Tankless Water Heater Installs
The tankless water heater is a very good choice for most users. The primary reason being the fact that it takes up much less space and use far less energy than standard water heaters. They are also known as instant hot water heaters as they heat up water on demand only. The system ensures a constant supply of hot water as the water is heated by a gas burner or electricity. Gas-fired tankless heaters are reported to produce higher flow rates than the electric models.
The major advantages of using a tankless water heater are:
- The energy consumption by tankless water heaters are 30 to 50 percent less than units with tanks.
- The systems generally operate on natural gas or propane. This makes it an eco-friendly choice for users who are environmentally conscious.
- Water is heated in the system only when the faucet is turned on. Otherwise, the system is inactive and helps save energy.
- Since the water need not be kept heated in a separate storage tank, the extra cost is eliminated considerably making it an economic option.
- Ideally, a continuous supply of hot water is produced. This flow of hot water is ideal to fill up water tubs or whirlpools.
- It is a more compact choice and mounted on the wall. Compared to the standard water heater, this is an automatic choice.
Standard Water Heater Installs
Even well maintained appliances have a life expectancy. After a point of time, they start breaking down and functioning irregularly. For your standard water heaters, the water temperature can start to fluctuate, the overall temperature can become much lower than expected, or the unit can start to leak. These warnings mean that the water heater needs repairing or replacement. A damaged water heater causes a lot of problems, especially if it is leaking. Excess water around the unit can start to cause unwanted damage to the surrounding structure of your home and could lead to costly repairs.
Since hot water is vital to normal like, replacing a damaged water heater is usually the obvious choice for a home owner. While tankless can offer a ton of benefits it is not always practical for every person and their situation. A new standard “tank” style water heater is still very commonly installed. A new unit will usually have drastically better heating ability and lower energy usage than the older models.
