Want Hot Water On-Demand?
If you’re reading this, we’re guessing you may be a little frazzled with your water heater system. If you have a standard tank water heater, this scenario may be all too familiar: First you’re hot, then you’re cold, and then you’re angry. If you’re tired of having to take a polar dip when you’re the last one in line to shower at your home, then a tankless water heater may be your best option!
At Stuart’s Plumbing, we help homeowners in the Auburndale, Florida area find the right water heater for their needs. If you have a high-volume home (read: lots of kiddos) and a traditional water tank, then you’re probably running into the common issue most consumers have with this type of system: once the heated water is used up, it’s gone. Which means it will run cold, until your water heater has had a chance to heat up a new tankful.
Tankless water heaters work by heating water only when you turn the hot water tap on. Using either gas or electricity to heat the water directly through the pipes that it is traveling through, tankless water heaters heat water more quickly than standard tank models. While they are more expensive to purchase, their lifespan is nearly double that of standard water heaters. And when combined with the energy bill savings, it’s a sound investment.
Tankless water heaters are not only more energy efficient for the home, they only work when you want them to by heating up the water when you need it. That means you’ll always have hot water, on-demand.
