Hot Water, Tankless Water Heaters
In typical homes, the water heater uses more energy than any other appliance except for the heating system. Depending on local energy prices, a family of four spends between $200 and $500 per year for heating water. For many families, this represents a significant portion of their utility bills.
For most households, the energy used to heat water can be reduced by 25-50% through conservation. This amounts to a savings of approximately $50-$250 per year at current rates.
Assuming only the minimum savings of $50 per year, it would easily make sense to spend up to $200 improving the energy efficiency of your hot water heater. It should be possible to insulate your water heater and a substantial amount of hot water pipes for this amount of money. Reducing the temperature of the hot water tank is also an easy way to save.
Looking to replace your old hot water tank? Have you conisdered a new tankless on demand water heater? You don't use hot water all day but you're paying to heat it 24 hours a day. With a standard water heater, you heat and reheat the same water…even when you're sleeping. A tankless water heater is a more efficient way to heat water, save energy and money.
A tankless water heater heats water quickly and delivers an endless supply of hot water for as long as you need it. You only pay to heat water when you need it and for as long as you want it. Tankless water heaters are at least 50 percent more energy efficient than a traditional natural gas water heater and up to 70 percent more efficient than an electric water heater.
