If you find that your water heater is not making your water as hot as you like, or if your water heater is not going to meet the needs of your family you should look at the tankless water heaters that are available. Some of the best new technology has brought us this advancement, so that you can heat water, as you need it, fast.
A tankless water heater is going to heat the water instantly when you use it. The heater is only going to run when the hot water turns on. It is not heating water when you are not using it. If you are doing loads of laundry and you are taking a shower, the tankless water heater can keep up with all the water usage. You can even adjust the tankless water heater to the temperature that you like the water to be at, which is going to save you even more money in the long run. A tankless water heater is going to use less energy than conventional heaters. The average family can save 50% of the cost of heating their water with an older system.
The tankless water heater can take the place of that big tank in your basement or be put in a closet of your home. If you are building an addition to your home, and you want to put in a new bathroom you can include the tankless water heater inside the wall cavities, saving even more space. Another advantage is that you will not have trouble with the tankless water heater that some people have had when their old-fashioned hot water tanks exploded and soaked their home.
Energy Efficient Tankless Water Heaters Can Save You Money on Your Taxes
Residential water heating is typically the second largest use of energy in American homes, so there are special tax incentives being offered to encourage homeowners to use energy efficient tankless water heaters. This is actually a win-win-win for homeowners, who can now receive an additional tax credit savings for purchasing a tankless water heater in addition to a reduction of 30%-50% in monthly utility bills. The good news is we get to save money on monthly utilities while helping to preserve the environment.
Only gas tankless water heaters with an Energy Factor (EF) of at least 0.80, as certified by the U.S. Department of Energy, qualify for the tax credit. Standard, old-fashioned storage tank heaters have lower Energy Factors because they heat water continuously, whether it is being used or not. “That’s like leaving your car idling in the driveway 24 hours a day,” noted Kyle Murray, Vice President of Marketing for Bosch Water Heating. Bosch tankless water heaters have EF’s as much as 20 points higher than even the best storage tank heaters.
The Bosch product line includes sixteen powerful, energy-efficient tankless water heaters with EF’s above the 0.80 minimum. The new generation of Bosch tankless water heaters produces flow volumes of almost seven gallons per minute, which is enough for two major simultaneous household uses such as showers, laundry, dish washing, etc. And they are as environmentally friendly as they are efficient, producing up to 50% fewer greenhouse gas emissions.
