Endless Hot Water is A Reality
There is nothing worse than still being covered in suds in the shower, and the water starts to run cold. As you quickly rinse off to get out of the shower before it feels like you are in the arctic, your thoughts linger to what it would be like to take an endless hot shower. Tankless water heaters and hybrid water heaters are considered "on demand" and are a reality. How is it that you can turn on the shower and enjoy hot water until your fingers prune up?
A tankless water heater is designed to provide you with hot water, when you need it, for as long as you need it. Tankless water heaters heat water directly without the use of a storage tank. When a hot water tap is turned on, cold water travels through a pipe into the unit. The water is then heated with either an electrical or gas heating element and you have a constant supply of hot water. The US Department of Energy states that "demand water heaters can be 24%-34% more energy efficient than conventional storage tank water heaters." Yet another plus to endless hot water! There are some hot water output limitations to tankless water heaters but they are not your only option to endless hot water!
Bridging the gap between tank water heaters and tankless water heaters are hybrid styles that offer the best of both worlds. Rinnai announced the RH180 Hybrid Tank-Tankless Water Heater, a 91,500-Btu model that produces more than 180 gallons of hot water in the first hour. This hybrid style features a small tankless unit attached to the side of a 40-gallon tank and is the perfect option for large family homes or even small commercial operations. Gone are the days of shower schedules. With new hybrid models, you can easily use hot water in more than one application such as laundry, dishwasher and shower all at the same time.
