What is a Tankless Water Heater?
A tankless water heater eschews use of a storage tank in favor of a heat exchanger, similar to those used in boiler systems. Tankless water heaters can use either a natural gas burner assembly or an electrical heating coil. When there is demand for water, the tankless water heater turns on and begins to heat water as it flows through the heat exchanger. There is a short delay between when there is demand for hot water, and when it starts to arrive at its destination. This is because the water heater always heats water from scratch. Once the demand for hot water subsides, the tankless water heater turns itself off in order to save energy.
Advantages of Tankless Water Heaters
So, why install a tankless water heater in the first place? The primary reason is to save energy. You see, traditional tank water heaters are on at all times, day and night. They keep a large quantity of water heated in their storage tanks, just in case it is needed. This is certainly convenient, but it’s also very wasteful with regard to energy. You’ll find yourself spending a fair bit of money on an annual basis keeping hot water available when you don’t need it. Tankless water heaters, on the other hand, only activate when they are needed. This makes them quite a bit more energy efficient. If you want to cut down on your home operating costs, a tankless water heater is worth your consideration.
We Offer Comprehensive Tankless Water Heater Services
You should never try to install a tankless water heater by yourself. Dealing with the home’s water and power infrastructure, which is necessary for a tankless water heater installation, requires special training and equipment in order to be done safely. If you want to make sure that your tankless water heater installation goes safely and correctly, let us handle it for you.
Even a perfect installation is not a guarantee that your tankless water heater will have a perfect lifespan, however. It’s important that you call for repairs as soon as you suspect a problem with your tankless water heater. You should also make sure to schedule preventive maintenance at least once a year, in order to give us a chance to find and fix issues before they fully develop.
