As a homeowner, you have likely heard more and more about tankless water heaters in the last couple of years as you’ve grilled on Sundays with other couples in the neighborhood. It’s true, tankless water heaters are becoming a topic of conversation in the home-appliance world — and for good reason.
At Only Water Heaters, your local Columbus water heater installation company, we repair old water heaters, replace non-functioning water heaters, and install brand new water heaters — and as of late, tankless water heater installation is one of our more sought-after services.
In today’s blog, we are going to talk a little bit about tankless water heaters and why homeowners everywhere are making the switch. So stay tuned to learn more.
What Is A Tankless Water Heater?
When people think of water heaters, they typically think of large tanks that sit behind the closed door of “that one closet that nobody opens” or in a dark corner of the basement. While that is true, all older water heaters and a good portion of newer water heaters do in fact have tanks, tankless water heaters do not. In fact, it looks nothing like a traditional water heater.
Rather than storing warm water in a tank, tankless water heaters approach heating water as an on-demand service. When you turn on the faucet, high-powered burners heat the water as it runs through a heat exchanger on the way to your sink. In fact, since the water heater only heats the water when it is being requested, tankless water heaters are also known to be incredibly efficient.
Tankless Water Heaters & Energy Efficiency
If the last barbeque that you attended was dominated by your neighbor boasting about the efficiency of his brand-new tankless water heater, we apologize — but we also aren’t surprised. In fact, homeowners who have tankless water heaters installed use only an average of 41 gallons of water a day, experience between 20-34% better efficiency than traditional tanks, and enjoy up to 20+ years of water heater performance before they have to get a new water heater.
Some Of The Greatest Benefits Are Things That You Avoid
When you have a new tankless water heater installed, you get a lot more than just an efficient water heating tool — you also get a reliable home appliance that doesn’t have to be replaced every 10-15 years, as a traditional tank water heater might. Additionally, you also get to avoid the potential future flooded basement that is often caused by faulty or old traditional tank water heaters. Lastly, if you have a tankless water heater installed at every hot water outlet in your home, you can see energy-saving anywhere from 27-50%.
