What is a tankless water heater? Is it more efficient than traditional tank-type water heaters?
Tired of running out of hot water? Want to reduce your energy bill? Both are possible with the installation of a tankless hot water heater. The way most households currently heat water is incredibly wasteful. We fill up 40 to 50 gallon storage tanks and then pour energy into them continuously to make sure we have hot water whenever we want it. But often it doesn’t work that way, if the tank empties, due to a long shower, etc., it can take a long time to reheat. Tankless water heaters only generate hot water when you need it, saving 25-50% in fuel costs over tank-type heaters. Additionally, most tank water heaters generally fail in 8 to 12 years, while gas burning tankless water heaters should operate for 20 years or more.
