Four Reasons to Consider a Tankless Propane Water Heater

Why pay to heat water you’re not going to use – or to reheat already warmed water that’s been sitting in a tank?

That’s the thinking behind a tankless propane water heater, which instantly heats the water you need – and only the water you need – to use.

Operating this way gives a tankless system some advantages over a conventional water heater (one with a storage tank), including:

  1. Virtually unlimited hot water – A tankless water heater can warm your water about as fast as cold water can circulate through it, so you’ll never run out (as long as your water heater is right-sized for your home – contact us to learn more about right-sizing your water heater).
  2. Lower bills – Since a tankless system only operates when you need hot water, you’ll use less energy to run it – as much as 20 percent less. Less energy used means lower bills for you.
  3. More placement flexibility – Since they don’t have a tank, tankless systems are about the size of a suitcase – much smaller than conventional water heaters. That means a tankless system can used housed in crawl spaces, attics, and other spaces too small for a conventional water heater. If you’re space challenged, a tankless system is the way to go.
  4. More value for your home – A tankless water heater can improve your Home Energy Rating System (HERS) and LEED scores, which can add value to your home if you choose to sell it down the road (a high efficiency conventional water heater can do this, too).

Of course a conventional water heater can be a great choice, too – as long it’s powered by propane and not electricity!
