Lowers Your Energy Bills
When you have a traditional water heater, water is constantly heated in order to maintain the set temperature, whether it is used or not. In contrast, tankless water heaters in Fort Worth only heat water when you open a hot water tap. By eliminating the need to maintain a ready supply of hot water in a tank, energy is saved. This lowers your energy bill each month.
Less Space Used
The traditional water heater is a large appliance that can take up a large amount of space. However, the tankless water heater takes up very little space at all. This leaves additional space for you to use in other purposes.
Endless Hot Water
Tankless water heaters in Fort Worth feature endless hot water. With a conventional water heater once the hot water in the tank is used, it takes approximately 55 minutes before a tank of hot water is again ready for your use. The tankless water heater produces hot water as long as it’s needed. If your family takes back-to-back showers, the hot water will never run out.
Point of Use vs. Whole House Tankless Water Heaters
Tankless water heaters are available as a whole house or point of use hot water heater. A whole house is exactly what it says; it provides hot water for the entire home. Point of use tankless water heaters serves a single location, such as the bathroom on the backside of the house. A distant bathroom with a long pipe run wastes water and the energy to heat water. A point of use tankless water heater is ideal for remote locations, including garages, hobby shops, pool houses, outdoor kitchens and more.
