Tankless water heaters are some of the most advanced and high tech water heaters on the market today. They are becoming increasingly popular in homes around the country as people realize the benefits of having a tankless water heater in their home. They do cost more at the point of purchase, but will save you a lot of money on utility bills once one is installed in your home. The heating of water is a huge cost each month for homeowners on their utility bills. In some homes it can comprise up to 30% of the total monthly energy costs for the average homeowner. Having a tankless water heater can greatly reduce this cost.
Tankless water heaters create hot water for for you within your home whenever it is needed. While previous models of water heaters store water in a tank all day and keep it heated with a cycled use of the heating elements, the tankless water heater can heat the water only when you need it. Tankless heaters are equipped with a sensor that can detect when someone in your home has turned the hot water faucet on and delivers the water to them immediately. The heating element then turns off when the hot water faucet has been turned off.
The fact that the heating elements are only turned on when they are needed means that the energy costs will be greatly reduced when the monthly utility bills come. Regular water heaters turn on their heating elements throughout the day to keep the water in the tank hot and ready to be used. A tankless water heater also means that people in the home will never run out of hot water at any point throughout the day like a water heater with a tank will.
Tankless water heaters use less energy and use less water. It is estimated that a tankless water heater can save a homeowner up to 50% on their energy bill because of the amount of power and water this is not used. All tankless water heaters use the basic premise of heating water on demand but they use various technologies to do so. Any customer looking into tankless water heaters should do research on the benefits and drawbacks of different brands before they make their purchase.
