Find Out Where Your Tankless Water Heater Should Go

Tankless water heaters save energy and offer the convenience of a continuous supply of hot water. You can get greater cost savings and satisfaction from your tankless water heater if you choose its location carefully. Consider the following as you and your plumbing contractor plan your installation. 

Sizing a Tankless Water Heater for Your Traverse City Home

Tankless water heaters have a well-deserved positive reputation, providing homes with a quick and seemingly inexhaustible supply of hot water on demand. But as great as these systems are, they’re not magic, and knowing how best to install and use these systems can be the difference between a positive experience and a lukewarm one. Sizing a tankless water heater before installation is an important step in getting the most of of these units.

Opting for Tankless Water Heating Lowers Energy Costs

When choosing a water heater, it’s important to factor in the long-term savings an efficient system can provide. Tankless water heating is a convenient choice that can offer substantial energy savings in some situations. Other long-term savings may be realized since these units are usually easier to fix and have longer lifespans.

What You Should Know Before You Purchase A Tankless Water Heater

Replacing your existing water heating system with a tankless water heater is a fuel-efficient and cost effective choice. Tankless water heaters, also called demand or instantaneous water heaters, heat water as needed. No hot water gets stored in an internal tank, so there is no standby heat loss from hot water that hasn’t been used yet. This saves money by eliminating unavoidable energy loss.

Selecting And Sizing Your New Tankless Or Conventional Water Heater

If you’re in the market for a new water heater, the first step in your search is choosing between a newer tankless model or a conventional water heater. Whereas conventional models store hot water in a tank at all times, tankless models heat water only when it is needed. Because they heat water on demand, tankless heaters do not waste heat and energy when they’re not in use. Tankless heaters are more expensive than conventional heaters, but depending on your needs, a tankless heater may make up for its initial cost through energy savings.
