The water in the Durham is typically very hard and calcium deposits from that hard water tend to build up in the bottom of traditional tank water heaters. This makes the unit less efficient over time, eventually preventing it from heating water at all. A better option is a Nortiz tankless water heater installed by the professional, punctual plumbers with Benjamin Franklin Plumbing of Durham.
Tankless water heaters have the advantage of not needing a tank to provide hot water. This means that hard water does not sit in a tank where the calcium can settle to the bottom and build up. This sediment build up can be carried through the hot water pipes and into your bath or shower. Don’t take baths in water that has been contaminated by deposits from the bottom of a traditional hot water heater tank. Tankless water heaters heat on demand and need no tank. They are more energy efficient than tank heaters because they do not have to keep a large volume of water heated over 100 degrees all the time.
A tankless water heater takes up less space, giving you more options for locating it in your home. Be ready to tell the plumber where you would like to have the tankless water heater installed. They can be mounted on a wall and should be nearest the plumbing fixture that uses the most hot water. Choosing a tankless water heater gives you back the large amount of storage space required to keep the standard tank water heater. In some homes, this could give you more attic space or another closet.
