Boca Raton Tankless Electric Water Heater Services
Offering the Latest in Plumbing Technology in Palm Beach County
Are you looking to decrease how much you pay each month for utilities? Consider installing an electric tankless water heater. This type of system only produces hot water when you turn on your faucet, switch on the dishwasher, or press start on the washing machine. Instead of holding hot water in a tank, water is heated instantaneously when it passes through the tankless system. Not only will this save you money on energy, but it also means that you’ll never run out of hot water.
If you are considering installing a tankless electric water heater in Boca Raton, turn to the experts at Watermen Plumbing Inc. Our plumbers are trained and certified by a Master Plumber, ensuring your new system will be installed correctly the first time. If you are uncertain about what system to purchase, our team can help you make an informed decision about which brand and model is right for your needs and budget.
Choosing Your Fuel Type
Tankless water heaters run on electricity, natural gas, or propane. Since gas and propane are not as accessible for many homeowners, electric is often the best and only option. In addition, choosing electricity as the power source is sometime preferred because of the added safety. An electric tankless water heater does not require a gas line, which could be prone to dangerous leaks and explosions. While both electric and gas tankless systems are much more efficient than traditional systems, gas models usually win the day when it comes to maximizing energy savings.
How to Select the Right Size Tankless Electric Water Heater
Once you’ve decided to purchase a tankless electric water heater, you will need to choose a unit that is properly sized. Sizing is dependent on two primary factors: flow rate and temperature rise. Flow rate is the measurement of how many gallons of water will be required at one time. You will need to add up the flow rate of the maximum number of fixtures or appliances that require hot water simultaneously. For example, if you wish to run two showers at the same time, and their individual flow rate is 2.5 gallons per minute, you will need a water heater that has a flow rate of at least 5 gallons per minute.
Temperature rise refers to the desired output temperature less the incoming water temperature. For example, if the water coming into your home is normally 50°F and you wish to heat that water to 105°F, you will need to raise the incoming temperature by 55°F.
