Hot Water On Demand

Never run out of hot water when you need it!

With spring on its way the day is fast approaching when we’ll be turning off the heat and enjoying warm summer days.

But for those of us with traditional hot water systems like indirect tanks supplied by the boiler or traditional oil- or gas-fired heaters, warm summer days are often accompanied by limited hot-water supplies. There are few things more irritating in everyday domestic living than running out of hot water when you’re in the middle of a much-needed shower or when the kids are home from the beach and want to clean off the salt and sand in the tub.

The good news is that there is now an alternative to the old way: the 95%-efficient propane-fired tankless (or instant) hot water heater.

Here’s how it works: you open a hot-water tap and water flows into the water heater. A flow sensor activates the burner, which heats the water as it passes through the heat exchanger. By the time the water leaves the heater it’s hot and as long as water flows through the heater the burner will continue to fire. Close the hot-water tap and the flow of water ceases causing the burner to shut off.

And because the system doesn’t need a tank, it’s compact and can be wall-mounted in a variety of locations.

    My one comment on these systems after just buying a home in Maine with one of these. I always had a tank system and installed a very high efficiency model and saw big savings. Using the tankless, I must wait easily 45-60 secs or more to get hot water. That wasnt the case with the tank system. I have had it inspected and seems the answer is that a certain flow must be achieved to trigger the burner, then you wait for it to turn on, then you wait for it to actually heat water. Its very annoying to have this delay every time you turn on a faucet. Plumber told me its due to flow restrictors in every faucet. If they would allow higher flow rate, you would trigger quicker. But your are stuck with this. I am seriously considering going back to a HE tank.

    Keep this in mind if you consider tankless.
