Instant Water Heaters

Instant Water Heaters

When you open a hot water tap or turn on the shower, your water heater responds by pumping hot water from its storage tank through plumbing pipes to reach you. In large homes, that hot water may have to travel a long way, and gallons of cool water may be wasted as homeowners wait for tap water to heat up. Instant water heaters may be a solution to that problem.

If your residential water heater is struggling to meet the demands of your busy household, contact us to find out more about instant water heaters.

How They Work 

Instant water heaters, also called on demand water heaters, are tankless systems. They heat cold water as it passes through an electric or gas-powered heating unit installed close to a tap or appliance, providing instant hot water for the user.

On demand water heaters can heat about 2 to 5 gallons of water per minute – not enough hot water to operate multiple showers and a dishwasher at the same time. But some homeowners find these tankless systems are perfect for powering dishwashers and washing machines, or sinks that are far from a home’s water heater tank.

Costs and Savings

Tankless water heaters cost more than traditional water heaters, so customers often want to know whether on demand heated water is worth the investment. Some features that may make instant water heaters appealing include:

  • LONGEVITY – With regular maintenance, most on demand water heaters will last at least 20 years, whereas traditional water heaters usually need to be replaced after 10 to 15 years.
  • REDUCED WATER CONSUMPTION – Gallons of water are wasted every time homeowners turn on taps and have to wait for hot water to reach them. Instant water heaters eliminate that wait time and significantly reduce water consumption in the home.
  • LOWER UTILITY COSTS – Homeowners who are replacing old water heaters may be able to go with a smaller, more affordable tank-style water heater to use in conjunction with tankless water heaters. A smaller tank means water heaters burn a lot less energy keeping water hot.
