Navien Trenchless On-Demand Water Heaters

The Benefits Of Tankless On-demand Water Heaters

Big B's Plumbing - Your Plumber for Life!

Hot water on demand? Well, sign me up! We want it now, and that includes hot water. Most of us can’t even wait a second for a page to load on our computers or smartphones. These water heaters are commonly known as tankless, on-demand, continuous flow, and instant flow water heaters. Because of all their benefits, tankless technology is at the forefront of all water heater manufacturers such as A.O. Smith, Bradford White, Rheem, Rudd, and many others. 

Tankless water heaters could probably be considered a luxury when compared to storage tank heaters. However, you could make up the extra cost of purchasing one over time. In fact, experts say that they pay for themselves over the heater’s life. The fact is, they cost about three to four times more than that of a storage tank heater.

An Instantaneous Water Heater Can Save You Money

It’s a fact that heating hot water is the second-largest pull of energy behind cooling and heating in our homes. A plumbing system that performs at a high level will save the homeowner money in the short and long run. An on-demand water heater is a perfect fit because it offers on-demand water, which means no water waste and as much as 34% better energy savings over storage tank heaters. 

If you’re ready to make a purchase, consider purchasing an on-demand water heater with the WaterSense label. WaterSense is a program put on by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to help consumers make much of the guesswork and research out of purchasing. Here is what you can expect from the WaterSense program:

  • The product will work as well or outperform the less efficient competitors.
  • They’re 20% or more efficient than other on-demand water heaters.
  • Realize measurable water savings on your water bill.
  • Product certifications obtained through an independent third-party

Consider all the benefits of a tankless on-demand water heater.

Consider all the benefits of a tankless on-demand water heater

Efficient Usage Of Energy

While traditional storage tank water heater continuously heats water, while on the other hand tankless on-demand heaters only heat the amount of water required and only when you need it. When heating water on demand, tankless water heaters can save between 24 and 34% on energy costs when compared to the traditional storage tank water heaters.

Utility Bills Reduced

Because tankless on-demand water heaters consume less power, they can also help you save money on your utility bills. According to ENERGY STAR®, a typical household could save hundreds of dollars per year by switching to a tankless unit.

These heaters can save up to 50% or more in energy cost over traditional tank heaters, and they will simultaneously service all of your home’s high-demand areas, including the kitchen, bathroom, and laundry room.

Prolonged Life Expectancy

Tankless on-demand water heaters typically last five to ten years longer than traditional water heaters. A tankless on-demand water heater has a life expectancy of up to 20 years with proper maintenance.

Infinite Hot Water

Households that use a traditional storage tank water heater could run out of hot water since the tank stores the entire supply. In contrast, the tankless units’ heating elements heat water only when required, providing continuous hot water.

Save On Space 

The majority of conventional storage tanks hold 40 to 60 gallons of hot water and are typically 60 inches high and 24 inches wide. Because tankless on-demand water heaters are significantly smaller, they take up considerably less space in your garage. Their standard dimensions are 28 in. tall by 20 in. wide by 10 in. deep.

Reduced Maintenance

Water heater tanks require routine maintenance on an annual basis, and in some geographic areas, they must get serviced every six months. In comparison, tankless on-demand water heaters require very little maintenance. They can operate at full capacity for four to five years with little maintenance, but much will depend on the water quality. 

California is known for hard water, so it’s still recommended to clean the heating element annually to remove mineral buildup. This routine maintenance is simple to perform: flush the unit for 60 minutes with a vinegar solution to remove any remaining sediment.

Don’t Make An Impulsive tankless on-line Water Heater Purchase

The fact is, we are creatures of habit. If our water heater goes down, most of us don’t even give it any thought. Instead, we head out to your local Home Depot, Lowes, or just call a plumber, never taking the time to research your options. At Big B’s Plumbing, we have our product specialist that can take the time to discuss your options so that you have no regrets when selecting the right water heater. That includes both storage tank heaters, as well as an instantaneous water heater.

What People Are Saying...

I called Big B's Plumbing because I the hot water would not turn off in our master bathroom. I tried to turn the valve off under the sink and it broke off, so I had to shut off the main water to the house. It was noticeable the valves were original to the home. When I called, the rep stated that I would be informed about the service tech and their experience along with services offered "On The Spot". I was on a bit of a time crunch...

Found them on Google and they had good quality reviews. Made the call and set up the appointment for same day. Dispatch called me a few hours later to confirm our appointment and let me know that the technician Mathew was on the way. This was supposed to be an easy job once Mathew arrived. But it turned out to be so much more than that. Without hesitation or a sour look on his face, he dove deep into his van...
