Need a new water heater?
Choosing a water heater is an important task for a homeowner. There are many details to consider including energy efficiency, cost and convenience.
Tankless water heaters, sometimes called demand water heaters, can be an excellent investment and a worthwhile addition to a home. Tankless water heaters use far less energy thank their tank style counterparts. Because of this benefit, the homeowner qualifies for a $300 tax rebate the year a tankless water heater is purchased. Also because these water heaters require less energy, the homeowner will save up to 20% on energy bills. Over time this can add up to significant savings, and the water heater can end up paying for itself.
Another benefit of choosing a tankless water heater is that while other water heaters can run out of hot water, a tankless water heater cannot. This allows homeowners to take hot showers and run dishwashers and washing machines without worrying that there will not be enough hot water. Also it can last up to 10 years longer then a regular water heater, saving the homeowner the expense and hassle of replacing the water heating unit.
Tankless water heaters are safer than water heaters with tanks. Regular water heaters can burst, causing flooding and damage to a home. Tankless water heaters cannot. Also they can be placed in a small area in a closet, on the wall or even outside. They can be operated by remote control, which can be a great convenience to the homeowner.
A professional can easily install a tankless water heater and make determinations such as the venting needs required and the best place to put the water heating unit to gain the optimal energy savings.
Tankless water heaters can be a perfect choice for a homeowner and can lead to impressive savings in both money and energy use. It is something every homeowner should consider.
