Never Run Out Of Hot Water!

Having access to hot water in our homes isn’t really something that we think about until the moment that it’s not there. It’s only until we are the last ones to take a shower and we’ve just put shampoo in our hair – THAT is the moment when the water will run cold! This scenario highlights one of the biggest problems with traditional water heaters: only having access to a limited amount of hot water. Beyond that though, traditional hot water heaters also present the issue of energy inefficiency from heat transfer through the tank. Wouldn’t it be great to have an option that would allow you to have endless hot water so you wouldn’t have to worry about any surprise cold showers? Or how about a lower energy bill? It’s for this reason that many people are considering tankless water heaters, like trutankless, to provide hot water for their homes.

Before we talk about why the tankless water heater has gained a leg up against the traditional water heater, let’s take a look at how each of these systems work as a whole. Traditionally, a water heater has been a large tank that fills with water from the main line of your water system. Heating mechanisms within the water heater heat the water to a predetermined temperature, and once that temperature is reached the heating mechanism is shut off. When hot water leaves, more cold water enters behind it so that there is a consistent amount of water in the tank. The hot water is stored in the tank until a hot water tap inside the house is turned on. If the water in the tank starts to cool too much, the heating mechanism is turned back on and the process starts all over again. However, heating the water in the tank doesn’t happen right away and requires a bit of time, so if your family uses the water available in the tank before more water can be heated to the same temperature, your water will run cold. Also, instead of providing you hot water only when you need it, traditional tanks keep a storage of hot water at all times, and use energy to do keep it heated! As mentioned before, traditional water heaters are inefficient when it comes to energy, because loss of heat from the water within happens even with more insolated tanks. The wasted energy in repeatedly reheating the water within the tank as a result of heat dispersal is known as “standby energy loss” and can put a major dent in your wallet! Wouldn’t it make a little more sense, however, to only have to use the energy to heat the water when it was needed? Sounds like a lot of wasted energy in order to have hot water at the ready, right?

It’s precisely this wasted energy and limited hot water that has driven people to look at tankless water heaters for other options in providing hot water to their home. A tankless water heater is a compact unit (much smaller than the traditional tank) that is attached to a wall. It contains a series of coils and tubes that work to heat water traveling through it at a much faster rate than those in a tank would. Because it is able to heat water so quickly, it doesn’t need to maintain a storage of preheated water for you. Instead, a tankless water heater instantly heats the water as it is needed – or only when a hot water tap is turned on! This immediately saves you tons of dollars on energy costs as you are avoiding standby energy loss from water kept in a tank. The only time energy is used towards powering the heating mechanisms in the water heater is when you have turned on the hot water tap. In addition, not needing to rely on a tank that holds limited water means that you always have access to the amount of hot water that your family needs, no more, no less. Think about what this means for those mornings when the entire family needs to get ready for the day! Nobody has to fight over who gets to shower first and you always can be confident that all your family members will get the nice, hot shower that they deserve. With a tankless water heater, you can be assured that you are saving money while ensuring that your family is well taken care of.
