Tankless Water Heater 101

Tankless water heaters use less energy than traditional tank hot water heaters, primarily due to their on demand functionality. When using a tankless water heater, the water you need is heated as you need it, leaving out the need for heating an entire tank full of water only to use a small amount for daily tasks. Tankless water heaters operate with a heat exchanger and burner that function when a hot water tap is turned on, providing almost-immediate hot water flow whenever you need it. When the hot water tap is turned off, the burner and unit shut down, conserving energy.

Benefits of a Tankless Water Heater

Both electric tankless water heaters and gas tankless water heaters are extremely energy efficient, saving homeowners on monthly utility bills by upwards of 20%. Tankless water heaters also provide hot water on demand, without the risk of running out of hot water when you need it most. While the initial investment of tankless water heater units is typically higher than that of a tank system, most homeowners realize fast return on investment due to the cost savings of monthly utility bills.

When it comes to installing new units, we recommend that our customers purchase the best brands available to save money in the long run on unnecessary maintenance and common issues that other brands often bring.

Maintaining Your Tankless Water Heater

Tankless water heaters are generally low-maintenance, but they still require a little bit of TLC to keep things running efficiently! In general, you should perform general maintenance on your tankless water heater once a year, or every six months if your water heater is set to a higher than usual temperature or if you have hard water in your home. Maintaining your tankless water heater involves opening purge valves and flushing the system to remove mineral buildup and ensure optimal performance. Rick’s Plumbing can take the burden of tankless water heater maintenance off your hands. Give us a call today to learn more!
