One of the most energy hungry appliances in your home is your water heating system. On average, water heating makes up 14-18% of energy bills nationwide, with an annual cost of $400-$600 per household. Know your options, and let R & A help you make informed decisions about how to lower your heater’s energy consumption, and improve its efficiency.
Conventional water heaters (with a storage tank) have the lowest purchase cost, but the maintenance and repairs are more expensive. They can be expected to heat your water for 10-15 years.
Tankless water heaters heat water instantly without the need for a tank, and therefore, don’t have the same standby energy losses that are associated with storage tank heaters. Tankless systems utilize a pump that sends hot water to a bathroom or kitchen “on demand.” These instantaneous water heaters are more efficient than storage tank water heaters because they eliminate the need to keep a tank heated when it’s not being used.
Tankless heaters are becoming more and more popular because they aren’t inhibited by their size; they just need a power source and a water supply line to deliver water to the system. Another reason these water heating systems are becoming so popular is that they save homeowners a significant amount of money through their superior energy efficiency; they can be 20-34% more efficient than storage water heaters, and can last well over 20 years. And how great would it be to have instant hot water that never runs out?! The last person to take a shower in a home with a tankless water heater will have just as much hot water as the first!
Depending on the type, a tankless water heater can fulfill your hot water needs for just one bathroom, or the entire house. Another reason you would want a tankless water heater is because it can provide access to quick and efficient hot water at a location separate from the main house, such as a mother-in-law suite (above the garage), guest house, or shed. When you choose to install a tankless water heater, you’ll have plenty of unit sizes and installation locations to choose from. More and more brands are making more and more models. An R & A professional can help get you more information when making an informed decision about what hot water needs you have.
Solar water heaters are the most expensive options, but can potentially save thousands of dollars in the long run because they are the most energy efficient heater. They are about 50% more efficient than gas or electric water heaters, but might require a back-up system for cloudy days or times of high hot water demand.
