Your water heater plays a key role in your home, providing the hot water needed for things like bathing and showering, washing dishes, and doing laundry. Traditional hot water heaters include a large tank used as a reservoir for storing hot water, which is then distributed throughout your home as needed. However, these reservoir heaters can be inefficient, leading many homeowners to look into the benefits of tankless water heaters.
If you’re looking for an alternative to traditional reservoir heaters, consider installing a tankless water heater in your home. These units heat water on demand, using less energy overall and providing hot water much more quickly than traditional units. At 212 Plumbing, we provide expert installation, repairs, and maintenance services for tankless water heaters. We can help you choose a tankless water heater perfect for your home, and our extensive experience means we can handle even the most complicated of installations.
While traditional water heaters operate by heating up a supply of hot water and storing it in a reservoir, tankless water heaters have no reservoir—thus being “tankless.” Instead, tankless water heaters provide hot water on demand, heating water only when someone turns on the hot water somewhere in your home.
When hot water is needed, tankless water heaters work by drawing cold water into the unit and heating it rapidly using a heat source. Tankless water heaters vary in terms of their heat sources, with some using an electrical element and others using a gas burner. Once the water is heated, it’s sent off to wherever it’s needed, whether it’s a faucet, shower, washing machine, or anywhere else.
There are many reasons to consider replacing your traditional water heater with a tankless, “demand-type” unit. Because of the different way in which these devices produce hot water, they provide several advantages compared to their reservoir counterparts, including:
Improved efficiency and lower monthly costs
While it may seem more energy-intensive to heat water every time you turn on the shower or tap, this method is actually much more efficient compared to heating an entire reservoir. This means tankless water heaters will likely save you money each month on utilities.
Hot water on demand
Tankless water heaters are also known as “demand-type” water heaters, as they provide hot water pretty much instantly. Whereas those with traditional water heaters need to wait for the unit to heat an entire reservoir, tankless water heaters provide hot water as soon as you need it, saving time and water in the process.
Longer expected lifespan
Most water heaters last at least a decade, or 15-20 years with proper care and maintenance. Tankless water heaters, on the other hand, last much longer. New tankless water heaters are expected to last at least 20 years from the date of installation, and with effective maintenance they can last much longer.
