Tankless Water Heaters
NEVER WORRY ABOUT HOT WATER AGAIN
It’s the end of a long day of doing yard work and you are so looking forward to a nice hot shower. What you don’t know is the household laundry was done just before you came inside. The result: Your shower quickly turns cold and let’s just say it doesn’t last very long. Masters Heating & Cooling can make sure it never happens again with a new tankless water heater.
HOW IT WORKS
We all know how a tank style water heater works. It holds 40 or 50 gallons of water that is kept hot all the time either with a gas burner or an electric heating element. When the water in the tank is exhausted, like our example above, it can take a long time to heat the cold water that takes its place. A tankless water heater doesn’t heat the water ahead of time. It’s heated on demand. Additionally, a tankless system can be equipped with a recirculating pump which supplies you with instant hot water. No more wasting water waiting for the hot water to arrive in your bathroom or kitchen.
TANKLESS USES FAR LESS ENERGY
This is the other big advantage of going tankless. Keeping 50 gallons of water hot all day, every day, is a huge waste of energy. The on demand system only burns gas when you turn on the hot water faucet. Your energy costs for hot water can be cut by as much as 50%.
CONSIDER TANKLESS AN INVESTMENT
The upfront investment is going to be higher for a tankless system but will pay off in the long run. A reasonable life expectancy for a traditional tank-style heater is 7 to 10 years. A tankless system will last 20 years or longer. You should get a return on your upfront investment in about six years because of the energy savings. Here are a few other advantages to going tankless:
- Convenient size: A tankless heater is about the size of an average suitcase. It is usually hung on a wall and doesn’t take up any floor space.
- Safer: There is very little risk of catastrophic water damage. Even if a tankless unit starts leaking, chances are the leak will be minor compared to a tank-style unit that fails.
- Winterization: If you leave your home during winter, you know what a hassle it is to drain your tank-style water heater. It takes just a few minutes to drain and shut down a tankless unit.
