Three Reasons to Switch to a Tankless Water Heater

Posted: May 31, 2018

Chances are (statistically speaking) you use about 60-70 gallons of hot water a day in your sinks, showers, clothes washers, and dishwashers.

The question is why would you pay to heat more than that if you don’t plan to use it?

That’s the thinking behind a tankless propane water heater, which instantly heats as much water as you need – and only the water you need – to perform your daily hot water tasks.

How a tankless water heater works

The moment you turn on your hot water tap or start your hot water appliance, a fresh supply of water is sent through a powerful, propane-fired heat exchanger in your tankless water heater, which instantly raises its temperature to your desired setting.

Voila – instant hot water on demand!

Tankless water heater benefits

Energy-conscious countries in Europe and Asia have been using tankless water heaters for decades, and U.S. customers are quickly catching the wave.

Here are three of the biggest reasons to go tankless in your Maine home:

  1. Unlimited hot showers – Install a tankless water heater with the right flow rate for your family’s usage and you’ll never run out of hot water in your shower again – not even if you want to run your washing machine at the same time.
  2. Lower bills – By operating only when hot water is needed, you’ll avoid standby heat loss – heat that dissipates from stored hot water when it’s sitting in your basement storage tank waiting to be used. That – along with using an electronic ignition rather than a pilot light – could cut your monthly bills by 30 percent or more.
  3. Placement flexibility – Most wall-mounted tankless systems are about the size of a suitcase – significantly smaller than conventional water heater with a storage tank. That saves precious floor space in your basement and allows for installation in crawl spaces, attics, and other tight spaces.
