The Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters
Whether showering, doing laundry or washing dishes, we all use hot water during the course of our daily lives. However, none of us actually use hot water 24 hours a day. So what happens to that full tank of hot water that's waiting for you? It just sits there while your standard tank-type water heater consumes energy around the clock to keep the water hot and ready for use.
Since heating your home’s water accounts for up to 16% of the average home's annual energy budget, any waste of hot water is a waste of your money. Although many think immediate availability of hot water is what’s most important, let’s face it – standard tank-type heaters are just not efficient. But don’t despair, there’s another option that offers you hot water on demand with less waste of water and your hard-earned energy dollars.
Gas tankless water heaters offer comfort, energy efficiency and convenience while conserving gas, one of our vital natural resources, and your cash flow. Since it heats water only when needed, these units reduce or totally eliminate standby losses. That means you get to keep more of your energy dollars right where they belong – in your pocket!
