What are Tankless Water Heaters?

Tankless water heaters work differently from traditional water heating systems. Instead of storing consistently warm water in a large tank, the tankless models contain a flow sensor that detects when the hot-water valve is closed. In response, the unit turns off the powerful internal burner that heats the water.

When the valve is turned back on, the burner restarts, and warm water is sent wherever it is needed. They save energy by only heating the water as it is used, rather than keeping a reservoir of constantly heated water.

Should I Switch to a Tankless Water Heater?

That depends on your situation. Tankless water heaters are typically best for individuals or families that use 50 gallons or less of water a day. If you have a large family that runs multiple showers and appliances at a time, a traditional water heating unit might be your best option. Our friendly technicians will be happy to explain the facts about water flow rates and usage.

If space is a concern, tankless units beat traditional water heaters hands down. They don’t require a dedicated storage closet, so you don’t waste square footage in your home just to house them.

Appliance longevity is also a concern for most homeowners. Tankless heating units tend to outlast their traditional counterparts by many years, saving you money over the long run.
