More often than not, our Orange County and Los Angeles plumbers are asked about tankless water heaters – what they are, how they work, and the advantages of ownership. Discover what our top Orange County and Los Angeles plumbers have to say about these tankless solutions and find out if they would be right for you.
Unlike their traditional counterpart, tankless water heaters heat water on demand without the use of a storage tank. Instead, as water travels into the unit either a gas burner or electric element heats the water on the spot.
Benefits of tankless water heaters include:
Since tankless units heat water as it flows through the unit, it allows for an infinite supply of hot water. As a result, tankless owners will never have to worry about running out of hot water mid shower, which might be the only convincing one needs to make the switch.
Energy Bill Savings
Since hot water is only produced on demand with tankless units, there is no radiant heat loss, which can result in up to a 50% savings on your energy bill. In fact, experts agree that homes using 41 gallons or less of hot water daily, can save anywhere from 24%–34% on their gas and electric bill by switching to a tankless model. Additionally, individuals who install tankless units at each of their hot water outlets can save even more.
Looking to maximize a small space? Tankless units are much smaller than their traditional counterpart. So, if you are living in a small studio, flat or apartment, tankless just might be the way to go.
Compared to traditional water heaters, tankless units have twice the life expectancy. With an average lifespan of 20 years, these units lead the way in longevity.
