Tankless Water Heater Retrofitting
Tank-style water heaters have been the standard for years, but today their risks have gotten to the point where they outweigh their benefits. Tank-style water heaters face several unique problems that modern tankless water heaters don’t face. If you want to make the switch to an energy-efficient tankless water heater, our experts can work with you to choose the perfect appliance for Minnesota’s frigid winter weather. With a tankless system, you can enjoy the benefits of limitless hot water on demand and avoid the potential hazards that a tank-style heater can carry.

Water Heater FAQs
Which is better, tank or tankless water heaters?
It will depend on your needs and budget. If you have a large family, a conventional water heater with a large storage tank may provide the best performance for the price; if you exceed the flow rate of a tankless water heater, you may need to add another to keep the hot water flowing. For smaller families, a tankless water heater may provide all the necessary hot water while minimizing energy costs over its service life, though it will cost more initially.
How do I know what size water heater I need?
In general, a 20- to 30-gallon water heater will suffice for one or two people, while two to four people will need a 30- to 40-gallon water heater. For families of five or more, a 50- to 60-gallon water heater may be best. If you need help choosing the right water heater for your Twin Cities home, talk to our team at HomeWorks.
My water has been smelling funny — is it my water heater or water supply?
Run your hot water and cold water for a few minutes. If the smell comes from both the cold and hot tap, the issue is likely with your water supply. If the smell comes only from the hot water faucet and smells like rotten eggs, the water heater may be the culprit. The odor is likely caused by hydrogen sulfide, which can be created when the magnesium anode rod is worn and needs to be replaced. Another source of hydrogen sulfide is sulfur bacteria, which are harmless but may encourage the growth of other microorganisms. To have your water heater serviced, contact our team at HomeWorks today.
How long will a water heater last?
Most conventional water heaters will last eight to 10 years before they need to be replaced, while tankless water heaters can last 20 to 25 years. To get the most from your water heater, have it serviced annually by our team at HomeWorks. This service is included with “The Works Plan,” our comprehensive maintenance program that covers routine maintenance for your heating, cooling, and plumbing systems.
Why is my water heater leaking?
Ensure the tank’s drain valve is closed, then check the pressure release valve, hot water, and cold water connections for leaks. If none of these is the source, the tank itself may be leaking, which means a new water heater will be required.
