We rarely stop to think about what it takes to get warm water in the house until are without it. Your home’s water heating system is mainly responsible for your constant supply of hot water. Economic studies show that having hot water on demand can account for as much as 30% of your energy costs. You can reduce your electricity costs by installing a tankless water heater. Tankless water heaters are all the rave right now because of the benefits you get from using them. These benefits include an endless supply of hot water, maneuverability, saving space & energy efficiency. Perhaps the most important advantage of tankless water heaters is the luxury of enjoying a hot shower, even if you’re the last one in.
As the name implies, tankless water heaters are designed without a tank to store water. This is good news however, as you not only save space, but you also reduce the risk of flooding. Tankless water heaters work by heating water on demand, unlike conventional water heaters that continuously heat and store large amounts of water in a large tank. This makes it the most energy-efficient water heating option available today. Tankless water heaters use less energy to heat up water, making them environmentally friendly. Also, because tankless water heaters come without a tank to store water, there’s no risk of harmful bacteria developing, which means you get fresh, clean water every time you turn your faucet on!
In terms of operation, there are two major types of tankless water heaters, gas, and electric. When you practice proper maintenance culture, tankless water heaters rarely develop problems.
