Tankless & On-Demand Water Heaters in the North Shore

Tankless water heaters, also called on-demand water heaters, may sound too good to be true, but they are, in fact, as good as it gets. We love our tried-and-true stand-up storage tank water heaters. But during bitter-cold winters, North Shore homeowners have much to gain in energy savings with a tankless water heater.

What is a Tankless Water Heater & How Does it Work?

Tankless water heaters work on an on-demand basis, heating water when you need it. This is different from a traditional water heater, where the tank heats water and stores it until needed.

Here’s how tankless & on-demand water heaters work:

  1. A sensor detects when you turn on a hot water faucet and activates the heater. 
  2. Water flows to the heater.
  3. A series of heating elements instantly heat the water. 
  4. The system continues to heat until the faucet is turned off and the sensor recognizes that the water flow has been stopped.

Benefits of Endless Hot Water

  • Cost and energy savings. Unused hot water in a traditional tank eventually cools off, requiring more energy to re-heat it. This is called standby heat loss and is one of the biggest contributors to your water heating expense, especially when it's cold out! The US Department of Energy estimates tankless water heaters are up to 34% more efficient.
  • Continuous hot water. While a tank only holds a finite amount of water, a tankless system’s hot water supply is limitless. You will never have to worry about running out of hot water while taking a shower because on-demand hot water flow doesn’t stop until you do.
  • Convenience and durability. Most tankless systems can be installed on almost any wall inside or outside of a home because they are about the size of a carry-on suitcase (much smaller than a storage tank). The average tankless system lasts about 20 years, while most traditional water heaters last 10 to 15 years.
  • Water quality. Over time contaminants such as rust and scale can build up in a storage tank, causing wear on your appliances and faucets. A tankless system always provides instant freshwater flow from the moment you turn it on until you turn it off.

Endless hot water systems will save you money. Give us a call, (978) 750-6900 to learn more.

Tankless Water Heater Frequently Asked Questions

Is an on-demand water heater cheaper than a traditional water heater?

In the long run, yes! Tankless water heaters are estimated to be between 8% and 34% more efficient than storage tank water heaters, depending on your hot water usage.

Is there a greater risk of breakdowns or malfunction with a tankless water heater?

Like any machine or appliance, issues and breakdowns with on-demand water heaters are highly unlikely when installed and maintained properly. Because tankless systems are far more complex than storage tanks, we highly discourage DIY installation and repairs. 

I have a big house and a large family. Can an on-demand hot water tank really handle my hot water needs?

Multiple uses simultaneously will stretch a tankless heater to its limit but depending on your heat source and timing of use, running out of hot water would be possible but rare. Large households or buildings could consider using two tankless units or a single unit as a booster for certain high-use appliances.
