Tankless or On-Demand Water Heaters
Are you tired of waiting for the hot water to get to your sink? Do you hate seeing all that water wasted running down the drain waiting for hot water? Maybe it’s time to consider a tankless water heater for your home. Tankless or water-on-demand heaters save energy costs because they heat only the water at the source and only the amount that is in demand.
Best Plumbing can help you choose the on-demand water heater that is right for your home. On-demand water heaters can be fueled by:
- Natural Gas
Best Plumbing can calculate the highest hot water demand in your home based on typical flow rates of fixtures (faucets, shower heads, etc.), the configuration of your plumbing, and how your family uses water in your home. Tankless water heaters are designed to produce a specific range (in degrees) of heated water to meet a specific flow rate (in gallons per minute). Best Plumbing will be able to offer you the perfect tankless water heater system to meet the needs of your family.
Typical Flow Rates of home fixtures in gallons per minute (gpm):
- Dishwasher 1 – 3gpm
- Laundry 2.5 – 3gpm
- Kitchen Sink 1 – 1.5gpm
- Shower 1.5 – 3gpm
- Bath 2 – 4gpm
There are several types of tankless water heater systems available to meet your hot water requirements:
- Single point of use – on-demand water heater to service one fixture
- Dual point of use – on-demand water heater to service two sources in close proximity
- Thermostatically controlled – for long pipe runs or where temperature control is crucial
- High flow rate areas – for condos, apartments, large bathrooms, etc.
- Whole house indoor or outdoor system – where multiple sources of use are needed
If you are thinking about saving energy costs or it’s simply time to replace a worn out tank water heater, give Best Plumbing a call and find out if a tankless water heater is right for you.
