Picture this: You have taken your tenth unwillingly cold shower this season and you are fed up. It is time to face the fact that your old water heater is out of time and you need to replace it. When you do this though, you want to make sure that you are using a system that is more energy efficient than your current one.
You’ve heard good things about tankless water heaters and you are considering getting one to replace your dying tank water heater system. Before you do this though, it is important that you make sure this will be the best system for your needs.
When the time comes to replace your water heater, whether you choose a tank or tankless system, make sure you call in a professional you can trust New Port Richey plumbing needs.
How Tankless Water Heaters Work
Unlike tank water heaters, which stay filled with water and keep it hated at a certain temperature, tankless water heaters work to heat water on demand (hence why they are also known as demand water heaters). Tankless water heaters have no tank which means they don’t store water but instead heat water as it moves through the system. This allows them to deliver a regular flow of warm water and takes away the risk that tank water heaters have of running out. This does allow this system to be overwhelmed if there is too much demand at once on it (for example, someone taking a shower while another does the dishes. However, this is easily resolved by installing more than one system or installing one that has a larger capacity for heating.
What Are the Benefits?
There are several benefits that come with tankless hot water heaters.
- Less waste: Because tankless heaters don’t need to store water, they are more energy-efficient and help users to use less water overall.
- Less Space: This system doesn’t require a large tank that can hold 50 to 60 gallons of water, allowing it to use up much less space. This makes it ideal for homes with less floor space, or just anyone that wants a few extra square feet to enjoy in their home.
- Longer Lifespan: Tankless hot water heaters are able to last between five and 10 years longer than tank systems.
Work with the Pros for Water Heater Installation
If you opt to switch out your dying tank hot water heater for a tankless system, the important part is that you schedule an appointment to have a professional plumbing technician come out to do the replacement and installation. A professional will be able to answer all your questions about your new system and will get the job done right the first time around whereas an amateur might install your new system incorrectly, costing you more money in repairs and an early replacement.
