Have you ever considered a tankless water heater for your home and whether your property is a suitable candidate? In this video by This Old House, experts discuss all the advantages and how the tankless water heater works. For one, you can enjoy instantaneous heated water. Unlike a heated water system using a burner that remains on throughout the day, even using more electricity, the tankless electric water system is more energy efficient.
Speaking of energy efficiency, the water system allows you to choose gas or electricity as the system setup. But not all homes are suited to this variation because to use a tankless water heater, the system needs to use a massive boost of energy to heat the water in one go.
In some regions, for instance, Florida, the groundwater is hotter than water in New England. Thus, for the system to heat water from 70 to 120 degrees is easier than having to heat from 40 to 120 degrees. There are some drawbacks like a limited amount of water per minute, and in some cases, if it is a large home with many bathrooms, having this system is not the best option. However, if you have a small apartment or maybe just use one shower bathroom, you could save using this installation. Speak to the pros in your area and check if you can benefit.
