Can You Really Get Enough Hot Water from a Tankless Water Heating System?

Propane tankless water heater

Posted: April 22, 2015

We continue to get a lot of questions from customers who are intersted in converting their old water heating storage tank to a propane tankless water heatering unit. Most people are frankly astonished when they learn that a little box mounted on a wall—instead of a bulky tank—can actaully make all of the hot water they will ever need. Here’s how it happens.

A propane tankless water heater uses a flame so hot you don’t need to keep water sitting in a storage tank, eating up energy dollars while it waits to be used. You simply turn on a hot-water faucet. A flow sensor inside that“little box“ will activate a propane gas burner to heat the water. The heating will continue until you turn off the faucet, at which point the gas burner shuts off.

Many customers also want to know if a propane tankless water heater will save them money. Again, the answer is yes. Propane tankless water heaters save an average of about $90 every year on hot-water costs, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. And since most tankless units have a life expectancy of more than 20 years, about twice as long as a standard tank water heater, that adds up to big savings.

For a limited time, we can help you qualify for rebates of up to $200 on a propane tankless water heater. And if you install a tankless water heater by July 31, we’ll give you an additional $100 discount. Please contact us today to learn more.
