Tankless Water Heater Myths

If you’ve heard of tankless hot water heaters, we can almost guarantee that you’ve also heard some tankless water heater myths. Read more, or call us at Jersey Boys Plumbing, Heating, and Air today to learn more about this water heating option.

Myth #1: They Make Your Water Too Hot

While it is true that tankless water heaters can heat water to a higher temperature than conventional water heaters can, they also have a way to control the temperature. This allows you to set the temperature where you want it. This means that you can adjust it to your liking and avoid water that is too hot.

Myth #2: They Cost a Lot to Run

It’s true that the initial cost of a tankless, or continuous, water heater is higher than that of a tank water heater. However, they are also more energy-efficient and can save you money over time. Tankless water heaters only heat water when you need it, which means that they use up to 70% less energy and your bills should be lower.

Myth #3: They Make Hot Water Instantly

While tankless hot water heaters do heat water quickly, there is still a small delay between when you turn on the faucet and when your hot water gets where you need i. However, this delay is usually only a few seconds and many people don’t even notice it.

Myth #4: They Don’t Make Enough Hot Water

Tankless water heaters do have a limited output capacity, but they can still provide enough hot water for most households. If you have a larger household or a high demand for a lot of hot water at once, you can simply install multiple tankless water heaters or buy a larger unit.

Myth #5: They Only Use Natural Gas

Natural gas is the most common fuel source for continuous water heaters, they can also run on propane or electricity. This makes tankless water heaters an option for any household, regardless of what you have to power it with.

Myth #6: They Won’t Work With Your Well

While it is true that well water can sometimes be hard and contain minerals that can cause buildup in a tankless water heater, most of them are designed to handle well water. It is important to talk to a professional plumber to find the best tankless hot water heater to use with your well.
