Water Heaters Don’t Last For Ever
Of course, water heaters don’t last forever and it may be that yours is nearing the end of its life. If that is the case, you might want to consider installing a new water heater, and the tankless water heater is the next big thing in energy conservation because it heats the water only when you need it. The old tank-type heaters heat up the water, but if you are not using it then it gradually cools down and the heater’s thermostat kicks in to heat it up again. This can happen several times a day, so you are using energy when you don’t need it.
Energy Star tankless water heaters simply heat up the water as you need it so you can fill your bath or take a shower for an hour and you will still get hot water. The average household will save around 40% of its’ energy bill on water, which can be $100 on gas bills compared with a tank-type water heater, and a larger family will save even more. Furthermore, tankless water heaters will provide hot water for all your appliances simultaneously, so you could be using it in the kitchen while another family member is taking a shower without any problem. Not only that, tankless water heaters hang on the wall and take up far less room than a tank-type water heater, so you save some space too.
So whether you want water heater repair in Wichita or would like to discuss the installation of a tankless water heater in Central Kansas, give us a call at Ben Franklin Plumbing before the weather gets really cold and we get that winter rush.
