Tankless Water Heaters – A Need Or A Craze?

Tankless water heaters in Texas are not simply an ecological craze but a need, these days. Most Texas families have a desire to save money and what better way to do so than invest in a tankless water heater which can cut your water heating costs by up to 50 percent. Compared to traditional heaters, these tankless heaters do not waste energy.

These eco-friendly water heaters give you the warm or hot water you need when you need it. Yet, it isn’t connected to a storage tank and neither does it heat the whole tank and waste energy. The conventional heater heats up your storage tank even when there is no need for it. You may be at work; your kids may be at school and there may be no one at home; yet your conventional heater keeps on running.

Tankless water heaters function in a rather different manner. They are designed to heat the tap water that goes through the pipes. These units do not start heating until the tap water passes through the cylinder or pipe thus saving energy yet giving you the hot or warm water that you and your family may need. Thus, you do not pay for heating when you are out of town or when no one needs hot water.

You can imagine how much in utility costs your family can save by investing in one of these eco-friendly heaters. However, if you belong to a rather large Texas family, you may not be able to do several things at the same time such as washing the dishes while someone else takes a hot shower.  If your family is environmentally minded, then you can manage to schedule these activities so that you do not overload your tankless water heater. On the other hand you may also consider getting two of these eco-saving heaters so that multiple water heating needs can be met  simultaneously. Most plumber s and electricians would know how to design  the heater set-up  for you in accordance to your specific needs.

The most recent type of tankless heater saves you even more because it is powered by solar energy. It is the latest heater technology and had been previously manufactured  mostly in China. They are now available in the USA and while the initial cost may be more than tankless water heaters run using electricity or gas, the ongoing cost of using this technology is limited only by the sun.

Several Texas families who have switched from the conventional heater to the tankless water heater say that these water heaters are dependable  and even more efficient than the traditional one. They also point out that most of them have saved about eighty to ninety percent on their water heating expenses while still enjoying warm or hot water when they want and need it.
