Want to Save on Your Hot Water Bills? Consider a Tankless Water Heater

Date Added: May 30, 2014 09:36:53 PM
The tankless water heater is one of the newest developments in plumbing, and is today a hot topic in home improvement, receiving hundreds of thousands of Google searches every month.

The tankless water heater, as the name suggests, heats up water and does not store the heated water in a storage tank. This system can be called “hot water on demand”: whenever you turn on the hot tap, it only heats up the exact amount of water you need at the time, while tank-type water heaters will heat up a whole tank of water every time you turn on the hot water faucet. Heating up only the amount of water you need at the time obviously uses less power (gas or electricity) and saves you money on your utility bills. Tankless water heaters may cost more going in, but the savings on utility bills are enormous, and the system usually pays for itself in a very short time.

Another distinct advantage of the tankless water heater is that you never run out of hot water. With the tank type of heater, once you’ve used up all the water that has been heated up in the tank, you are now out of hot water and will have to wait until a new tankful is heated up. With a tankless system, you continue to get hot water as long as you run the hot water faucet.

Tankless water heaters take up a lot less space than traditional tank-type systems. They can be concealed in a small cupboard or closet. And they can be located right next to your sink, tub or shower, rather than hidden in the basement.

Tankless water heaters may be powered by either gas or electricity. It is suggested that you use the same type of power for your tankless water heater as you do for your kitchen/bathroom appliances: if you have a gas stove or gas water heater, stay with gas power for your tankless water heater.- If you need a tanks-less water heater to be installed, call the professionals at Mr Speedy Plumbing & Rooter Inc.
