When thinking of a water heater, most people think of high power bills, a bulky unit, and hot water that always seems to run out at the wrong time. However, today’s tankless units challenge many of these long-held perceptions. They’re efficient, produce a nearly endless supply of hot water, and take up much less space than their conventional counterparts. If you’re upgrading a home’s water heater, turn to our tankless solutions! Here, you’ll learn how tankless water heaters work, how they can help your family, and how we can help you maintain the system after installation.
Also called on-demand hot water systems, tankless water heaters provide hot water when it’s needed, rather than holding it for future use. The entire process is started by an internal heat exchanger, and it’s relatively simple. You start by turning on the tap, and the unit sends cold water to the heat exchanger while the coils heat up. Inside the exchanger, the heat is transferred into the water. The heated water flows from the tap, and the entire process only takes a few seconds. A tankless water heater gives you the hot water your family needs when they need it!
Here are just a few of the benefits you’ll get from a Home Heating & Air Conditioning tankless water heater.
Tankless water heaters are a significant design evolution. They provide an endless supply of hot water because they heat it as soon as the tap is turned on. Unlike conventional water heaters, there’s no delay while the water heats up. They’re energy-efficient because they don’t have to keep stored water warm.
A tankless water heater is significantly smaller than a tank-style unit of comparable heating capacity. In fact, many of today’s units are smaller than a briefcase! Because of their small size, tankless water heaters are a great choice for apartments, small rooms, and other spaces in which it’s impossible or impractical to install a conventional water heater.
As previously mentioned, tankless water heaters take up less space than their traditional counterparts do. They’re better for installation in small, out-of-the-way locations, but they have installation requirements that shouldn’t be ignored. Because they contain powerful burners, tankless units must be installed in well-ventilated spaces. The team at Home Heating & Air Conditioning is ready to install your new tankless unit safely, and with regular maintenance, we’ll maximize its lifespan.
Just like every other type of water heater, a tankless unit should be regularly maintained to ensure longevity and to prevent severe malfunctions. A tankless water heater may last more than 20 years, but it must be maintained yearly. If your part of Boise has hard water or the unit is set to a high temperature, it may need more frequent maintenance.
