On Demand Water Heating at Sumintra LLC

On demand water heaters heat water only as it is used. The tankless units that we install heat the water the moment a hot water faucet is opened and continues to provide an unending supply of hot water until you shut off the faucet. Although in most homes natural gas is the common fuel there are units that can run on propane or electricity.

On Demand Water Heater When a hot water faucet is turned on, the unit senses this demand and cold water will flow into the unit. A gas burner (if you have a gas model) heats the water to the temperature set by the user on a digital control pad. This happens very quickly and a consistent temperature is maintained for as long as the faucet remains open. When the faucet is closed, the unit shuts off.

Although there is a higher upfront cost to install an on demand water heater, they save you money in the long run because they do not produce the standby energy losses associated with conventional hot water heaters and tanks. Additionally, there is currently a federal tax credit for 30% of the cost installing certain on demand water heaters (capped at $1,500). Stop paying to keep a tank of hot water heated 24 hours a day 7 days a week and stop limiting your hot water use to the volume of water held in the tank.
