Different About A Tankless Water Heater?
First of all, there are a few different types of water heater systems. This includes conventional storage water heaters, condensing water heaters, tankless water heaters, hybrid (heat pump) water heaters, and solar water heaters. Tankless water heaters have a longer lifespan than the conventional storage systems. Most systems can last around 8-12 years, whereas a tankless water heater can have a 20 year lifespan.
Tankless Water Heaters Run On Gas And Electric
Second, unlike conventional storage water heaters, tankless water heaters are more technologically advanced. The system generates heated water on demand without having to store up water in the unit. This allows for a more economical solution to providing hot water in the home. This is because tankless water heaters use electric and gas components. The water is not heated until it is in demand (hence the name) such as when you turn on the faucet. Tankless water heaters are also significantly smaller than a conventional storage water heater. Because of its compact size, the water heater takes up less room and can easily fit in a closet space.
Tankless Water Heaters Save You Money In The Long Run
Thirdly, tankless water heaters are initially more pricey than conventional storage water heaters. However they end up saving you more money over time. In the long run, tankless water heaters will save you money on your electric bill because of its energy efficiency. In comparison to other water heater systems, tankless water heaters will use 20-30% less energy since it does not heat the typical 40 gallons of water for a home.
Depending on your home’s needs, you may need to ask yourself how much hot water you use. Each unit will have a specific gallons per minute ratio, which measures how many gallons of cold water the system can convert into hot water in a given time frame. Keep in mind that if your family unit is large and demands a higher ratio of hot water, then you will have to look for a model with a high gallons per minute ratio.
Finally, one advantage you have as a resident in California, is that our groundwater temperature is at a moderate level. During the winter season, the temperature contrast can be extreme in other states, which means their tankless water heaters will expend more energy to heat up their very cold water. However, since California has moderate conditions, your tankless water heaters won’t need to work as hard to heat up water year-round. The reason why this is an important factor in energy efficiency is because your tankless water heater will not need to spend as much time converting the cold water tap for your home.
Taking Care Of Your Tankless Water Heater
Just like conventional storage water heaters, tankless water heaters will need to be cleansed and drained once in a while. Hard water will cause sediment to build up over time. This can damage and slow down your water heater’s efficiency. One way to maintain your tankless water heater’s health is to pour vinegar into the system’s boiler to flush out the residue and layers of sediment. However, keep in mind that in order to do this you will need to have a flush kit installed.
