How a Tankless Water Heater Works
When you think of the term "water heater" it’s more than likely that you’re thinking of a tank system. A tankless water heater consists of a heat exchanger attached to the hot water line in your home. Your water supply passes through a heat exchanger where heat from your fuel source (natural gas or electric) heats the water. Tankless systems don’t store water—the system turns on when necessary to immediately heat up your water and turns off right after. This is why it’s common to hear tankless water heaters referred to as "demand," "on demand," or "instantaneous water heaters" because they only deliver hot water to your home as you need it.
Is a Tankless System Right for You?
We meet a lot of homeowners here at American Comfort Heating and Cooling that are hesitant to go tankless because they think they have too high of a water need for this system. While it’s true that tankless systems are the most efficient for homes that use around 41 gallons of water a day (performing at 24%-34% higher energy efficiency) you’ll still save money even if you use up to 86 gallons of water a day because they still perform at 8%-15% higher efficiency than a tank system.
If you’re concerned with having too high of water need then you can have more than one tankless heater installed into your home. If you want to go tankless, we’ll help you find the right system for your home’s needs.
Why Go Tankless?
- Size: A big advantage of a tankless water heater is their compact size. Tankless water heaters are much smaller than conventional tank water heaters so if you’re working with limited space in your home this type of system is a better choice.
- Eliminates Standby Loss: A tankless system eliminates standby loss. Standby loss is the energy wasted when hot water cools down while sitting in a storage tank or travelling through a long pipe. With a tankless system, you won’t have to let water run to heat up.
- Lifespan: Tankless systems typically last longer than tank systems. A tank system will last you around 20 years while a tank system will last around 10 to 15.
- Lower Bills: Tankless water heaters don’t have to keep running throughout the day like a tank system, so you end up saving money. These systems cost a little more to install but the energy savings you’ll have will pay off.
