On average, an American home uses about 60-70 gallons of hot water for its appliances and taps…and with everyone home as much as they are these days, that number could be on the low side.
The problem is you’re probably paying to heat even more water than that, even if you’re not using it.
If your water heater has a storage tank, then the water it heats spends most of its day cooling off as it waits to be used. If it gets too cool, your water heater will have to heat it again – and you’ll pay to heat it again.
You could slow the loss of heat in your storage tank by insulating your hot water storage tank – an option we highly recommend if you have a conventional (storage-type) 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 propane tankless water heater.
A tankless water heater produces the hot water on demand rather than heating water and storing it in a tank for later use. By operating this way, it enjoys some key advantages over a traditional water tank-based water heater, including:
While the initial purchase price of a tankless water heater can be significantly higher than that of a conventional water heater, the energy savings and equipment longevity can make costs a wash (pardon the pun). The bottom line: a tankless water heater can be a great option – as long as it is sized and installed by professionals like the ones you will always find at Ace-Robbins.
