Tankless Water Heater
For many years, large tank heaters have been the only real option when it comes to providing your home with hot water. While they certainly do their job, these heaters also take up a ton of space, require a lot of energy, and can only provide a limited amount of hot water.
Fortunately, technology has evolved enough in recent years to provide a home water heating solution that addresses most of the problems that large tank heaters present. That solution? Tankless water heaters.
Tankless water heaters are smaller, more energy-efficient, and can provide you with an endless amount of hot water. By providing heat on demand, these devices avoid the need for large storage tanks, which means that you can fit them in a wide array of spaces in your home.
Summers Plumbing Heating & Cooling provides all phases of service to Marion tankless water heater owners. If you’re looking to install a tankless water heater, need your current one to be repaired or maintained, or need help upgrading from a large tank heater, we’ve got you covered.
Sure, it’s a hassle to change your home’s water heating system and it certainly won’t be free, but the benefits of tankless water heaters far outweigh the drawbacks. If you’re still not convinced, read on to learn about the many ways that installing a tankless water heater in your home can make your life easier.
Traditional water heaters are designed to store about 60 gallons of water, which means that they take up a lot of space that you could be using for something else. Some people don’t even have space to properly store a large tank heater and are forced to make it work anyway!
With a tankless water heater, your options for storage are far broader, meaning you can save precious space in your home.
Tankless water heaters are designed to heat only the water that you use while you use it. Traditional water heaters are continuously running to keep water hot. This means that traditional water heaters use way more energy than tankless water heaters do. In a world that’s becoming more and more eco-conscious and energy-efficient, tankless is the way to go.
Running out of hot water can be a nightmare, especially if you have places to be and you need to take a shower. This is a particularly prevalent issue with large families that use a lot of hot water. With a tankless water heater, you never have to worry about running out of hot water again. It can continuously heat your home’s water for as long as you need it.
Tankless water heaters typically require a lot less attention than traditional water heaters. While annual or biannual maintenance is required for a traditional tank to remain in working order, tankless heaters can run for several years without maintenance.
However, if the water in your area is particularly hard, you may need to schedule regular cleanings to prevent the build-up of minerals.
More energy efficiency means lower energy bills. Because tankless water heaters heat water on demand rather than storing and continuing heating it, they can save you a significant amount of money on your utilities in comparison to traditional tank water heaters.
Installing your tankless water heater will require the help of a licensed professional. Your options for installation are broader because of their more compact size, but proper ventilation is vital, so you’ll need to work with your technician to find the safest and most convenient place for you.
A tankless water heater requires less maintenance than a traditional tank heater does because they do not store water. This can cause calcium build-up that will eventually impede the system. However, scheduling regular maintenance for your tankless water heater will help to ensure that it runs efficiently and lasts longer.
