A Brief Rundown of the Titan Water Heater

The Titan water heater is a tankless water heater and is used to provide hot water on demand. As the name suggests, it will heat up water without the need for a storage tank.

How a Tankless Heater Works

The device warms up water as you need it, and instead of storing water in a tank before heating it, the instantaneous heater warms it up as the water flows through the device. The device is connected to a main water supply, and it warms up only as much as you need each time. This means significant savings in electricity costs, as no hot water is wasted, and it does not have to be stored in a separate tank. The Titan also provides hot water faster than traditional tank heaters because you will not have to wait for a whole tank to fill up before you can start to use warm water in the house, becoming immediately available to a hot water dispenser, shower, or any other point of use device.

Installing the Heater

The Titan tankless water heater, sometimes also called instantaneous water heater, is connected to the main water supply and is installed directly on a wall. You will need to have access to a power source, and there should be around 12 inches of space both below and above the device. Often the Titan is installed in the space that used to hold a water tank. It is always best to get a professional plumber to install it to avoid any damages.

Up to 4 gallons of water can pass through Titan tankless water heaters in a minute, depending on the exact model; some models can only heat up just less than 2 gallons every minute. You can adjust the water’s temperature to make sure it does not get too hot. The water heats up immediately and you can get as much or as little water as you need each time.

Tips for Buying a Titan

One of the main things to consider before purchasing a tankless heater is the required water flow rate. You should estimate how much hot water you need at any given time, and use this information to determine the best brand and model for your household. You should also pay attention to the energy factor, which is used to measure the heater’s energy efficiency. The higher the energy factor is the more effective the heater will be. It is always best to discuss your needs with a professional sales advisor to make sure you get a model that best suits the needs of your household.
