Should I Replace My Water Heater with a Tankless Model?

Friday, June 15th, 2018 by Michele Alicky

Many of us grew up with a tank water heater in our homes, and for many homeowners, water heater technology stops there. The truth of the matter, though, is that there are many different options to consider when it comes to the ways in which you may choose to heat water for use throughout your home. If you are interested in scheduling a water heater replacement for any reason, you may want to give some serious thought to using a tankless water heater. Call Pelletier Mechanical Services, LLC today at (860) 283-0316 if you have any questions regarding these systems, or how it is that they operate.

Eliminate Standby Energy Loss

Modern tank water heaters are more efficient than ever before, and modern storage tanks do a great job of keeping heat in your water, where it belongs. However, there is no way in which you can expect any storage tank to completely eliminate standby energy loss, even if you add things like insulating jackets to it. Standby energy loss is a phenomenon in which heat transfers out of the water in the tank, through the tank, and into the air surrounding it, which is inherently cooler and follows the rule of natural heat transfer, with heat seeking out cooler environments. When you eliminate the tank from the equation, though, it is actually possible to eliminate the risk of standby energy loss, as well. A tankless system works in an on-demand fashion, heating only the water that you need, as you need it, so you don’t have to worry about this issue.

Save Space in Your Home

While energy efficiency is generally the main reason that people choose to use tankless water heaters, there are others that are further drawn in simply by the allure of using such a compact system. Without the tank to consider, tankless water heaters can simply be installed on a wall, even in very tight places, such as a closet. This can help to free up space in those homes with little to spare.
