If it's time to upgrade your traditional water heater due to failure or old age, why not try something new and go with a tankless water heater? These heaters have several benefits, from space savings to energy savings, plus they last longer than traditional tanks. Look to Mark Johnson Plumbing in Ruston, LA, to provide you with complete tankless water heater installation.
How much can you expect to save with a tankless water heater?
Tankless water heaters will save you money on your energy bill, but the amount you actually save will depend on your usage. The U.S. Department of Energy says that using less than 40 gallons of hot water per day can translate to an energy efficiency savings of 24 to 34 percent for tankless over traditional storage tanks.
If you have a tank that's certified by Energy Star, your family could experience an annual savings of between $80 and $100. You'll pay more initially for your tankless heater; however, because they have a longer lifespan, your savings in energy will even out over time.
How long will your tankless unit last you?
You can expect your tankless unit to last 20 years or more, compared with a traditional tank which only lasts up to 15. Tankless water heaters tend to have more parts that are more readily replaceable and with easier access, contributing to their long life expectancy.
Are tankless units ideal for larger or smaller households?
As said above, less usage as opposed to more will lead to the lowest energy bills. Because they don't have a holding tank that stores hot water, tankless units must heat up water on demand, or as needed. If you have a multiple family household that all tend to take showers during the same time period in the morning, you may experience lower flow rates and less hot water distribution over that period, as well as inconsistent water temperatures.
In general, tankless water heaters have a hot water rate of two to five gallons per minute. Electric versions are less able to keep up with the demands of many people showering, washing dishes and doing laundry all at once, compared with their gas-fired counterparts which tend to fare better in that regard. All that being said, tankless water heaters are designed overall to provide a good supply of hot water during peak periods.
With hot water eating up about 30 percent of the average household's budget, it stands to reason you will want to save money where you can and become eco-friendly in the process. Installing a tankless water heater can free up space in your basement and give you a pretty sizable energy savings each year. Call Mark Johnson Plumbing to learn more benefits of this type of appliance.
