Tankless Water Heaters

slider-tankless-2Hot water shouldn’t be a luxury.

For any homeowner in the market for a water heater, wanting to lower utility bills or simply choosing to help the environment, a tankless water heater may be a good option.

Tankless water heaters are up to 98% energy efficient.  Standard water heaters with a tank are up to 62% efficient.  The difference in efficiency equals annual energy savings.

Energy efficient choices can save homeowners about a third on their energy bill, according to ENERGY STAR, a joint program of the U.S. Department of Energy.

Benefits of going tankless:

  • Hot water is on demand.  There’s no waiting for water to heat or reheat.
  • You won’t run out of hot water.
  • Longer warranty than a water heater with a tank.
  • Tankless water heaters last about three times longer.
  • Pulls the air from the outside instead of heated air from your home.

You should be looking for a water heater if your current tank system is 7-10 years old.

*Tankless rebates are available from Vectren and other gas utilities.  For more information about the rebates visit your utility company’s website.
