Tankless Water Heaters by Rheem®


Is a tankless water heater the right option for you? Here are some things to consider:

Tankless water heaters are a space-saving, green option that enables you to enjoy on-demand hot water. For busy families, tankless water heaters ensure a nonstop supply of hot water for multiple users and can last up to 10 years longer than tank heaters.

“My Water Heater Tank Is Leaking! What Do I Do?”

Follow these 5 steps to prevent further issues until your Balcaen and Sons Plumbing, Heating, and Air Conditioning serviceman arrives.

1. Turn the unit off

If you have a gas heater, turn your thermostat dial to OFF. If your water heater is electric, you’ll have to turn the power off at the breaker.

2. Shut off the water to stop the leak

The cold water shut-off valve is typically located to the right of your water heater. Turn it to the right.

3. Drain the water heater

Locate the drain valve on your water heater and attach a garden hose to it. Place the end of the hose over the floor drain or sum pit, and then open the drain valve – be careful: the water might be hot!

4. Break the vacuum

There may not be a lot of water draining from the valve – this is typical. Open a hot water faucet in your home and leave it open until the tank is drained (up to 1 hour). Then, you can close both the drain valve and the hot water faucet.

5. Call Balcaen and Sons Plumbing, Heating, and Air Conditioning!

We’re at your service 24/7 for emergency repairs!

"Punctuality, Quality, Responsiveness & Value"

We got up this Sunday morning to a cold house. Furnace was not working. Phone Balcaen & Sons to see if they could come out. The gentleman on the 24 hour helpline took my information and told me a service man would call me. Within 5 minutes, the service man did call and I told him about our problem, and he told me that he could probably be over in about an hour or so. His name was Mike B. He came over as he said, diagnosed the problem, and then told us a switch needed to be replaced. He was able to get the switch and was back at our house within a couple of hours and got the furnace going. I could not ask for a nicer and more courteous young service man. Thanks Mike B. for the wonderful service you gave us.

"Superb Service, Worth Every Penny"

Hundred year old home, and Chris and DT came in and sorted out our busted boiler incredibly fast. They were straight shooters and briefed me on all the details during the process. These guys were superb and worth every penny. I'm happy to have guys like this helping out our old neighborhood and old homes with sincerity and expertise.

"Great Service. Loved It!"

I was taking care of a relative's place when their furnace died. Balcaen and Sons called me back after 15 mins and was able to come out within another 15 mins. Jeff (I think) was super nice, looked at everything, and shut off the water etc for me in the house and communicated with them via speaker phone on things. Well done! Great service.

"Highly Recommended"

What a great team! Experience goes a long way when you want something done right! Highly recommend these people!

"Excellent Service at Fair Prices"

I've used this company a number of times for a number of issues. That alone is rare praise. I get the feeling that they care, they listen, and they provide "fair" value. Having repeat customers and establishing a good reputation/brand seem to be part of their service. In the world of contracting, that is a rare value.
