If you live in a household where hot water is a precious commodity, especially in the morning, Rub A Dub Plumbing, your Squeaky Clean Plumbers serving Tyler, TX and surrounding communities has the solution. Go TANKLESS with a Tankless Water Heater!
Simple: Efficiency and Comfort!
The Tankless Water Heater flows hot water as needed.
Heating water on an as-needed basis is essential to not only to energy efficiency, but the comfort of your family.
Here’s how a tankless water heater works:
Rather than using a storage tank filled with hot water, tankless units are more efficient.
The tankless units preferred by Rub-A-Dub Plumbing are Energy Star Certified because they use a secondary heat exchanger that consumes 9 percent less energy than standard gas tankless units. By extracting more heat from the combustion gas and cooling it, condensation occurs. With a hot water flow rate at a rate of 2–5 gallons per minute, natural gas tankless units have higher flow rates than their electric counterparts.

Even the biggest gas model has limits when it comes to supplying adequate hot water for large households. Running hot showers and dishwashers at the same time can max out a single tankless water heater. Connecting two or more tankless water heaters in parallel can solve demands for simultaneous hot water usage. Additionally, separate tankless units for appliances like washing machines and dishwashers can be installed.
Homes that use 41 gallons or less, require water heaters capable of being 24%–34% more energy efficient than regular storage tank water heaters and 8%–14% more energy efficient for homes using around 86 gallons per day.
Although tankless water heaters cost more than conventional storage water heaters, they last longer and have less operating and energy costs. With a life expectancy of more than 20 years and easily replaceable parts they are a smart investment.
Proper installation and maintenance of your tankless water heater can optimize its energy efficiency. Proper installation, even by the “persnickety plumbers” at Rub-A-Dub Plumbing, depends on a variety factors including:
*local water quality (hard water),
*local building code requirements, and
