Tankless Water Heaters
Tankless water heaters are cost effective alternatives to conventional heaters, which require a substantial amount of energy. Easy to install, tankless water heaters do not require a storage tank to supply hot water. Tankless water heaters are known by different names such as demand water heaters, inline water heaters, instant water heaters, instantaneous water heaters, and point of use water heaters.
Tankless water heaters function differently from standard water heaters – a water flow sensor controls the water flow into the heater. Later, the burner is automatically ignited and the water flows through the heat exchanger, which in turn instantly heats the water to the required temperature. The process stops automatically when the hot water tap is turned off. The temperature can be adjusted with the turn of a dial. A specialty of tankless water heaters is that they never run out of hot water.
The prime advantage of tankless water heaters is the way they heat water only when required, thereby reducing the energy used during standby intervals. Accordingly, one can save up to 20% on the heating bill. Since a tankless water heater does not store hot water, the chance of bacteria growth is lessened. Cost effectiveness, lower maintenance, and longer equipment life are some other prime advantages of tankless water heaters. One can choose from electric tankless water heaters and gas/propane tankless water heaters. Tankless water heaters are available in a variety of sizes and affordable prices.
What are the advantages of using a tankless water heater?
Because a tankless water heater turns on when you open a hot water faucet and turns off when you close the faucet, the energy that is consumed is only for the hot water that is being used. Since there is no storage of water, and thus no constant heating and re-heating of stored water, you’re not wasting energy heating water when you don’t need it, such as when you’re sleeping or not at home. This energy savings translates to dollar savings for you and reduced impact on our environment. Furthermore, since a tankless water heater heats the water as you use it, you can have an endless supply of hot water, provided you size the unit appropriately.
