Tankless water heaters are designed to conserve energy and water alike, and many people upgrade to a tankless model to save money and to promote a healthier environment.
Other homeowners will wait until their existing hot water heater completely dies before considering an upgrade to a tankless model. However, many wonder if a tankless model is the right style of hot water heater for their home. Before you make the decision to buy a tankless model, you should learn more about how they work.
How Does a Tankless Water Heater Work?
With a traditional tank-style water heater, the water is heated in a tank and stored until it is needed. When water is needed, cold water must pass through to the bottom of the heater until the hot water pushes out from the top into the pipes. Comparatively, a tankless water heater goes into action the moment you require hot water, which is heated instantly and this saves energy. The process is triggered when the tankless hot water heater senses the demand for hot water. This occurs when you use water in the shower, kitchen or bathroom sink, or in the laundry room.
The tankless hot water heater will heat the water as it goes through the heat exchanger, which is activated by the incoming water as it flows through. When you turn the hot water tap off, the heat exchanger shuts down, saving energy and money. This is very different from more common tank-style hot water heaters, which store large quantities of heated water in a tank.
More Benefits of a Tankless Water Heater
Not only will a tankless heater save you money on your energy bills, it will also save valuable space within your home since these systems do not require large holding tanks like their traditional counterparts do. This can free up some space in your garage or closet for extra storage.
Another feature that makes these new, more modern heaters very popular is the fact that it is virtually impossible to run out of hot water. It only takes a few consecutive showers to deplete a traditional heater’s tank. Afterwards, it is necessary to wait up to an hour before the tank’s contents are fully heated again so you can access hot water. With a tankless system, the supply is endless.
Tankless hot water systems have proven to be more durable than traditional systems. Reports indicate that they can last as much as 10 years longer. Therefore, they can be the wisest investment from a longer-term perspective, despite their higher initial cost. This provides a whole host of important advantages, including:
- Better efficiency
- Endless hot water on demand Money savings
- Smaller footprint
- Longer life span
- Warranties run to 25 years!

Why Should You Get a Tankless Water Heater Maintenance Tune-Up in Tucson, Arizona?
You want to ensure your tankless water heater is at 100% with all the hot water you need. That’s why it’s essential to have your tankless water heater tuned-up with an annual maintenance service. A tankless hot water heater maintenance tune-up has three primary benefits:
Increased Water Heater Efficiency & Money Saved
One of the most common issues to occur in your tankless water heater is the buildup of sediment from loose minerals in our Tucson, Marana, Vail, and Oro Valley, AZ water supply. The more buildup, the less efficient your tankless water heating unit becomes. Banging or knocking is usually an indication of buildup in the heat exchanger of your tankless water heater & means it’s time to call the experts at Cal’s Plumbing to get your annual tankless water heater maintenance.
