Want to Reduce Your Monthly Bills?
In most homes, when you turn the faucet to hot to wash the dishes or take a shower, that hot water comes from a standard tank water heater. With this kind of water heater, hot water is pre-heated in the tank and is ready whenever you need it. This traditional model isn’t the only way to get hot water, though. If you’re looking to save money on those pesky monthly bills you should consider switching to a [tankless water heater]1 system.
In a tankless water heater system, water is heated on demand when – and only when – you need it. You turn on the faucet and water flows through the pipe into a unit that heats the water. The water will not be at the desired temperature instantaneously, but it will quickly heat. Since the water isn’t coming from a size-limited tank of pre-heated water, there is never the risk of running out of hot water. However, it can be difficult to attempt two or more hot water tasks at once, such as showering and running the dishwasher. This is can be remedied by installing more than one tankless unit, perhaps one per major appliance that uses hot water. You can also just be careful to schedule your tasks needing hot water at times that don’t interfere with one another.
Tankless water heaters save you money because they are significantly more energy efficient than their tanked counterparts. With energy savings of 30% or more each year, the average American household can anticipate annual savings of $70-100 or more. The larger upfront cost of a tankless water heater is made up for by the gain in energy efficiency and the reduction of water bills. A savings of $70-100 per year adds up year after year, and can make a huge difference. Another bonus to the tankless water heater is its longevity. Tankless systems generally last longer, with an average life expectancy of more than 20 years, and have easily replaceable parts that can extend the lifetime even longer.
