Tankless Water Heater Services
If you’re considering upgrading your water heater, a tankless version could suit your needs nicely. The experts at Three Way Plumbing can help you decide if tankless water heating is right for your lifestyle and expectations, as well as the proper make and model for your home.
We’re certified in the installation and servicing of all the major manufacturers. If you decide to move forward, we can install a tankless unit and remove your existing storage tank.
We also repair tankless water heaters, including ones we didn’t install originally. If your unit is having performance or efficiency issues, trust our team to get it back up and running again in no time.
How Does a Tankless Water Heater Work?
Rather than storing 50 gallons or more of hot water 24/7, tankless units heat water on demand. Powerful gas burners or electric elements achieve the necessary temperature rise within seconds, sending hot water to the tap right when you need it.
Tankless water heating offers many benefits, including:
- Endless hot water supply
- Substantially lower water heating bills
- Lower risk of home flooding from a holding tank corroding through and leaking
- Double the life span of old tank-style water heaters since there’s no standing water
- Smaller installation space required
- Can be installed inside the home, outside the home, in garages, and in attics
- Highly efficient, great for the environment, and prevents the buildup of tanks in landfills

Frequently Asked Questions
How long do water heaters last?
When talking about traditional tank-style water heaters, there’s no definite answer due to many different factors that affect the life span of a water heater. The average life span is 10 to 15 years. We’ve seen many fail at six years, and we’ve also seen rare ones as old as 20.
Some of the factors include water pressure and water quality – chlorine levels needed to kill bacteria in your water supply, naturally occurring minerals, and sediment in the water supply.
Annual maintenance flushing of your water heater is recommended to remove the buildup of sediment and minerals from your tank to prevent the corrosion that occurs with tank water heaters from the inside out.
Do I need multiple water heaters in my home?
If sized properly for usage and gallons per minute used in your home, most homes don’t need more than one water heater. However, sometimes it’s beneficial under certain circumstances to have two water heaters rather than one large one.
Are tankless water heaters gas or electric?
What are the different sizes of tank water heaters?
There are many different sizes of water heaters when it comes to height, width, and circumference to accommodate different installations, like in a closet, garage, utility room, attic, or aqua hut, as well as different capacity sizes ranging from 28 to 100 gallons.
No one ever wants to run out of hot water when showering, so it’s important to understand usage and demand needed for demand times when it comes to gallons per minute.
Other considerations are tub sizes, multiple showerheads, body sprayers in showers, and the number of dishwashers or washing machines in the home, along with the number of full bathrooms and people living in the home showering/bathing, especially during maximum capacity times like holidays.
