What is a tankless water heater?
So what’s the difference between a conventional water heater and a tankless one? A tankless water heater is much like the name sounds: it doesn't have a large tank for storing water. This makes it easier to install the unit virtually anywhere in your home. It is the size of a suitcase, so you can place it in a crawl space or even on the wall.
Rather than heating and storing warm water, a tankless unit heats the water as it is being used. This is done as the water passes through the pipes. The result is instant hot water on demand, less space taken up, and reduced energy costs since you do not have to reheat unused hot water in a tank.
Is installing one right for you?
While tankless water heaters are more economical in the long run, they are not for every home. Tankless water heaters are best for smaller households that would not normally use up most of the water in a conventional tank.
Smaller households or households that use less water can benefit greatly from the installation of one of our tankless water heaters. You can enjoy a nice warm shower in the morning, even as another household member is busy doing dishes in the kitchen. That's because the average tankless water heater can produce between two and five gallons of warm water per minute.
How much energy is saved?
The amount of money you save with a tankless water heater varies by household and the amount of hot water you use on a regular basis. However, studies have found that a tankless water heater can decrease energy costs by anywhere from 10-15 percent overall. For many homeowners, this can total anywhere from $100 to $300 throughout the year.
While tankless water heaters do cost more upfront, their cost can be made up in the savings you reap over time.
There are several benefits that come with making the switch to a tankless water heater. Want to learn more, or to see if installing one is best for your home? Contact us and one of our professionals will go over your home’s hot water needs to help you come to the best decision.
