Tankless water heaters are a step up from traditional hot water tanks. The concept is based on heating water only when faucets are turned on. There is no hot water storage, rather water is heated on demand only.
There are numerous configurations available, which are best created by consulting someone familiar with typical demands. That’s why we suggest you call us for a discussion on your personal needs. Hot water on demand systems need to be fitted according to the size of your home and number of people living there to take full advantage of the savings it provides.
Hot water on demand is a little more expensive initially, but savings easily justify that when configured correctly to suit your needs.
A Little More Detail On Tankless Hot Water Systems
With the advancement in technology, you can have hot water on demand (when you need it) rather than waiting for a storage tank to heat up.
There are many benefits of a tankless water heater over its predecessor.
With a tankless water heating systems you do not have a storage tank. A conventional hot water tank preheats and stores 25 to 50 gallons of water which refills and heats up repeatedly.
On demand water heaters provide hot water only when you need it, doing away with storage tanks that cool down and consume energy needlessly.
When water is preheated and stored in a tank, there is energy and heat loss. This can be avoided with on demand water heaters.
Traditional water heaters pre-heat the fluid and maintain that temperature irrespective of your needs. With a tankless water system, your energy consumption is directly linked with your usage. There is no pre-heating involved. Hence, your utility bills are lower.
Conventional water heaters last 10 — 15 years as compared to the almost double 20+ year life span of a tankless water heater, thereby saving on replacement costs over time.
