An on-demand type of water heater eliminates the production of standby energy loss, for it only provides hot water on an as needed basis. Instantaneous water heaters can be up to 35% more energy efficient than the traditional storage tank. Without the need for a hot water tank it also allows for new storage in the space the old gas or electric water heater occupied. Tankless water heaters provide about 2-5 gallons of hot water per minute. There are electric and gas tankless water heaters along with a size variation, so it’s imperative to choose the right size for your home. Depending on the amount of water used in your home and the need for simultaneous hot water, having two tankless water heaters that run parallel may be the best option for your home. Proper installation of a tankless water heater depends of several factors, such as climate, fuel type, safety issues when dealing with gas-fired water heaters and building code requirements. Don’t worry, our service professionals at Delcor can assist you with recommending the best size for your home and installation of the tankless water heater!
