The concept of having a tankless water heater may be confusing at first. But once you start to learn about how it works, you will understand why so many people are contacting Pro Duct Solutions to have a new tankless water heater installed in their home.
A tankless water heater is exactly what it sounds like, a water heating system that provides heated water throughout your home. It does this by heating the water on an as-needed basis instead of heating water and storing it in a tank. There are quite a few benefits to this type of tankless system.
A tankless water heater:
Saves space. You no longer have to find a closet or corner of your basement to house a massive and unsightly water tank. The tankless system is generally wall-mounted which means that it’s placed up and out of the way. A tankless system has no need for water storage which means it’s a huge space saver.
Is more environmentally friendly. Instead of needing to always maintain a supply of hot water, your new tankless water heater only heats water as it’s needed. No more wasted energy on keeping gallons of water heated. The tankless system is an excellent idea for cottages and vacation homes for this exact reason; you don’t have to worry about the system using energy while you’re not there.
Saves you money. Since a tankless water heater uses less energy than a traditional system, you’re saving money on your energy bills. You may also potentially be saving money on your water bills as there is no longer a requirement to keep gallons of water on hand. With a tankless water heater, you only pay for what you use. In addition to the savings on your monthly bills, a tankless water heater is less expensive when it comes to maintenance as many of the pieces are easily replaceable. A hot water tank, on the other hand, has few pieces and you’re more likely to have to replace the whole thing in the event that something goes wrong.
Produces an unending supply of hot water. If you have ever had to endure a cold shower due to an empty hot water tank, then you can see the appeal of an endless supply of hot water. With a tankless water heater you will no longer have to worry about scheduling showers, or showering at night. You will always have the exact amount of hot water that you and everyone else in your household will need.
Of course it’s always wise to consider the cons of any large purchase. A tankless water heater will cost more upon initial installation and new vents or gas lines may need to be installed to accommodate the new appliance. This large upfront cost, however, is easily and quickly countered by the long term savings of having a newer, more efficient system. One other thing that is worth considering is that because a tankless system heats as you go, it may have a harder time with water output. For example, if someone is showering while the dishwasher is running, both appliances would see a reduction in temperature. This is easily countered by the installation of a secondary tankless unit.
If you have any questions about tankless water heaters, or are unsure as to whether this is the right system for you, we encourage you to give us a call. We at Pro Duct Solutions would love to assist you with anything related to your HVAC needs.
