Do you want instant hot water? A tankless water heater is an in-demand water heater providing hot water to your home when you need it. The size of the tank is significantly smaller from a standard water heater, where you often see large 40-gallon, or larger tanks in the home. Tankless water heaters provide the benefit of reducing energy consumption.
Tankless water heaters will work without a large storage tank. When you turn your hot water tap on, the cold water travels through the tankless water heater where it is heated by a gas burner or electric heat element. This means, you will have a steady stream of hot water as long as the faucet is turned on. The only difference is the flow rate may be less from what you are used to with a standard water heater.
On average, we see tankless water heaters offering hot water at a rate of 2-5 gallons a minute. If you have a large household, you will need to consider your best options for hot water as it can struggle to keep up with several things running at the same time, such as the dishwasher, washing machine, and the shower. We can install multiple tankless water heaters in the home, which might be the best option if you are considering adding more hot water heaters to your home to keep up with hot water demands.
