Tankless Water Heaters

Tankless Water Heaters in Cedar Grove, NJ

The concept of a tankless water heater is an old one. The first gas-powered tankless systems were invented at the end of the 19th century. However, these tankless systems lacked the effectiveness and energy efficiency of storage tank water heaters, which quickly became dominant in both homes and businesses and remained so for many decades. But technology never stands still. Advances have now made the tankless water heater a serious competitor with the more conventional water heater. In Europe, tankless water heaters have surpassed storage tank systems for residential and commercial use. On this side of the Atlantic, tankless water heaters have gained popularity with each year.

How Does a Tankless Water Heater Work?

As the name indicates, tankless water heaters do not use a large tank to store water kept at a constant temperature. Instead, a tankless water heater consists of a heat exchanger, which can often be mounted on a wall. The hot water line passes through this heat exchanger, and whenever water starts to move through the exchanger (because a tap has come on somewhere in the house demanding hot water) natural gas or electrical heating elements transfer heat directly to the water. This is known as "on demand" water heating, since the system heats the water as it is needed, not keeping it heated on standby.

Reasons to Have Tankless Water Heater Installation

You can probably determine some of the advantages of a tankless system just on the description of how it works: if it only heats up water as it’s needed, then it won’t consume as much energy as a conventional tank water heater. A tankless system will help you save on your energy bills, and it’ll only take a few years for the water heater to pay back its installation cost.

The other major benefit of a tankless water heater is that it doesn’t run out of hot water. There’s no standing supply of hot water that can be depleted, as is the case with a storage water heater. As soon as you turn on a tap or an appliance that calls for hot water, the water heater simply heats up more!

Because tankless water heaters don’t suffer from the pressures of keeping a large volume of water stored under almost continual heat, they tend to last longer than competitor systems. And if space presents an issue for your home, the small size of the tankless water heater is a great advantage.
