Like any other homeowner, you’re probably looking for ways to save money throughout the house, whether that means adjusting the thermostat, or installing high-efficiency appliances. Hot water is undoubtedly one of the most important features of the modern home, and you don’t want to have to sacrifice that hot shower just to save a few bucks. But there is a middle way: with a tankless water heater, you can significantly reduce the amount of energy that you spend on a daily basis, thereby cutting down on your energy costs.
What Is a Tankless Water Heater?
You may be curious as to where your hot water would come from if not from a large storage tank. A conventional tank water heater operates by sending cold water to the bottom of the tank where it is brought to temperature by an electrical heating element or gas-powered burner. A tankless system avoids this entirely by utilizing a high-efficiency heat exchanger that heats your hot water supply on-demand. As you can imagine, this cuts down on the amount of energy needed to maintain the temperature for dozens of gallons of hot water.
Why Make the Switch?
Still, you may be skeptical about whether this system can handle your hot water needs. After all, if you’ve got a family and multiple appliances that use hot water, then you need your hot water not only to be energy efficient, but also bountiful. Depending on your needs, you may need more than a single tankless system. Obviously, hiring a professional technician makes all the difference, as we’ll be able to tell you exactly what you may need in terms of hot water capacity.
Hire a Pro for Your Tankless Water Heater Installation
It’s critical that you rely on professional technicians to take care of your new tankless system installation, particularly if you want to make certain that your latest addition to the home is safe to operate. These systems require technical expertise and experience, not only in terms of selecting an appropriately sized system, but also of course for the integration of that system into your plumbing system.
