Homeowners today have a lot of choices to make when investing in new appliances. From toaster ovens to washing machines, modern technology has had an impact on everything. One of the most important appliances in any home, of course, is the water heater, which makes it possible to hop into a hot shower in the morning, to wash your dishes effectively, and to get your linens clean. Because you use your water heater so much each and every day, it is truly vital that you take the time necessary to ensure that you choose the right water heater in Everett, WA for your needs. For many, this means investing in a tankless water heater. Contact G & S Heating Cooling & Electric if you think that a tankless water heater is right for you.
Not everyone lives in a home boasting ample storage space. In such homes, the tankless water heater can be a huge benefit. Tankless water heaters, of course, do not store hot water in a storage tank, instead only heating water as it is needed, in an on-demand fashion. This means that tankless water heaters are quite compact, and that they can be installed even in relatively tight spaces.
Because tankless water heaters do not make use of a storage tank, the risk of standby energy loss is eliminated. Standby energy loss occurs when heat from the water within a storage tank transfers to the air surrounding that tank. While modern tanks are efficient enough so as to minimize this heat transfer, they are not able to eradicate it in the way that forgoing the use of a tank entirely can.
Tankless water heaters are much more expensive than tank models. However, they also last a lot longer, often more than 20 years. Over that amount of time, the energy savings that you’ll enjoy with the use of a tankless water heater can help to offset the initial cost of the system.
