Water heaters are a vital part of everyday living. Washing machines, dishwashers, showers, and baths all depend on a water heater. Traditional water heaters lack the technology required for maximum efficiency. Not only does the tankless water heater outperform the conventional water heater; it offers many other benefits, as well. The cost and energy savings alone is well worth stepping up to this new technology. Tankless water heaters provide maximum efficiency.
By comparison, the conventional water heater must maintain a tank full of hot water at all times. This can only be done by the heating element constantly cycling on and off throughout the day and night. This activity requires constant use of electricity and/or gas. If other appliances are used at the same time, hot water is difficult to regulate and quickly runs out. For instance, how many times while showering has the hot water run cold after a certain amount of minutes?
Traditional water heaters are quickly overtaxed and cannot keep up with the demand. The tankless water heater uses modern technology that does away with the traditional hot water tank. A precise calculation system provides hot water on a case by case basis. For instance, when a hot water tap is opened the heaters unique flow turbine receives a signal to start the heating process. A technology advanced control board accurately measures the temperature of the incoming water and the desired water temperature.
Precision adjustments are made to the electric and gas flow to ensure maximum efficiency. This process continues until the appliance or tap is turned off. The tankless water heater just goes into the standby mode until needed again. The benefits of this system are obvious. Hot water no longer runs out since there is no fixed amount of water in a tank. Hot water is heated for as long as needed. Since the temperature is accurate and uniform, far less gas and electricity is required, this results in substantial savings of money and energy. The tankless water heater stays idle until the hot water is required.
