The summer heat is upon us, and with the high temperatures come an increase in the need for showers and dirty laundry! Whether your time is spent collecting muddy sports uniforms throughout your kids’ rooms, or yard work begs for multiple showers in one day – your home’s water heater is a key part of navigating the summer heat; without a properly functioning water heater, you’ll be left with a less efficient and more difficult task!

Tankless water heaters offer many benefits:

More Energy Efficient

Propane tankless water heaters only heat water as needed, opposed to conventional water heaters which continually heat water even if it isn’t in use. This means less energy is needed to heat water. In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Energy, tankless water heaters are 24–34% more energy efficient than conventional storage tank water heaters in homes that use 41 gallons or less of hot water a day.

Reduced Utility Bills

Reduced energy costs go hand-in-hand with higher energy efficiency. On average, propane tankless water heaters can reduce energy costs by up to 50%, saving homeowners around $100 a year on utility bills.

Endless Supply of Hot Water

With conventional water heaters, the entire tank is heated and then distributed throughout the house when in use. So, when the tank runs out, the hot water runs out. Propane tankless water heaters only heat the water as it’s needed and can deliver more than 200 gallons of hot water per hour, so you’ll never run out of hot water.

Longer Life Expectancy

Tankless water heaters have an average life span of about 20 years, more than double that of conventional water heaters. They can also go years without maintenance, as opposed to conventional water heaters which generally require annual maintenance.

Use Less Space

When space is at a minimum, a tankless water heater is the way to go. These compact, suitcase-sized units are mounted to the wall and can save you up to 16 square feet of floor space.
