Tankless water heaters are the latest development in energy-efficient plumbing. They perform the same function as conventional water heaters with the same basic mechanical parts, but what makes them so popular among energy-conscious homeowners? Take a look below to find out:
Space is always at a premium in any home, and the compact size of tankless water heaters allows you to mount them virtually anywhere in your home, inside or out. Without having to accommodate a large water reservoir in your utility room, you can put all of your home’s storage space to use. Small units can even be used in parallel to provide optimal flow rates for larger homes, or even to supplement resource-intensive appliances such as showers or dishwashers.
ENERGY STAR Approval
The average American household spends about 15 percent of its annual energy bill on water heating. A tankless water heater reduce home water heating costs by as much as 40 percent over a traditional water heater—up to $100 or more annually, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.
Lower Energy/Maintenance Costs
Although tankless water heaters pose a higher initial installation cost than traditional water heaters, they can last up to twice as long—a more realistic approach to comparing the two would be to double the cost of a traditional water heater. Because of their compact size, accessing and repairing major components in tankless water heaters is also simpler.
Higher Resale Value
Tankless water heaters are a forward-thinking solution to a common problem. By outfitting your home with a more efficient water heating system, you reduce operating costs, improve its overall efficiency, and invest in its long-term value.
These are only a few of the advantages of tankless water heaters. If you’d like more details on how a tankless system can benefit your home, browse our inventory online or contact a Wholesale Tankless, Inc. associate today at (877) 278-2253 with questions or comments.
