causes the home owner to continuously have problems which require repairs. The cost of those repairs can really add up over time. Take for example, this radiant system we encounter was installed completely wrong. To the average heating and cooling contractors, it was installed properly and they would be non the wiser. To us, we could see the mistakes as clear as day, he was having problems with the system not running, all during winter. Now he has to dish out $2,500 to have everything ripped out and installed correctly, by professional highly trained technicians.

Even though technology has changed over the years, tank water heaters are still popular for a number of reasons. If you are considering replacing your tank water heater but don’t know whether to stick with a tank or switch to a tankless water heater, you should consider the pros and cons.

Tankless water heaters are able to meet the needs of families. Tank water systems still have plenty of pros, despite the popularity of tankless systems. One pro is that a tank water heater doesn’t use as much electricity as people assume. Over the course of a year, the actual amount it costs to run a tank water heater is minimal. They are also a lot easier to install and replace than a tankless water heater.

The cons may be obvious compared to a tankless water heater. One major con is that you can run out of hot water. You only have enough hot water to fill the tank. Once it runs out, you have to wait until the tank fills with water and reheats. Cold showers can be inevitable on a busy morning.

When you need a new water heater, whether it is a tank or tankless water heater, you need the facts. This will help you pick the right option for your family. Let High Performance Heating, Cooling, & Hydronics help you decide the best option for you.

How old is your tank water heater? How long of a shower can you take before the cold comes pouring out?

Why An Efficient Tankless water Heater?

Tankless water heaters have been getting some attention lately. They are relatively new to the market and are revolutionary in many ways.

With a tankless system you don’t have to run out of hot water. No more cold showers – no matter how many people need to shower.

However, the challenge with a tankless water heater is that it can mean revamping your entire system. It can involve adding a larger source of gas for operation, making it complicated to install.

Many of us have experienced the rough winters of Rochester New York. Those cold nights are all we can think about as soon as the summer season changes and temperatures begin to drop. No one looks forward to those cold showers. But the good news? We finally have the water heating equipment that can combat this problem! It’s time to say hello to a tankless water heater.

So why do many homeowners brag about their tankless water heater? These bad boys come with several key advantages.

The best advantage is the never-ending supply of hot water. With minimal lag time and immediate warming, you have hot water for all your home equipment. No more cold showers this winter!

But the benefits don’t end there. Tankless water heaters save space since they’re mounted on the wall, beneath the sink, in cupboards, or in closets – wherever they’re closer to where they’ll be used. Some even come with antifreeze accessories that allow them to endure below-freezing temperatures if they’re mounted outside the house.

In addition, since tankless water heaters use only enough energy to heat the desired amount of water at any given moment, they can save up to twenty percent on your energy bills. You won’t be wasting energy through stand-by heat any longer.

Tankless water heaters have another benefit over traditional hot water tanks: they last approximately twice as long. The typical lifespan for a tank is ten years, whereas tankless water heaters last anywhere from 15 to 20 years.

There is a saying, “You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone.” Well, that is certainly true about most things. If you have been in the shower, singing along and trying not to get shampoo in your eyes, and the hot water turns to ice cold, you certainly know this feeling well.

Losing hot water in the middle of a shower, or while you are trying to get the last of the pots and pans cleaned, is frustrating. If you are losing hot water, you may need the help from High Performance Heating, Cooling, & Hydronics.

Another reason may be the thermometer. If it is malfunctioning, the water might not be getting as hot as it should. The burners in the water heater might not be working right either. If they are caked in dirt and debris, the water heater won’t work right.
