Learn the benefits of Tankless Heaters and why Orange County Residents and Business Owners are making the change!
One of the biggest things homeowners want out of a new water heater is energy efficiency. This is where there’s the most dramatic difference between the two heaters. A tank heater operates continuously. That means it’s running even when you’re asleep, and much of that hot water will never even be used. That’s a lot of wasted energy that you pay for. A tankless heater only heats water on demand. It’s a smaller, compact system that flash-heats water when you need it, and turns off as soon as you turn off the faucet. Tankless heaters are designed to save energy.
The cost advantages depend on whether you want a quick fix or a long-term investment. Tank heaters cost less up front, but are expensive to run and wear out sooner. Tankless heaters cost slightly more up front, but can save you substantially on your monthly bills. Comparing a standard tank heater (50-gallon, electric) with an equivalent tankless (considered gas-fired unit), the tankless unit can reduce energy costs by 60% or more.
