[two_third]A normal Hot Water Heater accounts for 20-30% of your households yearly energy costs. Imagine a contraption the dimensions of your kitchen cabinet, heating your house and giving you a never-ending supply of drinkable hot water. Unlike “conventional” tank water heaters, tankless water heaters heat water only as it is used, or “on demand”. Opening a hot water faucet ignites the tough burners and the PC monitors the water temperature and adjusts the burners according to the requirement. High demand, high heat. Low demand, low heat.
Every year more than 7 million used tank water heaters are taken to landfills in the United States. A tankless water heater is, for the most part, recyclable, so they don’t end up in your local landfill. It is estimated that if people replaced their tank units with tankless there would be a savings of millions of gallons of oil a year, millions of gallons of propane, and billions of kilowatt hours. This is yet another reason to go tankless![/two_third][one_third_last][custom_frame_right][/custom_frame_right][/one_third_last]
Reason’s to go Tankless
- Infinite supply of hot water Never run out of hot water in the shower again.
- Kinder to the Environment Since they use less power to run, they are also kinder to the environment.
- No Standby Energy Loss Stop wasting your valuable energy heating water you are not using.
- It’s a Space Saver A regular water heater can fill up an entire closet.
- No Tank Flood Risk No risk of broken or failed tank flood in your house causing damage.
- Will last longer Because a tankless unit only runs briefly and spends the larger part of its time shutdown, they commonly last longer than traditional water heaters.

In order to make the hot water supply last, a traditional standard tank water heater heats the water up to 140 degrees, then you must use cold water to cool it down. With a tankless water heater, you set a temperature, let’s say 120 degrees, and you have the perfect temperature without wasting energy. Furthermore, since a tankless water heater has no refresh rate (it’s instantaneous), there is no need to overheat the water as with a conventional tank.
