Should You Install a Tankless Water Heater In Your Home?

Did you know that water heaters make up about 30% of your home's energy budget?  With so much money and energy spent heating the water in your home, you want your system to work as efficiently as possible.  That's why many family's make the switch from traditional water heaters to tankless!  

Here are a few ways to determine if a tankless water heater is the right choice for your family's needs.
  • Consider Size - If your basement is pressed for space, it might be time to switch to a tankless heater.  Since tankless water heaters are much smaller than their traditional counter parts, they are a great way to save space.
  • Consider Fuel - Hot water heaters are available in both electric and gas models.  If you are considering using an electric water heater, you will need to check the voltage and amperage requirements.
  • Know How Much Water You Use - Consider your home's water usage habits.  Tankless heater heat water as it is used, rather than storing a designated amount in a holding tank.  If you think that you will be running multiple water intensive appliances at once, you want to make sure that you have enough hot water to meet your demand.  You will need either a large enough traditional water heater or a tankless heater that meets your needs.
