When it’s time for a new water heater, energy efficiency is typically near the top of many people’s wants in Cleveland. A tankless water heater is a great choice for saving energy. In fact, a tankless water heater is 8–34 percent more energy efficient than a storage water heater, according to energy.gov.
Unlike traditional tank heaters that heat gallons of water and store it for a later time, tankless water heaters use gas burners or electric coils to heat water on an as-needed basis, which may save you a lot on energy expenses. Since the heated water isn’t stored for use for later use, you don’t have to pay for standby energy losses like you may have to with tank heaters. You’ll also benefit from having a continual supply of hot water. They are compact in size, energy-efficient in design and low-cost to use.
When you turn on a hot water tap, cold water goes through the unit where either a gas burner or an electric element heats it. Then it travels to the tap, where you then have hot water. One thing about tankless water heaters—especially for larger households—is that the flow rate of hot water may not be great enough to take on numerous uses at once. One of our professionals will help you determine what your flow rate is and give you recommendations based on their knowledge.
Some people choose to install a separate tankless water heater that’s picked for a specific appliance, like the dishwasher or the clothes washer—or as a booster for a solar water heating system. However, many houses in the Cleveland area do just fine with a single tankless water heater. Let’s look at some of the perks of adding one:
- Most tankless water heaters have a lifespan of 20 years—that’s about twice as long as the lifecycle of a regular tank heater.
- Most tankless units come with a federal tax rebate.
- Tankless water heaters rarely run out of hot water.
- You get higher energy efficiency with a tankless water heater because they are more efficient minus standby heat loss and only use the power they need to heat the amount of water needed at any point.
- Tankless models take up much less space than traditional tank water heaters. They can even be hung on the walls and some can be put in small cupboards or closets. Smaller units can be added under cabinets or in a closet, closer to the point of use.
