Types of Water Heaters
Most of us are familiar with tank water heaters. Cold water coming into your home is stored in tank water heaters. Then the water is heated by electricity, natural gas, propane, heat pumps, and even solar energy. When the water in the tank cools off, the fuel kicks in and heats it up some more. When you turn on your shower, faucet, dishwasher, or washing machine, hot water is ready for you to use.
In a world where we strive to achieve a more energy efficient existence, many people are now being introduced to the tank less water heater in an effort to save energy. You may not be aware of how your conventional water heater works but if you are like most people you see that big monstrosity in your garage or closet from time to time.
If you are in a particular home for any great deal of time, you will probably deal with the replacement of one. Trust us when we say, that can be detrimental to your home when it finally goes. As they age, they may leak or rupture. If your water heater is located inside your home or in a garage where you have storage, you may deal with some water damage.
We at M.E. Plumbing know the importance of making sure our customers are aware of the most effective ways to keep their homes energy efficient. The tank less water heater is by far one of the best ways to make a difference in your home’s annual heating costs.
The Tankless Benefits
You can save up to 50% in your water heating costs. Because a tank less water heater heats on demand, there is no need to keep water hot till you need it. Traditional water heaters keep stored hot water in the tank until it is needed; the tank less heats it up only when you need it.
Have you ever been the last to get your shower, and when you are in the middle of washing your hair, and the water goes ice cold? That is because conventional water heaters only have the capacity to make so much hot water at one time. The tank less heater creates hot water on demand.
Another great benefit of the tank less heater is of course, its size. Think how great it would be to regain that closet that currently holds that huge water heater or the corner of the garage? The tank less heater creates hot water on demand.
The lifespan of the conventional water heater is about 6-12 years whereas the tankless can last more than 20 years.
