Let’s Talk Tankless

If you’re familiar with tankless technology, then you probably already know some of the unique benefits they offer. But for some of our other customers, or newcomers who have never even heard of a tankless water heater, this blog is for you!

A tankless water heater installation in Puyallup, WA can make a huge difference in the way you think of hot water. Instead of a tank that sits there in your basement or crawlspace, the tankless system heats the water as it enters your home. These systems are quick, efficient, and save you money on a month-to-month basis. But importantly, they’re not for everyone.

So, as your local professional team of plumbers, let’s talk about tankless systems. We’ll cover all the basics and make sure that you know what you’re getting into if you decide to install this system.

How a Tankless System Works

Tankless water heaters are powerful systems that don’t rely on a storage tank. Conventionally, old water heaters relied on a storage tank to hold the hot water. This tank would often leak heat that would be wasted over time, and they could corrode in just 8-12 years.

A tankless system, or “on-demand” water heater, only heats the water as it enters your home. It doesn’t suffer from standby heat loss or corrosion problems as frequently because it has much less contact with the water in your home.

Why Go Tankless?

Here are a few reasons why you might want to go with a tankless water heater system instead of a conventional tank water heater.

Efficiency Improvements

A tankless water heater is incredibly efficient because it only heats water when you request it. This means you don’t have to worry about a large tank keeping water warm with the energy that you pay for. Efficiency is key for long-term savings!

Low Maintenance Costs

Since a tankless water heater doesn’t have as much contact with water as a tank system does, it doesn’t corrode as intensely or as quickly as a storage tank water heater does. This is a big deal because it means that components will last longer and require fewer repairs throughout the system’s lifespan.

Save Room

Have you been frustrated in the past by seeing a bulky hot water tank take up a significant amount of space? Especially if you’ve got a large home with multiple bathrooms, those large tanks can get bigger and take up an entire room’s worth of space.

A tankless water heater saves room because it’s basically a small machine that mounts on the wall of your basement. Wave those storage tanks goodbye and save some room by upgrading!

Unlimited Hot Water

With a tankless water heating system, you practically never run out of hot water as you would with a tank system. So, take those long showers, those hot baths on your day off, or use hot water to wash dishes for as long as you like.
