May 20, 2015

AFTER - On-Demand Water Heater – Westborough, MAYour Beginning to Endless Hot Water Starts Today

A water heater is a a hot water heating system that is capable of providing an endless supply of hot water to multiple tap locations in your home. There is no holding tank required to keep ‘x’ amount of gallons of water hot, increasing energy efficiency. This ‘on-demand’ way of heating water has several major benefits, which are all outlined below.

Continuous Hot Water

Tankless water heaters work differently than tank-style water heaters. A tankless water heater doesn’t store a set amount of heated water, but instead has a gas powered heat exchanger to heat water as it’s called for. The difference results in endless hot water. This powerful unit will be able to provide enough hot water for multiple simultaneous tasks – such as showering, or a load of laundry, and washing dishes – without worrying about running out of hot water.

Financial Benefit

A tankless system is more energy efficient than heating your water with a traditional tank-style water heater. Because tankless water heater technology functions on an on-demand basis, there is no holding tank of pre-warmed water, which allows the energy consumption to be more efficient. Without that heating and reheating of water, stand-by loss is eliminated. The tankless features an electronic ignition system, eliminating the need for a pilot light, which can waste un-needed gas. Rinnai tankless water heaters feature Energy Factors that range from 0.82 up to 0.96.

Save Space and Be Green 

Tankless water heaters are compact in size, because they are not designed to store gallons of pre-heated water. The tankless water heater is mounted up on a wall, freeing up floor space.

The high Energy Factor rating means less fuel needed for operating, and less carbon emissions, making the tankless water heater rental a more environmentally friendly choice.
