Tankless Electric Hot Water Heaters
A tankless hot water heater can be a great choice if you are in the market to replace or maybe add a water heater for your home.
- Most homes have a conventional storage hot water heater system that varies in capacity from 30 to 80 gallons. These are usually up to six feet tall and are installed in your garage, attic or small closet inside your home.
- Another option, becoming more popular today is an on-demand tankless system. These units provide a continuous source of hot water. From around 2 gallons per minute up to almost 10 gallons per minute and powered by natural gas, electricity or propane.
A hot water system in your home needs to be:
- Reliable: It works whenever you need it.
- Tailored to your needs: It needs to be matched to your lifestyle and living conditions.
The technology behind a tankless water heater has made significant strides over the years and is now an affordable option for many people. Because homes may have access to different types of energy sources, tankless units are manufactured to accommodate the following energy sources:
- Natural gas
- Propane gas
