Tankless Water Heater Services in Twin Falls, ID
The conventional water heater—what most people think of when they hear the words water heater—uses a large storage tank and gas burners or electrical heating elements to maintain the water inside at a steady temperature. This is no longer the only viable way to have hot water for a home, however. An option that’s immensely popular in Europe and rapidly expanding in North America is the tankless water heater. These units offer a number of superb advantages to homeowners that include energy savings and an unlimited hot water supply.

How Does a Tankless Water Heater Work?
Instead of storing water, as a tank water heater does, a tankless water heater is an installation on the hot water pipes. The water moves through a heat exchanger that uses either natural gas or electricity to transfer the heat to the water as it passes through. The movement of the water is what causes the heat exchanger to come on, so energy is only used whenever a tap or an appliance comes on that needs hot water. This is why tankless water heaters are also known as "on demand" water heaters.
Reasons to Schedule Tankless Water Heater Installation
A tankless water heater usually costs more to install than a standard storage tank water heater, but the many benefits outweigh the initial price:
- Energy conservation: Because a tankless water heater only uses energy "on demand," rather than continually to maintain stored water at the right temperature, it consumes far less energy. You’ll experience much lower heating bills over the year with one in your home.
- Longevity: The reduction in energy use and the lack of the strain of water in a tank makes tankless water heaters much longer–lived than conventional models.
- Unlimited hot water: For many homes, this is the best advantage of all—since hot water is always heated up as needed, the water heater won’t run out of hot water!
- Space–saving: Tankless water heaters are small, usually mounted on a wall. Some can even be mounted outside.
