Many homeowners throughout Chula Vista have upgraded their homes’ water heating systems to tankless water heaters, but there are many misconceptions surrounding this technology, preventing others from making the switch. Primarily, many people believe that tankless systems do not work for larger homes. This is only partially true. If you own a larger home in Chula Vista, you can still take advantage of tankless water heating technology.
Why Go Tankless?
A tankless water heater only generates hot water on demand. It does not store any hot water as a tank system would. This means you only expend exactly as much energy as necessary whenever you need hot water. These systems are perfect for smaller homes, but they typically struggle to provide hot water efficiently in larger homes with multiple bathrooms and lots of water-based appliances.
Many modern tankless systems also feature smart technology. They can communicate with your smartphone via Bluetooth. Many come with proprietary control apps that you can install quickly and easily on your preferred device. If you’re angling for the ideal smart-home with all controls at your fingertips, a tankless water heater is the way to go.
Configuring Multiple Tankless Systems
While installing multiple tankless water heaters in your home may come at a higher cost than replacing your tank system, the long-term benefits could be well worth the investment. These devices ensure your home’s hot water usage is as efficient as possible. In a larger home, you could have your plumber install a tankless system for each floor or dedicated tankless water heaters for appliance rooms and the water-based appliances you use the most.
Tankless water heaters allow you to configure them remotely with some options. If you’re interested in being able to manage water temperature and track your energy usage from your smartphone via Bluetooth, then installing tankless water heaters in your home is the ideal solution for you.
