While most homeowners are familiar with a conventional hot water heater – one that works by keeping a tank of water heated – a tankless water heater is one that heats the water on demand and does not store the water.
Because the water is heated on-demand and does not need to be heated continually, there are considerable cost savings that can be found. You only pay for hot water that you actually use!
Tankless water heaters have some other advantages as well.
Hot Water Does Not Run Out
If you have ever been the last person through a shower in a household with a conventional water heater, you may have experienced less-than-ideal temperatures. But a tankless – appropriately sized for its use – will never run out of hot water because all of its water is on-demand!
Conventional hot water heaters typically will have about a 15 year lifespan. With proper maintenance, however, tankless can last 20 or more. This is important to factor into the over all costs of your hot water heater when you are making your purchase. Van Fleet Services can help you decide what will best fit you!
Tankless water heaters are far more efficient than their conventional counterparts due to the fact that it doesn’t need to keep a tank of water heated.
Of course, tankless water heaters aren’t perfect. The two primary concerns about a tankless is that there are higher up-front costs. Additionally, tankless are limited by the amount of water they can provide per minute (GPM or Gallons Per Minute).
