Homeowners Go Tankless to Resolve Hot Water Woes

The average household has enough to worry about each day from deciding when to start dinner to which load of laundry to wash first. The last thing anyone needs to worry about is having sufficient hot water for giving the kids baths, washing dishes, doing laundry or, if youre lucky relaxing in a long, hot shower. This, among other reasons, is why so many homeowners are making the decision to go tankless.
Rinnai tankless water heaters give homeowners the flexibility of on-demand hot water whenever they need it. Because the water is heated only as needed, theres always enough to meet the demands of hot showers, baths, laundry and dishwashing even if these are done simultaneously. With a traditional tank-style water heater, however, once the stored water is depleted, it can take up to 33 minutes to heat the tank again.
Todays homeowners are realizing they dont have to schedule their lives around their hot water anymore, and many also want to make wise long-term home improvement investments with significant return. The decision to go tankless simply makes sense, explains Kerri Walker, senior marketing manager at Rinnai.
According to the U.S. Department of Energys Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy website, tankless water heaters can be 24 to 34 percent more efficient than a traditional tank-style water heater, depending on a homes daily hot-water demand. Some tankless units, such as those manufactured by Rinnai, allow homeowners to save up to 40 percent on energy bills because a tankless unit does not have to heat and re-heat like a traditional water tank does.
No one leaves their car on all the time, as among other things it would waste too much gas. Tankless technology is of a similar mindset. Youre using energy only when you need hot water, adds Walker.
