You might consider a tankless water heater if you’re looking for ways to save on monthly electric or gas bills.
Tankless water heaters can provide huge energy savings and endless hot water. They can also lead to far less water waste–which is a key consideration in drought-stricken areas like California.
Traditional hot water heaters–either gas or electric–provide gallons of hot water at one time. Depending on your family size and demand, 50 or 60-gallon tank may be sufficient. Or, you may need a larger tank with a 60-80 gallon capacity. The typical 80-gallon tank heater heats enough water to provide for showers, run a dishwasher, and do a load of laundry–all at the same time!
The downside of tank heaters, however, lies in standby energy loss, which can be significant with traditional hot water heaters. Plus, once you’ve used up the hot water supply, it can take 20-60 minutes before it’s fully charged again.
