Tankless Water Heaters

shower-blog

Tired of seeing your FPL bill go up and up and up?

Tankless water heaters offer an endless supply of hot water, so you never have to take a cold shower and, by instantly heating only the water you need, when you need it, these suitcase-sized units save more than just space - they save energy, which means you save money!

With traditional, tank-style water heaters, you’re filling a 50-gallon storage tank, then paying to keep all that water hot, 24 hours a day, every day of the year, whether you’re using it or not. That accounts for about 15% of your electric bill, or $400 to $600/year for the average household.

Tankless water heaters, also known as on-demand or instant water heaters, generate hot water only when you need it, for as long as you need it, making them 24% to 34% more energy efficient than conventional storage tank water heaters, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.

Tankless water heaters also last more than 20 years on average, that’s twice as long as a “storage” water heater, so you’re saving money in the long run too! Plus, there’s no risk of a catastrophic water leak because there’s no tank to fail, and they cost a lot less than a solar water heater.

So what’s the downside?

In the past, installation of these units was complicated and costly, but recent design improvements have made it easier than ever to switch from a conventional, “storage” water heater to an energy-saving tankless model. Many of the top manufacturers even offer tankless units that will work with existing 1/2-inch gas lines, making retrofit installations faster and cheaper than before.

Older tankless units also had trouble keeping a steady flow of hot water, but newer models have addressed this by adding a recirculation pump that ensures that the water comes out hot from the very beginning and stays hot for as long as it is running, so you no longer have to worry about that. One Rinnai® unit can deliver over 240 gallons of hot water in one hour with no recovery time!

If your water heater is more than 10 years old, consider switching to a compact, ultra-efficient tankless water heater; the recent changes in technology and design have made them a great option!
