Hot Water on Demand in Utica, NY

For residential customers, there are two main types of hot water heaters: with tank or without. The tankless water heater style is also called ‘on demand’ because the water isn’t heated until you start to use it. Many new homes and apartments are switching to this type, as hot water on demand has many advantages.

In the Utica area, Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Oneida is your hot-water-on-demand specialist. Our plumbing experts can take care of any new installations, regular maintenance or emergency intervention.

Let’s explain a bit more about on-demand hot water heaters so you can either understand your current installation better or have the necessary information to choose one as a replacement for your current water heater.

On-Demand Advantages

Hot-water-on-demand systems use either electricity or gas to heat the water. There are several major advantages to this type of residential hot water heater:

  • Space: Since there is no tank to store the water, an on-demand water heater takes up a lot less space. They are mounted directly to the wall, and when you install one to replace an existing heater with a tank, you free up lots of floor and storage space.
  • Hot water costs: Modern on-demand hot water heaters can help lower your monthly bill, since you use all of the hot water you heat. With a storage tank, you’re constantly heating the water, which can cool down when you’re not using it.
  • Amount of water: Hot water on demand is unlimited, which is a major advantage residential customers find with the tankless water heater. There is no more running out of hot water in the morning after other family members have showered. You can also easily adjust the temperature setting, depending on your preference.

Other Points to Consider

There are some great advantages to on-demand hot water heaters, but you do have to consider the initial cost. These systems typically have a higher purchase cost because of the high-performance heaters necessary to instantly heat your water.

Look at your current yearly operating costs and compare them to the cost of installing and using an efficient tankless water heater. This can help you decide if the tankless water heater will be best for you.

Modern on-demand hot water heaters work very fast, so there’s little delay from the time you turn the hot water tap until the time the hot water starts flowing. Older systems may not be quite as fast, though, so it’s important to ensure they’re properly installed and serviced.
