Why You Should Consider Installing A Tankless Water Heater In Your Home
A tankless water heater allows you to have an endless supply of hot water while saving you money, all the while being less of a drain on the environment because it uses less energy.
Tankless water heaters keep you from ever having to suffer through a cold shower again. Even if two showers are running at the same time in your house, or the dishwasher is running while you shower, you will have hot water for the entirety of your shower! How is that possible? Because with a tankless water heater, the water is only heated when you need it. This way, it is instantly heated. You are not receiving water that has been heated and sitting in a tank with a finite amount available. No, the water is heated in that instant, only using energy when necessary.
How does it work? The water is sent through a heat exchanger. This heats the water quickly. Europe has been using tankless water heaters for 25 years, but this energy efficient technology is only now being utilized in the United States.
The tankless water heater is over than 20% more efficient than a gas-fired storage tank model! This saves you money on your energy bill each year. And because there is no need to keep a large tank of water heated, on standby, the tankless water heater does not waste energy, which is good for the environment. In fact, because of this energy savings, there are some tax credits and rebates available for replacing an old water heater with a new tankless one. The government put the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act into effect in 2009, and you simply need to fill out an IRS form for your taxes.
So why not consider installing one of these energy efficient water heaters into your home today? Your family, and the environment, will thank you!
