How to Stop Running Out of Hot Water

Posted on June 11, 2013 by noritz

One of the most common annoyances of any home is running out of hot water partway through a shower. Luckily, advances in Noritz tankless water heating technology allows for a continuous stream of hot water.

It’s happened to all of us. Whether it’s because of an inefficient water heater or your family takes extra-long showers, at some point you’ve run out of hot water halfway through your shower! As the water begins to cool, do you rush to rinse off and finish, or suck it up and finish with a blistering cold shower?

You may not have to do either one when you upgrade your old traditional water heater to a new tankless water heating system.

The reason you’re likely running out of hot water is because traditional water heaters don’t actually heat the water when you need it. Instead, they heat the water slowly and store the hot water in a bulky tank. No matter how big your tank may be, it can still run out – and when it does, it can take quite some time before more water can heat up.

Today, advances in tankless water heater technology have made them increasingly more popular due to their efficiency and convenience.

A tankless water heater actually heats water on-demand as you use it. When you turn on the hot water in your house, the tankless water heater kicks in and circulates water through the heat exchanger to bring it up to the desired temperature in just seconds. When the hot water tap is turned off, so does the unit.

On-demand hot water is just one reason why most modern homes are going tankless. Other advantages to switching to tankless include:

  • Highly Energy Efficient: Traditional heaters have to work 24/7 to keep the tank of water hot even if you only use it a few times during the day.
  • Longer Lasting: Noritz tankless water heaters have a typical life span of 20 years, which can be twice as long as a traditional tank style unit.
  • Space Saving: Noritz tankless units are significantly smaller than traditional heaters and can be mounted on a wall or installed outdoors or indoors.

Whether you decide to go with a natural gas or propane unit, you can be sure you’ll be enjoying continuous hot water and other advantages.
