At Bonita Plumber, our team strives to help our customers choose the most cost-effective and reliable plumbing solutions for their homes. Many homeowners in the Chula Vista area have decided to upgrade their home plumbing systems with tankless water heaters. If you have been thinking of ways to enhance your plumbing system and want to reduce energy costs, a tankless water heater could be the ideal solution. However, there are some caveats that come with this decision, so consider a few of the pros and cons of tankless water heater systems before you make your decision.
Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters
Many Southern California homeowners are making the switch to tankless systems for their energy efficiency and light water usage. Unlike tank systems that fill large tanks full of hot water and release it later, tankless water heaters generate hot water on demand, only using as much energy as required to produce hot water as needed. This type of system is especially beneficial in California, a state prone to experience long droughts. Tankless systems minimize water and energy usage and are ideal for smaller homes.
Drawbacks of Tankless Systems
While tankless water heater systems can be great for some homes, they are not as effective in others. Larger homes in particular may have trouble with hot water, especially if a large house only has one heater to supply hot water to several faucets and bathrooms. It is still possible to install tankless water heaters in large homes, but it is often more effective to install multiple units, dedicating each to different areas of the house.
Consider the Pros and Cons and Think about Upgrading
Every homeowner has different needs and goals when it comes to hot water and energy efficiency. A large family may have several bathrooms and a kitchen in use all at once and could benefit more from a traditional tank system while a smaller efficiency home for a single person or a couple could see tremendous savings from installing a tankless water heater system.
