Tankless water heaters have steadily risen in popularity. With so many benefits over traditional heaters, the popularity surge has good reason. There is, however, still a bit of reluctance among some homeowners about making the switch.
As the premier company for water heater repair in San Francisco, we at Sugar Bear Plumbing are familiar with quite a few myths that have plagued tankless water heaters. Here’s a look at some of them.
All Tankless Water Heaters Are the Same Size
This is a common notion we hear from customers during water heater installation procedures. The fact is that tankless water heaters come in different sizes, and we advise our clients to consider the size of their home, budget, and water demand before making a purchase.
They Cause a Hot water Supply Shortage
Many believe they will experience a hot water shortage after installing a tankless heater. While this may happen when many faucets and taps run simultaneously, clients will comfortably receive a steady hot water supply when running one or a few outlets. A tankless water heater normally provides two to five gallons of hot water every minute.
The Heat They Produce Varies
One concern for our clients looking for a water heater replacement is receiving too hot or too cold water. We assure our clients this is a non-issue because of the thermostat included in the tankless heater technology. The system also has a panel that allows our clients to set desired water temperatures.
They Are Costly
This is one of the main myths keeping many from transitioning to tankless heaters. While the upfront installation cost may be higher than that of a tank water heater, it will help you save more in the long run–especially since it requires very minimal water heater maintenance.
