What are the benefits of these units over traditional heaters?
There are several reasons why tankless water units are becoming so popular. People love knowing that they’ll always have hot water when they need it, and they also appreciate the space saving design. Utility areas feel larger when you eliminate the bulky tank and replace it with a sleek box that’s mounted to the wall. They’re more eco-friendly because you only heat the water you need when you’re ready to use it. Finally, they’re long-lasting and more reliable than traditional water heaters.
How long do these units last?
In general, you can expect a traditional water heater to last about a decade. However, tankless units don’t have the large tank to corrode, so they typically last longer. In fact, you can expect to continue using your tankless system for the next 15 to 20 years. This added longevity helps to offset the initial price difference, and the reduced energy usage makes them more energy efficient overall.
Who benefits the most from these systems?
Tankless water heaters are perfectly suited for large and small households alike because they come in different sizes. Like regular water heaters that are sized to suit your needs, tankless systems also feature different sizes and power levels.
Small families love tankless systems because they aren’t wasting money heating a water tank that may not be used for several hours. Large households rave about their tankless systems because they don’t have to wait for showers.
You need to start by considering how much water is being used during the peak time. This would be when your kids are getting ready for school, parents are in the shower, someone is making breakfast, or there’s an emergency load of laundry in the machine. Once you know what your highest demand might be, the tank should be sized to fill that need. Our trained technicians can help you with the process. The temperature you like to maintain also plays a role in choosing the right heater. We’ll take the time to measure flow rates, discuss your household needs, and determine what size is best for your family.
