Tankless Water Heaters

Going tankless is like discovering fire — transformative!

Tankless Water Heater Services

For many, it’s hard to separate the idea of a home’s water heater from its tank. That’s because the most common type of water heater used in homes today is the traditional tanked unit. They’ve been used for years to reliably provide homes with hot water by using natural gas or electricity to heat a water reservoir for later use.

While these types of water heaters have stood the test the time and have proven their usefulness, the plumbing experts here at Raptor Rooter & Plumbing want our customers to know that there are other options available for their homes.

If you’re looking for an efficient water heater upgrade that can provide unlimited hot water and potentially save you money, a tankless water heater may be for you.

How Does A Tankless Hot Water Heater Work?

Tankless water heaters are fairly simple in design and function, using a very straightforward process:

  1. Cold water enters the unit via an inlet pipe.
  2. A flow sensor device detects water flowing through the unit and signals it to activate the heating element.
  3. The heating element, powered by gas or electricity, heats a heat exchanger.
  4. As the water flows over the hot metal of the heat exchanger, the heat is transferred to it.
  5. Hot water exits the unit and is delivered to the needed fixture via the plumbing system.
  6. Once the tap is turned off, the water heater stops heating as well.

Benefits Of Tankless Water Heaters

Unlimited Hot Water

One of the main benefits of upgrading to a tankless water heater is the unlimited hot water they provide. Thanks to being capable of heating water on demand and not having to rely on a reservoir, the amount of hot water they can produce is virtually limitless.

Energy Efficiency

With the ability to produce unlimited hot water, it would be valid to ask, “is a tankless water heater more efficient?” The answer is yes! Considering the average user, switching to a tankless hot water heater can reduce utility bills by $100-$200 per year.

These units are more efficient than their tanked counterparts because only having to heat water on demand requires less energy than continually maintaining the temperature of a large tank of water.

Space Saving

The removal of the tank comes with the obvious benefit of extra space. While the benefit may seem obvious, homeowners are often surprised by how much utility freeing up that little bit of space can provide – whether that’s giving you a few more storage options inside a closet or opening up space in your garage.

Longer Lifespan

Another benefit of not relying on a tank, tankless water heaters tend to last longer than other units. This is simply because there are fewer parts to wear down. Tanks always have the potential to crack and their interior can become corroded. Tankless units don’t have these issues, contributing to a longer lifespan.

Improved Water Quality

As mentioned above, the insides of tanks tend to corrode without proper maintenance and care. This corrosion is caused by an accumulation of minerals and debris which can also directly contribute to lowering the quality of your home’s water. Since tankless water heaters don’t store your hot water, they’re known for producing higher-quality water.
