Tankless water heaters are contemporary hot water solutions that your family will love. Although slower to implement over time, plumbing innovations are made to save you money and water. Mahon Plumbing uses modern technology to fix age-old plumbing issues. Traditional water heaters store water in a tank and keep it hot constantly – even when not in use.
What is a Tankless Water Heater?
A tankless water heater is on-demand hot water. The system works by heating cold water as it enters the tank with powerful electrical or gas heating elements. The system activates when you ask for, making tankless water heaters the perfect on-demand hot water service you need to complete laundry, wash dishes, or enjoy a hot shower.
The Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters
Because the water is heated on-demand, you do not have to wait for the water heater to fill up to have access to hot water. Traditional water heaters store hot water, leading to extensive property damage if they are broken or out of date. Tankless water heaters are small, the size of a fuse box, making them perfect for smaller or older homes that do not have a lot of space. They fit beautifully on the wall of your utility area, making them accessible and easy to use. Tankless water heaters save you money on energy costs because they do not store hot water. Traditional water heaters continuously use a heating element to maintain hot water. Great for long-term investments, tankless water heaters have a lifespan of over 20 years!
Differences in Tankless Water Heaters
Tankless water heaters are modern heating elements for your hot water needs. They are versatile in their installation and use. When you decide to convert to tankless water heaters, you have a few options for how you can do it. You can install a whole-house tankless water heater to replace your current water storage tank. This method means your entire house uses the same heating source for your water, and depending on how much distance the water must travel through the pipes will affect its speed. Unfortunately, this method requires waiting for the water to heat up like a traditional water heater tank. Talk to our experts to find the best way to install your new tankless water heater today!
