Why Should I Consider A Propane Tankless Water Heater?

propane tankless water heaters massachusettsYou use as much as 60 gallons of hot water every day for your taps and appliances. The only problem is that you’re probably paying to heat more water than that.

If you have a conventional water heater (one with a tank), your hot water spends much of its time waiting to be used. Since that water has to be hot when you need it, your water heater may have to re-heat it several times – and you pay for every one of them. Storage tanks are insulated, and you could put an external jacket on the tank for further protection, but those measures won’t eliminate the problem entirely; to do that, you need to install a propane tankless water heater.

Propane tankless water heaters: Four key advantages

A tankless water heater produces hot water on demand rather than heating water and storing it for later. By working this way, a tankless water heater offers important benefits compared to conventional water heaters, including:

  • Unlimited hot water – As long as water is flowing from your water main through the water heater’s heating element, you’ll have an indefinite supply of hot water. No more cold showers!
  • Lower monthly bills – By working only when needed, not using a pilot light, and never having to reheat water, a tankless water heater could cut your monthly bills by as much as 40 percent compared to a conventional electric-powered unit.
  • Greater placement flexibility – Since it’s about the size of a suitcase, you can install a tankless water heater just about anywhere – including closets and crawl spaces.
  • Longer equipment life – The average lifespan of a tankless water heater is 18 years, according to the U.S. Department of Energy – nearly double the 10 years of a conventional water heater.

While the up-front cost of a tankless water heater can be substantially higher than that of a conventional water heater, the energy savings and equipment longevity often offset that cost and more. The bottom line: a tankless water heater can be a great option – as long as it is sized and installed by professionals like the ones you will always find at W.H. Riley & Son.
