Tankless water heaters are quick and efficient
Tankless water heaters can typically provide 2 – 5 gallons of water per minute in a very simple way. When you turn the faucet on, cold water enters the system through the flow sensors and activates the internal computer. The subsequently activated burner sets the perfect temperature, and water circulates around the water exchanger in order to reach the set temperature before leaving the heater.
In this way, you can have hot water almost instantly, compared to conventional tank heaters, which typically require an hour to fill up. With a tankless heater, you can count on hot water whenever you need it, and the whole household can enjoy hot water regardless of whether a family member had already used up all hot water.
Tankless water heaters save money for utility bills
Besides operating quickly, tankless water heaters are extremely energy-saving and cost-efficient. Its system turns on when you turn on the faucet, and it turns off automatically when you turn the faucet off. In that way, the gas is used to heat water only for a couple of minutes, depending on how much water you want, after which it is switched off. This seemingly insignificant improvement can reduce your utility bill costs by as much as 30 per cent a year. A condensed gas-fired tankless unit can reduce your energy costs by 60 per cent every month!
Tankless water heaters are environmentally friendly
While conventional tank heaters are typically not made from eco-friendly materials, tankless water heaters have environmentally-friendly components. Since planet-friendly technology is used to manufacture a tankless heater, you can be entitled to $300 in federal tax credit if you purchase one. Due to their recyclable and replaceable components, tankless water heaters also directly reduce landfill waste.
Moreover, tankless water heaters reduce carbon emissions. It is estimated that, if every house in the US had a tankless water heater, the reduction of CO2 would be the same as if 6.7 million cars were taken off the roads!
Tankless water heaters last two times longer than tank heaters
Modern tankless water heaters are built to last – they often come with a 15 – 20 year warranty, which is a considerable guarantee of its reliability. By contrast, conventional water heaters can last between 5 and 10 years, after which you might have to replace it.
Tankless water heaters save space
As they don’t have a water tank, tankless water heaters use up a lot less space than tank water heaters. You can put them virtually anywhere in your home. Some can even be placed outside your home, but you have to check those options with the manufacture specifications and your plumber.
According to the NAECA’s energy efficiency regulations of 2015, all tank-type water heaters have to be considerably larger than before (e.g. gas water heaters under 55 gallons have to be 2 inches wider and taller), which challenges both the available space in a home and the heater installation.
Tankless water heaters give you cleaner water
Perhaps the most important advantage of a tankless water heater is that it eliminates the possibility of rust and scale build-up. In traditional heaters, unused hot water is left to cool down in the heater, so there is water in the tank almost always, which increases the risk of scale development. Since a tankless water heater draws fresh water every time, it gives cleaner and healthier water.
Even though tankless water heaters are initially more costly than tank ones, they are a safe return on your investment, when you consider reduced water heating bills, tax credits, saved time and better quality water. Plumbing Plus is your trusted tankless water heaters San Diego service provider, and we are here to advise you on the type of tankless heater that would be best for different residential or commercial purposes, the safest and most efficient way to use it and save money for years to come.
