Sometimes a cold shower can be refreshing in the summer, but don’t forget how bad they can be in the winter. It’s hard enough getting out of your warm bed; it’s only going to make it harder if you’re fourth in line for the shower, and your kids used up all the hot water. You shouldn’t have to worry about that anymore, and with Special Gas Services, you won’t. Upgrading your system to a tankless water heater could mean the end of cold showers! A standard water heater has a tank that is filled with water, which is pre-heated before you use it. The heating process can take a significant amount of time, so if you use all your hot water in a short time period, you’re stuck without hot water until it’s ready again. Tankless systems can sometimes be referred to as instantaneous water heaters. They use a heat exchanger to rapidly prepare any hot water you need allowing for a cleaner, more efficient and more consistent flow of hot water. Here is a clear breakdown of why you’ll see improvements in each category: They are cleaner Water that sits in the tank for an extended period of time can accumulate rust and scale, while also lowering the quality of water. Although these systems are prepared to hold water, not having a tank can mean less possible repairs. Your system can last up to two times longer than a tank system. They are more efficient. The storage of water over a long period of time can use a lot of unnecessary energy. There can be times when you’re not using your hot water for an extended period of time, and for that reason, a tankless system won’t use any energy. Tank systems, on the other hand, have to continue to re-heat water even if you haven’t used any. The water sitting in the tank will eventually cool down and the system needs to keep it warm for whenever you decide to use it. That’s why tankless systems are called instantaneous – the water heats on-demand, whenever you need it. They provide consistent heat This is the benefit you’ve been waiting for: on-demand hot water. Tankless water heaters are able to offer continuous hot water to one heating source at all times. So even if you take four or nine showers in a row, it will still be hot by the last one. If you have a tendency to run several hot-water appliances at once, some tankless systems can struggle with the load. Consult a Special Gas professional and they can walk you through your options.
