Bathing has not always been a topic of great concern, such as in ancient times; however, nowadays, people on average take a bath once per day. Before the invention of the water heater, people had to heat up water and pour it into their tubs, which was normally reserved only for royalty. Today, there has been invented a great addition to the comforts for people’s homes: the tankless water heater.
About The Tankless or “On-Demand” Water Heaters
Tankless water heaters help aid in the reduction of energy that is consumed by the average household. These tankless water heaters are also known by the name “on-demand” water heaters. This is because this invention only heats water when it is needed, rather than heating it in a tank, and reheating it if it is not used. A traditional water heater will heat all of the water in your house; however, a tankless only heats it when you need it, so if you are not at home or you are not using your water, you will save greatly on your utility costs. Especially if you are going on a vacation, this will greatly help you save money.
These water heaters work on a different premise than traditional water heaters. There is no tank that stores the heated water. The water is not heated until you turn on your hot water faucet. The water is instead heated as it travels through your pipes and can be set to warm or hot, depending on your needs.
Even if you have a larger home or a larger family which means that you need to purchase two tankless water heaters to keep up with demands, you will still save approximately eighty to ninety percent on your yearly utility bills. In these economic times, you could try something different to help save money in your family.
