Tankless Hot Water Heaters: The Revolutionary Way To Heat Your Water
Tankless hot water heaters are about to revolutionize the plumbing business. I realize that's a daring statement, but today they're like the little train that could: little, underestimated, and completely assured in their ability.
Their manufacturers know that it's only a matter of time before every home and business in North America will demand the little appliance that can.
Does the government know something you don't?
Even Uncle Sam recognizes the many benefits of these energy-efficient appliances and encourages homeowners to purchase them. Compliant households can earn a tax credit of 30% or $300 against the purchase and installation of a new unit.
For many people this is enough of a reason to purchase a tankless hot water heater. Not to mention that they save water and electricity, can be installed right next to the bathroom and kitchen and don't require venting!
Conserve natural resources while reaping cost savings
One of the biggest opportunities for improvement can be found in the bathroom or kitchen or wherever else hot water flows freely. This applies to businesses and homes a like.
Just realize that whether the water is being heated for a restaurant dishwasher or the shower at home, money can be saved with tankless hot water heaters.
Here's how "on demand" hot water works and why it saves money:
-By avoiding stand-by heat loss and taking less time to heat, the "on demand" hot water simply takes less time to heat and avoids losing the heat that traditional tank water heaters lose through their walls. This can represent a savings of as much as $100-$300 a year for the typical family
-An "on demand" unit can last twice as long as the traditional water heater because they have an approximate 20-year life expectancy
-You have more time to reap the benefits of your investment
-"On demand" only runs when heated water is required
-Saving even more $$$ in fuel efficiency
-Fuel costs including natural gas, propane, and electricity are steadily increasing
-As costs go up, "on-demand" efficiency creates even greater savings
Did you know that as much as 30% of your home's energy use may be devoted to heating water?
Bottom line: The greater energy performance and lower operating costs make Skye tankless hot water heaters a smart choice for both budget-minded and green consumers alike.
Space saving, smaller units mean less energy required.
According to the US Department of Energy, some of these space saving electric models operate at a 99% power efficiency. That might be why the Government gives an incentive to people to purchase them and use them? A traditional storage tank heater has only a 58% efficiency rating.
Like the little train that could, the tankless space-saving units chug away at what they do using less energy resources and a smaller footprint to complete their task.
Bonus benefits for homeowners and businesses include:
-Repairs can be made easily
-Less space is required
-Endless hot water
-New models have USB ports for future connection of energy smart grid systems
-New operating software can be uploaded and
-Usage data can be downloaded for diagnostic purposes
Stop and just think about this for a minute...natural fuel resources continue to climb, and energy-efficient appliances are obviously one way to counter-act such rising expenses. While saving money, you also get an "endless and continuous supply" of hot water for your dishwasher, showers, hot tubs, and even the deep abyss of whirlpools. 'Kinda' makes it a no-brainer, don't you think?
I think I can, I think I can, I think I can...ahhhh the quiet, unnoticeable hum of the tankless.
