Tankless Water Heaters
San Francisco Plumbing areas – Tank less Water Heaters are designed to heat water as you need it, which means that everyone in your family will be able to use hot water anytime on demand. How is this possible? Well, whenever somebody turns on the hot water faucet, the tank less water heater springs into action. Cold water flows into the heater and is instantly heated by copper and brass water ways known as exchangers. The result is endless hot water in a matter of seconds!
The hot water temperature is set by you and will always remain the same, which should eliminate any incidences of burns or scalding water. When the members of your family are finished using the hot water, the tank less water heater will shut down until it is needed again. As you can see, this system is far more efficient than standard storage tank water heaters. Tank less water heaters also last longer than storage tank water heaters.
Aside from being more space effective (most units are a quarter of the size of conventional heaters), tank less water heaters also provide unobstructed heat transfer. Why is this? Because water is not actually stored in a tanked heater, mineral build-up does not occur. This enables a tank less water heater to perform at the highest level for upwards of 25 years or more.
Electric Hybrid (heat pump) Hot Water Heaters in San Francisco Plumbing A new San Francisco
Plumbing, area Hybrid Water Heater is a combination of a heat pump and an electric tank water
heater. The electric elements in the tank merely serve as a backup for times when the demand for hot
water is high.
A heat pump is a highly efficient, ecofriendly device that can be used in both space heating and water heating. It heats water by extracting heat from the surrounding air and transferring the heat to water in a tank. It does not create heat but simply moves the heat from the air to the water. A heat pump can even operate effectively when the air temperature is as low as 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
It works like a refrigerator or air conditioner in reverse. A fan pulls ambient air over evaporator coils, where the heat from the air is transferred to a refrigerant. The heated refrigerant is then pumped through a compressor. Compression of the refrigerant intensifies the heat, causing the refrigerant to vaporize. The superheated vapor then passes through copper condenser coils that wrap around the inside of the tank. As the hot vapor circulates through the coils its heat is transferred to the water.
