How can water heaters decrease your stress at home?
You would never dream of leaving a light on while you’re gone for the day, but this is exactly what a conventional storage-tank water heater does in your home. Even though hot water is used only occasionally, the cycle of hot water production is at work 24/7. The need to live a worry-free and energy efficient life has finally prompted a much needed change in the way that hot water is created and stored, so tankless water heaters are becoming far more popular.
Families that rely on hot water for showers in the morning, should not have to fight over who gets to clean up first, in fear of running out of hot water. A tanked water heater that keeps water hot is only so large and when all the water has been used, it can take a long time for a fresh supply to become available.
Welcome the new generation of flash-heated water. A tankless water heater does not need to store water and keep it heated. Instead, it generates the hot water only when asked for, saving at least 60% on energy consumption. Because there is no storage tank to empty, a limitless supply of hot water is ever present. Regardless of whether you are first or fourth in the shower, there is never a fear of water suddenly turning cold.
The breakdown of a tank water heater has its own set of worries. It is not a matter of if your unit will burst, pouring as much as 50 gallons of water into your house, but when. There is no way to prevent the build up of rust and corrosion on the inside of a tank water heater, making it a sitting time bomb. Considering the new wave of energy-efficiency, worry-free hot water, and the degeneration of liners, tankless water heaters are very attractive.
If you want to create a stress-free environment for yourself and your family, consider the technological advanced method of heating water. Tankless water heaters create no corrosion, only work on demand, and are guaranteed for longer use. Only requiring a tiny storage area and little electricity, the monster of tanked water heaters could soon become a thing of the past.
