Tankless Technology Delivers Savings
With the right tank capacity for your hot water usage, a traditional tank water heater will give the average homeowner years of satisfactory service. Water is heated, stored in the tank, and maintained at the desired temperature until needed.
Storing hot water leads to the two major shortcomings of tank water heaters:
- They constantly use energy to keep water hot
- Storing the heated water corrodes the tank and makes periodic replacement necessary
A tankless water heating system eliminates these operating costs and saves money month after month. With a tankless system, hot water is not stored. Instead, cold water is heated in a pipe that passes through an electric element or gas burner when the tap is turned on. This creates a continuous flow of hot water until the hot water tap is closed and the heating stops.
Advantages of tankless water heaters include:
- Continuously available hot water
- Uniform water temperature
- Space-saving installation
- Life expectancy of 20+ years
- Easy service and parts replacement
- Proven energy and money savings
