What Are Some Advantages To Choosing A Tankless Water Heater?

There are many advantages to installing a tankless water heater in your home. The biggest advantage is that a unit can produce an endless supply of hot water, without the risk of leaking or making your home unsafe. It also takes up less space than you realize and has a significantly longer lifespan than other water tank units. 

Tankless water heater will save you more money over a longer period of time by using less fuel on a daily basis. They will provide hot water only when you need it and deliver it instantly to curb your overall water and heating usage. Since they also require no tanks, tankless units are smaller in size and more flexible to install either on the outside of your home or in a basement. They are more compact than standard water heaters and can be easily mounted on a wall or corner if you have limited room space. 

Regarding its energy efficiency, tankless water heaters use 30% to 50% less energy than traditional water tanks. This can help you save up to or above $100 a year in energy costs, especially if you have a large family in your household. They only operate on natural gas or propane and you won’t need to keep any extra water tanks. 

Before installing a tankless water heating unit, however, our expert technicians will help you calculate the exact size you need for it. 

How Can A CHCL Technician Calculate The Size Of A Tankless Unit That I Need For My Home?

Before a technician installs a tankless water heater into your home, they will need to calculate and estimate the size of the unit you need to use. Two factors that can go into the final purchasing decision is the maximum amount of hot water your home needs and how much water per minute can be warmed up, as well as to what temperature. 

To correctly estimate the size of the tankless water heater, a rough estimation of maximum hot water needs to be measured at any given point. Technicians will typically have specifications sheets with information, numbers, and other measurements of your tank’s maximum water flow and maximum electric power in kilowatts.  For gas powered tankless heaters, they will usually come with a gallon per minute (GPM) measurement, along with a specific kilowatt number for that model unit. 

To give an example of how the calculations and measurements will be done, a big family of five would need a gas powered tankless water of around 10 GPM with at least 27 kilowatts of power to operate in a northern region. The input water of the tankless water heater has a lower temperature at the start, but will warm up when activated. As a result, your tankless unit won’t need to work extra hard to heat up your water.
