Are Tankless Water Heaters the Wave of The Future?
Tankless water heaters are becoming more and more common. Some homebuilders install them when they’re building new homes, especially the custom homes.
While it’s now an available feature on some homes, the reason that we should start using tankless water heaters more really comes down to education.
Tankless Water Heaters Are Not a New Product
Tankless water heaters have actually been around between 50 or 60 years now, but much of the use has been in the European markets. They’ve just not been really big in the United States. Chances are if a person has a question about a tankless heater, they either know somebody that has one, they’ve seen a TV commercial, or they’ve run across information on the Internet.
Many times if a person is interested and asking questions about tankless water heaters, we are able to help answer those questions and can provide additional information about specific products that we carry and how they can help.
Everyone here is so used to seeing and using the older model tank-style water heaters. Many people’s thought processes are not easy to change about an item that they’re not used to seeing. Even though it has been proven that they will save you money in the long-run because it’s so efficient, it doesn’t make it much easier.
One Big Misconception
However, one of the biggest misconceptions about tankless water heaters is that people believe they will receive instant hot water. Although it’s an instantaneous water heater, it only heats the water as it comes through the heater. That does not mean that it’s going to be instant hot water at your faucet. The water still has to travel from the tankless water heater to the faucet just like the regular tank-style water heater did.
There are a couple of ways to address this issue and help you provide instant hot water if that’s a concern.
