Tankless Water Heaters San Francisco
Are you in the market for a new hot water heater? Are you considering going tankless?
A tankless water heater gives you hot water without the use of a storage tank. When you turn on your hot water, cold water travels through a pipe into your unit. The water then gets heated by a gas burner or electric element.
The tankless water heater is becoming popular in homes across the country.
Here’s what you need to know about making the switch.
- They Are Efficient
Tankless water heaters are 8-14% more efficient, especially if your family uses a lot of hot water. And you can save even more on energy by installing hot water heaters at every outlet in your home.
Tankless water heaters only consume energy as it’s needed. They are often called “on-demand” systems.
While a tankless unit may cost you a bit more at the outset, it can save you a great deal in energy bills as time goes on.
2. They Last
A tankless water heater can last you for twenty years or more with regular service and maintenance (without regular service, it’s destined to die soon, so don’t forget your scheduled service). Compare this to the decade-long life of a traditional water heater, and you’ll see why folks are willing to pay a little extra upfront. In addition, If something does go wrong, it’s usually a serviceable part that needs to be addressed, and then it’s up and running quickly.
3. Additional Space
Maybe you have a small storage space in your mechanical room or basement, or perhaps it’s simply a space you don’t use much.
You’ll regain the space that the hot water heater once took.
You’ll likely add a bit more space to your area if you get rid of a traditional water heater. You may even have enough room to add a new storage closet! Tankless units are small and mounted on your wall.
With a tankless water heater you won’t experience those sudden bursts of cold water in the shower, it doesn’t drop in temperature. You will consistently have hot water when you need it for as long as you need it.
The Value of a Tankless Water Heater
A tankless water heater can do so much more than save you space. It can save you money on your energy bills and guarantee that you’ll have a quality hot water source for years to come.
