Tankless Water Heaters
A tankless water heater, which is also called a demand system, is used in lieu of a tank that stores and heats water constantly. The demand system only generates heated water when it is in use, meaning the energy savings throughout the year are impressive and that there are few components that require maintenance, repair or replacement.
The demand system accesses the gas or electric heat systems of a building to provide warm water to sinks, showers or washing machines only when the user requests heated water, and the modern water heater technology is advanced enough to quickly generate that warm water when requested. The initial investment in a demand system is greater than that of a tank system, though over time the energy savings pay for the initial cost as money is saved through efficient use of heated water.
To learn more about installing a tankless water heater, contact a professional with experience in maintaining, installing and selling the required equipment. They will have answers to all your questions regarding the cost, the time line for installation and regular maintenance, how it operates, what savings to expect on the monthly utility bills and more. Be sure to ask trusted family members, friends and coworkers with a demand system about their experience and where to go when you decide to get such a system for yourself.
