Modern technology has influenced many industries and products. This is apparent in the changes made to water heaters when tankless water heaters appeared in the market. A tankless water heater has the ability to heat water without using a storage tank. When the hot water is turned on the cold water entering the unit is heated with either an electrical element or a gas burner. This results in the delivery of a consistent supply of hot water without requiring a tank.
How You Can Benefit
There are numerous benefits involved with a tankless hot water heater. For instance, they require 30 to 50 percent less energy than a standard unit with a tank. This results in a savings of a substantial amount of money every year for the typical family depending on their average water use.
These units only heat your water when you need it meaning they are able to operate quickly and efficiently, heating the water right away. This eliminates the need and the cost associated with having 40 or 50 gallons of water simply sitting in wait in a storage tank so a lot less energy is wasted.
Because a tankless water heater is able to generate a continuous hot water supply, you are not wasting water by waiting for the temperature to heat up for dishes, a shower, a bath, or any other needs. Their ability to be mounted right on the wall and compact design also saves space. The larger units have no difficulty servicing a large family, so if one person is taking a shower while another is running the washing machine, everyone will be assured of having enough hot water for their needs.
Tankless water heaters are also very easy to find. This is a modern convenience that will save you space, money, conserve energy, and supply your family with the hot water they need. Our team at S & D Plumbing can help you understand if this is the right option for you.
