Have you ever argued with your family over who gets to shower first before the hot water runs out? Or waited a while before you did laundry to ensure you had enough hot water for the load? One of the biggest pains of a storage tank water heater is running out of hot water for a couple of hours, but a tankless water heater can change that.
What exactly does a tankless water heater do?
It heats water directly without the use of a storage tank. Basically, when you turn on a hot water tap anywhere in your home, cold water travels through a pipe into the tankless water heater unit and is heated by a gas burner or element. This allows for a consistent supply of hot water anywhere in your home whenever you need it. You can compare this to a storage tank water heater, where you must wait for hot water to replenish within the tank before you have access to hot water again.
You may have heard of tankless water heaters being referred to as “instantaneous” water heaters or “on-demand” water heaters. This is because no hot water is stored in the unit, meaning it’s only working when you actually need it.
Although the initial cost of a tankless water heater is greater than a storage tank heater, it has nearly double the lifespan (over 20 years!) and performs at a much lower operational cost. A tankless water heater is also significantly more energy efficient than its storage tank counterpart; your home’s efficiency can improve up to 24%-34% depending on how much hot water you use.
When you go tankless, you’ll also enjoy:
|SAFETY||Forget scalding hot temperatures, you decide how hot the water gets when you set your unit’s digital controller.|
|CONVENIENCE||Run whatever you want at home—your hot water won’t run out! Laundry, shower, dishwasher… the list goes on.|
|FLEXABILITY||Your tankless water heater can be installed in virtually any room within your home. Storage tank water heaters usually require a significant amount of floor space for installation.|
