If you are noticing that your current water heater system is running slowly or seems to be malfunctioning, this is a sign that you should look into installing a tankless water heater or repairing an older model.

You may be wondering if tankless water heaters really have that much more advantage over traditional water heaters. Besides heating water more rapidly, what else do these tankless wonders do?
Benefits of tankless hot water heaters include:
- Precision in amounts of water heated – Since the tankless heater’s coils can instantaneously heat water, you no longer have to heat entire, massive tanks.
- Dramatically reduced energy usage – A tankless heater does not have to be continuously heated, and only operates when you need it. This saves up to 34% more than traditional heaters’ energy usage.
- Compact size – Since the coils are much smaller, and because you do not need to fill large tanks of water at a time, a tankless unit is much more compact and easy to store in smaller spaces.
- Ensured safety – A traditional water heater needs to be turned off if you are leaving for extended periods of time in case of leaks and flooding. A tankless heater eliminates this issue and protects your property’s safety more efficiently.
Key Differences Between Traditional & Tankless Water Heaters
Traditional water heaters all come with a single large tank that is continuously filled with hot water. They tend to be extremely large, resembling those huge cylindrical containers your paranoid uncle used to store water for the Y2K apocalypse. The size of these heaters makes them unwieldy and cumbersome, so owners usually resort to storing these tanks in the basement or attic if they can afford the space. In order to heat water, the tanks must be constantly running, or the water will soon return to its normal temperature.
In contrast, tankless water heaters activate a small set of coils that immediately become hot when the unit is switched on. This heats the water passing over the coils instantaneously. The unit’s control easily sets the precise temperature that the water will need to be, determining how hot the coils will become.
One of the most important aspects of a tankless water heater is that it saves far more energy than traditional water heaters, and saving energy means saving money. However, you will not only be saving your wallet, but greatly contributing to reducing damage to the environment by getting tankless water heater installation and repair in Milpitas, Los Gatos, and the nearby areas.
