How we cool and warm our homes is one of those most important decisions homeowners make to decrease their utility expenses and lower their energy consumption. If the decision is considered carefully, you could lower your utility bill and energy use considerably.
Did you know?
In the United States, air conditioners cost homeowners over $11 billion every year.
Heating water accounts for up to 30% of the average home’s energy budget.
When you think about the costs of repairing a furnace, heating services, plumbing services and the construction projects that can result from broken water pipes, the cost of maintaining a comfortable home can be a little daunting. Who knew that old water heaters can account for as much as 30% of your home’s entire energy consumption?
Thankfully, there are steps you can take to trim the fat of potential expenses. For instance, you can install a tankless water heater. Unlike traditional tank-style water heaters, tankless water heaters offer more versatile venting options. They require special venting to blow hot exhaust outside, where it dissipates. Tankless water heaters are one of the most efficient water heating options available, allowing homeowners to reduce energy costs by up to fifty percent and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to sixty-one percent.
They’re fast. Typically, tankless water heaters provide hot water at a rate of 2 to 5 gallons per minute.
They save energy. In homes that use up to 41 gallons of hot water daily, tankless water heaters can be 24% to 34% more energy-efficient than conventional storage tank water heaters.
They’re reliable. Most tankless water heaters will last more than 20 years.
Don’t end up spending more on heating services that may not be the best option for you. Take a good look at the options available and make an informed decision.
