How do Tankless Water Heater work?

Tankless water heaters, also known as demand-type or instantaneous water heaters, provide hot water only as it is needed. They don't produce the standby energy losses associated with storage water heaters, which can save you money over time. Tankless water heaters heat water directly without the use of a storage tank. When a hot water tap is turned on, cold water travels through a pipe into the unit. Either a gas burner or an electric element heats the water. As a result, tankless water heaters deliver a constant supply of hot water. You don't need to wait for a storage tank to fill up with enough hot water.
Our professional technicians will help you decide what type and size of water heater is best for your home and family needs. Contact Nolasco Plumbing today to learn more about tankless hot water heaters or to receive a FREE estimate on hot water heater installation, replacement, or upgrade!

Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters

Energy Efficiency
While a traditional tank water heater heats water continuously, tankless water heaters heat only as much water as needed, when it is needed. By heating water on demand, tankless units can reduce energy use by 24 to 34 percent compared to traditional water heater tanks.
Lower Utility Bills
Since tankless water heaters use less energy, they can also lower your utility bills. ENERGY STAR® estimates that the average household can save hundreds of dollars every year by converting to a tankless unit.

These water heaters can conserve almost 27 to 50 percent more energy than traditional tank models and simultaneously service every high-demand point in your home, such as the bathroom, kitchen and laundry room.
Extended Life Span
On average, tankless water heaters last five to 10 years longer than tank water heaters. With proper maintenance, a tankless water heater can offer up to 20 years of lasting use.
Endless Hot Water
Households using a traditional tank water heater may run out of hot water because the home's entire supply is stored in the tank. On the other hand, the heating elements in tankless units heat water just when it is needed, for as long as required, offering continuous hot water.
Save Space
Most traditional tanks hold between 40 to 60 gallons of water and usually measure about 60 inches tall and 24 inches wide. Since tankless water heaters are much smaller, they take up far less space in your home. Their standard size is 28 inches tall by 20 inches wide and 10 inches deep.
Less Maintenance
Water heater tanks generally require annual maintenance, and in some regions, they need to be serviced every six months. Alternatively, tankless water heaters require very little upkeep. Depending on the quality of your water supply, they can sustain full function for four to five years without maintenance.

If you live in an area with hard water, an annual cleaning is still recommended to remove mineral buildup near the heating element. This standard maintenance is easy to perform: use a vinegar solution to flush the unit for 60 minutes and remove any lingering sediment.

Preventive Maintenance

Clean the cold-water inlet filter. (Refer to "Unit Draining and Filter Cleaning" on this page.)
Be sure that all openings for combustion and ventilation air are not blocked.
The venting system should be checked annually for any leaks, corrosion, blockages, or damage.
The burner should be checked annually for dust, lint, grease, or dirt.
If the relief valve discharges periodically, it may be due to thermal expansion in a closed water supply system. Contact the water supplier or local plumbing inspector on how to correct this situation.
Visually check the burner flames (see below) through the burner window in the burner assembly located at the middle of the water heater. The manufacturer recommends having the unit checked once a year or as necessary by a licensed technician. If repairs are needed, any repairs should be done by a licensed technician.

What to expect from your water heater?

  • A standard water heater should last you about 10+ years. Tankless water heaters usually have a functional expectancy up to 20 years. Water softeners can shorten the life span of your water heater, but regularly servicing it can prolong it.
How efficient is it?
