You can’t do much around the house without a dependable water heater. So if the time has come to invest in a new one, you want to make sure you get one that will handle all of your hot water needs without costing you a ton in energy bills each month. While there are certainly plenty of energy efficient tank water heaters on the market today, a new option is taking the water heating world by storm and it saves homeowners quite a bit of money each month on their energy bills.
Tankless water heaters are becoming increasingly popular because of their compact size and low energy consumption. Tankless water heaters may not be the right choice for everyone, but with so many cost benefits it’s worth learning more about them before making a purchasing decision.

On–Demand Hot Water
You’re probably familiar with traditional water heaters that keep a reserve of hot water in a tank so that it’s ready to use when you need it. Tankless water heaters, on the other hand, don’t have a reserve supply. Instead, these units heat water as you need it so you don’t have to pay to keep a tank of water constantly hot and ready for use.
When you turn on the hot water tap, your tankless water heater heats water by passing it across a series of heating elements. That heated water then flows immediately to the faucet you are using. With this setup, not only do you avoid paying for hot water you’re not using; you don’t have to worry about running out of hot water in a capacity limited tank. A tankless water heater continues to heat water for as long as you need it.
Tankless Water Heater Sizing & Installation Options
Of course, tankless water heaters do have limitations. While they can provide a reliable supply of hot water to one faucet, they may not be able to keep up with the demand for hot water at several different locations at once. So when selecting your water heater, you must first determine how much hot water you’re likely to use at peak times in your household and choose a unit capable of meeting your needs.
If you have a particularly large home or you use a great deal of hot water, you may want to consider getting multiple smaller tankless water heaters installed at various locations around your house. That way, you’ll be sure to have hot water when you need it in every area of your home.
Regardless of what type or how many tankless water heaters you get, you’ll certainly be pleased with their compact design when it comes time for installation. Rather than a big, bulky water tank, tankless water heaters are usually flat and can fit almost anywhere without getting in the way.
Tankless Water Heater Maintenance & Repair
Of course, you’ll need a professional to handle your installation as well as any maintenance and repair services you might need in the future. Regardless of the type of tankless water heater service needed, Lovotti Air is the company more Greater Stockton and Modesto, California area homeowners turn to.
