Tankless Water Heaters Save Money and Energy

Homeowners spend 10 - 20 percent of their annual water heating costs just to keep the water in their storage tanks hot. This winter, help save money, and energy, with a propane tankless water heater. Propane tankless water heaters heat water only when it is needed, thereby reducing standby energy loss by up to 20 percent and costing approximately 60 percent less to operate.

Going the tankless way allows for lower energy consumption and minimal operational costs - both crucial aspects, given the current state of our economy. The U.S. Department of Energy supports builders who are making efforts to educate consumers in this area.

How Tankless Works

Tankless water heaters only heat water when it is needed. When a water source is opened, the tankless model senses the demand for hot water flow and starts the heating process. The water flows through a heat exchanger and is heated to the designated temperature set by the user. When the water source tap is closed, the heater automatically shuts off until hot water is demanded again. Also, its small size saves space and provides limitless installation options either inside or outside the home.

How Tankless Saves Money

  • Tankless water heaters reduce standby energy loss by up to 20 percent and cost approximately 60 percent less to operate.
  • Most tankless water heaters can provide eight gallons per minute of hot water.
  • Because tankless models are less subject to corrosion, the expected life span of a tankless water heater is 20 years - twice as long as most storage water heaters.

Save time exploring the options to keep your customers - and their wallets - comfortable this winter: Propane tankless water heaters are also a great solution.
