Why Tankless You Ask?
Tankless water heaters are a significant innovation in heating water for your home. These units don’t have holding tanks that take up a lot of space in your garage or utility room, and they also don’t waste energy as a traditional water heater does. However, they do provide your home with an almost endless supply of hot water because they only heat water when it is needed.
The process is referred to as on-demand heating, and it only happens when you open a hot water valve in your home. The water is then heated as it flows through the pipes to the faucet or shower that requires hot water. The tankless units operate using either gas or electricity, just like the traditional water heaters. But they only use a fraction of the power consumed by the older models. And if that is not enough reason to choose the tankless water heater, consider that the average life expectancy for a tankless unit is over twenty years. To put that into perspective, a traditional water heater can be expected to last a maximum of about ten years.
How Are Tankless Water Heaters So Much More Energy Efficient?
We all learned in high school science class that it takes one calorie of energy to heat one gram of water one degree, so how are tankless water heaters so much more efficient? No, they have not found a way around this trusted law of chemistry. Tankless water heaters use the same amount of energy as traditional water heaters to heat water. But they don’t waste energy trying to keep a massive tank of water hot when no one in the house is using hot water.
The secret to the efficiency is the concept of on-demand heating. Consider how much energy is used to keep water in your water heater tank hot when you are at work for the day or out of town for the week. A tankless water heater is not using any energy when you are not using the hot water in your home. This process eliminates energy waste and saves you money.
Think About This Before Going Tankless
Tankless water heaters are more expensive than traditional water heaters. But remember that you will be saving on your utility bill each month so that savings will offset the higher purchase price. Also, consider the amount of hot water that you need for your home to function normally. Unlimited hot water might sound great, but tankless water heaters do have a maximum production capability. So this means that you might only be about to run to showers simultaneously. Knowing how much hot water you use and when you use it will be vital information to share with your A Better Plumber & Air Conditioning pro who is assisting you in selecting the proper sized tankless water heater.
