Tankless Water Heaters Can Lower Your Energy Bills
When it comes to choosing a water heater for your home or business, there is no one-size fits all solution. While traditional water heaters are still the predominant design in use, new efficient state-of-the-art tankless water heaters can sometimes be the best choice. In a tankless system, water is heated instantly as it passes through the unit. Propane, natural gas, or electricity is used to create hot water on demand. Energy prices in California will continue to rise steadily in the years ahead. Tankless water heaters are more energy efficient, and cost less to operate.
Heat Water When You Need It – Not When You Don’t
A typical 50-60 gallon water heater uses gas or electricity to continuously keep a supply of hot water stored for use. Keeping this stored water hot, even when you don’t need it, costs homeowners money and taxes energy resources. Modern tankless water heaters only heat water when you need it. As a result, these on-demand tankless water heater systems cost less to run. Some of our tankless water heaters, have whole house re-circulating pumps, so you don’t have to wait more than a couple seconds to have hot water at your faucet.
Tankless Water Heaters Take Up Less Space.
Traditional hot water tanks are unsightly and can take up a lot of room. Most are hidden away in basements or closets, often depleting valuable storage space. A tankless water heater’s small footprint can provide an elegant solution to this problem. Whole house water heating systems mount on your wall and can fit into tight spaces. Multiple tankless units can be positioned in different rooms to make the most efficient use of space in your home.
Up Front Costs
While pricing and inital costs can be higher on tankless systems, they typically have a longer lifespan than storage heaters. Conventional water heaters usually last 10-15 years. A tankless system is expected to last 20+ years. Parts for tankless heaters can be easily replaced and installed, extending unit life even longer.
