Tankless Water Heaters
If you’re in the market for a tankless water heater, we will help you determine which type best suits your needs. First, you should take into account the fuel type (gas or electric), and then the capacity required.
Tankless water heaters come in two general sizes: point-of-use and whole house. The technology is the same; it’s really just an issue of “flow rate,” or gallons of water per minute (GPM). A point-of-use heater will provide water for your kitchen sink, for example, while a whole house heater can handle a couple of bathrooms plus a kitchen, assuming every fixture isn’t running at the same time.
Tankless units (also called “on demand” units) heat water only when you turn on the faucet. They usually operate on natural gas or propane. The main advantage is that they eliminate the extra cost of keeping 40 to 50 gallons of water hot in a storage tank, so you waste less energy.
- They never run out of hot water.
- They last five to 10 years longer than tank heaters.
- They’re more efficient with no standby heat loss.
- They take up less space and can even be installed on walls or outdoors with an anti-freeze kit.
- Smaller units can be installed under cabinets or in a closet, closer to the point of use.
- They only need enough power to heat the amount of water necessary at any given moment.
- You can shave as much as 20 percent from your water heating bill. . Electric models don’t produce greenhouse gases.
- Most units are operated by remote control and have up to four separate settings available.
- There’s no possibility of flooding due to a ruptured tank.
