The average water heater lasts about eight to 12 years, so homeowners can expect to replace theirs at least once — probably multiple times.
Ever since tankless water heaters gained popularity in the 1990s, people have debated whether it’s worth replacing a traditional water heater with a tankless model. This can be a difficult choice since tankless water heaters are generally more expensive and require a more complex installation.
Even so, going tankless is an excellent decision for your budget and quality of life. As a bonus, Roach Energy is offering eastern Panhandle households some stellar discounts to make the change!
How Do Tankless Water Heaters Work?
The combination of propane power and tankless technology gives families access to instant hot water on demand.
A propane tankless water heater uses a flame that is so intense that it does not require the continual heating of water in a tank. Once you turn on a faucet, a flow sensor activates the propane burner to heat your water. This heat keeps coming until you shut off the faucet and the burner turns off.
This produces a hot water flow rate of approximately 222 gallons per hour. That’s over three times the delivery rate of a 50-gallon electric storage tank water heater!
Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters
Propane tankless water heaters are becoming more popular because they reliably, conveniently, and efficiently produce huge amounts of hot water. That means no more waiting for a tank to refill so you can take a comfortable shower.
They’re also fantastic for your home energy budget. Consumer Reports recently ran the numbers and found that propane-fired tankless water heaters are approximately 22% more efficient than traditional storage tank models. The reason is that tankless units eliminate standby energy loss. In storage tank systems, unused water in the tank is reheated, which leads to wasted fuel use.
Conversely, tankless systems heat water on demand. This requires a lot of energy when the water is on, but those standby savings more than make up for it. In fact, changing to a tankless model can reduce your water-heating costs by 50 percent.
