You may be sold on the benefits of tankless water heaters but wonder if they require more maintenance than traditional storage tank systems. While the latter are less efficient due to standby losses, they generally don’t require a lot of maintenance. The good news is that tankless water heaters don’t require much maintenance, either.

A tankless system should be serviced as a part of the regular preventive maintenance that heating and cooling systems receive. Electric or gas components should be inspected.

HVAC manufacturers have responded with highly-efficient technology to recent standards created by the government. Tankless water heaters have gained notoriety as one product that meets standards, and even exceeds them.

In the past, most homes were fitted with a traditional storage tank model. While these units get the job done, there are significant losses from stand-by heating, because the storage tank is designed to hold tens of Imperial Gallons and it takes energy to maintain that heated water.

A new water heater is a purchase we’re not likely to show off to friends and family, but it’s a big decision and your household depends on its service. There are a lot of choices when it comes to how to heat your H2O, and satisfaction depends on asking the right questions:

• Which fuel source?

Is your current water heater fueled by natural gas, like most, or does electricity provide the power? Do you want to stick with the fuel source you have? Are you willing to have the water heater vented to accommodate the quick heating properties of a gas-fired unit?
