Tankless Water Heaters
Home comfort isn’t just about heating and cooling, it’s much more than that. Tankless water heaters are the perfect example of this. They efficiently produce hot water for everything from long showers to your dishwasher and faucets.
Unlike traditional hot water tanks that store hot water regardless of the amount of water you consume, tankless water heaters only create hot water when you need it. By creating hot water only when you need it, tankless water heaters can prevent you from heating water you don’t need or don’t use, which can also mean savings on your energy bills.
How Tankless Water Heaters Work
When you use a tankless water heater, water is sent through the system’s heat exchanger before it gets sent to whichever outlet you are using, be it a faucet, shower or any number of other uses. The system is also intuitive enough to recognize an increase in water usage so that it can boost its workload to help keep consistent temperatures.
Taking a closer look at the types of tankless water heaters available to you, there are gas-fired, electric units and whole-house units. No matter which type of tankless water heater you go with, there are benefits that you may not know about, like:
- Potentially lower energy costs due to less energy consumption
- Continuous hot water on-demand
- Easy installation because of their small size
- Long lifespans due to their superior efficiency
If you’re looking for another way to help increase your home comfort and have thought about changing the way you heat your home’s water, a tankless water heater might be your best option. Saving money is something everyone wants to do, so why not explore all of your options?
