Do Tankless water Heaters Run Out of Water?
Unlike traditional water heaters, tankless water heaters do not rely on a supply of water. Tankless units are designed to heat water as it passes through the heater. This means there is instant and unlimited amounts of hot water. It is possible, however, to have a lack of hot water if too many appliances or fixtures are trying to use hot water at the same time.
The Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters
As their name suggests, tankless water heaters don’t have a tank. This offers a great advantage over conventional models which cycle on and off throughout the day to keep water heated in large storage tanks. In contrast, tankless systems begin heating water when you turn on the faucet. Not only does this prevent energy waste but also you won’t need to wait for water to heat up between uses.
Available in gas and electric, tankless water heaters have several benefits, including:
- Instant hot water
- Unlimited supply of hot water
- Longer life expectancy
- Lower utility bills
- Space savings
Tankless Water Heater Installation
A tankless water heater installation has certain requirements that must be followed to ensure optimal performance and longevity. For example, since they have high-powered burners, they need to be installed in a well-vented space. The plumbers at McKeown Plumbing have extensive knowledge of these systems and can help ensure your tankless water heater installation is done safely and correctly.
How Long Will a Tankless Water Heater Last?
It is a priority for many homeowners to stay on top of the condition of their home's water heater as well as their other appliances. It's important to know how long a water heater is going to last when installing a new one. Unlike traditional tank water heaters, a tankless water heater will much longer. On average, traditional water heaters generally need to be replaced after 8-12 years while tankless water heaters will last up to 20 years before needing to be replaced. It is important to have regular maintenance performed on your water heater to ensure it will last the full 20+ years.
Maintaining Your Tankless Water Heater
Just like traditional water heaters, tankless systems require routine maintenance to continue operating efficiently and effectively. When you rely on McKeown Plumbing, we can provide maintenance services that prevent costly repairs and extend your system’s lifespan. While a tune-up once a year is sufficient for many units, two annual service appointments may be required if you live in an area that has hard water or you prefer to keep your temperature settings very high.
