Electric tankless water heating is optimal in a new construction application.
Key Features and Benefits of Electric Tankless Water heating in New Homes
- Continuous Hot Water - Tankless technology gives the homeowner continuous hot water – great for larger families
- Shorter Wait Times - Tankless technology heats water much faster than a standard tank
- Energy Efficient – A tankless water heater only operates when hot water is turned on in the house while a standard tank water heater operates to maintain a consistent temperature on stored water that is not in use.
- Life Expectancy - Longer life expectancy than a standard tank. Since water is not being stored, there are less corrosive effects on the heating elements.
No venting or combustion air circulation is required with an electric tankless water heater. Not only does this save you on venting and piping costs but it allows you to locate it almost anywhere in your home, saving precious storage and closet space. Plus, you can save energy by locating it near where you use most of your hot water–kitchen and baths–because you don’t have to worry about venting.
Electric tankless water heaters come in a variety of sizes from a small 4 kW point of use unit for areas such as a kitchen sink to larger 24-36 kW that would typically serve a whole home.
It’s Endless Supply
Because an electric tankless water heater only heats water when you need it, for as long as you need it, there is an endless supply of hot water for those long showers.
It’s Clean, Quiet and Efficient
There are no combustion noises and no fumes with an electric tankless water heater.
An electric tankless water heater is up to 99% efficient and can save you money on your water heating costs.
When deciding on an electric tankless water heater, several considerations should be taken into account, such as choosing the correct size unit to meet the needs of your application, electrical requirements for the unit chosen and an efficient plumbing layout to ensure faster hot water delivery.
