(Newswire.net -- February 9, 2014) Plainfield, IL -- The average U.S. household spends $400-$600 per year on water heating, accounting for the second largest energy expenditure after space heating and cooling. By heating water only when it’s needed, tankless water heaters reduce water heating expenses and eliminate energy waste associated with traditional storage water heaters. An ENERGY STAR certified tankless water heater installed by DRF Trusted Property Solutions can save the typical family more than $1700 on natural gas costs over the lifetime of the water heater. Large families can save even more.
Old, inefficient storage water heaters keep tens of gallons of water hot and ready for use, wasting large amounts of energy. The water heater continues to work, burn energy, increase your utility bill, and impact your carbon footprint, whether you are home or not, using the hot water or not. The larger the water heater tank, the more energy wasted. Chicago tankless water heaters only heat water as it is being used, reducing the amount of energy required to maintain hot water temperatures. With a tankless water heater, when the hot water is turned off, Chicago homeowners are saving money.
In addition to saving money and energy, tankless water heaters provide a number of additional benefits for Chicago families. Tankless models maintain a continuous flow of hot water, so no family member will have to suffer through a cold shower. The hot water is always there when you need it. Gas tankless water heaters are small and wall-mounted, saving space compared to a storage tank water heater, and eliminating potential damage from flood waters. Tankless water heaters have a life expectancy of 20 years and longer, double that of traditional water heaters. Tankless models also eliminate the risk of tank leaks and water damage, almost a guarantee with a storage tank water heater.
If you are one of the 27 million households with a storage tank water heater that is more than 10 years old, don’t wait for failure to replace it. Water heater failure will leave you with a big mess, not to mention, no hot water. Be proactive and take the time to choose the best tankless water heater for your Chicago home. Often, utility companies will provide rebates for energy efficient water heater installation. Working with a Chicago area utility trade ally such as DRF Trusted Property Solutions, will ensure you get the best water heating solution, safe and code-compliant installation, and access to all available rebates and incentives.
