A gas tankless water heater is an efficient appliance that uses a heat exchanger to heat water only when it’s needed, which can help you save up to 40% on your energy bill. When a tankless water heater senses the demand for water flow, such as turning on a faucet or a shower, the unit begins heating water as it passes through the heat exchanger. Because there is no need for a storage tank (which has a limited supply of hot water) you get an endless supply of hot water with a tankless water heater, even if you need if for multiple tasks—such as doing laundry, washing dishes or showering—at the same time. When water flow ceases, the tankless water heater shuts down, therefore using less energy by not incurring the “standby loss” associated with tanks.
The life expectancy of a Rinnai Tankless Hot Water Heater is up to 20 years. Actual performance will vary depending on water quality, usage rates, environmental conditions, and regular maintenance. API has extensive knowledge and experience with Rinnai’s high quality tankless water heaters. In fact, we have been installing and servicing them for over 10 years.
It is recommended that your water heater is replaced every 10 years. If your decade of use is almost up, you may want to consider switching to a tankless water heater with your next upgrade. In most cases, older water heater units are likely going to cost you too much in energy expenses every month. However, the technology introduced by tankless water heaters makes for less money that you’ll have to pay to heat your water on a monthly basis. Tankless water heaters are also optimal for households that continually feel as if there is never enough water. Depending on the size of your water heater tank, it may just take one or two showers in the morning before your water heater runs out of hot water. This can make it incredibly inconvenient for the other members of the family that have to get ready. But with a tankless water heater, you’ll have an endless supply of hot water for everyone to use.
Getting a tankless water heater is a much more expensive investment than your average traditional unit. However, it’s important to keep in mind that the price that you pay upfront will be offset with a much longer investment into a more reliable system. Not only will tankless water heaters save you money on your monthly energy costs, but you also will have a more reliable appliance that requires much less attention and maintenance than your traditional water heater system. Despite being more money up
front, a tankless water heater is often a worthy investment for the long run.
