Tankless water heater- the future of water heating

Access to hot water is a comfort that has gone from being a luxury to a basic need. It doesn’t matter if the weather outside is freezing cold or scorching hot, you will always have hot water running through your pipes, thanks to domestic water heaters. However, water heaters are known for being notoriously power hungry. Older heaters consume up to twice as much as modern water heaters! The advancement in water heater technology has seen a significant shift in people’s attitude towards water heaters. One such technical marvel in the field of water heaters is the advent of tankless water heaters. Here are a few reasons why you need to invest in a god tankless water heater.

Save money

Although tankless water heaters have high initial costs, they more than make up for it by being energy efficient. They do not consume as much energy as a water heater with a tank, as it does not waste time and energy in heating up water before hand. Instead, the water is heated up as and when you want it. When you turn on the knob, cold water from the tank flows through the pipes, before encountering the heating element, which heats the water in small batches, thus giving you access to hot water without having to wait. This reduces the amount of electricity consumed in heating the water greatly.

Space constraints do not matter

One of the biggest peeves of installing a tank water heater is having to install a water tank to collect and store hot water. This can be cumbersome in a small bathroom. Besides, these water tanks have a tendency to disintegrate over time, leading to heat loss, leaks and other problems. With tankless water heaters such problems are minimized to a great extent, since you don’t have to deal with a water tank.

Choosing the right sized water heaters

Each home is different and so are the hot water requirements. Hence, it is important to choose the right sized water heaters that suit your needs perfectly. Make sure that the type of water heater you buy satisfies the water heating needs of all your bathrooms. You should take care to note how many heaters would effectively satisfy your water heating needs.

Choosing water heaters that are smaller than what you require will result in insufficient heating solutions. However, choosing water heaters that are much bigger than what you need will result in an increased electricity bills.

Having hot water in the tanks is one thing; however, one should also look into how efficiently the unit can cope with continuous water requirements. Tank water heaters can easily cope with such needs, but tankless water heaters are incapable of handling these continuous hot water needs.

However, if you are looking to install tankless water heaters, you can link two or more units to ensure that all your water heating needs is met. Linking multiple units might sound expensive, but it is quite effective when you need hot water for washing, bathing and other domestic needs.

If you want to opt for tank water heaters, then you need to choose newer models that are considerably more energy efficient. Although the can be quite a bit more expensive compared to older models, these work out well in the long run in operational and lowered maintenance costs.

Three common causes of faulty water heaters

A faulty water heater is the perfect recipe for a bad start of the day, hence ruining your entire day. Broken water heaters do not sufficiently heat up water, or they only produce scalding hot water- both being unfavorable. Apart from checking if the heater is switched on, here are a few tips to check for faults in the heater.

  1. Check if the heater temperature gauge is set incorrectly. If the water is too hot or too cold, then this might be the most likely problem. This can be fixed easily, by looking through the manual of your water heater.
  2. The next common problem is a broken filament. The filament operation is detected by the pilot light, which should always be on. If it isn’t, then either the light is damaged or the filament is damaged. Checking for both is recommended. Checking and replacing a filament is best left to the professionals as it requires special tools and expertise in order to replace the filament.
  3. The plumbing can also be a major reason for insufficient heating. Older pipes and plumbing can have a high heat dissipation, thus cooling off hot water considerably before it reaches your taps.

Here are a few tried and tested ways to get the best out of your water heaters, without spending a lot-

These easy to operate contraptions significantly reduce the water flowing through the showerhead, thus reducing water wastage via run off. Better yet, you can switch to taking baths instead of showers as well.
  • Using warm water only when necessity calls for is a good way to keep the water heaters for over working. Cool water works well when washing your hands.
  • Maintain your plumbing and fix any leaks as soon as possible. Water leakage, especially from the water heater will result in a constant flow of cool water into the heating tank, which result in an increased consumption of power to heat the water.
  • Consider upgrading. Water heater technology changes every few years, with efficient models flooding the markets with each upgrade. Replacing your existing water heater with a newer, energy efficient model will surely reduce heating costs.
