The energy savings are significant, because tankless water heaters only heat water on when needed
Charlotte, NC (Vocus) October 7, 2010
Having to purchase a new water heater can be an unwanted surprise to any family and the Charlotte plumbers at Ben Franklin Plumbing in Charlotte understand that. That’s why they have posted information on their website to help consumers understand the tax savings and benefits.
By helping educate the consumer in purchasing the right equipment the Charlotte Plumbing Company is helping consumers make their homes more energy efficient without it being as big as a financial burden.
Consumers can conserve energy and save money by replacing old water heaters.
Some of the higher efficiency items included in the U.S. Economic Stimulus Plan are water heaters, central air conditioners, furnaces, boilers and air source heat pumps. Consumers get a tax credit of up to 30 percent of the total cost, which includes the product and installation, with a maximum credit of $1,500.
In order to take advantage of the incentives, Ben Franklin Plumbing Charlotte technicians can install tankless water heaters, which only heat water when needed. For example, tanklesss water heaters provide heated water instantaneously when taking a shower. Once the water is turned off, the unit does not run.
“The energy savings are significant, because tankless water heaters only heat water on when needed “says an industry expert. “Tankless water heaters are also a great way to conserve water and go green.”
Unlike traditional water heaters, tankless ones are small in size and can be installed on a wall. Consumers have until the end of 2010 to have the work done and claim the tax credit.
