What is a Tankless Water Heater?
A tankless water heater only heats water when you need it. So you get an endless source of hot water, while also saving money on energy costs by not heating and reheating the same tank of water. When opening a hot water tap or starting the dishwasher, the tankless water heater recognizes the need for hot water and starts the heating process. When the demand for hot water stops the unit shuts down. You always have clean, hot water when you want it for as long as you need it! Tankless water heaters produce more hot water using less energy than the most efficient storage tank style heater. It saves energy, saves space and saves you money.
1. Endless Hot Water
A tankless water heater heats the water you need, when you need it, turning any water source into hot water on demand. You are not limited to the amount a storage tank heater can hold. Whether you are washing the dishes, washing your clothes, or drawing a hot bath, the tankless water heater technology will supply endless hot water to your lifestyle demands-even if you do them all at once!
2. Save energy and money
You don’t use hot water 24-hours a day. Yet a standard tank-type water heater consumes energy round the clock to keep the water in its tank hot. By heating water only when you need it, tankless water heaters save the typical family more than $100 per year on gas bills compared to a standard storage model. Larger families can save even more.
Tankless water heaters have a typical life expectancy of up to 20 years, much longer than any conventional tank-type water heater. And with a tankless model, the risk of tank leaks and water damage is a thing of the past.
4. Space Savings
Traditional tank water heaters can take up to 16 square feet of valuable floor space. However, tankless water heaters are about the size of a small suitcase and can be installed on virtually any wall inside of your home. Models designed for outdoor installation free up even more space and add versatility to your basement, garage, or utility room.
5. Sustainable and “Green”
ENERGY STAR qualified gas tankless water heaters have earned ENERGY STAR approval by meeting the strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy, by using less energy and preventing greenhouse gas emissions.
Gas tankless water heaters provide hot water on demand, plus a whole lot more. Consider a qualified tankless water heater for your home and enjoy these benefits!
