Not all water heaters need to store hot water, which in the end wastes energy and costs you money. That’s where propane tankless water heaters can step up to help.
Tankless hot water heaters get the water hot as you need it. This on-demand system accesses water directly from a water pipe. This makes the process of heating water much more efficient.
Additionally, tankless units take up such a small space that you will actually be able to reclaim all that square footage your old water heater tank was taking up. Most tankless units hang on a wall and are about the size of a small suitcase and, maybe best of all, they will last about twice as long as a standard storage tank water heater.
While your old water heater would heat and store water until you needed it, it would also lose heat over time – even more so if it’s located in an unheated space.
With a tankless water heater, when you turn your hot water faucets on, or power up an appliance like a washing machine or dishwasher, water circulates through a heat exchanger and shows up upon request—hot and ready for anything you need it for.
At the same time, you’ll see an increase in energy efficiency – as much as 40 percent – and you’ll be able to access unlimited amounts of hot water – all without the worries that come with hot water storage tank draining and having to refill and reheat.
