Why You Should Install a Tankless Water Heater
Most water heaters store water, constantly work to heat it, and then release the hot water when you turn your faucet on. However, tankless water heaters, also known as on-demand water heaters, only heat water as it is needed. This an energy efficient approach that can save you money.
We specialize in tankless water heater installation on Long Island. Whether you have already decided to install a new water heater or are considering your options, here’s what you need to know about tankless water heaters.
How Tankless Water Heaters Work
Tankless water heaters are energy efficient because they only use electricity as it is needed. When you turn on your faucet water enters the water heater and a sensor triggers the heating coils, turning them on. As long as your faucet is on, water continues to run through the heating coils delivering hot water to your shower, sink or appliance. When your turn your faucet off, the sensor signals the heating coils again, turning them off. Amazingly, it only takes a few seconds for the water to get hot, so you won’t notice a difference in temperature or speed when you switch from a traditional water heater to a tankless water heater.
The Benefits of a Tankless Water Heater
Traditional water heaters consume lots of energy because they are constantly storing and heating water. Tankless water heaters heat water as it is needed, and use energy only when you are using hot water. This simple change can save you lots of money on your utility bill. Tankless water heaters also tend to last longer, meaning you will save on repairs and replacement costs.
Since a tankless hot water heater doesn’t depend on stored water, but heats water as it is needed, you won’t run out of hot water when you run your shower. Tankless water heaters are also much more compact and smaller than traditional water heaters. When you make the switch to a tankless water heater, you can move it to a more convenient, out of the way place or just gain some extra storage space.
