Tankless Water Heaters in Denver

Denver Leak Repair As their name suggests, tankless hot-water heaters, also known as on-demand water heaters, don't store hot water in a tank. Instead, these units are typically mounted on a wall (even outdoors in mild climates) and start heating water only when a faucet is turned on. Since households use hot water only intermittently, this saves fuel.

Consumers can also turn down the thermostat safely since there's no tank of water that may breed bacteria. The major advantage of tankless units is that when sized correctly, a household will never run out of hot water. Tankless water heaters also save space and last longer -- 20 years or more on average -- and can be repaired to last even longer. They can also provide useful backup to solar water heaters and can boost tank-style water heaters during peak periods of use.

Tankless (on-demand) water heater

Gas TanklessFor whole-house tankless water heaters, most experts say gas is the preferred fuel since it heats water faster and more efficiently. Small electric tankless models are useful as point-of-use water heaters installed right by a particular faucet. The best gas tankless water heaters are eligible for the 30 percent federal tax credit on the installed price -- important since switching from a tank-style heater to an on-demand model usually requires quite a bit of installation labor. (No electric tankless water heaters are energy-efficient enough to qualify for Energy Star certification.) Consumers may need to install bigger intake water pipes and/or a different venting system prior to operation.
