When it’s time to replace your hot water heater, how do you know if a tankless water heater solution is right for you? Have a look at this infographic provided by Noritz and you’ll know right away if tankless hot water is the right fit for your needs.
Some key take-away points:
Each year, American homeowners pay $400 to $600, on average, to heat water for their washing, bathing and cleaning. That comes to 64 gallons every day, 365 days a year, or more than 23,000 gallons annually.
With this kind of hot water consumption, there are some common problems found with conventional water heaters. If any of these feel true to you, and you've been using a tank water heater, you may find a tankless hot water heater might be right for you:
- I keep running out of hot water.
The hot water quickly loses heat as it's being used because a conventional water heater can't heat water on demand.
- I have a big family.
There just isn't enough hot water in the reservoir of a conventional tank heater to supply our needs.
- My current water heater takes up too much space.
Needs change, and sometimes a bigger hot water capacity is required, but old homes cannot always accommodate bigger tank heaters.
- My current water heater is 10 or more years old.
Over time, tank heaters fill with sediments and scale, which greatly reduces efficiency, and wrecks havoc on water appliances down the line.
- I prefer appliances that are energy-efficient.
Tankless water heaters offer Energy Star compliance, and rebates, as well as greatly improved efficiency compared to conventional heaters.
- My home uses gas fuel.
Then you're all set and ready to supply your family with an endless supply of hot water.
If any of these points ring true to you, then you should seriously consider going green with tankless water heaters, and investing in a tank less water heating solution this year.
