Tankless water heaters provide hot water on demand. This does away with the need for a water storage tank. When you turn on your hot water faucet, take a shower, or begin a load of laundry, the tankless water heater will detect the flow of water along the pipeline and start to heat it as it passes through. Many of our customers have asked us to install a tankless unit for them and are reaping the energy savings! Read on to learn more about the benefits of going tankless. When you’re ready, contact us for service in La Habra and surrounding areas in Southern California.
What are the Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters?
With a tankless water heater, you can control the temperature via a control board. The current water temperature is measured, and the system heats it to your preference. When the water is turned off, the system will stop heating.
Not only is this method of heating water environmentally friendly, but it is also a great way to save on energy expenses. In a home that uses around forty-one gallons of water, you can achieve an energy efficiency of 24% to 34%. A larger household, one that uses over eighty-six gallons of water, will save energy by 8% to 14%. If you install an on demand water heater at each water supply outlet in your home, you can expect to save as much 50%! There are also numerous rebates and tax credits available for upgrading to this more energy efficient unit.
Tankless water heaters are also more space efficient. They consist of a rectangular metal box that can be mounted on the wall, under a cabinet, or in a crawlspace.
Ready to Install Your New Tankless Water Heater?
A tankless water heater requires a higher initial investment than a traditional tank unit. However, a tankless water heater has an average lifespan of twenty years, compared to the ten to fifteen years of a traditional unit.
Installing a water heater should only be handled by a licensed professional. We recommend annual inspections to maintain your unit’s efficiency and prolong its lifespan.
After a year, you will start to notice the eco-friendly, energy-saving benefits of your tankless water heater—which is great to think about while you relax in a nice hot bath.
