Water heater–a tankless job
There are a variety of alternatives when the time comes to replace that old, outdated inefficient, rusty, noisy, dangerous money wasting heap of disintegrating metal and corroded electrical wires encasing thirty to forty gallons of stagnant, highly conductive H2O crammed into some dark, dank hallway closet, just waiting for its chance to destroy everything you’ve worked for in a fiery, apocalyptic conflagration. Or in layman’s terms – is it time to replace your old water heater?
A tankless water heater can be thought of as hot water “on demand.” Let’s face it, keeping forty plus gallons of water at a constant 120 degrees Fahrenheit around the clock is highly inefficient, costly and wasteful. A tankless system heats your water as you need it–when you need–and that is simply a better more energy efficient way to get your hot water.
Tankless water heating systems have an energy factor of .69 to .80. That’s an outstanding rating. Traditional water heaters have an energy factor of only about .52 to .59. With tankless, you never will run out of hot water. You can expect your tankless system to last more than two decades and it is One Hundred Percent Guaranteed to Never Leak. Your tankless system can be expected to remain eighty-one percent to ninety-seven percent efficient for life of the system. Installation is easy because the system is small and very light-weight. In fact, it is designed to be mounted to a wall to maximize your floor space.
Usually, gas powered tankless water heaters provide superior flow rate compared to their electric tankless counterparts, but, a tankless water heater is not necessarily equipped for multi-use, so this can remedied by installing multiple units to meet your needs. When you go tankless, hot water is delivered at a preset temperature–there is no need for storage–this way, you reduce loss of energy use to maintain standby reserves.
