Did you know that about 20% of a typical home’s energy costs involve heating your water? From washing your hands to showering to operating appliances like dishwashers and washing machines, it’s estimated that a family of four will use, on average, 60-70 gallons of hot water each day.
That’s why selecting an efficient and reliable water heater is so critical — and propane powers some of today’s most efficient water heating technologies.
One great option is a tankless propane water heater.
If you have a traditional water heater now, it heats water and then stores it until you need it. In many cases – especially if it is in an unheated space and not properly insulated – a tank water heater will lose heat as time goes by.
With a tankless water heater, when you turn on an appliance or open your hot water faucets, water circulates through a heat exchanger in the tankless unit and delivers hot water on-demand. This change can result in a 40% improvement in efficiency, permitting virtually unlimited access to hot water.
