When you think of a water heater, what image pops into your head? Probably a large cylindrical tank filled with water kept at a constant temperature. But this is only one type of water heater that’s available for a home. Another model that has become popular in Europe and now in the U.S. is the tankless water heater. A tankless water heater is a great way to cut down on energy bills while enjoying a number of other benefits, such as unlimited hot water.

The big difference between storage tank water heaters and tankless water heaters is how the water is heated. A tank water heater keeps the water stored and applies thermal energy to it (either through electric heat elements or natural gas burners) on a regular basis to maintain a high water temperature.
A tankless water heater sends thermal energy into water as it moves through the system, rather than storing it. Whenever the water starts to move, indicating a tap has come on somewhere demanding hot water, heat is sent into the water through a heat exchanger. The system only works as long as the water moves; when there is no longer a demand for hot water, the heat exchanger turns off.
A tankless water heater costs more to install than a conventional tank system, but the many benefits often outweigh this:
The smaller amount of stress placed on a tankless water heater means it won’t wear down as fast (one of the reasons for the extended lifespan), but that doesn’t mean it won’t need regular maintenance. Let our team take care of the regular inspections and tune–ups necessary to keep your water heater running in peak condition for years. And whenever you need prompt repair work, we’re also the team to call.

You rely on your water heater to cook, bathe, and clean. Though you don’t think about it much, you notice the second the hot water runs out which, for large families, is likely more often than you’d like. This often means the last person in the shower is stuck with nothing but cold water. Fortunately, tankless water heaters—also referred to as on-demand water heaters—offer a solution. If you’re interested in making the switch, or just need someone to repair your existing on-demand unit, give Baxter Comfort Solutions a call.
