Tankless Water Heaters in Sacramento, CA
The image of a water heater is fixed in most people’s minds as a large tank of water connected to an energy source. This is a water heater model known as a storage tank water heater, and it’s found in more U.S. homes than any other kind of water heater. Coming up on its heels is the tankless water heater. Although tankless systems aren’t “new,” it wasn’t until a few decades ago they became practical challengers to the supremacy of the tank water heater. Today, a tankless water heater offers advantages that make them attractive to buyers. Perhaps a tankless system is what your house needs. Or you may already be benefiting from a tankless water heater.
No matter your situation when it comes to a tankless system, Crystal Blue Plumbing, Heating & Air is the contractor to rely on for service in Sacramento, CA. Our motto is “Customer Service the Way It Used to Be!” We strive every day to live up to the highest standard of quality so our customers become customers for life.
How Does a Water Heater Work without a Tank?
Because the tank water heater is so ubiquitous, people often find it difficult to imagine how a water heater could function without a tank. But it isn’t a complex process. What a tankless water heater does is run water in the hot water lines through a gas–fired or electric–powered heat exchanger.
When a tap comes on in the house to make a request for hot water, the movement of the water activates the heat exchanger to heat up the water. In other words, a tankless system heats up the water as it is needed without requiring storing it. (For this reason, tankless water heaters are sometimes called "on–demand" water heaters.)
Reasons to Consider a Tankless Water Heater Installation
If you have a tank water heater that’s over the hill and ready for replacement, you may wish to consider a tankless water heater installation. There are excellent advantages of making the change to tankless, although we advise you work with professional installers before making the choice.
- Energy savings: A tank water heater must work regularly—even when there’s no demand for hot water in the house—because of standing heat loss from the tank. A tankless system only needs to use energy when there’s a request for hot water, and that means it uses much less energy overall.
- Unlimited hot water: There isn’t a supply of hot water that can be depleted in a tankless system, so it will never run out of hot water. (It can, however, be overwhelmed if multiple taps are on. You may need more than one tankless water heater if you have a large household.)
- Longevity: A tankless system undergoes less stress than a standard tank water heater, which translates to a longer service life.
