Electric & Gas Tankless Water Heaters
Gold Star specializes in tankless water heater installation services for residential customers in Delaware and our service areas in Southeastern Pennsylvania. These water heaters provide hot water as needed, and while the heating process is not instantaneous, it is rather fast in modern systems. When you wash your hands or take a shower, the unit continues to use a gas burner or electric element to heat the water you need. When you turn the water off, the heating process ends, which is very energy efficient because you are not wasting any water, or the energy needed to heat it! Interested?

Tankless Water Heaters Are Cost-Effective
Traditional water heaters have storage tanks, and that stored water must be heated constantly in order to ensure that hot water is available when you need it. A tankless water heater requires a lot less electricity or gas because it only has to heat water as needed. While the initial cost of tankless water heater installation is higher, the equipment lasts longer and costs less to operate on a monthly basis. Another important consideration is how much hot water your household uses.
Prepare Your Home for a Tankless Water Heater Installation
If you have access to a natural gas line and opt for a gas tankless water heater, your home may be ready to go with little preparation. If you choose an electric model, the electrical system in your home may require a professional upgrade before we can proceed with the tankless water heater installation. The installation process is crucial to the efficiency and long-term health of your tankless system. The Gold Star team is meticulous in our approach and adheres to all manufacturer specifications in order to ensure that your system operates safely and efficiently for many years to come.
Tankless water heaters should receive annual maintenance in order to ensure their efficient operation and long lifespan. During this service, a Gold Star team member will inspect your system, flush it and clean its filters. A tankless water heater can last twice as long or even longer than a traditional water heater, but that requires routine maintenance particularly in areas with hard water. Those minerals will accumulate over time leading to inefficient operation, a shorter lifespan, and even costly repairs.
Are You Considering a Tankless Water Heater Installation?
There are many factors to consider before moving ahead with tankless water heater installation. You have to determine your budget, consider your household usage and assess the physical layout of the home. It is best to do this with the help of an expert plumber. You can call Gold Star at 1-302-485-1649 to schedule a complimentary in-home consultation.
Do I Need a New Water Heater?
All water heaters need to be replaced eventually. Gold Star recommends that homeowners keep an eye on their systems and watch for the telltale signs of a problem, such as rising energy costs, discolored hot water, pooling water, strange noises and so forth. If your current system is 10 years or older, then you have gotten good value, and it is the right time to begin considering a replacement. After all, the system is likely no longer as efficient as it once was, and you are at greater risk of a leak.

Non-Condensing Tankless Water Heater
A non-condensing water heater utilizes a single heater exchanger to heat the water. Steam is vented at high temperatures, which requires an exhaust system that is both heat and corrosion resistant.
Condensing Tankless Water Heater
Condensing water heaters have a secondary heat exchanger that utilizes the hot steam and water vapor. In this approach, less energy is lost, and these models are therefore more energy efficient.
Electric Tankless Water Heater
Electric water heaters warm hot water as needed using an electric element. These units are quite efficient and being powered by electricity makes them accessible to practically all homeowners.
Gas Tankless Water Heater
Gas tankless water heaters use natural gas as their fuel source and thus require a natural gas line. These units tend to be more expensive up front but have a longer lifespan and are incredibly energy efficient.
Other Water Heaters We Install
Gold Star installs, replaces, services and repairs all types of water heaters. In addition to tankless systems, that includes traditional tank water heaters. Our experts also work on heat pump water heaters, including standalone models and those integrated into the heating and cooling system. Contact us to learn more about your options and how to get the most out of your current system.
Hot water storage tanks range from about 20 to 120 gallons, and the size of the tank is dictated by household usage. Most of these systems heat water using natural gas or electricity, and while they are not as efficient as tankless systems, they are typically more affordable to install and maintain.
Heat pump water heaters do not heat the water directly but rather transfer heat energy to the water, such as from the ambient air. These heat pumps operate similarly to the heat pumps that are used to heat and cool homes, and hybrid water heaters are actually integrated into those home HVAC systems.
