Is a Tankless Water Heater Right for You?

The United States Department of Energy reported that water heating is the third largest homeowner expense, accounting for up to 25% of a home’s utility expense. This large cost can be greatly reduced by implementing a tankless water heater.

Tankless water heaters are becoming the norm in plumbing, due to their increased efficiency. While a typical storage water heater maintains the temperature of up to 50 gallons of water, a tankless heater heats water only as needed. As cold water enters the unit, it is quickly heated to a preset temperature.  Storage tank water heaters are constantly running to keep a supply of hot water. Replacing your old water heater with a tankless heater will conserve energy and there will be no more unnecessary heating. Making this kind of switch can cut water usage and water heating bills by up to 50%!

Typically tankless heaters mount on a wall, taking up much less pace than a storage heater. The compact design leaves you with more room in your basement or utility room. One major advantage of tankless water heaters is that they can prevent running out of hot water, you will no longer need to suffer through a cold shower. You don’t have to worry about showering while you are running the washer, because you won’t run out of hot water! Another major advantage of a tankless water heater is the elimination of storage tank leaks. When a water leak occurs it can significantly damage your home. Tankless water heaters eliminate this risk.
