Traditional water heaters work by keeping hot water on reserve in a tank. While this can provide a good option for homes that need extensive amounts of hot water during peak times, these heaters have their limits. If the tank runs out, it needs time to refill and reheat the water, which can be an inconvenience – especially if you’re in the middle of using the hot water, for instance, taking a shower.
In contrast, a tankless water heater doesn’t keep hot water in reserve. Instead, it runs water through heated pipes until it reaches the right temperature, providing hot water on demand. It doesn’t have the same risk of running out of hot water as a traditional model, which is one of its major flaws. There are three primary types of tankless water heaters:
Mr. Rooter Plumbers can service all types of tankless water heaters, allowing you to enjoy the benefits of on-demand hot water.
Benefits of a Tankless Water Heater
Besides regular access to hot water without the delay of a traditional water heater, tankless water heaters are also good for:
- Longer lifespan
- Smaller storage space
- Less risk of water damage
- Increased property value
- Low operation costs
While tankless water heaters are beneficial to many homes, those with large families and peak hours of hot water usage may not find them to be the right fit. Providing on-demand water for several sources at once can strain a tankless system. The installation cost of a tankless water heater is also higher than a traditional unit. Even with the long-term savings on energy and replacement costs, the upfront cost may not fit every budget.
