Do You Know the Benefits of a Tankless Water Heater? (Infographic)
Heating water for bathing, washing, cooking and other uses is typically the second largest consumer of energy in a home. The choice of a water heater will impact the long-term cost of living in a home, as well as the comfort of having reliable and conveniently available hot water over the years.
In a new home, particularly one that's planning to meet high performance building standards such as ENERGY STAR, Zero Energy Ready Home, or the National Green Building Standard, selection of the water heater plays a big part in the home's energy efficiency. For existing homes, choosing a water heater usually occurs when the old one fails, or there's a big change in the home.
One of the biggest changes of the past few years is the growth of tankless, or on-demand, water heater options available to owners of homes and buildings. Today, tankless water heaters are an affordable, high performance alternative to other options such as traditional tank water heaters or boilers.
