When you’re looking forward to a nice warm shower to soothe your aching muscles after a long day, you don’t want to step into tepid water that quickly turns cold and forces you out before you’ve even had a chance to rinse off.
If you have to time showers so everyone gets hot water or wait because the hot water ran out anyway, it’s time to think about a better way to handle water heating in your Nassau or Suffolk County home.
Tankless Water Heaters Deliver On-Demand
Tankless water heaters flash heat water using copper coils and condensers. When you turn on the tap, an electronic ignition is activated, setting off the heating process. As water travels through, powerful heat exchangers quickly bring it up to preset temperatures.
Imagine: hot water whenever you want it for endless showers—run the dishwasher, a load of laundry, and take a shower all at once! It’s within your reach with a tankless water heater.
There are a few other benefits to installing a new tankless water heater you should know about as well.
No More Waiting
It bears repeating—with a tankless water heater, every time you turn on the hot water faucet, you will get hot water. It’s as convenient as it sounds. A traditional water heater keeps a 30–50-gallon tank of water hot until you need it. Once it runs out, the tank fills again with cold water that requires time to heat. If you’ve got a family, guests, or a lot of cleaning up to do, it’s easy to use all the water in your tank.
Energy and Cost Efficient
Keeping 30-50 gallons of water hot day and night, whether you need it or not, takes a lot of energy. Regardless if it’s oil, gas or electricity, your traditional water heater is wasting energy when no one is home or you’re asleep and not using hot water. Tankless water heaters only require energy to heat water when it’s called for, and that means lower bills for you.
At Green Homes, we rely on Rinnai tankless water heaters. Every part of a Rinnai heater is replaceable, so there’s less waste and it’s easy and affordable to repair, exchanging or replacing just one part rather than the whole heater. Also, with the increased energy efficiency, your heater will create fewer carbon emissions for a lower environmental impact.
Tankless water heaters are relatively small and will hang on the wall, freeing up space in your home or basement.
