Utility and heating costs can be high, and they don't seem to be coming down any time soon. Many contractors are looking into tankless water heaters to combat these rising costs and provide homeowners with a better alternative to traditional heaters.
If you want your home to rise above the skyrocketing prices, consider investing in a tankless water heater. Brothers Heating, Cooling, and Plumbing will give you all you need to know about the benefits of switching to a tankless water heater.
Tankless heaters are a relatively recent method of providing domestic hot water to your home. Sometimes this method is referred to as “continuous” or “on-demand” heating.
These units use an electrical burner such as a propane heater or gas burner. When faucets or showers turn on, cold water begins to flow through the heat exchanger inside of the unit. This electrical element or propane burner shortens what is known as the “lag” time for hot water displacement.
These conventional water heaters can provide up to 3 to 5 gallons every minute. So, instead of waiting for your storage-type unit to fill up and reheat, grab these units that provide near-instant hot water.
Tankless heater installation is designed to deliver hot water at a moment's notice. There are several benefits to installing a tankless water system.
It can lower total water usage by about 20%. In addition, it can save up to 60% of heating energy.
Can supply a near limitless amount of instantaneous hot water.
Tankless heaters have a longer shelf life than other forms of heating.
Traditional tanks are much bulkier units carrying over 60 gallons, but tankless units save room.
You may be able to pick up some state and federal tax credits for using these units in your home.
The savings available to you will depend on local utility rates, household use, and other defining factors. Speak with one of our experts for a full assessment of what you may save with a tankless water heater installation.
Contractors look into several factors before considering the installation of a tankless unit.
Residential storage-type conventional heaters use insulated tanks that hold about 40 gallons in capacity. Compare this to tankless units that are heated at all times for available delivery. Professional plumbers need to research various factors before installing.
For peak performance, these units generally need servicing around every 6 months. However, areas with hard water need annual cleaning to prevent mineral buildup next to the heating element. This is a simple process, and vinegar can be applied to break down the sedimentary buildup.
