Tankless Water Heaters Offer Big Savings

Are you tired of running out of hot water? Have you replaced your hot water tank and it still doesn’t seem to be keeping up with your family's demands? You are not alone. Many people find that a hot water heater is not sufficient for the demands of their home. From dishes to laundry and all the showers that are needed in a day, there is a good amount of strain put on these heaters. If you are scheduling showers to make sure everyone has enough hot water there is a solution for you, a tankless hot water heater. Tankless water heaters are called many things, but hot water on demand is a good term to describe these units. They take up little space and heat the water as it is needed. One of their major advantages is the energy savings they provide. Going from a hot water heater that seems to drain energy resources to a tankless version will be night and day difference on the water bill.

These heaters have the ability to heat the water as it is being used with its high powered heaters. Rather than running constantly, it only runs when the hot water is in use, this results in nearly a 20 percent savings in energy costs. A traditional hot water tank runs constantly to keep its large capacity filled; this causes a waste in energy.

Like a typical water heater, the tankless varieties can be powered by gas, electric or propane. Depending on which method of heat one chooses can also give additional savings. A traditional tank goes by how many gallons it holds, but a tankless version goes by how many gallons per minute it can warm. When purchasing these units, it is important to make sure and know how many gallons can be warmed per minute and compares that to how many gallons the household uses. Professionals can help determine how many gallons the household uses and pick the right unit for that home. One thing is for certain, a tankless heater is convenient and extremely efficient for the home.
