Is A Tankless Water Heater Right For You?

Tankless Water Heater Repair

Discover The Advantages Of The Latest & Greatest In Water Heater Tech!

In Talladega Nights, Ricky Bobby famously lived by the phrase "If you ain't first, your last!" Nowhere is that more true than when it comes to getting to the shower in the morning. If you're the last one to make it, chances are you'll miss out on a nice, luxurious, warm shower. Instead, you'll be met with a blast of cold water sharp enough to wake the dead. It's the absolute worst way to start off your morning, but if you have a large family, it's almost inevitable. A tanked water heater can only hold so much water at a time. When it runs out, it takes a while to fill back up and heat the water to the right temperature. But there's a relatively new player in the water heater scene, and they're changing how your mornings can go. They're called tankless water heaters, and in the right circumstances, they can provide near-limitless on-demand hot water for your home. Sound too good to be true? For once, it isn't! Is a tankless water heater right for your home? Read on to find out!

How Does A Tankless Water Heater Work It's Magic?

When you have a traditional tanked water heater, first, the tank fills with water. Then, with varying sources of power, it heats the water up to the desired temperature. When you turn on the tap, that heated water starts to flow - but once the tank is empty, that's it until it's had time to reload.

A tankless water heater works differently. When you turn on the tap, water moves into a pipe that moves through the unit. There, a gas burner or electric element swiftly heats the water as it flows past and sends it through your plumbing. Since the water is heated as it passes through, you'll have hot water as long as the tap is on. It's a complete game-changer for hot water in your home - in the right situation.

What Are The Benefits Of A Tankless Water Heater?

When you have a tankless water heater installed in your home, you'll enjoy:

  • Unlimited Hot Water: Don't really need to say anything else about this one, do we?
  • Energy Efficiency: A tankless water heater doesn't have to hold the water at a certain temperature. This means big energy savings - better for the environment and your wallet.
  • Small Footprint: Tankless water heaters are much smaller than traditional models They can even be installed on the wall or ceiling to keep them out of the way.
  • Long Lifespan: While a traditional water heater works well for about 10-15 years, a tankless model should be able to last you at least 20 - a sizeable difference.

So What's The Catch?

You're probably still waiting for the other shoe to drop about these amazing devices. Honestly, they do have a few limitations, such as:

  • Longer Wait: It can take longer for your water to heat up when you turn the tap on, as opposed to a tanked water heater that has hot water ready to go.
  • Multiple Sources: A tankless water heater has trouble if you're trying to use multiple hot water sources at the same time. So if you're trying to wash the dishes, and wash clothes, and shower, all at the same time, you might find it struggling to keep up.
  • Installation Cost: Tankless water heaters cost more up front than tankless units. However, you can often make up the difference in energy savings and the added longevity.
  • Necessary Upgrades: You might need to upgrade your gas lines or electrical service to handle a tankless water heater, which can add to the installation cost.

Why Would I Ever Want A Tanked Water Heater?

It's important to note - tankless water hears are not replacements for tanked models. Depending on your home, one or the other might work better. If you have very high demand for hot water from many taps at once, you'll want a tanked model. The initial costs for a tankless model might be overwhelming, making a tanked water heater the more attractive option. Also, if it would take a whole other set of work to just make your home ready for a tankless water heater with upgrades and modification, it might be more cost-effective to go with a traditional model.
