Energy Efficient Tankless Water Heaters from DRF Water Heating Solutions Save Chicago Homeowners Money and Reduce Energy Waste
The second largest home energy expenditure after space heating and cooling is water heating, totaling an average of $400-$600 per year. By heating water only when it’s needed, tankless water heaters reduce water heating expenses and eliminate energy waste associated with traditional storage water heaters. An ENERGY STAR certified tankless water heater can save the typical family more than $1700 on natural gas costs over the lifetime of the water heater, with larger families saving even more.
Old, inefficient storage water heaters have to work non-stop to keep tens of gallons of water hot and ready for use. The water heater continues to work, burn energy, increase your utility bill, and impact your carbon footprint, whether you are home or not, using the hot water or not. The larger the water heater tank, the more energy wasted. Chicago tankless water heaters only heat water as it is demanded. Therefore, when the hot water is turned off, the tankless water heater is saving money for Chicago homeowners.
Tankless water heaters provide many of benefits for families in addition to saving money and energy. Tankless models maintain a continuous flow of hot water, so no family member ever has to suffer through a cold shower! Gas tankless water heaters are compact and mounted on the wall, saving space and eliminating potential damage from any flood water. Tankless water heaters last two to three times longer than traditional tank water heaters. Tankless models also eliminate the risk of tank leaks, almost a guarantee with a storage tank water heater.
If you are one of the 27 million households with a storage water heater that is 10 years old or more, waiting for it to fail could be a costly mistake. Being proactive and shopping for a new, more efficient water heater will allow you to choose the best water heating solution for your home and family.
