High-Efficiency Tankless Water Heaters

Tankless water heaters are fast becoming the standard. They…

  • heat only the water that is needed at the moment; they don’t store hot water for future usage
  • save homeowners money with tax incentives and utility rebates, and save more money through its highly efficient operation
  • are also environmentally friendlier — tankless units are more energy efficient because they use less power than traditional water heaters

Though a tankless water heater will likely cost more to purchase than a traditional hot water heater, it will more than pay for itself in energy savings, and you’ll never run short of hot water.

For endless on-demand, energy-efficient hot water, consider a state-of-the-art tankless hot water system from Reliance Home Services. We will provide you with expert advice and satisfaction-guaranteed service for all your tankless water heater needs.

Not All Hot Water Heaters are Created Equal!

The following is an overview of hot water heaters, to help you determine which unit is best suited for your home’s unique needs.

Hot Water Heater Sizes

Residential hot water heaters come in three basic sizes: 30-, 40-, or 50-gallon capacity. If you look at the nameplate on your water heater, it will tell you the capacity. If you need to replace your water heater, it’s best to select a new one with the same capacity as the old one unless you’ve just added a dishwasher, washing machine, or bathroom, or plan to do so in the foreseeable future.

To best determine your home’s hot water needs, count the number of bathrooms in the house. For single bathroom homes, a 30- or 40-gallon unit is sufficient; for homes with 1½ baths, a 40-gallon tank is the minimum; for homes with two or more bathrooms, you’ll need at least a 50-gallon capacity.

Gas vs. Electric Hot Water Heaters

The type of fuel used to power a hot water heater can have a big impact on the unit’s capacity. A water heater’s capacity depends on two factors: its total storage and its recovery time (how quickly it can warm a full tank of water). Both gas and electric water heaters are rated based on the number of gallons they can heat to 90 degrees Fahrenheit in one hour.

Gas-powered water heaters warm up more quickly than most electric models, so if you’re planning to buy an electric system it should be larger than its gas counterpart. This is especially true if you have a large family or use more hot water than the average household. Residential electric hot water heaters can be purchased with capacities as large as 100 gallons or more.
