Tankless Water Heaters and Efficiency
The reason tankless water heaters are so efficient is due to how they’re set up and how they operate. They transfer heat to the water running through the hot water lines, thanks to a device called a heat exchanger.
This is very similar to the device that sends heat into the tank of a boiler system, with the heat being transferred into the water as it moves through the exchanger, heating it up without requiring the storage of water (while effective in tank water heaters, storing hot water can actually lead to heat loss).
In a tankless water heater, the transfer of heat is activated by the movement of water through the heat exchanger. This system is called an "on demand" system since it only heats water when there is actually a need for it. Tankless water heaters are small in nature, thanks to this setup, and can easily be attached to a wall or outside your Akron, OH home.
Is a Tankless Water Heater Installation Right for You?
You may have heard that a tankless system is more expensive to install than a tank water heater. This is true, for the most part. But this doesn’t discount the numerous benefits of a tankless system, including the fact that it will cost you less to run month to month.
- Energy Efficiency: Since a tankless water heater only produces heat when there’s a demand for it, it consumes less energy per month than a traditional tank system, which as to keep the water in the tank at a consistent temperature at all times.
- Endless Hot Water: A tankless water heater can be overwhelmed if there is too much demand on it at once, however, if properly sized to your home and specific needs a tankless system will provide you with endless hot water. This is because there’s no standing supply of hot water to be depleted.
- Lifespan: When you take away the consistent energy consumption and large presence of a large tank of water, a tankless system can last far longer than other types of water heaters.
