How Do Electric Tankless
Water Heaters Work?
Because of potential energy savings and offering hot water on demand, electric tankless water heaters are growing in popularity. Electric tankless water heaters help reduce the energy consumption in your home by eliminating the need to maintain hot water in a large storage vessel. With high efficiency ratings and groundbreaking innovative designs, State electric tankless water heaters serve a wide range of applications, from point-of-use to whole-house. These models all deliver continuous hot water anytime it’s needed, and they can be easily installed in small spaces that could not accommodate tank water heaters, like closets, laundry rooms and bathrooms.
Instead of relying on a stored supply of hot water, electric tankless water heaters heat your home’s water when you need it. When you turn on a hot water tap, water enters the water heater and passes through the heat exchanger, where an electric resistance coil warms the water to the desired temperature. If sized correctly for your needs, hot water can always be easily delivered to your home.
What do I need to begin?
All you need is electricity and water, but we recommend consulting a licensed professional before making a final purchase decision. They will help ensure you meet electrical service requirements, have everything you need for installation, and evaluate your home’s climate.
Which size is best?
When it comes to size, consider the temperature of incoming groundwater, the required flow rate of hot water, existing electrical service, and any breaker panel restrictions that may be in place. These all impact the electric tankless water heater size that is best for you, so be sure to consider all factors before making a decision.
Where should I install it?
Because they have a small footprint, any location in your home with the appropriate hookups will work well. Offices, bathrooms, laundry rooms, closets and locations remote from the main water source are all typical installation areas.
Is venting required?
State electric tankless water heaters do not require venting.
