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 if there is no big supply of it waiting until it is needed? Well, 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 the hot water on somewhere 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 pouring out of the faucet in front of you.
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 model over a tank one. For instance, tank water heaters use 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 the hot water. This can translate to a significant savings each month simply because you will not have to pay for maintaining hot water temperatures when you are not using it.
Tankless water heaters are also quite 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 do. Tankless water heaters are a good choice if you do not have a lot of room in your house. They take up much less space than tank water heaters, which is a big plus for home owners with limited storage. They also have longer lifespans than tank models.
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’s hot water needs, particularly if multiple people are trying to use hot water at once.
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 multiple simultaneous users and makes it easier to ensure there is hot water anywhere in your home whenever you need it.
