Why Choose a Tankless Water Heater?

There are a lot of different components in our plumbing systems, and we rely upon a number of different appliances in order to get us through our days comfortably and conveniently. The water heater in your home is truly one of the most vital systems that you will ever encounter.

When you think of all that you use your water heater for, from showering in the morning to doing the laundry in the evening and washing your dishes after dinner, it is clear just how important this appliance truly is. That is why you must choose yours with care. 

How Does a Tankless Water Heater Work?

Tankless water heaters may combust natural gas or propane in order to heat water, or electric resistance heating may be utilized. In either case, the major difference between a tankless water heater and more traditional storage tank water heaters is the fact, of course, that tankless water heaters do not use a storage tank. Rather than heat water and then store that water in a tank, the tankless water heater heats only the water that you need, when you need it, as it passes through the system. This operation offers a few benefits.

Tankless Water Heater Benefits

A tankless water heater can benefit homeowners in that it can heat water with great efficiency. Even very efficient storage tanks will lose some heat from the water within to the air without. This means that the system will have to reheat the water waiting for use. Not so with a tankless water heater. Plus, tankless systems are very small, and can be installed in tight spaces that could not house a tank water heater. To learn more, give a member of our staff a call today.
