Tankless Water Heaters in Dallas, TX
While today’s storage tank water heaters excel in reliability and efficiency, there is an increasingly popular alternative—the tankless water heater. Although the earliest tankless water heaters were actually developed over a century ago, it wasn’t until recently that the technology made them into major competitors to the traditional storage tank model.
Are you wondering if the tankless water heater would benefit your household? Or perhaps you already have a tankless water heater working to supply hot water throughout the home, but it needs repair or maintenance? Whatever the case, contact Frymire Home Services in Dallas, TX and we’ll ensure that you receive quality tankless water heater services.
How Do Tankless Water Heaters Work?
Tankless water heater systems transfer heat to the water running through the hot water lines via a device called a heat exchanger. This component is similar to the device that sends heat into the tank of a boiler. The benefit of this is that the water heats up without requiring that it be stored, eliminating potential heat loss.
Because the transfer of heat is activated by the movement of water through the heat exchanger, a tankless water heater only comes on when there is a demand for hot water. The systems are small and typically attached to a wall, and they can operate either from electricity or natural gas. Your tankless water heater maintenance needs will be minimal, relative to tank models, but this is a service our team provides as well.
Advantages of a Tankless Water Heater Installation
At Frymire Home Services we believe in helping you live to “A Higher Degree of Comfort,” and that means providing you with the knowledge you need in order to make an educated decision about the best water heater system for your home. Tankless water heaters do typically cost more to install than conventional water heaters, but there are a number of benefits that offset this initial cost:
- Energy-Efficient: Since tankless systems only use heat when there’s actually a demand for hot water, they consume considerably less energy per month than tank water heaters, which must keep the water in the tank at a constant temperature.
- No Running Out of Hot Water: Since you don’t have a standing supply of hot water to be depleted, a tankless system will not allow you to “run out” of hot water. This feature alone makes tankless systems a great option for larger households.
- Longevity: Without the strain of almost constant energy use, and the presence of a large tank of water that can eventually accumulate rust, a well–installed and -serviced tankless water heater in Dallas, TX will last years longer than a tank water heater.

Frequently Asked Questions About Tankless Water Heaters
Do Tankless Water Heaters Provide Instant Hot Water?
Yes, and no. The moment you turn the tap on, the heater will kick on. However, it takes a few seconds for the water in the pipe to clear the line and for the hot water to flow through.
Does Cold Weather Impact Tankless Water Heater Operation?
Unless the temperature drops well below zero, the impact of the weather on your tankless water heater will be negligible.
Are Tankless Water Heaters Cheaper Than Traditional Systems?
Yes, and no. Tankless water heaters are more expensive to purchase, but they are more efficient and will last considerably longer than a traditional water heater. Thus, while you spend more upfront, you will more than recover your investment as the years go by.
Can You Run Out of Water with a Tankless Hot Water Heater?
When our team finishes a tankless water heater installation, you can rest assured that you will never run out of hot water. As long as the gas bill is paid, the hot water will flow as reliably as Niagara Falls.
What Size Water Heater Is Ideal for a Family?
A typical family of five needs a tankless heater that delivers at least 10 gallons per minute. That is roughly a 27kW system. Our team can help you calculate the right sized hot water heater based on your family size and typical usage.

What Happens If You Forgo Regular Tankless Water Heater Inspections?
Any time you neglect maintenance on a water heater, you are inviting problems into your home. If you ignore regular maintenance check-ups and required repairs, small problems such as sediment buildup, loose connections, damaged fittings, etc. become major (and often expensive!) issues that can require immediate repair. We strongly recommend anyone who owns a tankless water heater have their system serviced at least once a year, or twice a year if the system is older, you have hard water, or you set it to a high temperature.
