If you are installing a new water heater in the near future, you should consider both conventional storage tank units but also tankless water heaters. In the right situation, tankless water heaters can perform more reliably, provide substantial savings and can be more versatile.
How Tankless Units Work
Instead of having a reservoir of hot water that is always kept heated, a tankless unit stores no hot water, which eliminates a major portion of heat loss. A tankless system will be put right on your existing water line near your primary points of use. Water is then heated as needed and delivered as normal through your tap.
The Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters
Here are just some of the potential ways you could benefit from this relatively new type of water heater:
Despite all these benefits, there are some homes in which a storage tank water heater might be a better choice. The best way to find out if a tankless water heater is right for your Peachtree City home is to contact Powers Heating & Air for expert advice.
