Tankless Water Heating
The Greatest Invention Since Running Water
What are tankless water heaters?Tankless water heating systems are revolutionizing the way homeowners meet their hot water needs. These energy efficient systems can produce an endless supply of hot water. Traditional storage tank heaters keep water hot 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, constantly heating and re-heating stored water and wasting energy. A tankless system does not store hot water. It only heats the water when you use it. Saving energy that translates into dollar savings for you.
Discussions on tankless water heaters are heating up and word is that homeowners are finding that the technology has huge benefits, including:
- A longer life span than traditional tanks (The average shelf life of tankless unit is greater than 20 years, verses 10 years for a storage tank system.)
- Energy cost savings
