If one of your main concerns as a homeowner is saving energy, look to your home’s water heater. A water heater uses up a significant amount of energy. A typical water heater can cost a household up to $800 per year. Hot water heaters are particularly wasteful because they use up energy to keep water heated at all times; even when hot water is not needed.
While conventional heaters are energy guzzlers, there is an alternative: tankless water heaters. If you are considering buying a tankless water heater for your home, below is an FAQ that will assist with any questions you may have.
Question: How long after installation will the heater last?
Answer: The majority of these water heaters come with a 10- to 15-year warranty, and they typically last up to twenty years before replacing.
Question: Is the water from a tankless heater safe and clean?
Answer: Many tank-style heaters have a buildup of rust and hard water scale. Since the water is not stored in a tank, you get fresher, clearer water.
Question: How will a tankless water heater save me energy?
Answer: Because this heater only heats water when you need it, it saves you both energy and money.
