9 Things On Home Improvement Plumbing

This prompts many homeowners to look for ways to cut costs, and one option is to install a more energy efficient water heater . Compared to tank-style gas heaters, on-demand gas heaters are about 22% more energy efficient. If your household only used 40 gallons of water or less per day, the tankless device could be as much as 24-34% more energy efficient than a traditional model. How much does this put back in your pocket? Research shows that 22% higher energy efficiency of a tankless water heater is equal to about $70-80 savings per year. If you consider the cost difference of $1,000 calculated above, saving at the rate of $80/year would mean that you would recoup the cost of the tankless heater only in 12.5 years. In reality, research shows that you would recoup this cost in about 22 years, because the difference in prices for these heaters is usually more than $1,000 and you will spend more over the years to maintain a tankless vs. storage model. Keep in mind that life expectancy for most tankless devices is about 20 years+. From this you can gather than a tankless water heater will most likely come to the end of its service life, BEFORE you will recoup its high initial cost in energy savings. You should keep in mind that most gas (not electric) tankless water heaters qualify for a state tax rebate (around $300).
