Why Buy Tankless
Below are a few of the many reasons why going tankless is a smart move.
Did you know that you’re probably paying $50.00 or more per month simply to maintain the heat in a tank type water heater? Why? Because the tank looses its heat up the flue and then reheats, even while you’re sleeping or at work. We call this standby heat loss.
Do you use hot water mostly in the mornings and evenings and frequently run out of hot water in the middle of a shower? With a tankless water heating system you can overcome the shortages of tank water heaters. Tankless water heaters never run out of hot water. Some models can even keep up with two showers at the same time indefinitely.
Rising energy prices require changes in the way we heat our domestic hot water. Because they only use energy when hot water is being used, tankless water heaters will likely save you more money over their expected life of 20 years than they will cost you initially. Besides energy efficiency, tankless water heaters take up less space, are easy to maintain, and are more convenient to operate.
Highly customizable venting. Some tankless water heaters can be vented horizontally and others can be vented vertically into the existing chimney. Most new tankless water heaters have computer-monitored safety devices and automatic water and gas valves. Tankless water heaters offer more flexibility in terms of possible applications and save space. Some can be used in boats, mobile homes and RV’s, radiant heating systems.
Return on investment. The payback period for tankless water heaters is 3 to 7 years depending on how much hot water you use and the cost of energy in your area. The smaller the amount of hot water that you use, the faster the payoff. If you are single and are seldom at home using hot water, your energy bill reflects the low consumption because tankless water heaters do not experience standby heat loss.
The expected life of a tankless water heater is 20 years or more. We have customers who have used their tankless water heaters for more than 20 years and are still using them because tankless water heaters are serviceable.
If you have a tank, then you are limited to 40 gallons of hot water per hour. That’s barely enough for a 20 minute shower in one hour time period and you still have to pay for standby loss, which can be up 15-20% of the energy bill!
Tankless water heaters are 80-99% energy efficient. When the water heater is actually used to heat the water, tank type water heaters are 40% to 60% energy efficient (the rest of the energy is spent to heat the exhaust and walls of the tank!), while tankless water heaters are 80% (gas) to 99% (electric) efficient. When you don’t use hot water, you can save up to 15%-20% of your energy bill with tankless water heaters, because tank type water heaters are subject to standby heat loss.
