A water heater is considered a long-term investment and necessary in every home. When the time comes to replace the current water heater, do you plan to purchase the more energy-conscious tankless water heater? At Wallington Plumbing & Heating Supply, we have a wide range of tankless water heaters that are energy efficient and cost-friendly.
A tankless water heater, also known as on-demand water heater, does not store hot water; rather, it heats the water as you use it, providing instant hot water on demand. The primary distinction between traditional water heaters and electric on demand water heaters is how they work. When you turn on the faucet, the flow of water activates the water heater. As a result, the heating elements can quickly heat the water as it passes through the tankless unit. This provides the user with instant hot water. The great thing about on-demand water heaters is that the heating elements turn off as soon as you turn off the hot water, so energy is only consumed for the hot water used.
An on-demand water heater saves more on energy costs due to efficient usage and instant cut-offs. Because they heat the water directly, tankless water heaters take up much less space than storage water heaters. Tankless water heaters can typically provide 2 to 5 gallons of hot water per minute.
