Tankless, On Demand Water Heaters – Did you know?
April 6, 2016
By heating water only when you need it, ENERGY STAR certified tankless water heaters save a family of four $95 per year, or $1,800 over the lifetime of the water heater, on gas bills compared to a standard storage model. Gas tankless models are a great choice for new construction and major remodeling, but are also becoming popular as a replacement for gas storage water heaters.
If you want to replace your current gas water heater don’t wait until it fails, as this will leave little time to choose and install a certified ENERGY STAR tankless model. Because installation may require the upgrade of your existing natural gas line, as well as special venting for safety and to accommodate higher air flow rates, and running electricity over to the water heater to power the fan and freeze protection element, you will need to allow sufficient time to evaluate costs and complete the change out. To make your life easier, try to have a new one installed before it’s an emergency.
