Feeling the winter chill? Few things beat the winter blues better than a long, hot shower. Sometimes, though – especially if you have a large family – you may find that you only get a few minutes of warm water before it turns cold. Maybe you've even found that you can't enjoy hot showers while using other appliances like the washing machine.
If your water heater struggles to function consistently, you may want to consider installing a tankless unit. Their design allows you to enjoy hot water for longer periods of time while also saving you money on utilities. As a provider of water heater installation in Bucks County and the surrounding areas, we frequently see firsthand the difference these units make.
How Tankless Water Heaters Work
Traditional water heaters work by constantly heating dozens of gallons of water in a large tank. In contrast, tankless water heaters consist of small heating units located close to the hot water line of your faucets, shower heads, or inlet valves. As water reaches these units, they turn on, bringing the water up to the appropriate temperature. They turn off as soon as you stop running the water. Because they forgo the limited reservoir of water that traditional water heaters use, they never run out of hot water.
How Tankless Water Heaters Save Money
Traditional water heaters constantly use energy to keep their reservoirs hot. Tankless water heaters, on the other hand, use energy only when you need hot water. As a result, installing such units at each of your hot water outlets can provide you with energy savings of up to 27-50%. We estimate that typical households can save up to $100 or more per year with the Energy Star units we install.
Although tankless water heaters offer many benefits, another kind of water heater may better suit your household. With our wide selection of units and our extensive experience in the field, we can help you make an informed decision.
