What is a Tankless Water Heater?
Traditional tank-type water heaters work around the clock to make hot water that is housed in a dedicated tank. When hot water is needed, that water supply is utilized. When it is used up, however, it can take up to an hour for a new supply of water to be heated.
On the other hand, tankless water heaters (also known as “on-demand”, “demand-type”, “instant”, or “instantaneous” water heaters) only heat water when needed. When a faucet is turned on, heat exchangers work to heat up water instantly and for as long as is necessary. This eliminates additional water being heated unnecessarily. While there is no limit to the amount of water heated over time, there is a limit to the flow rate output at any given time. Consequently, your tankless water heater has to have a large enough capacity to fulfill your home’s water needs. Do you need to run multiple appliances at once? Often take showers while doing laundry? The plumbing experts at Goettl can help calculate your household’s water usage and habits so you can trust you’re making the right choice for your home.
Benefits of a Tankless Water Heaters vs Conventional Tank-Type Water Heaters
Tankless water heaters are a great choice for many homes because they offer a number of benefits to both the homeowner and the environment.
The average lifespan of a conventional tank-type water heater is between eight and 12 years, while tankless water heaters can last up to 20 years or longer. Because they work “on-demand” and don’t continuously need to maintain a steady hot water supply, they often last significantly longer than tank-style water heaters. This makes them especially valuable to people who travel a lot.
More Energy Efficient
Depending on how much hot water is used at your home, tankless water heaters can be up to 34% more energy efficient than traditional tank-types. A higher level of energy efficiency often means lower annual operating costs. Not only does this mean your home’s utility bills will decrease, but the environmental costs will be reduced.
Higher Upfront Cost but Lower Long-Term Cost
Generally, tankless water heaters cost about twice as much as traditional tank-style water heaters. But because they are more energy efficient, your utility bills will be lower. Also, your utility company may provide financial incentives for using energy efficient appliances. And you may even qualify for state energy tax credits. Over time, this can add up to big savings. So, while the cost is higher upfront, tankless hot water heaters can end up saving you money in the long run.
