A heat wave of a different kind
Does it seem like someone is constantly in the shower in your house? In between swimming and other outdoor activities, we tend to take more showers, sometimes multiple ones, each day. Have you ever been on the receiving end of an empty hot water heater? No fun. What if a more energy-efficient device could put an end to “running out of hot water?” Meet the tankless hot water heater.
Reason One to Install a Tankless Hot Water Heater
Also known as “on-demand” units, tankless hot water heaters heat water only when you turn the faucet. Because they heat water as needed, they do not store water. This means the tank will not run out of hot water. Get as much hot water as you need, when you need it!
Reason Two to Invest in a Tankless Hot Water Heater
Compared to traditional storage tank hot water heaters, tankless versions do not experience standby heat loss. Tankless units also eliminate the cost of keeping 40-50 gallons of water, for example, heated indefinitely in a storage tank. Tankless hot water heaters can be fueled by electricity, natural gas or propane.
Homeowners have found Energy Star-qualified tankless water heaters use 30 to 50 percent less energy than units with tanks. This can save the average family about $100 or more each year. Savings vary depending on water usage, fuel costs and model efficiency. Talk to Apollo Home for a free estimate and to determine which model makes the most economical sense for your family’s use.
Also, tankless water heaters tend to last longer than the average storage tank heater. A normal lifespan for a tank heater is around 10-15 years compared to almost 20 years for a tankless hot water heater. This ultimately saves you money too, as you’ll need to replace the unit less often.
The best way to extend the life of your heater is to routinely care for it with a preventative maintenance plan, like the Apollo Care Plan.
Reason Three to Join the Tankless Hot Water Heater Revolution
Who wouldn’t love a little bit more storage space? Tankless water heaters have a much smaller footprint than a tradition tank unit. Whether this gives you more storage space for Christmas decorations in your mechanical room is up to you.
Some homeowners even opt to install a second tankless hot water heater in an upstairs closet or laundry room if the square footage or household occupancy warrants it. A tankless water heater might also be a strong selling point if you’re planning on listing your home in a few years.
