Tankless Water Heaters Save Space and Electricity
p>According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, the second-most household appliance that contributes to energy consumption is the water heater. If you’re getting ready to upgrade your Alexandria, VA home’s water heater, take a moment to read more about how tankless water heaters can save you more on your energy bills and save space.
How Tankless Water Heaters Save Energy
The most attractive feature of a tankless heater is its low operating costs. Most people are familiar with standard water heaters that store heated water in a 40-50 gallon tank. While tank water heaters do the job, they do it using more energy because the water must be heated constantly, so you always have hot water when needed.
Tankless water heaters don’t store water. They use innovative technology that heats the water on demand as it flows through household pipes. The water is circulated through a heat exchanger and only heated while the water is on. Since the water isn’t constantly being reheated, the tankless unit consumes less energy, and you spend less money when you use hot water.
Tankless Water Heaters Are Great Space Savers
Everyone needs more space in their homes, and a standard water heater isn’t giving you the space you need. Even if you feel like you have the space in a utility closet, a pantry, or even the basement for a conventional water heater, think about what you could do with the extra space if the water heater is on the wall.
Tankless water heaters are about the size of a large briefcase or a main electrical panel. They get installed on a wall, and in some cases, you can even have them installed under a kitchen sink. Larger households that use more hot water daily might need two or more tankless heaters for sufficient heating. Since these heaters are so small, you don’t lose space when you need more water heating power.
