Tankless Water Heaters in Decatur, AL
Most homes today are equipped with tank style water heaters, either electric or gas. Recently, some have exchanged the tank water heaters for seemingly more efficient tankless water heaters. Gas tankless water heaters use high-powered burners to quickly heat water as it runs through a heat exchanger, which eliminates the need for a water tank and can conserve energy. That heated water then quickly flows through the plumbing pipes in your Decatur, AL home to its final destination. One of the greatest benefits of a tankless water heater is you should never experience the chill of a cold shower in the middle of a refreshingly hot one. This style of water heater is known as an “on demand” heater because they don’t usually store hot water. But for all the hype surrounding these appliances there are some limitations and trade-offs to consider before you can really decide if the tankless hot water heater is for you. I have one in my house and properly used these appliances are absolutely great. Improperly used they are disappointing and expensive.
Tankless water heaters come in point-of-use and whole-house versions and there are electric tankless water heaters and natural gas or propane models. Some tankless units are sized to heat a cup of tea, others to provide enough hot water for 2 or more bathrooms. Also, the region of the country you live in has a lot to do with how much hot water a tankless water heater can produce.
