Here’s what demand-type waters are, and how they work

If you’ve been thinking about upgrading your water heater as part of your spring cleaning, you should really consider a demand-type water heater. Also known as “tankless” water heaters, these systems have a lot of advantages.

In this blog, we’ll review just some of the reasons you should make the switch to tankless. If you have any questions, or you’re interested in getting quotes for installation, contact the Wagner team.

What are “demand-type water heaters”?

Tankless water heaters, also commonly known as demand-type water heaters, function similarly to regular (or “standard”) water heaters. They heat water for you to use throughout your home, from your sink to your shower and your washing machine to your dishwasher.

Here’s the difference: while standard water heaters heat water ahead of time and store it in a tank, tankless water heaters don’t store water at all (hence, the name). Instead, by running water past burners, they rapidly heat water as it’s needed (which explains the “demand-type” name).

What are the advantages of this type of system?

First, since tankless systems provide you with hot water as its needed, they can constantly “refresh” the supply of hot water as its used at the faucet. The result? You have hot water that effectively can’t run out.

Any homeowner with a family understands just how much this matters. When everyone’s getting ready in the morning, standard water heaters can run out, leaving someone with a disappointing, cold shower.

In addition, tankless water heaters are more energy-efficient than standard systems. Overall, in a home that uses 41 gallons or less of hot water, these water heaters can save 24-34% more efficient. Add that up over the course of a year, and you’re effectively saving quite a bit!

A final difference: many tankless systems can be wall-mounted. This frees up the “footprint” taken up by a large water heater tank, which an be an obstacle in garages or utility closets.

Why should I upgrade to a tankless water heater?

Something we didn’t mention above: while standard water heaters only last about a decade (sometimes, more), tankless water heaters can last two decades or longer.

If you’re at the point where you need to replace your old water heater, consider upgrading to a tankless system for these benefits:

  • Energy savings for decades to come
  • Increased home value of having a tankless water heater
  • Unlimited hot water
  • No risk of a water heater tank burst

Daikin Comfort Pro Certified Dealer in AlbuquerqueWhat it means to be a Daikin Comfort Pro Certified Dealer

The Daikin Comfort Pro Certified designation isn’t something that just gets slapped onto a business. To qualify, HVAC companies need to be in great standing with the Better Business Bureau (Wagner has an A+ rating) and techs need to take regular classes on maintaining and installing Daikin systems.

Daikin regularly checks on its dealers to make sure customers are happy (as ours are) and satisfied with their installation. Wagner is proud to be a Daikin dealer because we know that not every HVAC company earns the designation.

Daikin is a name you can trust

Daikin is considered by many to be one of the world’s premier HVAC manufacturers. In fact, they’re the number one manufacturer of indoor comfort systems in the world. As such, their air conditioners, furnaces, and heat pumps lead the field in energy-efficiency, reliability, and more.

That reliability translates into longer system life, which—in turn—saves you money years down the line by delaying the date you have to replace your system.

Daikin backs their systems

Daikin believes in the manufacturing process. It’s one of the reasons that they back their products with some of the best manufacturer’s warranties in the market today.

For example, many of their systems come with limited warranties protecting the parts or even the entire unit, should it need to be replaced, for an entire 12 years. Their furnaces come with a lifetime heat exchanger limited warranty, as well.

Remember: one of the best ways to keep your Daikin system running better, longer is to schedule a seasonal AC checkup and furnace checkup with the pros here at Wagner.
