Rochester NY Tankless Water Heaters

Rochester NY Tankless Water Heaters

There has been a lot of controversy surrounding tank less water heaters the last 5 years, some people like them and some don’t. I am here to give you the pros and cons about owning a tank less water heater. I personally own a tank less water heater and have had one for the last 3 years. It is very similar to a gas heater to heat your home with. It has a heat exchanger on the inside and only runs when you need it. One of the main reasons I got a tank less water heater is so I would not have to worry about running out of hot water! In the master bathroom, the shower has two shower heads, one for me and one for my wife. In the winter I like to run both showers at the same time and I like to take a longer shower. I have yet to run out of hot water and I love it! The last reason I like a tank less water heater is that it can be maintained. I can clean the heat exchanger with vinegar every 6 months to combat Rochester’s hard water. With a tank water heater you cannot do this.

Pros and Cons of Tankless Water Heaters Rochester NY

There are cons to having a tank less water heater and the main issue is Rochester’s hard water. If the heater is not serviced after 6 months I start to notice a difference in the volume of water because of the sediment. All of the aerators for the faucets have to be flushed out and the heater cleaned with vinegar. After this has been done, the volume of water increases back to normal but having to maintain it every 6 months gets old. Overall, I like my water heater but it needs a lot of attention. If you own a tank less water heater or have a comment, please send me your thoughts. I would love to hear someone else’s point of view.

I made an appointment to have Leone come out to repair my toilet fill valve and shower spigot. They had some truck issues but Andy communicated timing to me as best he could. Jamison came out and knew right away what needed to be done to repair both problems and had both issues repaired in about an hour, including running out to grab a part and coming right back. Jamison was very helpful and professional. Would recommend to friends/family.

Leone Plumbing did a great job replacing a hard-to-reach, stopped up pipe in our home a few weeks ago, mid-COVID19 shutdown. The plumber wore a mask, gloves, booties and was responsible about social distancing. He responded promptly, on time, and the price was reasonable. All is well now with our plumbing thanks to Leone Plumbing!
