It’s the holidays. Your house is packed with company and everybody needs to take a shower. By the time it’s your turn, there’s no more hot water. Could a tankless water heater be the solution to this all-too-familiar situation?
Tank Storage Water Heaters VS Tankless Water Heaters
Since the advent of indoor plumbing, a hot water heater has been as common as any other household system. It’s been in use for generations. A traditional hot water heater requires a full tank (between 40 and 50 gallons, usually) to be constantly heated. That can be expensive! But with new electric and mechanical advances, tankless water heaters are becoming more and more popular. Not only are they efficient in keeping your costs down, by saving both water and electricity (saving up to 50% over a traditional tank), they also work! If you’re hesitant about investing in a tankless water heater, more information should help. In today’s blog, we’ll explain how tankless water heaters work and how The Bosworth Company can save you money by installing one for you!
How Tankless Water Heaters Work
Each time you turn on a faucet, a sensor detects the water flow. That sensor sends a signal to the controls that it’s time to start heating up. The controls turn on the fan, which brings in air from the outside, opens the valve and lights the burner. The burner heats the exchanger which heats the water as it moves toward your faucet. Voila: you have hot water. Valves in the system automatically adjust the heat output if it detects that the temperature is dangerously hot, or not warm enough.
