A tankless water heater provides several benefits when compared to a traditional, tank-style model. You won’t have to worry about running out of hot water, and since it only works on demand, it won’t waste energy heating water all day like a tank unit will.
Gas tankless water heaters require complex combustion air supply and venting. Existing venting is rarely adequate, so you need a professional who has a great deal of experience in installing tankless systems. At Reliable Electrical Services, our technicians are extremely familiar with tankless water heaters so you can have confidence knowing that your installation will be done correctly the first time.
Why You Should Consider Going Tankless in South Florida
For the last few decades, tankless water heaters have been very popular in Europe and Asia. Recently, they have started gaining a foothold in America as well. One of the main reasons is that tankless systems aren’t saddled with the reliability and inefficiency issues that plague traditional tank-type water heaters.
A traditional system typically resides in a closet and provides a certain amount of hot water for you to take a shower, wash clothes and do dishes. However, when you run out, it can take up to an hour for a tank-type model to generate more. A tankless system, on the other hand, provides an endless stream of hot water so that you’ll always have it when it is needed. Tank systems continually heat water whether you need it or not. This wastes energy and makes your monthly bill higher than it needs to be.
Tankless systems can also be installed nearly anywhere in your house that you want. This frees up a great deal of space that you can use for storage or in any other way you like. Whereas a traditional system will typically last about eight to 10 years, tankless systems can last for 30 years or more.
These models work by heating water through either electricity or a gas burner as it flows through pipes. There are many advantages to purchasing a gas system rather than an electric one:
- Gas models typically result in much lower utility bills.
- If the power goes out, you will still be able to take a hot shower.
- Gas systems, for the most part, can meet higher hot water demands better than electric systems.
