Tankless Water Heaters
Have you ever ran out of hot water at the most inconvenient time, like in the evening when it’s time to run a bath for the kids?
Tired of finding out your pilot light blew out on your water heater when you are standing in front of the shower, ready to jump in, and NO HOT WATER?
Do you have a large or jetted tub that drains your hot water tank every time you fill it up?

Tankless or, “on demand” water heaters heat the water as you use it rather than storing unused hot water in a tank that cools off and needs to constantly re-heated. This makes them very energy efficient.
Because it heats water as it passes through it, you will never run out of hot water in the middle of a shower or half way through filling the bathtub. However, you do not want to set the expectation that you can run the dishwasher, clothes washer, and two showers at the same time and expect to have hot water to all of them. Water flow rates can change the output temperature of the water the higher they go. As long as you understand a little about the limitations, you will be happy with the results.
The life of a tankless water heater is basically double of what a traditional tank water heater. Tankless can be used for about 20 years if installed correctly, where traditional water heaters are 8-10 years. So accurately comparing price would be purchasing 2 traditional water heaters vs. one tankless.
A tankless water heater does not use a standing pilot light like most standard water heaters. It has an electronic ignition similar to the igniters found in newer furnaces. This means that on a windy day, it won’t blow out your pilot light! You won’t find yourself standing naked in front of your shower yelling “The pilot light is out!” ever again.
The tankless water heater mounts on a wall which creates more room for storage or other uses were the old “tank” water heater used to sit. Sizing a tankless water heater and understanding how it works is key to your ultimate satisfaction.
