Decatur tankless water heaters, demand-type water heaters, and instantaneous water heaters are all names for the same type of water heater. Unlike the conventional storage-tank water heater seen in most homes, these units do not continuously heat a tank of water. By contrast, tankless water heaters are tankless, heating water directly without a storage tank. Tankless water heaters can be electric or gas. If all residential water heaters sold in the U.S. were ENERGY STAR certified, the energy cost savings would grow to nearly $13.4 billion (about $41 per person in the US) annually, preventing more than 155 billion pounds of greenhouse gas emissions—equal to the emissions from nearly 15 million vehicles, every year!
Anthony Wimpey Plumbing Wants To Hear From You
How Do Decatur Tankless Water Heaters Work?
When you use all the hot water stored in a tank water heater, you must wait for an extended period as the tank refills and heats added water before you have more hot water. This is not necessary with tankless models. There is no long waiting period. When you turn on a hot water tap, cold water flows through your plumbing into the water heater. Here, the tankless unit heats the water with a gas burner or an electric element. Hot water flows from the unit to your tap in about 15 seconds. As a result, Decatur tankless water heaters deliver a constant supply of hot water.
How Are Decatur Tankless Water Heaters Sized?
Tankless water heater size is relative to the maximum temperature rise possible at a given flow rate. A typical gas-fired Decatur tankless water heater will have a 70ºF (39ºC) water temperature rise at a flow rate of 5 gallons per minute—electric-powered tankless water heaters have a slower flow rate of 2 gallons per minute. To find the right size tankless water heater for your household,
Anthony Wimpey Plumbing considers three factors: 1. The temperature of the water as it enters the water heater 2. Your peak demand for hot water in gallons per minute (GPM) 3. The Uniform Energy Factor or (UEF) value found in the specifications. The United States Department of Energy performs tests to determine the Uniform Energy Factor or (UEF), the newest measure of water heater efficiency. A higher UEF value indicates a more efficient unit.
Energy efficiency is a hallmark of the tankless water heater. And certainly, one of the reasons homeowners love about them. Now, advanced Decatur tankless water heaters surpass the unbelievable energy efficiency of first-generation tankless units. The higher efficiency models are condensing gas tankless water heaters. They feature an added heat exchanger that harnesses the heat once lost to exhaust.
Condensing gas on-demand water heaters extract 96% of available heat- that is 17% better than non-condensing units. Also, according to Energy.gov, if you use 41 gallons or less of hot water daily, a tankless water heater can be 24% to 34% more energy efficient than a conventional storage-tank water heater.
Smart Decatur tankless water heaters support six main advantages. With this technology, you can control water temperature, monitor energy use, water consumption, system functionality, and equipment condition from your favorite device. Moreover, digital connectivity lets you forward system performance details to Anthony Wimpey Plumbing for most rapid maintenance and service.
Decatur tankless water heater help you save energy, money, and the planet; but that is not all. These water heaters save space, too. Tankless water heaters can be up to 96% smaller than a storage-tank unit and require 100% less floor space. Because it is small, it fits in tucked-away spaces.
For example, install tankless units under stairs, in closets, attics, and pantries. In addition to under sinks, inside cabinets, in utility rooms and garages. Shockingly, Decatur tankless water heater installation is not limited to the indoors. Place one outdoors for the ultimate space-saver.
How Are Decatur Tankless Water Heaters Environmentally Friendly?
Conserve energy with a high efficiency tankless water heater that uses up to 40% less energy than a standard-tank water heater. Tankless water heaters also reduce carbon emissions. An average of 7.3 million water heaters end up in U.S. landfills annually.
Because tankless water heaters last twice as long as conventional storage-tank water heaters and are much smaller in size they significantly reduce the burden on our landfills. In addition, many manufacturers use recyclable components and replacement parts to further reductions landfill waste.
If all residential gas tankless water heaters sold in the United States were ENERGY STAR certified, the energy cost savings would grow to $215 million (about twice the cost of a high end private jet) each year, and nearly 1.8 billion pounds of annual greenhouse gas emissions would be prevented, equivalent to the emissions from 160 thousand vehicles.
