Whether you decide to install a tankless water heater yourself or hire a plumber, the cost for the project will depend on your needs and the installation features you want.
A plumber will most likely pull the required permits, and the cost will be factored into the overall bill. You may need two inspections, one to inspect the gas line and the other to check the entire setup and finished installation. These two inspections will likely cost an additional $100-300, depending on the location of the work.
There are several different types of tankless water heaters available, ranging in price from under $100 to $300 for a point-of-use electric model. This model is especially convenient because it can fit under a sink or close to your washing machine. It is lightweight and non-corrosive, and will save you money in the long run because it uses less water. It also helps you save water, so it’s great for a home with a smaller bathroom.
When choosing a tankless water heater, you need to know how many units you need. Most tankless water heaters have a capacity of between 0.5 and two gallons per minute. Choosing the correct unit for your home is important, because a large household may need several units. You may also need to prioritize water usage and purchase a point-of-use unit to ensure that you always have hot water when you need it.
