Tankless Water Heaters

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.

We install high quality tankless water heaters from Ruud and Navien, and we’re also skilled in repairs and maintenance. When you’re looking for tankless water heater service in Baxter, IA or elsewhere in the “golden circle” between Ames, Des Moines, Newton, and Marshalltown, contact Baxter Comfort Solutions. “Helping You Save by Going Green.”

What Makes a Tankless Water Heater Different?

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.

Benefits of a Tankless Water Heater Installation

A tankless water heater costs more to install than a conventional tank system, but the many benefits often outweigh this:

  • Lower energy consumption: Because a tankless water heater only uses energy when there’s a call for hot water, it consumes less power than a storage tank system. This can add up to tremendous energy savings over the system’s lifetime.
  • Longer service life: Speaking of the system’s lifetime, the average tankless water heater can last 5 to 10 years longer than a tank model.
  • Unlimited hot water: Since water is only heated as it is needed, a tankless system won’t run out of hot water. This is a huge benefit for large households that can run out of hot water in the morning.
  • Small size: Tankless water heaters are small compared to conventional water heaters, and some can even be mounted on the wall.
