Water heating accounts for almost 20 percent of an average home’s energy usage. You can reduce hot water costs in your Peachtree City home by investing in an energy-efficient tankless water heater. Rather than heating up a full tank of water and keeping it hot until it’s used, tankless water heaters produce hot water only as needed.
How Do Tankless Water Heaters Work?
When you turn on the hot water tap, cold water moves through a pipe where it’s heated by either an electric heating element or a gas burner. Tankless systems deliver from two to five gallons of hot water per minute with gas-heated tanks having a faster flow-rate. Tankless water heaters can also be used to supplement electric water heaters by providing heated water for hot tubs and remote bathrooms, or they can be used to boost the hot water output of appliances.
How Much Money Can I Save?
If you can get by on 41 gallons of hot water per day, a tankless water heater can be up to 34 percent more efficient than a traditional water heater. If you need up to 86 gallons per day, an on-demand water heater can be up to 14 percent more efficient.
What are Some Additional Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters?
Tankless water heaters can last for at least 20 years, and because they come with easily replaceable parts, they can last for many years more. On-demand units have lower energy, maintenance and operating costs than traditional water heating units, and because they’re small, they can be mounted on interior or exterior walls or in cramped crawl spaces.
