Tankless water heaters offer added convenience, reduced energy usage and money savings. A growing number of homeowners are turning to first quality Noritz tankless water heaters. The tankless doesn’t rely on a tank to heat and store hot water. The tankless heats water as the need calls for it. With Benjamin Franklin’s Noritz tankless water heaters in Fort Worth you’ll never run out of hot water again.
A tankless water heater is a highly efficient unit that circulates water through a heater as it flows toward the faucet. Furthermore, it uses burners fueled by either natural gas or propane gas to heat the water. Due to the inherent hazards of gas, you should only use a gas certified, licensed plumber for the installation of tankless water heaters in Fort Worth.
