Should I Switch to a Tankless Water Heater?

water heater installation new hampshireYou use about 65 gallons of hot water every day in your bath, shower, sinks, clothes washer, and dishwasher. The question is why would you heat more than that if you don’t plan to use it?

With a tankless propane water heater, you’ll heat only the water you need: the moment you turn on your dishwasher or open the hot water tap, cool water is sent through a powerful heat exchanger in your water heater, which instantly raises its temperature. By operating this way, your tankless system completely avoids standby heat loss – the energy used to keep the water hot when it’s not being used.

Tankless Water Heater Benefits

Here are four of the biggest benefits of tankless systems:

  1. Unlimited hot water – Say goodbye to cold showers – or to having to wait to shower until the washing machine or dishwasher finishes its cycle.
  2. Lower bills – With no pilot light and no standby heat loss, you could cut your monthly bills by as much as 30 percent.
  3. More space – With no storage tank, a tankless system is about the size of a suitcase. It can even be wall-mounted, which saves precious floor space and allows for installation in crawl spaces, attics, and other tight spaces.
