The Buzz About Tankless Heaters
Tankless water heaters have been gaining in popularity over the past decade as they are an energy-efficient and space-saving alternative to traditional tank water heaters. Unlike traditional water heaters that require energy to keep water in the tank at a consistent temperature even when water is not being used, tankless heaters are heated only when the fixture is in use. The water flow triggers the heat exchanger to quickly warm up water.
Tankless heaters can be electric or gas-powered. Electric tankless heaters are smaller versions and are hooked up at the point of use (for example, a kitchen sink). They supply hot water for that particular fixture only. Gas-powered tankless heaters are slightly larger and can supply hot water for two or more fixtures.
Advantages of Tankless Heaters:
- Reduce energy bills by up to 50%.
- Enjoy continuous hot water without worrying about it running out.
- Last 10 years longer than traditional water heaters (20 years vs. 10 years).
- Takes up less space. Electric tankless heaters are roughly the size of a suitcase.
Disadvantages of Tankless Heaters:
- Higher upfront costs. Tankless heaters can cost up to three times as much as traditional systems.
- May require extra amperage for electric heaters, or a larger gas line for gas-powered heaters.
- Supplies fewer fixtures at a time.
A knowledgeable water heater technician can go over the pros and cons of each type of system and advise you of which heater best suits the needs of your household.
Signs Your Water Heater is Breaking Down
The average traditional tank water heater has a lifespan of around 10 years. If you’ve noticed the following signs, it may be time to schedule a repair or replacement.
Leaking: It’s commonplace for older tanks to develop a small leak or rupture. A leak typically indicates the need for a replacement tank.
Noisy, rumbling sounds: A noisy water heater often is a sign of too much sediment build-up. Sediment in the tank impedes the heating of the water and requires more energy to heat up water.
Rust: If you notice a metallic smell or taste from your water, it may be an indication of a rusting tank. Check the anode rod inside your tank for signs of rusting.
