How Does a Tankless Water Heater Work?
Mr. Rooter Plumbing of the Twin Cities recommends tankless water heaters for a wide array of homes in the area, providing reliable hot water whenever you need it. Traditional water heaters typically use a storage tank holding 50 gallons of water or more and constantly heat it. These tanks usually contain enough hot water to meet your entire house’s water needs, but cold shower shock is an ongoing and unpleasant risk. You can easily exhaust a traditional water heater’s reserve, and refilling and heating a fresh tank can take a long time. Tankless water heaters heat water as it passes through and eliminate bulky water storage containers. This heater draws cold water into the heater whenever you need hot water. The water circulates around a heat exchanger and then gets returned to your home’s piping.
What Types of Tankless Water Heaters Are Available?
A residential tankless water heater connects to a fuel source to run it, requiring plumbing professionals like Mr. Rooter Plumbing of the Twin Cities to install it carefully. However, you can install a tankless water heater to run on various energy resources. Some households are all-electric while others have some systems running on gas and others running on electricity. Many people use propane for various utility needs besides their outdoor grills and fire pits. Whichever major fuel sources run into your home, there’s typically a tankless water heater to fit them. We’ve listed the three primary tankless water heater types for your benefit:
- Electric-powered tankless water heaters
- Gas-powered tankless water heaters
- Propane-powered tankless water heaters
Benefits of Residential Tankless Water Heaters
Mr. Rooter Plumbing of the Twin Cities recommends tankless water heaters in gas, electric, and propane configurations because of their convenience, energy savings, and reliability. Tankless water heaters offer a continuous hot water supply for your showers, baths, laundry, and cooking without waiting for a tank to refill or heat up during heavy water use. Your household may have spouses, children, houseguests, and relatives with individual schedules, so reliable hot water is essential to meet everyone’s needs. While a tankless water heater might not be the best choice for everyone, it does offer general benefits nobody can deny. A tankless water heater installation cost is a considerable investment for customers, but for many people, the benefits of their new water heater outweigh the installation costs. Some benefits include the following:
- Smaller space required
- Energy-efficient operation
- Low operation costs
- Less risk of water damage
- Increased property value
- Longer lifespan than storage water heaters
- Beneficial to the environment
