How To Choose The Right Tankless Water Heater?
Tankless water heaters are rated by the maximum temperature rise possible at a given flow rate. Therefore, to size an on-demand water heater, you need to determine the flow rate and the temperature rise you’ll need. For example a house with 2-bathrooms will require a bigger tankless water heater than a two-bathroom condo due to it's size. It is important to note that you should never try and save money by undersizing your tankless water heater.
- Determine the maximum devices you want to run.
For example, let’s say you expect to simultaneously run a hot water faucet with a flow rate of 0.75 gallons per minute and a shower head with a flow rate of 2.6 gallons per minute. The flow rate through the demand water heater would need to be at least 3.26 gallons per minute. To reduce flow rates, install low-flow water fixtures.
- Your climate makes a difference.
If you live in a warm climate your water temperature will likely be much higher.) For most uses, you’ll want your water heated to around 105–115°. In this example, you’d need a demand water heater that produces a temperature rise of 55°.
- Gas Vs Electric
Gas tankless water heaters are able to produce a larger temperature rise per gpm than electric models. Most demand water heaters are rated for a variety of inlet temperatures. Typically, a 70°F water temperature rise is possible at a flow rate of 5 gallons per minute through gas-fired demand water heaters and 2 gallons per minute through electric water heaters. Faster flow rates or cooler inlet temperatures can sometimes reduce the water temperature at the most distant faucet.

What Is A Tankless Water Heater Flush?
It is recommended that you should get your tankless water heater flushed out once a year. That’s enough to clear out any sediment or mineral buildup that can clog the filter or the hose.
Over time, a tankless water heater may accumulate mineral build-up which can erode the walls inside your tank's heating chamber. To properly maintain and clean your tankless water heater, it’s important to flush those mineral deposits.
