Next time you take a look at your energy bill, bear this in mind: almost
one third of the money you’re paying goes toward heating water.
the U.S. Energy Information Agency, the average energy bill for a U.S. consumer is $111.08, so your water
heater may be costing you dearly. A simple appliance upgrade could cut
those costs significantly by the time your next bill comes up. Read on
for a look at the benefits of installing a tankless water heater.
A traditional heater works by storing water, and heating it constantly,
even when you’re not using it. This accounts for the high energy
cost. A tankless water heater only draws power when you are using it to
get hot water. In a tankless water heater, water from your water main
runs through a set of heating coils and is instantly brought up to the
temperature you want for showers, baths, or dish washing.
Conventional water heater tanks take up a great deal of space, whether
in a utility closet, a garage, or just outside the house. These bulky
tanks also have to be looked after, as they are prone to rusting and leaking.
You can provide a whole house with plenty of hot water from a tankless
heater that is the size of a suitcase. Think of all that free closet space!
Never run out of hot water
Anyone who grew up with siblings knows that there is only so much hot water
in a traditional water heater. When that water runs out, you have to wait
for the tank to refill with cool water and heat back up to a satisfactory
temperature. Tankless water heaters heat the water instantly as it enters
the house. As long as you have water coming in, you can have hot water
for your shower.
Tankless water heaters increase both cost savings and convenience. If you live in Sacramento
