Space-saving tankless water heaters are growing in popularity. They’re green, efficient and come in various capacities, so you can find one that’s right for large, medium or tiny homes in Southwest Washington.
Tankless water heaters, also called on-demand water heaters, produce hot water as you need it. A tankless water heater can help reduce energy use and utility bills because it doesn’t store hot water like conventional tank heaters.
Simpson Plumbing, with locations in Vancouver and Camas, WA, installs tankless water heaters from leading manufacturers such as Aquastar, Bosch, Rinnai, Navien and Ruud. We’ll help you choose the right model based on your household size, water usage and power source.
Our water heaters are backed by warranties. Our relationship with suppliers ensures you get the best deals on appliances, parts, labor and services for years to come.
How Do Tankless Water Heaters Work?
When you turn a hot water tap, cold water pipes through the water heater and is warmed by a gas or electric powered element. The unit delivers a constant supply of hot water. You’ll never have an empty tank or wait for a new batch of water to heat.
To ensure an adequate amount of hot water, you will need a unit with an appropriate flow rate. Rates are measured in gallons per minute (GPM). A rate of 2-5 gallons per minute is typical for a single heater.
Some people choose to have more than one unit if their household uses a lot of hot water simultaneously. For instance, if more than one person is showering and a load of laundry is also in progress, a single heater might not be fast enough. Separate units can be dedicated to individual appliances and faucets. Many homes, however, will do well with just one heater.
Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters
On-demand heaters use less energy than tank heaters. For a family that needs about 40 gallons of hot water per day, these units can be up to 34 percent more efficient than a storage tank. Energy.gov estimates a typical family saves around $100 a year if they install an EnergyStar tankless water heater.
Tankless heaters have a longer life than tank heaters. They may last 20 years, twice as long as the expected lifespan of a standard heater. In addition, because the units are repairable, many tankless heaters last considerably longer than expected.
Plus, when you buy an approved, high-efficiency model, you may be eligible for a tax rebate.
