Tankless Water Heaters in Clovis, NM
The tankless water heater isn’t a new invention. From the earliest days of powered water heaters, there were systems that didn’t require a large storage tank in order to supply hot water. However, tankless water heaters have only recently developed the technology to be practical and effective for homes. Today, these models offer some excellent benefits over standard storage tank models, and their popularity in Europe has spread to the U.S.

How Do Tankless Water Heaters Work?
Homeowners are so attached to the idea of storage tanks when it comes to hot water that they find it a bit difficult to imagine how a tankless system might operate. But the principles are actually quite basic. A tankless water heater consists of a heat exchanger attached to the hot water line in a house. The water passes through a heat exchanger, where heat from either natural gas or electrical heating elements is applied to it. The heat exchanger is activated by the movement of water, so the water is only heated when a tap turns on demanding hot water somewhere in the house. For this reason, tankless systems are also called on–demand water heaters.
Benefits of Tankless Water Heater Installation
Tankless water heaters are usually more expensive to install than conventional water heaters, but they return their investment in a variety of ways:
- Less expensive to run – Because these systems only consume energy when there’s a demand for hot water, they’re more fuel efficient than storage systems, which must keep up a steady supply of heat to maintain water temperature.
- Never run out of hot water – Since there’s no standing water supply that can be depleted and the system is always ready to heat up more water, tankless systems won’t leave anyone in your home with cold showers in the morning. Or cold water any time!
- Extended lifespan – Without the stresses of hot water in a tank and the constant use of energy, tankless water heaters will last for more years than conventional systems. That gives you even more time to reap in energy savings.
A tankless system will run down eventually, and you should always make sure to call on professionals to handle the necessary replacement work when that happens.
