Tired of waiting for the water to
warm up? Consider installing an instant hot water heater, also called a
tankless or on demand hot water heater.
You can choose either a point-of-use unit for a specific location or a
whole-house unit, depending on your needs. These units heat water on demand
instead of storing it in a tank. This
process is energy efficient because it eliminates the heat lost and energy
wasted by heating water only to store it in a tank. Plus, you save water
because you don’t have to let the water run while waiting for it to warm up. You
could save up to 40% on your energy bill, qualify for a federal energy tax
credit, and save hundred of gallons of water each month. Instant hot water heaters come in a variety of
types and sizes, costing anywhere from a hundred to thousands of dollars, so be
sure to get one that meets your needs.
