Things You Should Know About Tankless Water Heaters

Bigger homes are trending now especially those with better energy-efficient appliances, hence the talk about tankless water heater has become louder recently. 

What exactly are tankless water heaters?

Tankless waters don’t store hot water in a central tank instead they heat the water when the faucet is opened, hence they are referred to as on-demand hot water heaters. Most homeowners will prefer the installation of tankless water heaters where there is the highest demand for hot water, but the appliance can be installed in any mechanical room. Please contact Just Water Heaters for the installation of energy-efficient tankless water heaters in your home. 

Higher costs of tankless water heaters are offset by lower operational costs

Tankless water heaters may cost less than conventional electric water heaters, but they only use electricity when the faucet is opened, the heater automatically shuts off when the faucet is turned off. In conventional water heaters, water in pipes will cool off when not used and the heater will constantly reheat the water and you may not even get hot water in certain parts of your home. While tankless water heaters use less electricity and save you money in the long run, the continuous heating of water by conventional electric water heater will cost you more in energy. 

Tankless water heater reduces the risks of flooding

Tankless water heater makes use of half the pipes you will need for conventional water heaters and the fact that they don’t use tanks to hold gallons of water means the risk of flooding is greatly reduced if there is an accident or leak. 

Tankless water heaters require routine maintenance service

Most of the water sources in household contain hard water (water with mineral elements like calcium and magnesium), hence you will need to constantly use water heater softener. The buildup of sediments and aging components are less a problem in tankless water heaters.

Do you need a tankless water heater?

If you have a modest household demand for hot water, and you can commit to a regular maintenance schedule, then a tankless water heater may be the right way to go. If the demand for hot water is very high in your household, you may want to add a tankless water to the existing water heater appliance in your home. In addition to adding a tankless water heater, you will have to install the appliance strategically in your home. Please contact a certified plumber at Just Water Heaters for efficient installation of the appliance.
