Top Reasons a Tankless Water Heater Powered by Propane is Right for Your Family
Endless Hot Water Delivery
One advantage of a tankless water heater is the efficiency of the unit. Because tankless water heaters run continuously and on-demand, they can triple the hot water flow compared to heat pump water heaters. Also, they are not limited by storage capacity, so homeowners never have to run out of hot water.
If you have minimal space, a tankless water heater will present the best option for you. Tankless units can be as small as a medicine cabinet so they save floor space and are flexible enough to be installed indoors or outdoors.
If you want to help sustain the environment then the eco-friendly aspects of a tankless water heater are right for you. Not only does each unit use less energy, the absence of energy waste also makes a positive impact on your carbon footprint. The right amount of hot water is created just as you need it. In addition, the issues of rust and scale common with water heaters using storage tanks are negated. This means the hot water you get is not only fresh but probably the cleanest one can use to bathe and cook safely.
Cheaper to Own
Tankless water heaters last longer. Their life cycle is about 20 years, compared with the 15 year life of a heat pump water heater. The annual cost of ownership for a heat pump water heater is about 18 percent high in new homes and 13 percent higher in remodels. Energy Star- qualified propane tankless water heaters have efficiency levels of 83%-94%. They cost roughly 60 percent less to operate than a standard electric model, while providing a longer-lasting stream of hot water.
The choice is clear! You have enough to worry about in your home. Going tankless is a simple choice. See the research behind these figures yourself.
