Using hot water costs you money in two ways. You pay the Water System for the water you use, and you pay for the gas or electricity to heat the water. You can save water and money by changing to a tankless water heater with the help of Benjamin Franklin Plumbing.
Conventional Water Heaters
In the conventional water heating system setup, cold water flows into a tank that may hold between 30 and 80 gallons of water. A heater, powered by gas or electricity, brings the water up to a predetermined temperature and holds it in the tank until you call for it at a faucet or appliance. The heating element must cycle on and off throughout the day and night to keep the water at the proper temperature.
Switching to a tankless system eliminates the need to spend money on keeping water hot when you are not using it. Tankless heaters work on demand. When you open a tap, cold water passes through the heater and delivers hot water to you. You heat only as much water as you will use.
Instant Hot Water
One of the features of a tankless water heater is that it delivers hot water noticeably faster than a conventional heater. You will save water because you will not have to run the water while waiting for the cold water in a conventional tank to heat up. Tankless units have infinite hot water ready whenever you need it.
