How Do Tankless Water Heaters Work?
In recent years, tankless water heaters have gained popularity among homeowners throughout Pearland, TX and the surrounding communities. As stated right in their name, these types of water heaters are tankless and produce hot water on demand. Standard water heaters house already-heated water in the tank, ready to be used when you need it. However, the tank can “run out” and you will have to wait for water to warm up once again. Tankless water heaters are made to provide a constant supply of hot water for you and your family so you never have to worry about running out!
Tankless water heaters do have a small unit that rapidly heats water as it passes through, delivering it to where it is needed in your home. While tankless water heaters are generally a new concept and not many homeowners are familiar with it, they do offer a variety of benefits, including:
- Energy Efficient – Tankless water heaters can actually help you save money, since they are only heating water and functioning when you need them to. Able to provide 2 to 5 gallons of hot water a minute, they use approximately 30 to 50% less energy than standard units, which can save you money all year long!
- Space Savings – Standard hot water tanks can vary in size but they generally take up a decent amount of room. Installing a tankless water heater can save you a ton of room that you never even knew you had! Most tankless water heaters are about 16 inches wide, 26 inches long, and 6 inches deep so they do not take up much room at all.
- Endless Supply of Hot Water – Since tankless water heaters work off demand, you’ll have an endless supply of hot water whenever you need it. Want to run your dishwasher and take a shower at the same time? It can be possible with a tankless water heater!
Why Hire a Professional to Install a Tankless Water Heater?
If you are interested in installing a tankless water heater in the Pearland, TX area, you may be debating whether to try installing it yourself or hire a residential or commercial plumber. Taking on these plumbing services yourself may save you money, but it is always beneficial to hire a professional to get the best results. You may find numerous DIY videos on the internet walking you through the process, but if you run into trouble, you may be unable to troubleshoot it as a tankless water heater is not a ‘plug and play’ type of installation like many believe it to be. It involves other electrical components and taking on a wiring project without knowledge can cause a fatal outcome.
Our team understands the process as well as local laws and codes required when installing a tankless water heater. Our team can get the required permits and safely install your unit to avoid any mishaps.
