How Does a Tankless Water Heater Work?
Instead of heating large volumes of water and constantly warming it in a storage tank, a tankless water heater heats it as needed. Not only does this save you money, but it provides almost endless hot water when the system is sized and installed correctly.
Tankless water heaters use powerful gas burners or electric heating elements to heat water as it passes through a heat exchanger. The process is entirely automated, with a sensor that detects water flow when the faucet is opened and a computer directing the burners or heating element to heat the water until the water heater achieves the desired temperature. This process requires large amounts of energy for a brief period but significantly less than conventional water heaters. This higher initial energy may require some homes in the DC area to upgrade their gas or electrical service when installing a tankless water heater.
Tankless Water Heater Installation & Replacement in Northern VA & Washington, DC
Tankless water heaters can last up to 25 years or longer with proper care. If you have an older model that is starting to have problems, needs frequent repairs, or has a heat exchanger on the verge of failure, it may be time to consider a tankless water heater replacement. Our team at United Air Temp can help. We offer water heater replacements throughout the DC area, and we can ensure you have the best model to fit your needs.
Gas Tankless Water Heaters
Gas tankless water heaters can be powered by either natural gas or propane. Gas systems generate more hot water, making them ideal for larger families or running multiple taps for doing laundry, showering, washing dishes, and more simultaneously.
Because the system uses gas, it is imperative to have robust ventilation installed to prevent carbon monoxide buildup within the home. As with all gas-powered systems, staying up-to-date with maintenance requirements for safe and optimal function is imperative.
Electric Tankless Water Heaters
Electric tankless water heaters are powered by electricity. These systems typically cost less than gas systems to purchase and install.
They’re also the most eco-friendly water heating system available. However, they tend to cost more to operate because the cost of gas is usually lower than that of electricity.
Another key advantage to consider is that because they are electric, there is no need for ventilation, and they have minimal maintenance requirements.
