Bradford White Tankless Water Heater
Burns & McBride Home Comfort wants to be able to offer the top of the line technology to our customers. That is why we are proud to be able to bring you Bradford White Tankless Water Heater technology. A tankless water heater is an efficient way to provide your home unlimited hot water. Plus, you can get rid of your hot water tank – saving you space and eliminating the chance it bursts.
A traditional water heater continuously heats water in the tank, regardless of whether it is being used. By comparison, the newer tankless designs heat water only when there is demand for it. Less stored water to heat means less cost—and let’s not forget, a more compact, wall-mounted design.
Here are a few things to think about when considering a tankless water heater:
Location In our area, the groundwater can be pretty cold in the winter months. The temperature of the water will affect the speed and flow. We’ll explain this more when we meet you.
Know the Flow If you think you will need to run the washing machine or dishwasher while someone else is showering, assume a larger gallons-per-minute (GPM) rate will be on order to meet your overall water needs. Take into account water usage, too: A bathroom needs less water than a kitchen, a dishwasher less than a shower, and so on. Also, give some thought to the type of showerheads that you have. We will want to talk to about the effect low flow showerheads can have on system performance
Look into Rebates States sometimes have rebate programs that can help toward the cost of a tankless water heater. Ask our technician about rebates when he visits.
Understand the Payback Balance the cost of your unit with your ongoing operating costs. According to the U.S. Department of Energy’s Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy website, tankless water heaters can be 24 to 34 percent more efficient than a traditional tank-style water heater, depending on a home’s daily demand for hot water.
Fuel Type Your tankless water heater will use natural gas as a fuel. We will design the proper gas line sizes and venting system for your unit.
