If you want to save energy and lower your water bill, consider investing in a tankless water heater. These appliances are more efficient than traditional water tanks when heating water for use in your home. Before contacting a Tankless Water Heater Installer, read the frequently asked questions below about these products.
Q.) How does a tankless water heater hold water since it doesn’t have a tank?
A.) Tankless water heaters do not need to hold water at all because the water is heated up as you use it. The hot water lines in your home are hooked up to the appliance and when you turn on a hot water faucet, it immediately starts heating up your water. This type of water heater heats water only as you need it instead of storing it for use.
Q.) Does it take a long time for the hot water to heat up when using a tankless heater?
A.) When you turn on a hot water faucet in your house, the heater immediately begins to heat up the water. The amount of time that it takes for the heated water to run out of the tap depends on how close the tap is to the water heater. When you turn off your hot water faucet, the appliance stops heating the water.
Q.) Will a tankless hot water heater last a long time in my home and is it cost effective?
A.) When you have a tankless water heater in your home, you can expect to get at least 20 years of use out of it. Regular tank heaters will last about ten years on average. A tankless water heater will cost more initially, but you’ll save money each month on your energy bill and you won’t have to replace your hot water heater as often.
