Why condos in Alexandria are going with a tankless water heater and using Alexandria’s plumbing contractor M.E. Flow to install them?

Time to replace your water heater? Not sure if you’re ready to make the switch to a tankless water heater? You desire the greatest benefit of having an endless supply of hot water which makes tankless water heaters very attractive– but now there is another reason for Alexandria residents to opt for tankless.

As we explained in a recent blog post due to recent changes by the National Appliance Energy Conservation Act (NAECA) that took effect in April of 2015, there are changes to water heater energy factor (EF) requirements in the code that regulate the manufacturing of water heaters. The day has come where changing out your water heater with an equal replacement has gone–the new replacement water heaters are larger due to the EF requirements. Replacement water heaters simply are larger and many won’t fit in the area where the original closet water heater was stored. So, that explains why condos and small apartments are replacing their traditional storage tank water heaters and switching to tankless water heaters–so they will fit in the storage closet.

Other benefits a tankless gas water heater system can provide:

  • use less energy
  • more hot water
  • no cold shower
  • saves space
  • longer life span
