When it’s time for a new water heater, energy efficiency is typically near the top of many people’s needs in Jackson. A tankless water heater is a decent choice for saving energy. In fact, a tankless water heater is 8–34 percent more energy efficient than a storage water heater, according to energy.gov.
Unlike traditional tank heaters that heat gallons of water and store it for a later time, tankless water heaters use gas burners or electric coils to heat water on an as-needed basis, which may save you a lot on energy expenses. Since the heated water isn’t stored for use for later use, you won’t be paying for standby energy losses like you may have to with tank heaters. You’ll also benefit from having a constant supply of hot water. They are compact in size, energy-efficient in design and low-cost to run.
When you turn on a hot water tap, cold water goes through the unit where either a gas burner or an electric element heats it. Then it goes to the tap, where you get hot water. One note about tankless water heaters—particularly for larger households—is that the flow rate of hot water may not be great enough to accommodate numerous uses at once. One of our specialists will help you figure out what your flow rate is and offer recommendations based on their knowledge.
Some people choose to install a separate tankless water heater that’s chosen for a specific appliance, like the dishwasher or the clothes washer—or as a booster for a solar water heating system. However, a lot of households in the Jackson area do just fine with a single tankless water heater. Let’s look at some of the perks of having one:
- Most tankless water heaters have a lifecycle of 20 years—that’s about twice as long as the lifecycle of a normal tank heater.
- Most tankless units have a federal tax rebate.
- Tankless water heaters rarely run out of hot water.
- You get better energy efficiency with a tankless water heater because they are more efficient without standby heat loss and only use the power needed to heat the amount of water needed at any time.
- Tankless models take up much less space than traditional tank water heaters. They can even be mounted on the walls and some can be put in small cupboards or closets. Smaller units can be put in under cabinets or in a closet, closer to where they’ll be used.
