Tankless Water Heaters

Tankless water heaters are a modern solution for an efficient hot water supply. Unlike traditional water heaters that store and heat water in a tank, tankless models heat water on demand, providing a continuous supply without needing storage. This design reduces energy consumption and eliminates the risk of running out of hot water during use.

Kramer & Co. Mechanical offers tankless water heater installation and service, catering to your hot water needs while promoting energy efficiency. Our team can guide you in selecting suitable tankless units based on household size and usage patterns. We handle the installation process meticulously, ensuring seamless integration with your plumbing system.

Why Choose Us?

A professional, fully licensed plumber should only install your new water heater. At Kramer & Company Mechanical, several Northwest Arkansas water heater installation and repair experts are available. While water heater installation may sound like a simple DIY project, we highly encourage you to call an expert.

We answer dozens of calls yearly from homeowners who’ve tried to fix or replace their water heaters only to find that they’ve done something wrong. Save money by hiring one of our technicians for your water heater installation. The installation is more complicated than at first glance.

Faulty installation could mean the risk of gas leaks, carbon monoxide poisoning, water damage, and shock. Please don’t take chances when it comes to your home or your family.

New Water Heater Standards

Ensure your water heater is up to the current standards in energy efficiency! At Kramer & Co., we follow the latest advances to offer you new products that are more energy-efficient to lower your operating costs. It also means that the new “face” of water heaters (potentially larger size and more sophisticated design) may force a re-location in your home and increase installation costs. One impact is an increase in overall tank size – up to two (2) inches in diameter and one to two (1-2) inches in height. Units over 55 gallons will have to use condensing technology.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why might I need to replace my water heater?

Over time, water heaters can corrode, lose efficiency, or simply fail. Common indicators include: reduced hot water output, leaks around the base, rust in the water, or noises coming from the tank.

How do I know if my water heater needs a repair or a complete replacement?

If you're facing minor issues, such as a faulty pilot light or thermostat, a repair might suffice. However, if your heater is over a decade old, has frequent breakdowns, or is corroding, it might be more cost-effective in the long run to replace it.

How much does it cost to replace a water heater?

Costs vary depending on factors like the type of water heater, its capacity, labor charges, and geographic location. Most water heater replacements require at least a few add-ons from existing installation to bring water heater up to current code. It's best to get a quote from a licensed professional to get an accurate estimate.

Can I install a new water heater myself?

While it's possible for individuals with experience in plumbing and electrical work to install a water heater, it's generally recommended to hire a licensed professional. Incorrect installation can result in inefficiency, water damage, or even dangerous conditions.

How long does it take to replace a water heater?

Typically, replacing a tank water heater takes about 2-4 hours, while a tankless installation might take longer, depending on the specific requirements and setup of the home.
