How a Tankless Water Heater Works
For many people, tankless water heaters are a bit of a mystery. After all, how can you have on-demand hot water as soon as you turn on the tap? The secret lies in the way tankless water heaters transfer heat to water.
Tankless water heaters heat the water by running it across a series of heating elements on the way to your tap. When you turn on the hot water in your home, it triggers the on-demand water heater to begin drawing water into this system, and before you know it, steaming hot water is coming out of the faucet.
Tankless Water Heaters Are Energy Efficient
Of course, traditional tank water heaters provide hot water when you turn on your tap as well. But there are quite a few benefits to choosing a tankless water heater over a tank model. For instance, tank water heaters use constant energy to keep the water in their reserve tanks hot and ready for you to use.
Tankless models, on the other hand, do not use any energy when you are not using hot water. This can translate to significant savings each month—simply because you will not have to pay to maintain hot water temperatures when you are not using it.
Tankless water heaters are also energy efficient in their own right. When they do use energy, it is typically very little, and they also do not require as much maintenance as regular tank models. They take up much less space than tank water heaters, which is a big plus for homeowners with limited storage. These water heaters also have longer life spans over tank models, lasting up to 20 years.
Tankless Water Heater Installation
Tankless water heaters do have their limits, of course. They come in different sizes, so you can find the one that matches your hot water needs. But even the largest models may not be enough to keep up with your household hot water needs, particularly if multiple people are trying to use hot water at the same time.
If that is the case in your home, you may want to consider having multiple smaller on-demand tankless water heaters installed. This solves the problem of numerous simultaneous users and makes it easier to ensure there is hot water anywhere in your home whenever you need it.
