Install a Tankless Water Heater
Technology continues to advance all industries, even the plumbing industry. With the growing importance of energy efficiency, new products are regularly introduced to help homeowners lower their energy usage. One of the more popular products to come out of this energy-efficient movement is the tankless water heater. Unlike traditional water heaters, these units only heat water when you turn on your faucet. The units are usually run on natural gas or propane and provide hot water to your home instantly. Excalibur Plumbing can provide you with more information on these energy-efficient options, specifically Rheem tankless water heaters, which we highly recommend. We can also provide installation of a tankless water heater at your home. Call us today to discuss your water heater options.
The Advantages of a Tankless Water Heater
If you’re weighing your options when it comes to a new water heater, you may be surprised to learn about all of the benefits a tankless heater provides. The experts at Excalibur Plumbing will help you evaluate your household needs and determine if a tankless water heater is best for your home. The primary advantages of a tankless option include:
- Energy Savings
- Continuous Hot Water
- Compact design
- Longer lifespan
The primary advantages of a tankless option include:
- Energy Savings: Unlike a traditional water heater that must keep 40 to 50 gallons of water hot in its tank at all times, a tankless water heater only heats water as it is needed. This means that you use less energy because the heater isn’t continually using fuel to keep water hot.
- Continuous Hot Water: Because tankless water heaters heat water as it is needed, you have an endless supply. With traditional water heaters, you’re limited by the size of the tank. Once you’ve used the 40 gallons of hot water inside the tank, you’re out of hot water until the tank has time to heat more. A tankless water heater delivers hot water through as many showers and washer cycles as you need.
- Compact Design: Since tankless water heaters don’t have to store a supply of hot water, they’re much smaller than the tank options that hold 40 to 50 gallons at one time. Many tankless options can be mounted on the wall, out of the way, requiring much less space than the average water heater.
- Longer Lifespan: A tankless heater option has a significantly longer lifespan than the average tank heater. In some cases, you may see a lifespan twice as long as that of a tank heater.
