Question: How old is the water heater in your home?
If it’s 10 years old or older, it’s living on borrowed time. That’s right. Ten years is the average life expectancy for a conventional water heater with a tank!
That might mean for you that now is the time to start planning for replacing your water heater. It’s a decision you don’t want to defer until your water heater fails to figure out! Not only could you have a messy and expensive cleanup to deal with, but you will be rushed in deciding on a new water heater without the proper knowledge or information.
We don’t want that to happen to you!
So, when you do decide to replace your water heater, we want to let you know that it’s the perfect opportunity to upgrade to a propane tankless water heater!
What’s better? LG Jordan sells, installs, and services top-quality propane tankless water heaters from Rinnai! We can also help you secure rebates on a qualifying tankless water heater installation.
Why choose a propane tankless water heater over a storage heater with a tank?
We have three key reasons:
The initial cost of a propane tankless water heater is higher than that of most storage water heaters. However, this is an investment that pays off over time.
A propane tankless water heater earns its keep when you see savings in your energy bill. Water heating constitutes for approximately 20% of one’s home’s energy costs, so a 40% savings vs. your current energy costs is quite substantial.
You are also investing in longevity, as propane tankless water heaters last on average for 20 years—nearly twice as long as conventional storage water heaters!
Installing a propane-based tankless water heater can add to the value and attractiveness of your home if you plan on selling in the future, too.
Conventional storage water heaters need to keep your hot water at a set temperature, so you always have it available. They won’t turn off even if you haven’t needed any hot water for hours.
This means that the water heater is using energy all day and night to reheat your cold tap water whenever it’s finally needed.
A propane tankless water heater only heats water as you use it, which reduces your energy consumption. By converting your electric water heater to a propane-fueled system is not only more efficient but will heat twice as much water in the same amount of time.
A propane tankless water heater makes the quality of life in your home much better.
While tanked water heaters take up a lot of space, the lack of storage tanks in tankless systems frees up that space to put it elsewhere.
You have constant access to hot water because you don’t have to wait for the water heater to reheat a full tank of water after someone else has taken a shower. You also can take showers while your dishwasher runs without having to worry about running out of hot water!
