Atascadero, CA (PRWEB) February 05, 2016
There are two main types of water heaters: tank and tankless. While each has their pros and cons, the type chosen is almost entirely up to personal preference. However, tankless water heaters are kind of a sensitive subject for plumbers and contractors, the reason being that nowadays most homeowners and people looking to buy a home are interested in energy efficiency.
Water heaters are one of the more costly appendages on a home energy bill, accounting for nearly 30-percent of the average energy bill. However, in some cases, the percentage of energy expenses for water heating can go up to 40 and even 50-percent, so it makes perfect sense to want to reduce the cost by switching to a more energy efficient alternative. So in the event that the heating cost becomes 40 to 50-percent of the bill, these energy conserving hot water solutions can significantly increase the savings to the overall energy bill. Today, Atascadero water heater company First Call Plumbing has issued a report explaining the precise benefits of switching to a tankless water heater.
1. They are energy efficient. One of the most commonly discussed benefits of tankless water heaters is that they use significantly less energy than units with tanks, around 30 to 50-percent less energy in fact, which can save a typical family about $100 a year depending on water usage. The reason for this is that tankless units only heat water when the faucet is turned on, and generally operate on propane or gas, which can also save the expense of keeping a 40 to 50 gallon tank of water hot in a storage tank, which saves more energy.
2. They are reliable. If a unit is properly sized, it can effortlessly deliver a steady supply of water at preset temperature levels. This could be as much as 5 to 7 gallons of hot water per minute; they simply don’t run out of water.
3. Substantially longer life expectancy compared to units with tanks. The average life expectancy of a tankless heating unit can be as much as 20 years, an additional five to ten years more than units with tanks. However, this does mean that they are more costly upfront than units with tanks, but it will be worth it in the long run.
