A water heater is the core of all modern plumbing systems. It’s from here that hot water is distributed throughout the plumbing system and utilized by devices such as the bath, shower, dishwasher and faucets. This integral part of a home or commercial structure is also likely to be most expensive piece of equipment. Given that heating water accounts for approximately 15 percent of a homes energy use it is crucial to make a wise choice.
When deciding which electric tankless water heater to choose from, there are a number of factors that must be considered. Westside Wholesale and our service experts can help with this process.
Power. Factors such as the local groundwater temperature and the devices using the hot water must be considered. Information on the required flow rate (known as gpm) and the temperature rise needed must be included in the decision. Westside Wholesale or a plumbing expert can assist you in determining your needs in this area.
Efficiency. Looking for the government approved Energy Star mark will give assurance that the product will deliver energy savings. Considering that Energy Star electric tankless heaters can deliver savings of 45% - 60% when compared to the minimum standard this should be a key consideration, especially in conjunction with the next factor.
Cost. Although an electric tankless water heater will cost more than regular storage style heaters this money can be recouped over the life of the heater. Because hot water does not need to be kept on standby energy is only used when the unit is active. Not only does this benefit your bank balance but it also helps the environment.
Use. A choice must be made between a point-of-use (POU) heater and a whole structure system. In large industrial units a POU system may be more effective whereas single units have sufficient capability to deliver hot water across a standard sized home.
