How does a tankless systemwork?

Tankless Water Heaters in the Oakland & Berkeley Areas

Are you looking for a substitute for your traditional water heater? Harry Clark Plumbing is more than happy to address your water heating needs. We have a variety of models to choose from and our team is committed to helping you find the best option for your home. The first step in choosing right model for your home is to understand the differences between the varieties.

Traditional Water Heaters

A traditional water heater, often referred to as a boiler, can only hold a certain amount of water which limits the amount of hot water available to you at one time. Additionally, it is designed to keep the water heated so that it is available when you want it. This sounds convenient, but the drawback is that since the tank only holds a certain amount of water, once it's gone, so is your hot water source for a time while it refills and heats again. This uses a considerable amount of energy. The larger the capacity of the tank, the more energy it uses to fill and stay hot until you need it.

The Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters

There are many advantages to having a tankless water heater verses having a traditional water heater. A tankless water heater merely heats the water when you need it. Instead of using a tremendous amount of energy to keep the water heated around the clock, a tankless heater heats the water on demand. This means that you have a truly endless supply of hot water. Since this style of water heater doesn't require a big bulky tank to hold hot water, you also save space. The compact design is highly efficient and reduces energy usage. The longevity of a tankless water heater is about 20 years which is just about double the life expectancy of a traditional hot water heater.

Eternal Tankless Water Heaters
Eternal Tankless Water Heaters

Eternal was the first to combine a buffer storage tank with the tankless water heater. This feature allowed for a sooner and more continuous flow of hot water. Unfortunately Eternal was part of a large retail chain that went out of business. Parts are no longer available. I have this unit installed in my home and when it needs to be replaced I will use the Navien 240A. It is a perfect choice for replacing the Eternal Water Heater when needed.
