Tankless Water Heater
“Mike has always done a great job for us. He is very responsive and does great work. We have had him out to do many projects, but best of all was probably when he installed a tankless water heater for us. He recommended a reliable model, and did a great job and it has worked beautifully!”
What are the Benefits of a Tankless Water Heater?
Tankless water heaters are the most popular items in heating the water in your home. Here’s what you need to know about them.
Only the Hot Water You Need
They only heat water when you need it, so water is not standing in a 30 – 50 gallon tank needing to be heated at about 120 F degrees continuously. You never run out of hot water.
95% Efficient = Saves Money
They are energy efficient. Traditional tank water heaters run at about 65% efficiency at best. Tankless water heaters run at about 95% efficiency saving you money on your electric and gas bill. Because the water is heated as it is drawn to your faucet or tap, you never run out of hot water.
With a traditional hot water heater, if the family returns from the beach, and 4 or more of you need showers, and you need to wash the towels, the last few bathers are probably going to have to wait for the tank to fill and reheat or take a cold shower.
Tankless Water Heaters Minimize the Chance of Water Damage
Finally, the chances of having water damage with a tankless water heater are minimal. If you have valuables and heirlooms in your home that are in danger from water damage, tankless might be better for you. Expensive rugs, antique furniture, special floors, etc. all need to be protected. If your water heater is in the attic, ceiling damage and multi-floor damage is a risk. If you have a traditional water heater, make sure you check it yourself or have a regular maintenance call scheduled to keep it running at top capacity.
How are Tankless Water Heaters Maintained?
Like any water heater, tankless water heaters need to be maintained to maximize their lifespan. Ask us about your manufacturer’s annual maintenance and flushing recommendations.
