Tankless Water Heaters
Hot Water Right When You Need It
If you’ve ever taken a shower and run out of hot water before you were finished, or had to wait to shower after someone in your household used up all the hot water, then a tankless water heater might be right for you. K Plumbing provides tankless water heaters as an energy efficient alternative to traditional storage tank water heaters. Tankless water heaters, also known as instantaneous, supply your home with hot water only when you need it and never run out. They work by heating water whenever a hot water faucet is turned on.
Cold water is delivered through your pipes and heated either through electricity or gas, depending on the type of tankless water heater you have. Because hot water is produced only on demand and not stored in a tank, it is always available. With traditional storage tanks, hot water supply is limited to the size of the tank, and energy is lost when on standby. Tankless, on the other hand, save significant energy as they are only used as needed.
Energy and Cost Savings
You can notice an immediate difference in your energy bill when you have a tankless water heater as opposed to a storage tank. And over time, the less money you will have to spend on annual energy costs can save you even more. Energy savings are also significant when making the switch from traditional to tankless, being on average 24-34% more energy efficient than storage tank water heaters.
Total benefits include:
- Constant supply of hot water
- Smaller in size; space-saving
- Energy efficient
- Short and long term cost savings
- Less likely to rust
