What Is A Tankless Water Heater?
Most traditional water heaters hold a large amount of water at a constant heated temperature kept in a holding tank. This uses a large amount of energy even during times when it is not in use. Meanwhile, a tankless water heater begins working the moment you need hot water, heating immediately as it goes through the heating system, providing hot water continuously and on demand.
Because it only uses energy when being actively used, it is an cost-effective and environmentally friendly choice for your home.
Benefits Of A Tankless Hot Water Heater
Having a tankless heater will not only save you money on your energy bills, it will also save valuable space inside your home because these units do not need large holding tanks like traditional hot water heaters do. This can make space for extra storage in your garage or attic.
Tankless water heater are becoming very popular because it is nearly impossible to run out of hot water. A traditional water heater’s tank will run out of hot water after just a few consecutive showers. Then, you need to wait until the tank’s contents are heated again before you can access hot water. With a tankless system, the supply is constant and plentiful.
Tankless hot water systems have established themselves to be more durable than traditional systems. Reports show that they can last up to 10 years longer. For that reason alone, they can be the smartest investment from a long-term perspective, even with their initial higher cost.
Like traditional tank water heaters, tankless (on demand) water heaters need to be descaled of minerals usually once a year to keep them working dependably.
A tankless water heater can help save you money, space and deliver endless hot water to Charleston and Myrtle Beach area homeowners. If you want to learn more about these efficient systems, call us at 843-552-9024 and speak with one of our tankless hot water specialists.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do Tankless Water Heaters Require Maintenance?
Yes, however, they are very low maintenance. They need an annual or a bi-annual flush to remove sediment related to lime scale build-up.
With a regular water heater, it is recommended that you drain it and flush sediment buildup from the tank at least once a year. Sediment in your tank can affect hot water quality and also reduce efficiency because the layer of buildup insulates the burner from the water.
How Many Years Does A Hot Water Heater Last Vs. A Tankless Style?
Generally, a traditional tank style water heater will last, 10-15 years, on average. Tankless water heaters will last 20-25 years. This is largely due to the fact that they have easily replaceable parts that extend their life by many more years.
How Much Money Can I Save With An On Demand Water Heater?
Depending on what size storage tank you have now, which model of tankless water heater you purchase, and whether it runs on gas or electricity, you could save from 5% to 69% off your hot water heating bill. How? Most homes use hot water for a total of around one hour per day, but they normally keep at least 40 or 50 gallons of water hot 24 hours a day – every day. Owning a system that removes the storage and heats water only as you use it can significantly reduce your energy consumption.
