Products that deliver on all of the consistency and self-maintenance that homeowners expect from tankless water heaters are in high demand. This has created a highly competitive and innovative market for inventers who can optimize and improve upon the features of a tankless water heating system. As the consumer, this trend is going to give you some options. Options are good! But between gas vs. electric, Condensing vs. Non-Condensing, and standard vs. hybrid, you may feel overwhelmed. How do you know which water heater is the right one for your home?
We’ve created a brief, preliminary guide to what you should expect from a tankless water heater. Our professionals can make recommendations that are specific to you and the size of your home and budget, but this list will set you in the right direction. When it comes to choosing a tankless water heater, there are a three pieces of information to pay close attention to: fuel-type; size, location, and demand; application. Here’s how it gets broken down.
Tankless Fuel Types
Tankless Size, Location, and Demand
How do these three descriptors apply to tankless water heating and to each other? By tankless size, we mean the literal size of the system, which will effect installation cost and savings. By location, we mean where the water heater can connect; there are limited locations in your home that can supply sufficient gas or electric to your water heater. Finally, there’s demand, by which we mean the amount of pressure required by the tankless water heater for the faucet, shower, or appliances it needs to cover. These are all factors that our professionals can explain to you in our up-front estimates. The size, location, and demand are part of the logistics of your tankless system, which must be appropriately adjusted to suit the layout and operation of your home.
Tankless Water Heater Applications
And finally, the third item for consideration is the application, or use, of each tankless water heater you install (should you require more than one). There are point-of-use water heaters for single or multiple points in a single room, thermostatic heaters used to keep water hot over long distances, or whole-home systems.
