Benefits To A Tankless Water Heater Installation
There are many upgrades one can perform on their home to add convenience and value. One of those upgrades many people are opting for is a tankless water heater. If you’ve never considered replacing your tank-style water heater with a tankless design, here are a few advantages that might steer you in that direction.
Tank-style water heaters heat water continuously, so you always have hot water when you need it. The problem with this is that the system is heating water when you don’t need it, which wastes energy. Tankless water heaters heat the water as needed and use 24-34 percent less energy than traditional water heaters.
Lower Utility Bills
Because tankless water heaters are more energy-efficient, you will notice a decrease in your utility bills.
Tankless water heaters typically last five to 10 years longer than their tank-style counterparts. Plus, with routine maintenance, a tankless water heater can last up to 20 years or longer.
Endless Hot Water
The most significant advantage of a tankless water heater is that you get unlimited hot water for as long as you need it. While tank-style water heaters eventually run out if they over capacity, you won’t have this problem with a tankless water heater.
What Is A Point Of Use Water Heater & Do You Need One?
Many people confuse point of use water heaters with tankless water heaters, but they are different systems for different purposes.
Some of the heat in your hot water is lost between your water heater and the faucet, and depending on the distance the fixture is from the water heater, the loss can be significant. To remedy this problem, people can opt for a point of use water heater, which is a heating system that applies heat to the water near the sink or fixture that’s far away from the central heater.
Do you need a point of use water heater? Here are situations where it can be beneficial.
- When constructing a new home, if the design can’t minimize the loss of heat from the central heating system, then a point of use water heater makes sense.
- If you’re adding on to your home and the addition increases the load on your water heater, causing it to lose efficiency.
- Hot tubs, especially if you’re using electricity to heat the water.
To find out if a point of use water heater can benefit your household, contact the experts at Pristine Plumbing, Inc. for a consultation.
How Often Should You Service Your Tankless Water Heater
Tankless water heaters are considerably more reliable and longer-lasting than a traditional water heater. But, these systems still require maintenance to keep them running efficiently.
Many experts recommend annual flushing of your water heater, but if you live in an area with a higher mineral content in the water, you may need to flush it more often.
To ensure that your tankless water heater runs efficiently year after year, call Pristine Plumbing, Inc. for routine maintenance and avoid problems that could lead to premature tankless water heater replacement.
