3 Common Tankless Water Heater Fallacies

Tankless water heaters are what the fuss is all about lately when it comes to comfort and convenience. The technology behind them is largely appealing to homeowners all across the Twin Cities area and it’s no wonder – the efficiency and endless amounts of hot water are unmatched. But before you replace your current water heater, we want to clear up a few misconceptions.

False: Plug it in and it’s ready to go.

Truth: Most tankless water heaters are more involved than a simple swap out. Your current gas meter and line may not be sized appropriately to hand the new load and new tankless water heaters often require the installation of a new exhaust vent.

False: Tankless water heaters provide hot water faster.

Truth: Homeowners often replace the word “tankless” with “instant.” Sure, you will be replacing your conventional heater with a new piece of equipment that has lots of benefits, but it won’t necessarily deliver hot water faster. The water still has to run through the pipes to the desired location and that takes some time.

False: All tankless water heaters are the same.

Truth: From firepower to the size of the unit and amount of maintenance required, there’s a great deal of differences between models.
