Tankless Water Heater Orem
Tankless water heaters are designed to provide endless hot water for your home. These water heaters, which are smaller than traditional storage tank water heaters, also reduce your home’s energy usage over the long term for extended energy and water savings. If it’s time for water heater replacement in your Orem home, Parley’s PPM Plumbing can help you determine whether a tankless water heater is the right purchase for you.
How Tankless Water Heaters Save Money
Installing a tankless water heater can help you save money in many ways, offering excellent returns on this home plumbing investment.
- A storage tank water heater maintains a reservoir of hot water ready for use at all times. To do this, storage water heaters continually add heat as it is lost to the cooler environment outside the tank. By contrast, tankless water heaters only heat water while it is in use and shut off when the tap is closed. This limits energy usage to only the times when you need hot water, rather than a continual use of energy throughout the day.
- Tankless water heaters last much longer than storage tank water heaters. A typical storage tank water heater will last 10-15 years before it requires replacement. However, a tankless water heater can last 25 years or more with proper maintenance before replacement is needed. The less often you replace your water heater, the more money you’ll save and the greater the value you’ll receive from your initial investment.
Choosing the Right Tankless Water Heater
Like all other appliances, tankless water heaters are defined by several characteristics and ratings. Choosing the right product for your home will ensure you get the performance you expect and the energy savings you want.

- Tankless water heaters deliver hot water at a specific flow rate, measured in gallons per minute. You’ll want to choose a tankless water heater that can deliver enough hot water flow for any tasks you may want to complete, especially if you want hot water in multiple places at once.
- Temperature rise measures the difference between the temperature of incoming water and the temperature of the hot water you want from your tap. This value can change depending on where your water originates and the weather outside, as well as your preferred hot water temperature.
- Tankless water heaters are available as electric or gas-powered units. Choosing a unit that uses the same energy source as your previous water heater can help you reduce installation costs.
