Tankless water heaters have become increasingly popular due to their energy efficiency, convenience, and space-saving benefits. However, before purchasing a tankless heater, there are various things you should know to make sure that you are making the right decision for your home and lifestyle. JNR Plumbing offers quality water heater repair in Darien, CT, and here are some things you need to know before purchasing a tankless heater.


Unlike traditional water heaters, which store water in the tank, tankless heaters heat the water on demand as it flows through the unit. This means that a tankless water heater can give you unlimited amounts of hot water and meet your household’s needs easily. It’s important, however, to consider the capacity of your tankless heater. Most tankless units can deliver 2 GPM to 12 GPM of hot water. For homes with one bathroom, we recommend investing in a water heater that can deliver 6-7 GPM.

Installation and Maintenance

Traditional heaters require a lot of space for water heater installation, depending on the size of the tank. In comparison, a tankless water heater only needs very little space, making them ideal for homes with small spaces or apartments. While tankless water heaters are not prone to rust or corrosion, they still require regular maintenance to ensure longevity and optimal performance.

Energy Efficiency

Tankless water heaters are usually more energy-efficient than traditional water heaters since they only heat water on demand and when needed. This means you can save money on your energy bills in the long run. This makes them a great choice for water heater replacement. Just be sure to check the Energy Star ratings of the water heater before purchasing.

Investing in a tankless heater is a great way to enjoy hot water on demand without the high energy bills. If you are still trying to decide on a water heater for your home, turn to JNR Plumbing for professional water heater services. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.
