When you think of the most important feature or use in your Auburn, CA. home that you can’t live without, what things come to mind? Well, having a constant supply of electricity is nice, whether for washing your clothes, watching the tube, or to keep from tripping over your child’s toy in the dark. Water is up there as well, whether it’s coming from the kitchen sink, lavatory, or bathroom shower. But water alone isn’t good enough; it’s got to be hot.
Hot water is the name of the game in Grass Valley and having a constant supply of hot water is essential. Tankless water heaters are growing in popularity throughout the world because of their energy and space-efficient nature. In Great Britain, tankless models now account for more than half of all domestic water heaters!
To learn why tankless water heaters are the way to go for achieving a continuous flow of hot water in your Penn Valley home, read on for the top 6 reasons to consider the tankless models.
Reason #1 – Continuous flow of hot water
Say goodbye to running out of hot water with the tankless water heater! Because the tankless model is designed to heat water as it flows through the heater there is a never-ending flow of water available. The tankless model is specifically designed to deliver as much as 14.3 gallons of hot water per minute continuously. That’s a lot of showers.
Reason #2 – Energy conservation (and money conservation, too!)
The environment and conservation are becoming increasingly important to today’s consumers in Nevada and Placer County, which is a plus for tankless water heaters. Any water heater expert will tell you that tankless water heaters are energy-efficient. But how does that energy efficiency translate into saving dollars for you? Tankless water heaters can save you more than 50% off a traditional tank water heater’s energy costs! Tank type water heaters heat the water before it’s needed, you could have 100 gallons of hot water just waiting to be used. Tankless water heaters only heat water when you are using it and do not waste energy. The traditional tank heater contains burners that switch on and off to keep the water hot 24/7/365. Plus they have a pilot light that never turns off wasting huge amounts of fuel.
Reason #3- $1,500.00 in Tax Credits
In addition to the satisfaction of knowing that you are conserving energy, take comfort from the fact that while you owe it to the environment, the federal government owes it to you in the way of tax credit. Homeowners can now get tax credits from the federal government for purchasing energy-efficient appliances. (For more information, please see Energy Star’s web site ) This means that you can get up to $1,500.00 (or up to 30%) in tax credits just for purchasing and installing a tankless water heater!
Reason #4 – Less space for tankless model, more space for your home
Space can be a problem for many homeowners in Auburn, Ca. With the tankless water heater, you won’t need to worry about finding space to fit the heater in. Because of its uniquely small size, a tankless model can be installed in tight places where the traditional water heater would not otherwise fit. A traditional tank heater must be stored in a space that will support 400-600 pounds and take up to 128 cubic feet. A tankless water heater provides you with that extra space that you can utilize for something else to fit your life better, like say a linen closet.
Reason #5 – Lasting effect
Replacing appliances can be costly, not to mention a huge time consumption in picking out new models and having to reinstall a new system. With the tankless water heater, you can avoid the frequency of replacing it because it lasts at least on average twenty years! The average amount of time that a traditional tank heater lasts is anywhere from only 8 to 10 years. Of course, if you ever face a problem with your tankless water heater, you can get it repaired easily by ABT Plumbing, Electric, Heating & Air Conditioning, unlike a traditional water heater that usually requires a replacement if a malfunction occurs.
Reason #6 – It costs less!
Owning a tankless water heater can impact your home in more ways than just energy efficiency and durability. The costs of purchasing and installing a tankless water heater in your home in Penn Valley may cost you more in installation cost over a Tank type water heater. But with the tax credits you receive today, it may actually cost less; it will depend on the size of your home and the model that is best for you. With the purchase of a tankless water heater, you can expect it to pay for itself in a very short time!
Yes, tankless IS the way to go
Hot water is a necessity in today’s world, so if you can have that continuous flow of hot water while saving money ($1,500.00 Tax Credit), conserving energy, utilizing space better, and owning a long-lasting appliance with the tankless water heater, then why not do it today?
