Whether you are looking for an energy efficient water heating solution for a new house, or looking at repairing or replacing an old hot water storage tank, this is an ideal time to review your options.
Before you rush into fixing your old unit or buying a new hot water storage tank, take a minute to consider switching to a tankless water heater. There are many reasons why tankless water heaters are a sensible solution.
Save on Energy Costs
With rising gas and electricity costs, who wants to heat up a whole tank of water and have it sitting all day, continually cooling and requiring reheating?
A tankless water heater provides heated water on demand. In other words, it heats the water only as and when you need it. Tankless water heaters avoid the energy losses associated with storage tanks that keep hot water on standby. This is because tankless water heaters only use electricity or gas when the hot water is flowing or the tap is turned on.
Using a tankless water heater will typically result in saving 20 – 70% off your energy bill.
Hot Water That Never Runs Out
With tankless water heaters you won’t run out of hot water any more, like you do with water storage tanks where you need to wait while the whole tank reheats. Whenever you need more hot water, you have it, instantly!
More and more people are realizing the importance of caring for our environment. Careless wasting of resources and energy is destroying our planet. It’s a waste of energy to heat all the water in a storage tank if you probably won’t use most of it.
Rebates & Tax Credits
Some governments and utility companies are now providing incentives to people to change to environmentally-friendly water heating systems.
Some major metro area utility companies are offering rebates for installation of a tankless water heater. You will need to check with your utility company.
And some governments will provide you with an Energy Tax Credit.
So if you are looking for a water solution that’s really hot, go tankless.
