What should you get your beloved for Valentine’s Day? Roses and chocolates? Too boring and ordinary. A restaurant dinner or a romantic weekend getaway? Over too soon. What will make your beloved’s life better, last a long time, and really be worth the investment? How about a tankless water heater for Valentine’s Day?
A tankless system will take up a lot less space than your old standby or tank-style water heater. This frees up plenty of room for reorganizing the basement… which might be another present that your beloved would really appreciate. This also means it’s much easier for your installers to carry from the truck, into your home, up or down stairs to the place where it will be installed. Consider that a Valentine’s gift to them!
A tank water heater keeps a large amount of water ready at all times. This means it is constantly using energy to heat and reheat that water. Even if you’re away from home for twelve hours—or twelve days—the system keeps using that energy.
In contrast, a tankless water heater only generates heat when hot water is called for. This means your energy bills will be lower each month. Keeping your energy use lower is also good for the environment, so you can consider that a Valentine to Mother Earth!
It’s not just energy that you’ll use less of with a tankless water heater system. They also tend to reduce the amount of water your household will go through. Again, this is a reduction of a utility bill as well as a benefit to the earth.
Never Run Out of Hot Water Again
This is the biggest benefit, the one that your beloved will enjoy every day. With a storage or tank water heater, the hot water will at some point run out. Taking a too-long shower, or taking a shower right after someone else has, can lead to standing there in water that’s getting colder and colder. Then it takes quite a while for the newly-refilled tank to heat up again.
A tankless water heater can supply endless hot water in amounts ranging from 2-5 gallons per minute, depending on the exact system. As long as you don’t have a variety of hot water uses happening at the same time—say, running the dishwasher and doing a hot load of laundry at the same time that you’re showering—this amount will keep you in hot water essentially forever (or for the lifetime of the system).
We’d be delighted to talk with you about all the options for a tankless system for your home so that the love of your life can enjoy those endless hot showers.
