Are you looking to make your Columbia, Maryland, home more energy-efficient? A tankless water heater might be the perfect solution. Compared to standard water heaters, going tankless can significantly reduce your energy bill. Let’s explore how a tankless water heater can make a difference in your home.

How It Works

A tankless water heater uses a gas burner or electric heating element to increase water temperature when you turn on the faucet. Standard water heaters preheat water in a tank, which results in standby heat loss. A tankless heater uses less energy because it doesn’t preheat water that is waiting to be used.

Benefits of a Tankless Water Heater

Tankless water heaters offer an array of benefits. For starters, compared to standard water heaters, they use up to 34 percent less energy to heat water for an entire household. Plus, the heater isn’t in use when you’re not running water, which results in less wear-and-tear on its parts. For this reason, tankless heaters last about 20 years, while standard heaters typically last 10 to 15 years. A tankless water heater is better for the environment, saves money, and lasts longer than a standard water heater.

Drawbacks of a Tankless Water Heater

Unfortunately, there are some downsides to tankless water heaters. They are more expensive to purchase than standard heaters, which can offset the long-term savings. Since tankless heaters don’t preheat water, they restrict the flow rate to ensure your water can reach the desired temperature. Larger households sometimes struggle to keep water hot when multiple appliances run simultaneously.

Multiple Tankless Water Heaters

It can sometimes be beneficial to install two or more tankless water heaters in a single household. For example, if one heater is dedicated to the laundry, there’s a smaller chance of running out of hot water when taking a shower or doing dishes. Both units will last longer because each will be used less often.

A tankless water heater may be a good choice for your household. To learn more about selecting the best water heater for your home, contact Griffith Energy Services or call us at 888-474-3391.
