Tankless Water Heater Installation in Portland

Ask a Portland Plumber How Tankless Water Heaters Can Save You Money

During the holiday season we feel it’s important to make memories, not plumbing disasters.  Proactively working with 3 Mountains Plumbing on plumbing winterization and maintenance means removing worry from your holiday season and spending more quality time with friends and family.

There are many precautions that can be taken in advance of winter frost and hosting guests. Toilet bowl upgrades, drain cleaning, garbage disposal installations, and faucet replacements are just a few minor adjustments that can go a long way in savings and home investment.

3 Reasons Installing a Tankless Water Heater Can Help

Topping the list is installing a tankless water heater. Here are some reasons why tankless water heaters can help simplify and even save your holidays:

1.     Never run out of hot water.  It doesn’t matter how many family members consecutively take showers.  With a tankless hot water heater you will never run short on hot water.  Hot water will maintain its continuous and steady stream keeping everyone warm this this winter.

2.     Save money on utility bills.  Aren’t you planning to spend enough money this holiday season? Take a break where you can by installing a tankless water heater.  Yes, these typically cost more to install than conventional tanks, but their high efficiency water conservation should cut down on monthly costs.

3.     Receive a $150 coupon from 3 Mountains Plumbing.  In an ongoing effort to provide quality customer service, we are presently offering a discount coupon on tankless water heater installations.

We have been installing tankless water heaters throughout the greater Portland area for over 13 years and are happy to recommend the best system for your home’s specific needs and challenges.  We are also happy to install conventional water tanks, but we do tend to favor tankless water heaters for their savings and conservation benefits.

New Water Heater Installation Portland

Portland Plumber: Discounts, Warmth, and Investment Opportunities

It’s getting cold outside, Portland, and it’s time to consider updating your household water heater.  In time, all water heaters will need to be replaced.  Even the most well maintained water heaters will eventually need an upgrade.  These household plumbing fixtures facilitate the management of hot water every day and  it’s inevitable that they will eventually break down.

If yours is an older model in an older home, or if it is showing tell-tale signs of deterioration, then this season is the perfect time to have a new water heater installed.  Right now, we are offering two specials:

  1. Receive $75 off a gas water heater installation
  2. Receive $50 off an electric water heater installation

Why Is Now the Right Time to Install a New Hot Water Heater?

In our view, the sooner a new hot water heater is installed the better.  Here’s why:

  • It’s An Investment: We all know that hot water heaters are entirely functional. They work to deliver hot water on demand.  But we don’t always think about them as household investments.  New hot water heaters, particularly tankless water heaters, increase the overall value of homes.
  • Stay Warm: Simply stated, you deserve hot water when you need it.  New water heaters will provide consistently flowing hot water on demand.  Give us a call if your water stream fluctuates in either pressure or temperature.  This is not normal and a sure sign something is wrong.
  • Save Money: While there exists an initial spend, the tradeoff is that new hot water heaters will work more efficiently.  They use less energy and tend to conserve water.  You will save money on monthly utility bills as well as repair and overall maintenance costs.

Dual Hot Water Heater Installation Portland

Ask a Portland Plumber: Why You Need a Dual Water Heater

That’s right.  Not one, but two hot water heaters!  And, really, why not?

Our journeymen plumbers have been installing hot water heaters (both tankless and conventional) in Portland area homes for over 13 years.

We understand that every household comes with a specific set of challenges and homeowner needs. We carefully assess your unique situation and make confident recommendations to meet those challenges.

Who Needs Two Water Heaters?

People who want more readily available hot water need two water heaters. Dual water heater installation is an excellent option for those with large homes and/or large families needing extra hot water at peak times. Dual water heaters means there’s far less of a chance of losing temperature while people are showering and getting ready for work and school in the morning.

It may seem excessive, but really, dual hot water heaters can provide the best of both worlds.  During off-peak times, or when the kids move out, you have the option of shutting down one of the two tanks, knowing full well it’s ready to go to work when needed.

Benefits of Dual Water Heaters

Here’s a quick list of some of the benefits afforded to homeowners who have two water heaters:

  • More readily available hot water
  • Increased flexibility.  Shut one down when superfluous
  • Decreases likelihood of running out of hot water when needed
  • Add more kitchen bathroom appliances worry-free (multiple shower heads/faucets, jetted tub, bigger bathtub or shower)

Are Dual Water Heaters Right For Me?

At the end of the day, whether or not dual water heaters are the right choice for your home really depends. Some tough decisions need to be made–all with which our fully-licensed plumbers can help.

What depends?  Well, your specific needs, for one.  Then, spatial capacity, appliance and fixture demands, and of course the ultimate choice between tankless and conventional water tanks.

Your best bet is to contact a local plumber you can trust will help you reach the best decision.  Keep in mind that to make this process easier, 3 Mountains Plumbing offers up-front fixed-rate pricing plus warranties on all parts and service.

Call 3 Mountains Plumbing today to find out if a dual water heater installation is the best choice for your home.

