In our last blog, we talked about some of the warning signs of a failing water heater. If you found some, we feel your pain, but we also have some news that might take some of the sting out of your discovery: thanks to our friends at Propane North Carolina, you could save $150 on a new tankless propane water heater.
Not familiar with tankless water heaters? Here’s a rundown of some of their most important benefits.

The tankless water heater advantage

You use about 60-70 gallons of hot water every day in your sinks, showers, baths, dishwasher and washing machine. The problem is you’re probably paying to heat more water than that.
If your water heater has a storage tank, then your hot water spends most of its day in your basement waiting to be used, losing heat by the minute. That water has to be hot and ready when you need it – which means that you could be paying to heat your water twice, or even several times, during the course of a day.
You could slow the loss of heat in your storage tank (also known as standing loss) by insulating your hot water storage tank – an option we highly recommend if you have a conventional water heater. But that will simply slow the pace of standing loss; if you want to eliminate it altogether, there’s only one way to do it: install a tankless propane water heater.
A tankless system uses a powerful heating element to instantly warm the water you need – and only the water you need – for your taps and appliances. By operating this way, a tankless system enjoys some big advantages over tank-based water heaters, including:

  1. Unlimited hot water – Imagine never running out of hot water in the shower –even if the dishwasher and washing machine are running!
  2. Lower bills – By operating only when hot water is needed (and not using a pilot light), a tankless system will cut your monthly bills – sometimes by 40 percent or more.
  3. More placement flexibility – Tankless systems are small (about the size of a suitcase) and can be wall mounted – which means you can put them in crawl spaces, attics, closets, and other tight spaces.
  4. More home value – A tankless water heater will improve your Home Energy Rating System (HERS) and LEED scores, which adds value to your home if you sell it.

Tankless water heaters do cost more than conventional water heaters, but they also last longer – about 50-60 percent longer, on average. And with the money you’re saving on energy bills, your investment will quickly pay for itself (especially when you consider the $150 rebate!).
Of course conventional water heaters can still be a cost-effective option for you, especially if you plan to sell your home in the near future. Either way, LG Jordan has you covered with options for every home and budget.
