Tankless Water Heaters Provide Unique Benefits to St. Louis Property Owners
Every morning, your family relies on its water heater in order to start the day in the most comfortable fashion. Your residential water heater provides you with immense benefits that are often taken for granted.
For commercial properties, water heaters are essential to ensure that your business operates at peak performance. If your business relies on hot water, it is important to be aware of all of the ways to acquire the hot water that you need.
One unique way to supply hot water to your St. Louis residential or commercial property is the tankless water heater. Everyone is familiar with the traditional tank system. These systems are highly functional, but because of a unique design, tankless water heaters provide unique benefits.
The professional plumbers at SC Hosack Plumbing and Excavation have provided this short summary of the differences between traditional water heaters and tankless water heating systems. Their skill team can help you install either type of water heater in your St. Louis property customized to fit your unique needs. They can also maintain and repair both tankless water heaters and traditional systems. St. Louis property owners should be aware of the following differences to ensure that they have the best systems possible.
Differences Between Water Heaters
Traditional water heaters have a large tank that can hold up to 80 gallons of water. This large tank of water is then held at a constant temperature throughout the day. This continuously warmed water is ready whenever you need hot water. Whenever all of this water is used, the entire tank must be refilled and reheated.
In contracts, tankless water heaters do not store water in the system. Instead, they force water through a capillary system and apply energy to heat the water only when hot water is needed. As such, there is not a constant expenditure of energy.
Tankless Water Heater Benefits
Because tankless water heaters do not rely on a large amount of stored water, they have the ability of provide hot water on demand at all times. Whenever a traditional system runs out of warm water, the entire tank must be refilled and reheated. This could result in your St. Louis property not having hot water from anywhere between 15 minutes and an hour. Tankless water heaters provide an endless supply of hot water.
The unique design of tankless water heaters also results in another benefit. Because tankless water heaters heat water on demand, there is no wasted energy. Traditional systems have to constantly expend energy throughout the day in order to keep water in the tank warm and ready. This means energy is used even when you do not need hot water at your St. Louis property.
