3 Reasons To Choose a Tankless Hot Water Heater
A heat wave of a different kind
Does it seem like someone is constantly in the shower in your house? In between swimming and other outdoor activities, we tend to take more showers, sometimes multiple ones, each day. Have you ever been on the receiving end of an empty hot water heater? No fun. What if a more energy-efficient device could put an end to “running out of hot water?” Meet the tankless hot water heater.
Reason One to Install a Tankless Hot Water Heater
Also known as “on-demand” units, tankless hot water heaters heat water only when you turn the faucet. Because they heat water as needed, they do not store water. This means the tank will not run out of hot water. Get as much hot water as you need, when you need it!
Reason Two to Invest in a Tankless Hot Water Heater
Compared to traditional storage tank hot water heaters, tankless versions do not experience standby heat loss. Tankless units also eliminate the cost of keeping 40-50 gallons of water, for example, heated indefinitely in a storage tank. Tankless hot water heaters can be fueled by electricity, natural gas or propane.
Homeowners have found Energy Star-qualified tankless water heaters use 30 to 50 percent less energy than units with tanks. This can save the average family about $100 or more each year. Savings vary depending on water usage, fuel costs and model efficiency. Talk to Apollo Home for a free estimate and to determine which model makes the most economical sense for your family’s use.
Also, tankless water heaters tend to last longer than the average storage tank heater. A normal lifespan for a tank heater is around 10-15 years compared to almost 20 years for a tankless hot water heater. This ultimately saves you money too, as you’ll need to replace the unit less often.
The best way to extend the life of your heater is to routinely care for it with a preventative maintenance plan, like the Apollo Care Plan.
Reason Three to Join the Tankless Hot Water Heater Revolution
Who wouldn’t love a little bit more storage space? Tankless water heaters have a much smaller footprint than a tradition tank unit. Whether this gives you more storage space for Christmas decorations in your mechanical room is up to you.
Some homeowners even opt to install a second tankless hot water heater in an upstairs closet or laundry room if the square footage or household occupancy warrants it. A tankless water heater might also be a strong selling point if you’re planning on listing your home in a few years.

"Ernie & Mike did a superb job on my new furnace and A/C installation. Despite having more than a day’s work to do, they came in and stayed until the job was done. They were organized, efficient, and protected the rest of the house well. Got both furnace and A/C installed the same day. Ernie was courteous, informative, and clearly knew his job better than anyone I’ve encountered before. The units look so good guests now get The Tour of our new system. Apollo is clearly not a fly-by-night company. I would recommend them to anyone in need of a new furnace and/or A/C."

"I called Apollo because of a water leak I thought I had in our upstairs shower going into the kitchen. Robbie came and assured me everything was fine & looked at all the other plumbing. He ended up changing a few pipes for our washer & clearing a drain. He was very nice & knowledgeable with all my questions. I ended up signing up for the care plan & was very happy with my service."

"The team at Apollo exceeded my expectations. As a business owner, my attention to the details and commitment to providing excellent service is high. From the sales rep. to the installation team, everyone’s performance was outstanding. For example, the installation team went to great lengths to protect our floors, placing floor runners and across the wood floors and up the stairs. They even were spot washing walls upon their departure. I highly recommend this company."

"We scheduled an estimate AND a tune-up. We knew something was wrong with our furnace, but hoped we could make it through the rest of the season. Upon telling Bill what our furnace was doing, he warned us immediately what the possible outcome was going to be; a cracked heat exchanger. He watched the flames roll backward, tested carbon monoxide levels, which were so high they meter’s last reading was 5,600 before saying “high”. He immediately shut it down, tagged it, and explained that with levels that high and children in our home he wanted off right away. He continued his inspection and showed us via a camera that not only was it cracked in multiple places, but had holes all over it. He gave us a few options for repairing it; his knowledge as well as genuine concern was beneficial and refreshing. Luckily we also scheduled an estimator, Micah, to come too and we were able to get costs between repairing and replacing (with several options). We decided to replace with a much higher efficiency furnace and one sized properly to our home. Hands down, not only did they both provide us great service and knowledge, but without sounding dramatic, they may have saved our lives. This was our first time calling Apollo, but it won’t be our last."

"Apollo is an excellent company. I always receive great service. Alex A. was professional and friendly. He kept me informed during the process of checking my furnace and heat pump to make sure they were working properly. The company makes sure you are notified who is coming and when they are on the way. All my interactions with the company have been wonderful."
