Radiant Plumbing Debunks Tankless Water Heater Myths
Myth #1: A tankless water heater will heat water the water in my home to unsafe temperatures.
Truth: Tankless water heaters will not heat the water in your home to unsafe temperatures.
- Tankless systems come with thermostats that are specifically designed to prevent the water from overheating and scalding. In addition, they also offer a personalized thermostat that you can use to set the temperature of the water to exactly what you desire.
Myth #2: Those tankless water heating systems are plain, old inefficient
Truth: Tankless water heating systems are more efficient than traditional systems.
- It’s true. Tankless water heaters leave less of a carbon footprint than traditional tanks, as they use clean energy at minimal use. They also cost less to operate, as they aren’t heating water 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Myth #3: Tankless water heaters won’t supply my family with enough hot water.
Truth: Tankless systems will provide your family with hot water whenever you need it.
- They may not have a storage tank, but that doesn’t mean they run out of water. Water passes over a heating element before it reaches an outlet, so water is always hot when you turn on the tap.
Myth #4: Tankless water heaters will cost way too much to operate
Truth: You will actually save money by switching to a tankless water heater.
- Even though the initial cost is more money, you will end up saving about 20% on your energy bills with a tankless system. Because you aren’t paying to heat water all the time, you don’t have to pay as much each month.
