Your home’s water heater is an essential part of you and your family’s daily life, from showering to washing dishes and clothes and everything in between. There are times when households either use up all of the hot water that has been stored in their tank, or water continues to be heated and stored when it’s not needed. As an alternative to a traditional hot water tank, tankless water heaters offer increased energy efficiency and savings, as well as convenience.
Tank vs. Tankless
A hot water tank heats and reheats water and stores it in the tank each and every day, whether the water is used or not. This is where energy and money on utility bills are often wasted. A tankless water heater works differently by only heating water when you need it, providing an almost instant supply of hot water when you turn on your hot water faucet. Using the cold water running through your pipes, a tankless water heater heats the water through either an electric or gas device, which is activated when the hot water valve is opened. Because hot water is only produced when it’s needed rather than continuously stored in a tank, tankless water heaters can contribute to notable energy efficiency and savings. Tankless water heaters are also space-saving and less likely to rust.
