The last thing you want to start or end your day is a cold shower or bath. Several factors could cause you to suffer through that chilling experience, from the outside temperature in winter to a leaky water tank or pipe to having too many people take a shower or bath before you. But when you install a tankless water heater in your home, you are guaranteed to always have an endless supply of soothing hot water available whenever you need it. Tankless water heaters rely on state-of-art technology to eliminate the causes of cold water that should be hot.
The problem with a traditional old-style water heater is that it has a storage tank that holds from 40 to 60 gallons of water that must be pre-heated before you have hot water available. By replacing the water tank with a system that immediately heats water on-demand, a tankless water heater eliminates the problem by running the water through a heat exchanger between the water supply and the tap. It’s that simple! The technology of the heat exchanger in a tankless water heater is not so simple, but it’s already been perfected, so you don’t have to worry about that and you don’t have to ever take another cold shower or bath again.
Another problem with an old-fashioned water heater is that to keep the water in the tank hot for when you are ready to use it, the system needs to use considerable energy throughout the day to maintain the high temperature of the water. Regardless of whether you use electricity or natural gas to heat that water, you are still paying throughout every day to maintain heat in dozens of gallons of water that you may only use for a few minutes each day. That concept is so environmentally wasteful and outdated that it seems silly when you think about it. With a tankless water heater, you only pay for the energy you need to heat water when you are using it. That makes much more sense and costs you much less money.
The best part of an on-demand tankless water heater system is that you don’t have to plan ahead to determine when you can use hot water to run your dishwasher and do the laundry. Wouldn’t life be better if after dinner you could run your dishwasher while cleaning a load of dirty laundry at the same time your kids are taking their baths and showers – and then you can immediately step into your own relaxing hot bath or shower before going to sleep? Yes, life would be great if you could do all of that – and you can by upgrading from a traditional water heater to a new tankless water heater from Navien.
No matter how much or how little hot water you use, a tankless water heater makes sense, because it provides an endless supply of hot water, even if you are using it in several places simultaneously, and it reduces your energy cost – plus it takes up less space than a traditional water heater because it eliminates the big water tank.
