If you’re looking for a great way to save money while helping the environment at the same time, one of the best things to consider is a tankless water heater. By going tankless, you can not only turn your utility bill into a fraction of its former self, but can also eliminate the need for a bulky, unattractive water heat taking up space in your home or business. While they are slightly more expensive than traditional heaters, most customers find the benefits of a tankless heater far outweigh the costs.
With a tankless water heater, you only use energy (and the money you pay for it) to heat water when you need it. Unlike a traditional tank, which constantly expends energy keeping a fixed supply of hot water on demand, a tankless system does not begin heating water until you need it, then shuts off when you are finished using it. This results not only in lower energy costs, but in a significantly “greener” home or business as well. Perhaps best of all, with a tankless system, there is no limit on the amount of hot water you have at your fingertips at any time- showers, dishwashing, and laundry can all be done at the same time, without no concern of “running out of hot water.” Since there is no tank, your tank is never empty, and it can never rust, scale, and contaminate your water either. And with an average life of 20 years, a tankless heater can even save you money on repairs and replacement along the way.
