If you’ve ever raced to the shower during your morning routine only to be the last person in line and withstood an icy shower, you’ve experienced hot water loss due to an old or faulty hot water heater. End those early morning ice baths with a tankless water heater and relax in a warm shower. Now that’s the right way to start the day!
The home improvement market, eco-conscious, and cost-cutting audiences are all buzzing about tankless water heaters and their amazing technology. Much smaller than your average water heater and install right on the wall. Typical sizes are 15″ x 15″ and 15″ x 10″ freeing up valuable storage space where that old clunker of a hot water heater used to rest. Tankless water systems provide literally endless warm water for showers, laundry, dishes, and even heating your home. Those looking to upgrade their hot water heating appliance like the sound of endless hot water and the end of short, timed showers and rushed morning or evening routines afforded by tankless water heating technology. With tankless hot water heaters you’ll also be able to multi-task household chores like running the dishwasher and the washing machine while you’re showering. No more mad dashes to be the first in line for warm water! Eco-conscious and those looking to save money on energy bills are installing tankless water heaters because they can save up to 25% or more on monthly water heating bills. These water heaters use less energy and cost less to operate; it’s a no-brainer.
You may be curious about this product and wonder how exactly a tankless water heater works, and how can such a small device provide endless water yet save you money? Tankless water heaters operate only when you turn on the faucet, whereas typical older-style hot water systems store gallons and gallons of water in the tank and constantly run to keep it warm. When you’re not using hot water, the system is not working or pulling energy to heat water thereby saving you huge costs on your energy bills. And because these units are idle when the household is not using water, they’re safer to operate and require less maintenance than tank-style water heaters. In the event of a leak, most tankless water heaters will alert the owner with an alarm so a quick response can nip a potentially large problem right in the bud.
If you’re looking to make a home improvement that will save you money on energy bills while decreasing your environmental impact, tankless water heaters are a worthwhile investment of your time and money. Settle the fight over hot water once and for all by never having to worry about it again because you have an endless supply. Upgrade your old tank-style water heater and reap the rewards that tankless styles provide.
