Imagine the comfort of knowing that when you turn on a hot water faucet or shower in your home, you will have an unlimited supply of hot water. Never again will you run out of hot water in the middle of a shower or when washing a pile of dishes after a holiday meal. It sounds too good to be true. But if you install a tankless water heater, this could be your new reality.
How A Tankless Water Heater Works
A tankless water heater, also sometimes called an on-demand water heater, only heats water when you open a hot water faucet. The water is heated as it flows through the pipes in your home toward the faucet or shower that you turned on. Using this heating method, a tankless water heater system can continue to heat water for as long as you are demanding it. This process is a massive benefit over the traditional tank-style water heaters that have a limited capacity.
Tankless Water Heaters Also Save Energy
An unlimited supply of hot water and energy savings sounds unbelievable. However, that is precisely what you will get. Tankless units offer substantially lower operating costs because they only heat water when there is a demand for it. Traditional water heaters waste a significant amount of energy, keeping a large tank of water hot 24/7. And that means those water heaters are using energy day and night, even when no one is in your home and needs hot water.
The Actual Money Savings
You might not think that heating water requires a great deal of energy. But in most homes, heating water accounts for about 30% of each home’s energy expense. And tankless water heaters have been found to reduce that energy consumption by 25 to 50%. So you could enjoy up to a 15% savings on the cost of your average monthly energy bill.
Another Great Benefit
We have all seen the size of a traditional water heater. And we know how challenging it can be to fit these large units into a utility space. But when you opt for a tankless water heater, you will only need to accommodate an appliance that is about the size of a medium suitcase. These compact water heaters can be located under a sink, in a closet, or any small area in your home. And even though they are small, you will have endless hot water and great savings on your utility bills.
When To Think About Going Tankless?
Tankless water heaters offer many great benefits, but it is essential to remember that it is a very different system than a traditional water heater. And because of the significant differences, it is vital to work with a professional licensed plumber when selecting a new tankless water heater. While the ability to heat water almost forever is a feature of every tankless unit, there is a maximum capacity that each can heat a one time. So sizing your new tankless water heater properly is a critical step in the selection process.
