Thinking About Choosing a Tankless Water Heater?
More and more Australians are switching to a tankless water heater every day. Also called a continuous flow hot water system, this water heater is an innovation from the traditional hot water systems that use tanks to store the heated water. While it has been available in the market, it wasn’t until the 1970s that hot water system companies developed truly efficient hot water system units. Since then, it has become a preferred water heater for many households and commercial areas.
To know more about tankless or continuous flow hot water systems, we have listed three reasons people choose this type of water heater.
1. Tankless Water Heaters Heat Fast
The tankless hot water systems would not be called continuous flow hot water systems for nothing. The first advantage of having a tankless water heater is that you don’t have to wait for very long to warm up the water being supplied to your plumbing systems. It will instantly warm up the water to the set temperature when the system is on. Older units have limited temperature options, but newer ones have more precise temperature controls for a better and safer experience. Once the hot water is running, it provides a continuous supply of hot water until you turn the tap off. This means you never run out of hot water!
2. Cost-effective and Operating efficiency
Tankless hot water heater upfront costs are generally higher than storage hot water systems. The reason for this is that tankless water heater installation is more complicated than storage water heaters. But in the long run, its higher life expectancy and low maintenance provide you with cost savings.
In addition, continuous flow hot water systems have less water wastage and use less gas or electricity than tanked hot water systems. It’s because part of the maintenance of traditional hot water systems is draining the tank to ensure its cleanliness and safety. And traditional hot water systems reheat the water inside the tank throughout the day and night, thus the higher electricity or gas bill.
3. Readily Available
Tankless hot water systems are becoming more and more available in the market these days. Well-known brands like Rinnai, Rheem and Bosch are being innovative and regularly release brand new units from time to time. This way, you have plenty of options to choose from. You may choose from the basic tankless hot water system to a more technologically advanced one. Lastly, they can also be hooked up to a solar energy source which reduces your running costs even further. These varying options can help you choose one unit that best suits you and your lifestyle.
