Roto-Rooter Minneapolis Announces Recommendation that Homeowners Consult with Professionals before Installing Eco-Friendly Water Heaters

Tankless “on-demand” water heaters have recently gained a lot of attention among homeowners who are adopting eco-friendly and cost-efficient practices. Roto-Rooter Minneapolis encourages wider use of these resources, but also notes that these options may not always work for everyone.

In recent years, the growing attention on eco-friendly solutions has inspired many homeowners to retrofit, rebuild and develop greener homes. While these efforts are admirable, some may find that their homes are not always ready to adopt a modern appliance or solution that works to reduce waste, energy and money. As a trusted plumbing and drain services company, Roto-Rooter Minneapolis remains committed to informing all of its customers of how they can improve and maintain indoor plumbing. When it comes to adopting eco-friendly plumbing solutions, this company works to educate and create a better environment through its ROTOGreen program.

Roto-Rooter Minneapolis notes that one of the many things homeowners do to improve the eco-friendliness of their home is replacing a conventional water heater with tankless “on-demand” water heaters. These modern appliances have gained appreciation across the country, as they do not require continuous heating of large storage tanks to supply hot water to a home. However, a recent article from The Greener Ideal indicates that every homeowner needs to address a certain set of requirements before making the decision to purchase and install a tankless water heater.

For instance, the article urges homeowners to observe ventilation, hard water presence and energy connection options. If these and other factors need to be fixed or adjusted beforehand, a consumer can expect the final cost to be much higher than just switching out an old water heater for an energy-efficient appliance. The article explains, “Just like normal water heaters, tankless heaters come in different sizes to accommodate different needs. They are also more efficient the closer they are placed to where the hot water is routing. Large homes may need a heater on both ends of the house. A house with high water demands, such as a family of four or larger, may find that a single tankless heater cannot keep up with their needs.”

In a recent press statement, Roto-Rooter Minneapolis concludes to this new article, “If a consumer is not sure of his or her home’s capacity for a tankless water heater, our trusted, certified and licensed plumbing technicians can assess the conditions and determine if the device is a suitable option. As the article states, there are many tankless water heaters on the market; Roto-Rooter Minneapolis can point homeowners in the right direction when it comes to making this important decision.”
