Tankless/ On Demand Water Heater in Union, NJ

The Difference Between Tankless Water Heaters and Indirect Water Heaters

Want to know more about your options? Talk to a member of our team to hear about the energy efficiency of indirect water heaters and tankless water heaters. They may operate differently, but either system can save a lot of money over the years.

A tankless water heater is also called an "on–demand" water heater because it only heats up the water when you need it. It doesn’t use up energy storing hot water in a tank, which means it can save you a lot of money each month.

An indirect water heater is another popular water heater alternative in our area. It is installed next to your boiler with special controlling. An indirect water heater uses your boiler to heat the water.

Tankless/On–Demand Water Heater Installation

We often recommend indirect water heaters for those looking to improve home efficiency, but tankless water heaters are also an excellent option. Tankless water heaters are compact, so you have more storage space available in your home. They don’t require a large tank because they only heat up water when you are using hot water, and then they shut off when you’re done.

The lack of a large storage tank also makes these systems very efficient. Tankless water heaters do not need to run all day long, so they end up using significantly less energy. And you won’t have to worry about them running out of hot water, either.

Maintain and Repair Your Tankless/ On Demand Water Heater

Make sure that you take all of the right steps necessary to care for your tankless/on demand unit. Water heater maintenance is more important for a gas tankless/on demand water heater in order to ensure its longevity and efficiency.

First of all, it’s important for technicians to check for any potential safety issues with the sediment/scaling inside the unit. If you have "hard water," mineral deposits can damage the heat exchanger, so you should have our technician service your unit once a year.

In addition, make sure that you call us the moment you notice a problem, so that it does not have a chance to get any worse.
