Tankless Water Heaters are not a thing of the future anymore; they are here to stay and have been tested time and time again with excellent results. The transition from traditional tank water heaters to tankless is happening at a rapid pace. People are coming to understand the initial investment (which isn’t a huge amount of money) far out ways the wasted energy that traditional water heaters gobble up. Tankless water heaters are far more compact, they only use energy when called for and last a lot longer than their traditional cousin and no one understands this better than Takagi. They are the leaders in tankless water heaters and utilize innovative technology that makes their water heaters run cheaper, cleaner and last a lot longer. Let’s take a closer look at the difference between a traditional water heater and Takagi Tankless Water Heaters.
First, Takagi exclusively manufactures their own circuit boards which guarantee the highest quality control of each unit. They deliver a constantly regulated fuel to air mixture for the best efficiency. Their state of the art circuit board also monitors the in and out flow of water, maintaining an exact temperature. No more hot and cold showers in the morning like your old water heater used to do.
With traditional water heaters, only about 70% of the tanks volume is utilized so on a 50 gallon tank only 35 gallons will be available to the desired temperature. The burner is then fired when the tank is low or when the water temperature drops below the specified amount. A traditional tank has a recovery period of approximately 1 gallon per minute and this results in a lot of wasted energy. All this equates to a poor Energy Factor (EF). The EF of a traditional heater is somewhere between 0.53 and 0.62, which means for every dollar spent continuously heating the water, $0.62 is used to heat the water and $0.38 of you hard earned money is wasted.
Takagi Tankless Water Heaters function much differently, they only use the minimal amount of gas and water that’s called for, so there is no waste. The demand for water is the only factor that turns the heating unit on and delivers perfect temperature to your shower or faucet every time you need it. The water also flows continuously at the correct temperature as long as you need it, you will never have a cold shower again. Takagi Tankless units do not store any water and have no pilot light, which makes the Energy Factor (EF) of these units between 0.81 and 0.94, depending on the gas type and model you choose.
Takagi is committed to quality and innovation; they are creating new technology constantly to stay present with consumers ever changing needs. They produce a product that is good for your wallet and good for the environment. Choosing Takagi Tankless Water Heaters is a win-win for everyone, they provide a quality product at a great price.
