Tankless technology that saves you time.
If you've been thinking about investing in a tankless water heater, but haven't made a commitment, think no more. Going tankless with your water heater is a wonderful idea. These water heaters are growing in popularity; however, most consumers are still concerned. Majority are unsure of investing in the new and unusual. However, this article is designed to take the worry and fear out of making a purchase.
When selecting the best type and model of water heater for your home, consider the following:
Availability, cost, and fuel type. The energy source you use for the water heating will not only affect the water heater’s annual operation costs, but also its size and efficiency.
Size. To provide your household with enough hot water and to maximize efficiency, you need a properly sized water heater.
Energy efficiency. To maximize energy and save on cost, you’ll want to know how energy efficient a water heater is before you purchase it.
Costs. Before you purchase a water heater, it's also a good idea to estimate its annual operating costs and compare those costs with other less or more energy-efficient models.
Also be sure to do what you can to reduce your hot water use. You may also want to explore other strategies such as drain-water heat recovery to save money on your water heating bill.
When selecting a new water heater, it's important to consider what fuel type or energy source you will use, including its availability and cost. The fuel used by a water heating system will not only affect annual operation costs but also the water heater's size and energy efficiency.
There are two kinds of these water heaters: point-of-use and whole house.
Point-Of-Use - A point-of-use water heater can be installed under a sink or near a shower or washer dryer. If used this way, a point-of use unit supplies hot water to the immediate area only.
If this is going to be your primary source of hot water, you'll need to install more than one unit. If it's not, then it's important to know you'll still need a primary source of hot water. This unit will supplement your existing tanked one very well.
Whole House - A whole house version is typically installed in a garage or closet and is designed to provide hot water to multiple outlets. Although this type of water heater is larger than point-of-use models, they're still compact in size, making them great space savers.
Like a point-of-use system, they are wall mountable and a great replacement for the tanked one you're using. No matter which version of you choose, you're guaranteed to appreciate its efficiency and space saving design.
Choosing to invest in a water heater is the first decision. After that, selecting one to meet your needs is the next step. Knowing how the water will be used and how often is important. All of this information combined will help you select the perfect model.
