Tankless Water Heaters – Hot Water On Demand
META: Tankless water heaters are an alternative to conventional units that can be an economical fit for some homes and commercial buildings.
As the term states, this type of major appliance does away with the need to have a storage tank containing heated water. Instead, a tankless system simply heats up the water as it flows through your plumbing system. Available in a variety of small sizes that may be positioned at multiple points of use in your residence or commercial building, tankless water heaters are an efficient, reliable appliance that continues to grow in popularity across the nation.
Tankless Water Heaters – How They Work
Tankless systems heat the water directly with no need for a storage tank. Any time the hot water turns on, cold water moves through pipes straight in to the unit, where it’s heated up by either electricity or a gas burner. The result is a reliable supply of heated water that doesn’t require any wait time for a storage tank to fill up. Generally, water heaters supply heated at a rate of two to five gallons per minute. Gas burner tankless heaters typically deliver greater flow than electric tankless systems. Occasionally even large gas fired models are unable to provide enough hot water for several, instantaneous uses in a large home or commercial building. As an example, turning on a dishwasher while a shower is also running can exceed the limits of a tankless water heater.
One efficient solution would be to have our plumbers install two tanks that can accommodate simultaneous needs for heated water. It’s also possible to install heaters for appliances like dishwashers or washing machines!
