What Size Tankless Water Heater Do I Need For My Home?

If you’re planning on buying and installing a tankless water heater, you want one of the right size. You don’t want one that is too tiny, nor do you want a tankless water heater unit that’s too big and consumes a lot of energy. The size of the unit should be appropriate to the hot water needs of your household, as well as the number of people in it and the climate of the surrounding area. 

To determine the right tankless water heater size, we’ll need to make a rough estimate and figure out two things beforehand. First, you need to know the maximum amount of hot water you need for your home. Second, you need to determine how much water per minute or gallons per minute (GPM) that tankless water heater can deliver and heat up the water. 

Newer tankless water heater units can deliver anywhere from 2 GPM to 12 GPM of hot water for an average home. Therefore, units that can deliver 5-10 GPM are the most appropriate for the majority of households. Be sure to check out the specification sheets to look at the maximum water flow and the unit’s maximum electric power in kilowatts (kW). 

To put this in perspective, a family of five people would need a tankless water heater that can deliver 10 GPM of water and around 27 kW of total electricity in colder climates. Since Northern areas have a lower temperature for input water, the tankless water heater has to work extra hard to deliver its contents.  However, if you live in a Southern area where it’s hotter, the energy of a tankless water heater is reduced and the family will use less hot water than the family living in the colder area. 

How Long Do Tankless Water Heaters Last?

The average lifespan of a tankless water heater is up to around 20 years, compared to the shorter lifespan of a standard tank at 10-15 years. If you’re not sure how long your tankless water heater can last, check the serial number on the unit itself. Since these models don’t have a storage tank, there’s less wear and tear when it works. With proper maintenance and inspections, your tankless water heating unit can last you for a long time. 

Because of their lengthy lifespan, tankless water heaters also have longer warranties. So if anything goes wrong with your unit, you can be assured that you will have the financial coverage and assistance you need. Like their average lifespans, tankless water heater warranties can run up to 20 years. 

What Are The Benefits Of Switching Over To A Tankless Water Heater?

One of the main benefits of a tankless water heating unit is that they produce warm water instantly with high-powered gas burners or electric coils. Standard water heaters have to constantly heat and reheat water so that it is always hot, making you lose water and energy. Although tankless water heaters might use a little more power compared to older units, the long-term savings are well worth it. 

Tankless water heaters also use 30 to 50 percent less energy than traditional tanks, which may average around $100 or more annually. Tankless heating units also only heat water when you turn on the faucet and operate on natural gas or propane. They’re also more compact and can be easily mounted on a wall inconspicuously. 

Tankless water heaters have many benefits and can help you save on your water and energy bills. Contact Constant Home Comfort London today to take advantage of special rebates and install a tankless heating unit for your home now.
