Tankless Water Heaters

Going green...everybody is doing it.  Energy efficiency is all the rage as builders continually try to one-up each other with lots of different strategies and changes to the quality they include.  What used to be an upgrade in many instances is now a standard feature.

But what if you aren't in the market for a new home?  Does that mean you're left out in the cold when it comes to energy efficiency?  Not at all.  There is actually a fairly easy upgrade that you can do that will greatly improve your energy efficiency and make your home a little more comfortable...install a tankless water heater.

Stop heating water when you don't need to.

By heating water only when you need it, a tankless water heater can cut water heating expenses by as much as 30%, while also providing continuous hot water delivery.  By going green and installing a tankless water heater, you'll be helping the environment while keeping a little green in your pocket!

The tankless water heater applies the same principles to heat water as a standard water heater, only without the storage tank.  Water is heated only when it is needed, thus eliminating energy lost during storage and saving you money.

How much green are we talking about?

While the numbers will vary depending on the family, on average a family of 4 can expect to save about $180/year.  Not a bad savings when you consider that money is being spent on water you aren't even using.  There is also a tax credit you can get just for installing one of these efficient puppies!  You can receive a tax credit of up to $1500.  There's a little more green you can save.  Prices on units vary, but the payback timeframe can be as low as five years.  Gas units are a little more expensive than electric ones, but they are also less expensive to operate.

If you would like to learn more about tankless water heaters or want to find out how much it would cost to have one installed just give us a call.  We work with several trusted plumbers who will be happy to answer any and all of your questions.  Here's to saving the environment and your hard earned money!
