Hot water heaters are an essential component of an indoor plumbing system. These water heater units are responsible for delivering hot water to any unit in the house requiring such. Traditional water heaters are large tank units that take space in your home or apartment. As technology has evolved, much smaller, more efficient tankless water heaters have replaced these bulky hot water heaters.
What is the difference between a traditional water heater and a tankless water heater?
The biggest difference between a traditional hot water heater and a tankless hot water heater is size. A traditional hot water unit heats the water with electric elements
, or a propane
or natural gas
burner and then stores it in a tank at the desired temperature until use. However, a tankless water heater waits until the hot water is needed, and is then rapidly heated using similar methods and is instantly sent to the output device. Among tankless water heaters, there are typically two different types: point-of-use heaters and whole-house heaters.
What is a point-of-use water heater?
The point-of-use heater is a small unit, powered by electricity, which is only used for one or two outlets, such as a shower
or a kitchensink
. Because of its size, the point-of-use water heater can be installed in small places, such as a cabinet. In apartments and homes, these are ideal because they deliver an instant supply of hot water to outlets that require such.
What is a whole-house water heater?
The whole-house water heater is a tankless water unit that is a little larger than the point-of-use water heater. Because it has more power, it can be used to heat more than one outlet at a time. Whole-house water heaters are still small enough in size to be stored in convenient places.
Are you having trouble with your current tankless water heater?
Because of the complexity of many parts in a small system, it is common after much use for the heating coils or a burner in a tankless water heater to burn out. Rainforest Plumbing technicians have the equipment and experience to locate and fix the problem right away!
