Save Energy by Going Green with Tankless Water Heaters

All of us are constantly in the lookout for new ways to save our domestic energy costs. People try out different alternatives to save energy, but many of them may not have considered installation of tankless water heaters as a replacement for their existing water heaters. Standard water heaters retain between 40 and 80 gallons of water at a temperature of around 120 degrees throughout the day. The heating process in a standard water heater continues even when you are not at home or when you are asleep. This is the reason why the cost of heating water is one of the highest energy expenses for any Toronto household.

Tank less water heaters are the perfect solutions for homes that spend a high amount for water heating. The best thing about tank less water heaters are that they only provide hot water on demand, and water is not stored in a tank. These heaters do not burn energy all the time to keep a large volume of water heated round the clock. These heaters only heat water when it is needed, resulting in a huge energy savings for the users. These are tiny units that are wall mounted and can generate hot water economically for you.

Tankless water heater systems it quickly heat cold water when the hot water tap is turned on. This hot water travels into the unit through a pipe. Most importantly, hot water keeps flowing continuously, and there is no fear of running out of hot water suddenly. It has been observed that households consuming around 40 gallons of water per day can save between 25% and 35% energy just by replacing their standard water heaters with the tank less ones.

However, it is important to note that the upfront cost is more for the installation of tankless water heaters. Moreover, these water heaters may not be ideally suited for every situation. However, it can be the perfect money saving alternative if the installation satisfies the following criteria.

  • If your bathroom is far apart from the tank water heater. By installing a tank less heater for this location, you can eliminate both long waits and high energy consumption.
  • Similarly, cloth washers that are away from the hot water heater tend to get filled up with the cold water even before the hot water gets there from the tank. Therefore, it is a great alternative to have a tank less heating system closer to the cloth washer.
  • Tank less heating systems are also of a great use for second home or a summer cabin where you visit once in a while.
