Having proper hot water in your Lubbock, Texas home is critical to maintaining the comfort of both you and your guests. While you want a water heater that is reliable, you also want to make sure to choose one that provides better energy efficiency for your home. If you are planning on installing a new water heater, consider investing in a tankless model.
How Does a Tankless Heater Work?
Unlike a traditional water heater, a tankless heater does not use a holding tank where the water is heated before it is delivered to your faucets and appliances. With a tankless model, the water will come directly from your water source and through the heating element in your tankless system. The water is immediately heated and delivered when you need it.
Benefits of a Tankless Water Heater
There are many benefits that come with investing in a water heater. While some of the benefits are immediate, other benefits will be noticed over time. Benefits you can expect with a tankless water heater include:
- Space savings – As the name suggests, a tankless water heater does not have the large tank as part of the unit. This makes the unit significantly smaller, allowing it to fit in a storage closet or on a wall as long as it is close to your water pipes.
- Saving on utility bills – With a traditional model, a heating source will need to constantly heat new water being delivered in the tank so that it can be sent out to fixtures and appliances. With a tankless model, the unit only heats the water when it is used, reducing the overall energy consumption, and saving you a significant amount on your energy bills.
- Quicker hot water delivery – Your tankless water heater will heat the water as you use it and when you have used a significant amount of hot water, you won’t need to wait for the whole tank to heat up to get more.
