Why You Should Consider the Tankless Water Heater as Your Hot Water Solutions
Conventional water heaters are outdated, HUGE and un-economical, but how else is someone supposed to get a warm shower? If you are tired of the less-than-ideal heating solutions provided by your conventional water heater, maybe its time for an upgrade. In the following article, we will take a look at some of the special advantages of the new and improved tankless water heater can provide for you and your situation.
How It Works
Probably the best thing about the tankless water heater is that it has the capacity to provide all the hot water you will directly where you will need it and only in the amounts you need. It is only when the hot water faucet is opened that cold water will be drawn through the tankless heater passed the heating element and then warmed to the desired temperature before being delivered to the place it is needed.
Just like any other water heater, tankless water heaters have a thermostat that can be set to the desired temperature to ensure the water is neither too cold not too hot. The heat for an indoor gas tankless water heater can be provided with gas elements.
The Benefits of the Tankless Water Heater
1. Compact and Tidy
No more colossal boilers taking up a good corner of your property. The tankless can be applied just about anywhere. Because of its compact dimensions, the tankless can be installed directly where it is needed, like in the bathroom or outside the kitchen sink.
2. Eliminate Standby Loss
The conventional water heater presents several opportunities to lose heat, waste energy and therefore spend cash unnecessarily. The boiler uses a tank of water which will be heated to the desired temperature and then allowed to sit until it needs to be replenished. During this standing time the tank of hot water will lose its heat energy and in time need to be reheated for a price. This is not an issue with the tankless water heater. Because only the water that is needed is heated the entire set up is very economic.
The conventional water heater is not only impractical but not very durable either. You can expect 10 to 15 years of useful service life from your conventional water heater. But, with a quality propane tankless water heater and cautious maintenance, you could get a full 20 years of top-quality service.
4. Water Saver
Your tank water heater will need to run hot water through the cold pipes in the walls of your home before it can deliver hot water to the shower or receptacle that needs it. This process wastes many liters of water each shower and can lead to massive waste over a years’ time. But, because the tankless delivers water right where it is needed, there is no wasted water or wasted heat energy in the intramural piping.
Finally, the tankless water heater can be installed with very little effort in comparison with the major operations that are involved with installing a tank.
