Whittier Water Heaters – Standard vs Tankless Water Heaters
Considering a Whittier tankless water heater install? It’s best to understand the facts of the pros and cons to make the most informed decision.
How Do They Work?
A tankless water heater, otherwise known as instant hot water heater or on-demand hot water heater, uses small, highly-efficient electric burners to heat your water as it runs directly to your faucet, without the need to store the water in a tank. Whereas, a standard water heater preheats water and stores it in a tank until it’s needed.
Tankless water heaters that use less than 41 gallons or less per day, are on average 24 – 34% more efficient than standard water heaters according to energy.gov. Water heaters 55 gallons or more have efficiency gains of 25 to 50 percent depending on the technology used.
Tankless water heaters have a lifespan that varies from model to model, but on average, is over 20 years of normal use. A standard tank-style water heater only has a life of 8 – 12 years on average.
A standard water heater has a lower product cost, but also costs more on your energy bill to run. The improved energy efficiency of a tankless water heater gives the benefit of a reduced energy bill, as well as the benefit of a longer lifespan of about 10 years.
