Save Energy Costs with Tankless Water Heaters

by Barbara Jennings, CRS/CSS

Can you believe your gas and electric bills? With rising prices for energy, heating water has become very expensive. Even with a moderate sized home, gas bills and electric bills are soaring, costing homeowners hundreds of dollars each month. So it might be time to look at tankless water heaters, which offer a reliable, energy efficient solution to high gas bills. But there are other advantages as well over the typical water heater.

You see, conventional water heaters heat the water inside your storage tank on a continuous basis. It's that constant use of energy that keeps your bill so high. In contrast, tankless water heaters heat your water on demand rather than heating it 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Homeowners are experiencing a savings of up to 50% on their gas bill by using this highly efficient alternative.

On top of that, tankless water heaters use 50% less fossil fuel and release less dangerous NOx emissions. They are more powerful than the average water heater too, yet remaining fuel efficient.

One basic unit can provide hot water for up to three showers simultaneously without ever running cold. If you have multiple bathrooms, this is important. No one has to rush to get up and beat the others to the shower to get the hot water.

Tankless water heaters also take up less space as they are 1/5th the size of a regular tank. This makes them more aesthetically pleasing to your home too. You can even relocate them outdoors or in your attic or basement. Here in California we're tight on space, so this is appealing to us.

Safety Issues

Naturally safety is a key issue. If your current water heater is indoors, there's always a risk of it leaking and damaging your home and your valuables. I've already experienced this as mine is in my garage and I store lots of things in my garage. By eliminating the water tank altogether, you eliminate all risk of a flooding from a water tank, no matter where it is.

Accurate Temperature Settings

These types of heaters also have highly accurate temperature settings. Compare this with the fact that tank heaters have temperature fluxuations of up to 15 degrees. So with a tankless water heater, you also reduce or elimiante the chances of scalding children and seniors.

So if you're interested in dependable and long-lasting technology giving you years of convenient and hassle-free hot water, consider putting in a tankless water heater. Noritz is one brand and there are others. A google search on the internet should provide you with sources and service.
