What the Experts Are Saying about Tankless Hot Water Heaters

Will a tankless hot water heater cut costs and perform well in your home?

There are still a lot of mysteries surrounding tankless hot water heater technology. Does it save money? Does it provide enough hot water for a family? If it works so well, why hasn’t everyone taken the plunge? Fogel technicians are prepared to answer your questions honestly and thoroughly to help you determine if a tankless system is right for you.

Here are a few fast facts from the experts to take into consideration:

Tankless Systems Provide Roughly 22% in Energy Savings

Traditional water heating systems consume fuel while maintaining the warmth of stored water to keep it ready for use. In contrast, tankless systems only warm water when it’s needed, meaning you stand to save a significant amount of energy and expense by using energy to heat what you use when you use it.

Larger Homes May Struggle With Lag, Much Like With Traditional Hot Water Systems

Chances are, you already have to wait for warm water when you turn on the shower. With a tankless water heater, the length of this wait will depend on the size of your home, as you’ll have to wait for the hot water to flow from your water heater to your appliances. Don’t forget about the savings you’ll experience with heating water as you need it instead of paying to keep water hot all the time.

The difference is that your hot water won’t run out after a shower or a load of dishes. You’ll have unlimited resources. Every person in your family can take a shower, you can wash clothes, and you can still have hot water ready for use.

Hot Water Heaters May Take More to Install, But They Last Longer, Too

A traditional water heater may cost $500 or $600 after all costs are figured. A tankless system may cost twice that if you wind up having to add a gas or electric line for placement or an exhaust vent. However, those are one-time expenses you won’t pay again for at least 20 years until you replace your unit. If you stay in your home for a long time, you’ll truly reap the benefits, and if you move frequently, you can use those components to boost your home’s value.
