To be honest, if your hot water has been working like you need it to, you probably haven't given much thought toward your water heater lately. We don't blame you! It's just human nature not to worry about something until it is actually broken. But have you considered that your water heating could be inefficient, using up way more energy than it needs to use? Homeowners are becoming increasingly aware of their individual carbon footprints, and they also are needing to find more ways to save money when it comes to energy-related expenses.
Tankless Water Heaters
Tankless water heaters are incredibly efficient in two ways; they use less energy, and they provide hot water on demand, as opposed to their traditional water heater counterparts. Have you ever run out of hot water after two or three people took showers before you? It's a sad day to have to take a cold shower. (Especially when it is 7 degrees outside). The idea behind a tankless water heater is that it heats water very quickly and on demand rather than keeping a large tank constantly heating. It is more convenient while also being more energy efficient, and let's face it; those things rarely go hand in hand.
Water heaters have a typical life expectancy, so whether yours is simply inefficient or on its last leg, it may be wise to consider the switch to a tankless water heater to enjoy the convenience, the savings and also help the environment by reducing your carbon footprint.
