How Tankless Water Heaters Work

The standard water heater, also called a storage tank water heater, has a simple operation to understand. A larger tank stores a supply of water, which gas jets heat until it reaches the desired temperature for use. When a water tap turns on in the house, a pump moves the hot water from the tank to the tap. The water heater must run regularly to keep its water supply heated, both because of the depletion of water as its used and because of standby heat loss (i.e. heat escaping through the tank walls).

This conventional method of water heating has worked for households for decades, but it’s no longer the only method of supplying hot water for residential needs. The tankless water heater is now a popular alternate choice. This type of water heater boasts several advantages for the right household. But how exactly does a water heater with no tank even work? We’ll get into that below.

Signs Your Tankless Water Heater System Needs Repairs

A tankless water heater is an excellent addition to many homes. Unlike storage tank water heaters—the kind found in the majority of homes—tankless systems don’t need to run regularly to keep a supply of water heated. This helps them save energy, increase their service lives, and take up less space. Because tankless water heaters heat water as needed, they won’t run out of hot water as long as they were accurately sized and installed. 

Tankless water heaters are precision devices, so they can fall prey to a number of malfunctions, some of which are specific to them. Fast action to have water heater repair in Parksville, BC will keep your tankless system running the way you want it to.

You’ve been thinking about it. We know you have, because you got to this blog post and you are reading these words right now. But is this the moment? Is this when you make the switch you’ve planned on for years: getting rid of that old standard storage tank water heater and replacing it with a tankless water heater?

A good question, and we can help with the answer. But to get a full professional answer about installing a tankless water heater in Courtenay, BC, you’ll need to make an appointment with our experts. We can analyze your current situation and see what the best way forward is.

Is Your Current Water Heater Truly Finished?

Before you choose to have a new water heater of any type installed, you need to be certain you aren’t throwing away the current water heater too early. Most storage water heaters can last for more than 15 years, although past 20 years is pushing it—that’s a good time for a replacement.

Our technicians can help find out if repairs can keep it going, but they’ll also tell you when repairs are throwing money away that you could spend on a new system.

What About the Tankless Water Heater Appeals to You?

We’re not trying to drive you away from a tankless water heater, not at all! In fact, there are probably some benefits to using a tankless system that you don’t know about. So, think about why you’re eager to have this type of water heater in your home. Is it …

  • The unlimited hot water supply? This is a huge one for people—a tankless hot water heater can’t run out of its supply of hot water because it doesn’t have one. It always heats up more. The system can be overwhelmed if multiple taps are on at one time, however, so you need to know how your household uses water.
  • The energy savings? A tankless water heater is more expensive to purchase than a storage tank water heater, but the amount of money it saves in energy reduction will pay you back in a few years.
  • The small size? Say goodbye to that space-consuming tank—tankless water heaters can be small enough to be installed onto a wall.
  • The longevity? With less energy consumed and work done, a tankless water heater ages slower than a standard water heater. You’ll have many more years to enjoy those energy savings and other benefits.
