Maybe your family has grown since you first moved to Jackson, Mississippi, and you use more hot water. Or maybe you feel like you never use enough hot water to empty that huge tank, and you’re tired of being wasteful. Either way, your current water heater may be increasing utility costs and cutting convenience. Take back control by taking advantage of the innovation offered by a tankless water heater.
What Makes Tankless Water Heaters Different?
What makes tankless water heaters so innovative? It’s all in the name. A traditional water heater stores between 30 and 50 gallons of water in a large storage tank and preheats that water to a certain temperature while preparing it for use.
Tankless water heaters, on the other hand, warm water on demand rather than storing it. When you need hot water, the heater pumps water through and heats it.
The Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters
Does removing the tank really make a big difference? It does, and in more ways than you may think.
Perhaps a tankless water heater’s most appealing benefit is its energy efficiency. Tankless water heaters tend to utilize energy far more efficiently than their traditional cousins. In fact, they’re between 24 and 34 percent more efficient if you use less than 41 gallons a day, and between 8 and 14 percent more efficient if you use around 86 gallons per day.
In addition to the efficiency benefits tankless water heaters offer, they also last more than 20 years, which is almost double the lifespan of a traditional water heater. They cost less to operate and provide constant hot water. That means you won’t have to worry about using what’s in the tank before everyone’s finished showering.
Thanks to simple innovation, tankless water heaters can provide your home with greater comfort, convenience and savings. To see the benefits of a tankless water heater for yourself, call Dent Air Conditioning at 601-912-0535.
