Efficient Gas & Electric Tankless Water Heaters
On-demand water heaters, commonly referred to as tankless water heaters, deliver hot water as needed. This does not imply that the water will be instantly hot; the water still needs to go through a heating process. When a hot water valve is opened, such as at a sink or shower, water swiftly passes through a gas burner or electric element in the appliance to heat it up. After that, the faucet receives the hot water. The heating process comes to an end when the hot water is turned off.

When compared to a conventional tank water heater, which continuously heats the water stored in the tank, tankless water heaters use less energy because they only run as needed. The initial cost of a tankless water heater is higher than that of a tank water heater, despite the fact that energy costs can be reduced over time. There are several factors to take into account while choosing between the two, including upfront costs, performance, the need for hot water in the home, and expected lifespan.
Is a Tankless Water Heaters Right for Me?
On-demand hot water does not equate to continuous hot water. Tankless water heaters typically provide 2 to 5 gallons of hot water per minute. Tankless water heaters powered by gas have higher flow rates than those powered by electricity. Even the largest gas-fired models, nevertheless, can struggle to accommodate several simultaneous demands. For instance, running a shower and a washing machine simultaneously can result in a higher demand for hot water than some units can supply. Additionally, unlike a water heater with a tank that stores gallons of hot water in reserve, a tankless hot water heater would not deliver hot water during a power outage.
Choosing The Right Water Heater
It will be a waste of money and cause a lot of irritation to buy a water heater that has insufficient output to meet the needs of the home. It’s equally undesirable to have too much hot water because it drains the budget unnecessarily. To better understand how much water your household uses, Fante’s technicians spend some time doing so before giving a suggestion. Multiple units can be added if a single tankless unit is unable to provide the required gallons per minute. That can be a costly addition. In the event a tankless water heater is not a good fit for your hot water needs, we will provide you with alternatives such as a traditional tank water heater or heat pump water heater.
