Tankless Water Heaters
With the increasing cost of energy these days, it is becoming more and more economical to install the latest technology in water heating.
The tankless water heater has been around now for over 10 years and the systems have proven their cost saving benefits as well as their reliability. With potential savings over 50% on your current water heating bill, a new tankless water heater can virtually pay for itself within 2-5 years.
Many customers while remodeling their homes, decide to install the tankless water heater, which in some cases saves them time, depending on the home remodeling which is being performed.
Here are some things to consider before deciding on a tankless water heater:
* Is the distance between the fixtures you will be supplying and the location of the current water heater itself a long distance? For example if you have a larger home that utilizes a recirculating pump system you may need more than one tankless water heater to replace your current water heater.
* Make sure the tankless water heater will handle the capacity you need. It is always better to oversize the tankless water heater so you will not run out of hot water when needed.
* Make sure the warranty of your tankless water heater is at least 5 years. It may take this long to realize the cost savings.
Another benefit of the tankless water heater is unlimited hot water on demand.
For those of you who have teenagers this benefit could be good or bad. While taking a shower for example you will never run out of hot water.
