As a homeowner you have many options available to you regarding how you heat your water supply. Options include the traditional method of a hot water heater, a tankless water heater, and of course the many brands to choose from. If you are concerned about size, affordability, and efficiency then we encourage you to consult with the experts at Polsinello Fuels Inc. to discuss your tankless water heater options!
How Tankless Water Heaters Function
Tankless water heaters have the technology to heat your water without the use of a storage tank, unlike the traditional water heater method. Once your tap is turned on, the unit will receive a supply of cold water to heat with either a gas burner or electric heating element. Because of this process your tankless water heaters are able to deliver a constant supply of hot water for you. This process is different than the storage tank method which delivers hot water when the tank is full.
Advantages of Tankless Water Heaters
According to the Department of Energy “homes that use 41 gallons or less of hot water daily, demand water heaters can be 24%-34% more energy efficient than conventional storage tank water heaters.” Additionally, tankless water heaters typically have a longer lifespan than traditional storage tanks. Many options available even have parts that can be replaced quickly to extend the tank’s life.
If you’re concerned about the size and how much space a water heater can occupy, tankless water heaters could be an ideal solution for you to discuss with us at Polsinello Fuels Inc. These tend to be smaller and more compact; they can also be installed on a wall, which frees up floor space.
