Tankless Water Heater FAQs
How does a tankless water heater work?
Cold water flows into a heat exchanger inside the water heater. Outside the heat exchanger, a natural gas or propane burner or an electric heating element is used to heat the water rapidly, and by the time the water exits the heat exchanger, it is hot. At HomeWorks, we recommend flushing the heat exchanger annually to remove sediment, corrosion, and mineral accumulations that may cause premature failure of the water heater. That service is included in “The Works Plan,” our convenient and cost-effective maintenance program.
Do tankless water heaters really never run out of hot water?
Tankless water heaters have a maximum flow rate — the maximum volume of hot water they can produce at a given time — and if that rate is exceeded, you could be left without hot water. If the tankless water heater is sized correctly for your home and installed properly, it can provide a nearly unlimited supply. To avoid performance problems and installation issues, choose a qualified plumber, such as our experts at HomeWorks, to install your tankless water heater.
Are tankless water heaters better than tank-style water heaters?
It depends on your hot water needs and preferences. For large families, a tank-style water heater may provide a larger supply of hot water without performance issues. For other families, a tankless water heater can offer significant long-term savings and virtually unlimited hot water, but the initial price will be higher. For help choosing the best water heater for your home in the Twin Cities area, talk to our experts at HomeWorks.
How much space do you need for a tankless water heater?
The space required depends on the model and its clearance requirements, but tankless water heaters require far less space than tank-style. Typically, a whole-home gas tankless water heater will be about 30 inches tall, 20 inches wide, and 12 inches deep, but some additional space will be required around the unit for the air intake and exhaust of gas or propane models. If you are replacing a tank-based model, there should be plenty of room.
Do tankless water heaters provide instant hot water?
Close, but not exactly. Because tankless water heaters use on-demand heating systems, it may take a few moments for hot water to reach your fixture, depending on how far away it is from the water heater. To reduce the amount of time it takes, consider installing a recalculation system or a point-of-use tankless water heater. During the initial installation, placing the water heater as close as possible to your primary fixtures will maximize its performance.
