A water heater might not be the most fun purchase you’ve ever made in your life. Water heaters work best when you forget about them, getting your mind off of stressful things while you relax in a hot shower or bath. We understand how good that can feel, which is why we need to stress how important it is that you spend the right amount of time and money investing in a new water heater installation in Morton Grove, IL.
The more you think about your water heating needs and your budget, the more likely you’ll be able to make a sound decision when choosing the right system for you and your family. That process might just be choosing a new tank water heater to replace the old one, or actually, it might involve investing in a new, high-tech tankless water heating system.
Let’s discuss if a tankless water heater might be right for your home.
The Power of a Tankless Water Heater
How can we talk about investing in a tankless water heater without explaining how they work? While tank water heaters work by heating a full tank of hot water to be used at any point, tankless water heaters don’t require a tank at all.
Tankless systems superheat the water as it enters your system, using either an electric coil or a gas burner. This hot water then becomes instantly accessible to your family, and it runs until you’re finished using it. Gone are the days of using hot water until the tank runs out. Since the water comes directly from your water source and is instantly heated, you get practically unlimited hot water as long as you’re willing to pay for it.
High Efficiency, Low Maintenance
Tankless water heating systems are incredibly efficient and low maintenance.
These systems are efficient because they use a very small amount of energy overall to heat your water. Tank water heaters must not only heat up your water, but keep it hot so that it’s available to use when you’re ready. This results in standby heat loss that you end up paying for. Tankless systems don’t suffer from this problem.
Tankless water heaters are also low maintenance and rarely have serious problems because they have such little contact between water and the mechanical components.
When to Invest in a Tankless System
Here are three good reasons to invest in a tankless water heating system today:
- Streamlined hot water. If you’re just tired of using the tank water heater until your water gets cold, then this system will be the solution to your problem. Enjoy successive showers and have fun having pristine hot water right after doing the dishes.
- Space requirements. Tankless water heaters don’t require a full water tank, so they take up much less space than tank systems. This is important for homeowners that are looking to cut down on space requirements.
- Expanded need for hot water. Did you recently have kids? Or perhaps your home was set up for a previous owner with a smaller family? Then a tankless water heater (sized correctly) will provide a huge improvement to your home’s hot water system.
