Repiping Professionals, we understand how practical and effective
tankless water heaters are when it comes to providing hot water throughout your home. As opposed
to storage heaters, where water which needed to be heated and re-heated
constantly was contained, tankless water heaters produce hot water only
when it is needed. Most units only take about three seconds to ignite
and an extra three seconds for the temperature to instantly rise. Here
are the following advantages of going tankless:
Since a tankless water heater only operates when hot water is needed, you
could be possibly be saving anywhere from 11% to 69% off your hot water
heating bill. Your average home heats about 40 to 50 gallons of water
for 24 hours a day; however, the cumulative total necessary for a day’s
worth of hot water takes only an hour per day. The nonexistence of storage
and water necessary to heat reduces your energy consumption drastically.
Unlimited amount of hot water
Due to the nonexistence of storage, one cannot run out of hot water as
long as the maximum flow rates are not surpassed. This could be as much
as five to seven gallons of hot water per minute, depending on the size
of the unit.
They only operate when warm water is required. Compared to storage type
units that have to be constantly on, making it possible for a malfunction
to occur or, at worst, damage your home.
Tankless water heaters can stay functional for as long as 20 years.
Their compact size requires less space than conventional tanks. Their versatility
means tankless water heaters can be installed anywhere in the house.
