If the utility bills for your El Cerrito, Berkeley or Oakland area home are out of control and you’re wondering how you can start making these expenses more manageable, you should consider upgrading to a tankless water heater. Installing a tankless water heater is one way to start saving on your home’s energy costs without sacrificing home comfort.
What is a Tankless Water Heater?
Traditional water heaters use a large tank to store heated water. They then deliver that stored water to you when you turn on the hot water. So whether or not you’re actively using hot water in your home, a tanked water heater constantly requires energy to keep the water in its tank hot.
Tankless water heaters heat water only when you turn on the hot water, so you get fresh hot water on-demand. When you turn on the hot water tap water enters the unit, is immediately heated and is then delivered to you.
Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters
The difference between a storage tank water heater and the tankless variety is clear, but what exactly are the benefits of upgrading to a tankless option?
Energy & Money Savings
Since a tankless water heater doesn’t need to keep 40 to 50 gallons of water hot at all times, it uses less energy. In fact, tankless water heaters use about 30-50% less energy than even the most efficient tanked water heaters. This translates into significant savings on your bills each month which compound year after year.
On-Demand Hot Water
In addition to using less energy and helping you lower your utility bills, tankless water heaters don’t run out of hot water. You can have a continuous supply, so when you’re doing the dishes, your family is taking consecutive showers and the laundry is running, everything works seamlessly and comfortably.
Space Savings & Longevity
On top of being an efficient and simple way to always have hot water, tankless water heaters don’t take up much room. Unlike storage tank water heaters, they are slim and compact — easily fitting into a small area or cupboard. In addition to freeing up more space in your home, tankless water heaters are extremely durable — lasting for as long as 20 years. Traditional water heaters expire sooner and therefore not only cost more to run and maintain, but they also have to be replaced more often.
