Can a Tankless Water Heater Keep up with My Household?

We love tankless water heaters! We think they are a great option for homes looking to replace an aging storage tank water heater with something that will help cut down on their heating bills, save space, and provide an unlimited supply of hot water. When you consider that the water heater accounts for the largest portion of heating power in your home, going with a system that significantly cuts down on energy consumption can mean a large reduction in monthly utility bills. A tankless water heater installation may cost more than a storage tank water heater, but it will pay for itself in a few years.

However, tankless isn’t a perfect choice for every household. Although tankless water heaters technically cannot run out of hot water since they are designed to always heat up more water on demand, they can be overwhelmed with demand when there are multiple taps or appliances on at once. If your household has multiple showers on during the morning, or different hot water-using appliances are running at once during the day, you may encounter a tankless water heater that begins to lose efficiency.

Professional sizing for tankless water heaters

Tank water heaters are rated by storage capacity. Tankless water heaters are rated by maximum temperature rise possible at a given flow rate. To find a water heater matched to your house requires knowing the flow rate and temperature rise necessary to provide hot water to your household without interruption.

If your response to the above is “But I don’t know that!” you don’t have to worry. This is why you always want to rely on water heater professionals to handle the installation job. You can rely on our team to find the right unit of a tankless water heater in Gaithersburg, MD to match your household’s day-to-day use so you can enjoy the full benefits of this excellent appliance.
