Tankless water heaters, also known as on demand water heaters, are a great way to ditch the tank and enjoy the same, great-quality hot water when you want it. Instead of keeping water hot and ready to go, tankless water heaters heat up the water the second that you turn the faucet on. Getting rid of the tank is a great idea for some homeowners. Could a tankless water heater be right for you?
Are you tired of waiting for the water in the shower to heat up every morning? Tankless water heaters are the right choice for you! Tankless water heaters typically use 20-35% less energy than traditional water heaters, since they do not need to constantly work to keep a set amount of water heated up. Tankless water heaters are also an amazing 97% energy efficient, contrasted with 60% energy efficient traditional water heaters with tanks. Many customers also experience lower water bills, since they don’t run the water as long waiting for it to heat up before using what they need.
One of the primary downsides of tankless water heaters is that the flow rate is not always as rapid as water coming from a water heater with a tank. This can be especially apparent if you use water in multiple places at the same time, like running the dishwasher and taking a shower at the same time. The best way to fix this is by installing more than one tankless water heater in the home if you’ve got a lot of space to work with. Many homes that have tankless water heaters will use one for the dishwasher and washing machine, and another near the shower or bathtub, so that everyone can enjoy hot water at the same time.
