seven common misconceptions often heard, and unveil the truth behind them:
Myth #1: Tankless water heaters are too expensive to purchase and install
Over the years gas tankless water heater cost have dramatically decreased making them more affordable than ever before. The shift is seen in the price gap, mainly due to the cost of manufacturing materials increasing. With this, the cost of tankless units has become more affordable compared to many traditional tank-types, factoring in life span, gas tankless water heaters will outlast the traditional tank-type up to three times longer, and especially factoring in local energy rebates (due to a gas tankless water heater’s improved energy efficiency).
Myth #2: Tankless water heaters take too long to heat the water
Nothing is more frustrating than waiting for your mornings cold shower to get hot, and often customers believe having a gas tankless water heater will heighten that problem. Certain models of gas tankless water heaters will come with a built-in pump that will recirculate the hot water to your faucets and showers instantly, no more waiting for that cold shower to get hot, and you can adjust the recirculating times based on your needs for hot water, get piping-hot water whenever you need.
Myth #3: Upgrading to a gas tankless water heater means I have to change gas line
Advancements in gas tankless technology have created “condensing technology” eliminating the need for most gas line size modifications. For example, Navien NPE series incorporates a zero-governor gas valve, using a Venturi effect and creating turbine forced air technology, working together to regulate the right mixture of gas and air to produce energy-efficient combustion.
Myth #4: Tankless is more expensive to maintain than tank-type water heaters
In areas where hard water is prevalent, all types of water heaters need to be maintained regularly to avoid scale build-up. Tank-type manufacturers have stringent hard water maintenance requirements as well. In fact, in some areas, these requirements are more stringent than many tankless products. In addition, tankless units will often have notifications that remind customers that theunitsnit should be flushed.
Myth #5: Tankless is a new technology that isn’t proven yet
In fact Asia and Europe has been using this technology for many decades. Gas tankless water heaters have become more popular in the USA since the mid 90’s and since then, we have seen a steady growth in gas tankless consumer upgrade from the old traditional tank-type water heaters, and since 2010, tankless sales have been increasing at an unprecedented rate.
Some of the reasons for this growth in popularity stem from increase in new technology creating many more benefits.
Myth #6: Gas tankless water heaters won’t last that long
Navien brand NPE series condensing gas tankless water heaters are being built to last a lifespan of 25 years (with proper maintenance). Additionally Navien gas tankless water heaters have an energy efficiency rating of 96 percent or better. This is far superior from other tankless brands, and the common residential tank-types with efficiency numbers around the 60 percent range. And the higher the thermal efficiency, the more consumers can save and can qualify for local government and energy provider rebates, which helps lower the total cost of ownership even more.
Myth #7: Tankless water heaters will only supply hot water to a limited amount of faucets
Although this may be true for most electric tankless water heaters, this is not the case with gas tankless water heaters, properly sized units to your home based on how many bathrooms you have will supply piping hot water at most to all fixtures with all the faucets opened at the same time, unbelievable, new advanced technology.