Water Heater Replacement Portland

Ask a Portland Plumber: When is it Time for a New Water Heater?

Hey, we get it.  Water heaters can be expensive. They’re not necessarily at the top of everyone’s shopping spree list. That’s why at 3 Mountains Plumbing of Portland, we try to make plumbing and the process of purchasing new plumbing fixtures as delightful as possible.

5 Signs it’s Time for a New Water Heater

  1. Puddles: Pools of water surrounding the water heater are one of the more obvious signs of water heater trouble.   This clearly indicates a possible leak.  Wasted water means higher utility bills.  Get this checked right away.
  2. Decreased Water Quality: Water should be clean and contain only water—not visible sediment, or rust.  Visible corrosion could be a symptom of a number of plumbing problems.
  3. Fluctuation: Water pressure and temperature should remain consistent.  Any undesired fluctuation could indicate a problem.  Remember also that water should be hot—not lukewarm—hot.
  4. Popping Sounds: Yes, water heaters make strange noises from time to time, but a popping sound, indicative of hard water, could prove detrimental to your pipes and water heater.
  5. Burn Marks: If you see anything on your water heater that resembles a burn mark, immediately contact a professional.  This may indicate improper ventilation that may lead to the release of toxic fumes in your home.

  • One-year warranty on all parts and services
  • Up-front, fixed-rate pricing (no surprises)
  • We show up on time, in uniform, ready to work

Water Heater Options Portland

Whole-Home vs. Point-of-Use Tankless Water Heaters

Did you know there are different types of tankless water heaters?  There are, and there are two: whole-home  and point-of-use.  Each has specific benefits and advantages depending upon the unique needs and challenges of your particular Portland home.

Our team at 3 Mountains Plumbing of Portland is happy to assist in helping you decide which option is best for you and your home, but in the meantime, here is a quick comparison for your convenience.

What Do They Have in Common?

Before examining the differences, let’s first investigate what all tankless water heaters share in common.

  • Energy Savings: Unlike standard tanks that constantly heat to maintain a storage tank full of hot water, tankless water heaters save energy by heating water only when needed.
  • Cost Efficiency: Typically requiring less maintenance than standard tanks, tankless water heaters also use less energy thus reducing monthly utility bills.
  • Space Efficiency: Tankless water heaters are about the size of a small travel suitcase.  They are far more aesthetically pleasing than standard tanks and may be installed inside or out.
  • Longevity: Tankless heaters typically last five to ten years longer than standard tanks so they function as a solid home investment.

Whole-Home Tankless Water Heaters

As the name suggests, whole-home tankless water heaters heats water that flows through all faucets in your residential space.  Whole-home tanks will provide an endless stream of hot water regardless of the number of showers taken in a row.  You and your family will never run out of hot water.

Because tankless water heaters service the entire home, they are typically located in basements, crawlspaces, or utility closets.  There is a certain amount of lag time that will naturally occur from when the hot water leaves the tank and arrives at your faucet.  Hot water is not necessarily instantaneous, but once it arrives, it will not cease.

Point-of-Use Tankless Water Heaters

Point-of-use systems are small and function to serve one sink, washing machine, or shower as needed.  They are located right next to or underneath their respective plumbing fixture or appliance.

The major difference between point-of-use and whole-home is that point-of-use heaters will provide instantaneous hot water at the touch of the faucet.  However, unlike with whole-home tankless water heaters, the hot water from point-of-use systems will eventually run out.

Get in touch with 3 Mountains Plumbing today to find out which tankless water heating system is the right choice for you and your Portland home.  

Water Heater Maintenance Portland

Portland Plumber: 4 Steps to Successful Maintenance

The expert technicians at 3 Mountains Plumbing have been repairing and installing water heaters in the greater Portland area for nearly 15 years.  Our licensed journeymen plumbers are trained and certified to manage any and all conventional and tankless water heater issues.  While we remain proponents of the tankless variety, we know that without proper maintenance, water heaters, regardless of their make and model, will fail.

We can’t stress enough the importance of proper water heater maintenance.  Most well-maintained water heaters should last up to 15 years.  Don’t get short changed.  There are a few simple steps homeowners can take to avoid damage.

1. Replace the Anode Rod

Anode rods typically need replacing after about two years.  They are essential in keeping the inside of your water heater rust free.  Once the anode rod corrodes, all bets are off, so make sure this is well-maintained.

2. Lower the Temperature

Lowering water heater temperature helps save you money while conserving energy.  It will also prevent overheating.

3. Flush It

Flushing the water heater will remove sediment deposits making for cleaner, more smoothly flowing water.

4. Check the T&P Valve

Water heater temperature and pressure valves work to prevent overheating and pressurization.  While a leaking T&P valve indicates a water heater issue that must be inspected, it is also a sign that the T&P valve is properly working.   Test the valve by lifting the lever and releasing to ensure that it snaps into place.

Our 3 Mountains Plumbing professionals are happy to work with you to arrange annual water heater inspection visits to make certain your water heater continues to run well for a long time.
